Understanding the Basics - goes over how to navigate the interface, basic shortcut keys, adding text, working with images, and other features to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
Layers - shows you how to combine multiple images, resize them, split them apart, and add in color boxes.
Selections - starts by showing how to remove simple images from a photograph and finishes by showing how to select out strands of hair and change the background.
Color Correction - goes from simple corrections to in depth theory. It uses this theory to fix complicated photographs, change the color of a shirt from yellow to green, and even turn part of an image into black and white.
Object Removal - isn't just about how to remove a pimple. It covers removing wires, large objects such as a fencepost, and even how to get rid of something like a date stamp when it is in front of a person's face.
Beauty Retouching - I show you how to remove wrinkles, increase the size of an eye or decrease ...

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Learn how to manipulate images and apply thousands of combinations of effects to make anything from very high quality advertisements to designing beautiful websites, I have used Photoshop for just about everything, and I can teach you how to be a very effective Photoshop master.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

If you would like to learn more about photo manipulation, restoration and digital scrapbooking.... I'd be happy to teach you!

About Lisa
After graduating from college with a degree in education I was determined to change the course of the education for my own family. I was the first on either side of my entire family (all generations) ever to go to a university and graduate. I came from very humble hard working (yes bullheaded Irish) people. As a naturally highly creative person the school system was not a nurturing place at all for me. As a deeply right brained visual person the left brained system was toxic for my creativity and I struggled to thrive and be myself.

For the past 21 years I've dedicated my time, energy, creativity to home schooling my own two children and supporting them in their academic quests as well as teaching them life skills. Thankfully, I had the opportunity not to put either of them in day care one day. My focused sacrifice has been int
ense, serious, determined and planned.

The ignorant verbal flack I encountered, during these years was insane, but I didn't waver. I believe in one on one education customized for each child and knew from the start what I wanted to accomplish with both of them! I wanted them to learn how to learn with their personalities, natural strengths and talents but I had to observe and implement very different parenting and teaching techniques with both from birth.

Yes, my hard unwavering work has paid off and is continuing to pay off. Both of my children walked into their first college courses at age 14...yes, real college classes on real college campuses! Both are honor students and my first will finish his degree in English Lit/Creative Writing at UNC Asheville in Dec 2016 at age 21!

All that to say...private piano lessons are nothing more than home schooling. I bring the same customized passion I used for my own children to teach yours! Not only do I have an education degree I have a proven track record of teaching children how they uniquely need to learn whether it's visually, audio, or kinetically etc. I know how to challenge them and make them work...even the super smart lazy ones!

After each lesson I take a few moments to consult the parent(s) about the lesson and what needs to be accomplished during the students next practice week. You need to be aware of their education because they grow rapidly and there is much to accomplish before they attend college! Do some research on the benefits of learning and playing music if you are not a musician yourself. It's incredible what it will do for the development of their brain little brains!

Apparently, I'm not allowed my customary studio "meet and greet" with Takelessons. I have studio rules that must be followed and if they aren't I will not continue to teach your children. You must have a piano or keyboard for them to regularly practice on and believe me I know when they don't practice. I know what method books I like to teach from so I'll be happy to share that information with you. If you don't have any I cannot start the lessons without them. They must be purchased before hand.
There are other rules so please message me first so that we can discuss them first so that there is no confusion about the studio policies. This isn't a hobby this is serious valuable education for your child.

I don't have the time nor the energy to deal with unprofessional parents because my time and energy goes fully towards teaching amazing students.

I look forward to passionately educating you or... those you love!

Lisa

I have been a professional photographer for the past 8 years, providing portraiture, retail and commercial photography services. Adobe Photoshop is an integral part of my workflow and I spend hours a day using it to retouch my photographs as well as create graphic layouts including flyers, postcards, ads, etc.

I structure my lessons to make sure students learn the retouching skills they are hoping to master for their particular projects while providing a strong foundation in principals of using the software, including use of the plethora of tools, making sure the finished product looks natural and realistic, and of course exploring creativity.

About Scott
Although beginning my professional life in the Information Technology industry for nearly 10 years with a degree in Computer Science, for the past 8 years I have been working as a professional photographer shooting everything from Portraiture to large scale commercial projects.

Photographing people however, has always been my passion. My work has been featured in many national photography competitions, as well as being published in magazines including Lucky, InStyle and Westchester Magazine.

I also facilitate and teach photography workshops on a variety of topics for beginners all the way through advanced artists. My photo studio also provides mentoring services to up and coming photographers to help focus their artistic vision and keep their technical skills razor sharp.

I'm also available for computer tutoring as well to improv
e your technology skills and get you comfortable with the latest hardware and software applications.

About Gordon
Hello! My name is Gordon L. and I would love to help you or your child discover your passions and work towards reaching any academic or artistic goals!

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am fortunate to have had an exceptional academic foundation. I attended Punahou School K-12 earning high marks and went on to graduate college from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a variety of expertise and tutoring experience in these subjects:

- Computer Programming
- Math
- Chinese
- Humanities
- SAT

Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily investing myself in various forms of creative expression including:

- Dance (hip-hop/urban)
- Photography (DSLR, Lightroom/Photoshop)
- Card magic/Card flourishes (look it up :P)

Over the years, I have found that my enthusiasm for both people
and learning different things greatly enriches my life and those around me. If you're looking for someone who can introduce you to a variety of subjects, I'm your guy. I love learning about anything and everything and hope to encourage others to explore their passions. Furthermore, though my interests are many and varied, I have also committed years into training, have a solid grasp on their principles, and can confidently say that I am a qualified expert. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn with me!
