Sylvia was great during my first session. She was very patient and understanding being that I was new to adobe illustrator. Her step by step approach was very helpful.
William
I took my first class with Sylvia this week and she is a very good teacher. She helped me learn a new skill on first class by showing me than having me do the same tasks. She is patient, straight forward in her instructions and a clear communicator. I have signed up for 3 more classes because of my first class with her

Juliette D.
Prior to my lessons with Toshi, I'd been taught Japanese for 2 years in high school. I'd learned many nouns and sentences, but all were very basic, and I mostly learned how to repeat what was told to me. Toshi 100% catered his lessons to my goals, and taught me far more about sentence structure and language forms than I had in a large class. Definitely recommend!
Kiernan
My first Japanese lesson was excellent. Because of my weird amount of previous knowledge, we spent a large amount of the time finding my exact skill level and fixing my bad intonations, and where I need to start. It was very fun to try to communicate my own thoughts in Japanese, and Toshi was very patient with me while I fumbled my words. I look forward to future lessons and I have high hopes for the final results.
Juliette
Toshi taught Japanese to my 12-year-old son. He was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He was asking key questions about the Japanese problems to my son. My son felt comfortable with his way of tutoring, even Toshi is knowledgeable, he is not intimidating at all, he is a friendly Japanese wizard.

Many people think they can't draw. I used to be one of them. Now, I know that everyone can draw, they just need to learn how to translate what they see into an image. We will start with contour, move into gesture, create the illusion of 3D form using value and color, composition and even create the illusion of space. We will use a variety of media including graphite, charcoal, pastels (oil and chalk) and even use paint. It's really lots of fun!

About John

Hello! My name is John and I can teach you to draw and paint. I am high energy, funnier than all get out, yet have a serious love of art. Let's explore not just the technical side of drawing/painting, but let's help you discover how to express your creative self!

John was a very patient and helpful instructor. Two of the participants had no water color experience and he provided them with a good understanding of the concepts as well as providing most helpful examples of how to actually do water colors. Will definitely ask John for a follow up session if we return to Las Vegas in the future.
Beth W.
Love the way that he started in the right position for me. The class flowed very Lacey and he's a very nice man

"Thanks a whole bunch, Irina Logra! Everything about your approach oozes professionalism, practice, preparation and perfection in all respects and purposes!!! I was so fortunate to become your student this summer during my holidays in LA, it was the best choice of a tutor I could have ever made, which did open the door to new knowledge and the way to the world of photography. Appreciate so much your tailoring those precious and exciting classes to my practical need in photography for marketing aimed at marketing business business. Your tips in both subtleties and grand scale of composition are priceless. As a beginning photographer I greatly admire your talent of an artist and genuine utmost desire and ability to teach people to see, value, grasp captivating beauty of this world! After your course success in my career just got a boost!
If you don't want to waste you time and money for boring theory and dragged out session but want to plunge into practice with applicable pieces of advice meeting your specific purposes, I highly recommend you Irina Logra as photography tutor who will eventually become your friend and guide who is always in touch!"
