***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***The standard, landmark program for creating, processing, and editing texts with dynamic visual and macro integration. I have used it for many years during my education and professional experience.

Possibly the only dedicated PhD for E-Learning on the TakeLessons server, I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.

About Erol
***ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY. Lesson cancellations and schedule changes need to be submitted through Takelessons.com student website, relieve busy teacher from multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools: ESL and Speech students learn to monitor their own phonological issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ensuring relevant resources for Excel and related productivity lessons.

Due to my limited funds
, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. Possibly the only PhD on Takelessons server from a regionally accredited university, I am a member of the American Council on Foreign Language Learning and the Association for Language Learning.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

He seems to have a lot of experience in helping students reduce their accent. Unlike some instructors I've had in the past, he will ensure that the student's pronunciation is truly accurate before moving on to the next word. Moreover, his schedule is pretty flexible and he will provide a full length lesson even if the lesson starts late.

I work with computers (Windows / Mac) for almost 20 years. Expert in office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Pages, Numbers, Keynote).

Started early to use Excel for business and created sheets for an executive of a big German Company when I was 19.

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I can get you started on using MS Word, then build your skills to help you provide specific needs for documents.

About Liz
I enjoy helping people learn how to work with computers (Mac or PC). I have been teaching for 15+ years, and work comfortably with beginners, seniors and business clients.

I am often told I am a very patient teacher. I adapt my teaching style to each student and I can provide printed instructions for you to use after our computer lessons. I can help you learn what you need to know to use a computer: for work, for school or for yourself.

I have been teaching QuickBooks at universities, community colleges and small businesses for more than 15 years (QuickBooks for PC, Mac, and QuickBooks Online).

I have taught Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Word (for both Windows and Apple/Mac computers) for many years. I also have quite a bit of experience teaching MS Access, MS Project, MS Visio, MS Publisher, and Adobe InDesign, Adobe Drea
mweaver, HTML for web pages, and Filemaker Pro.

Please note: Students in Manhattan and some other New York City locations, suburbs and New Jersey, I am willing to travel farther with an added amount for bridge and tunnel fees. Please use the "Ask Liz a Question" button to send me a message, so we can discuss your location, and the price required for me to travel out to you.

Worst experience, complete waste of my money. I could write several paragraphs detailing all the things that occurred that frustrated me, but I will just list a few facts: Could not answer most of my process questions. Very frustrating, but Liz said she would get back to me on the 3 specific questions that I very much needed. I made sure to review the still open questions 2-3 times before the end of our waste of time session. She never got back to me, even after several follow-up requests.

No worries, TakeLessons has a Satisfaction guarantee, right? WRONG. Come to find out they will refund any unspent money. Because Liz demanded to get paid for her time, tho, I was 100% unhappy, TakeLessons refunded the $12 booking fee.

I tried and tried to get satisfaction from both Liz and TakeLessons before resorting to writing this review. I guess TakeLessona thinks it is OK for their instructors to not perform and still get paid. So disappointed in both.

I've been tutoring professionally for over 30 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate Microsoft Word student.

I have a unique lesson plan with an emphasis on introduction/basics of Microsoft Word. Most of my students learn the basics of Microsoft Word in just one hour and are amazed by just how proficient they have become in such a short amount of time. However, I customize each lesson to go at the learning speed of the student. So, we can go as fast or as slow as the student would like.

Want to create a letter? How about mailing labels? Interested in learning to create a newsletter/brochure with text, images, charts, and more? Want to learn to work faster and more efficiently by employing keyboard shortcuts?

Send me a message to see how I can help you become proficient with Microsoft Word!

About Jason
I've been tutoring individuals, small businesses, and corporate employees to become proficient in using their computers and applications since 1985, and I can help you do the same. I have the experience to get you where you want to go. I can help you learn all about Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook).

I'm very patient and I pace all my lessons at the learning speed of my student - as fast or slow as they need so they don't feel overwhelmed. Naturally, it takes a few times practicing the usage before someone feels confident, but I can help you become proficient in using your applications. I enjoy teaching people about their computers, and it makes me happy to see them become proficient in using their applications.

I learned a great deal from Jason. He was very patient, and it's clear that he knows what he's doing. I also appreciate the practice aids he provided me to continue practicing after our sessions were over. He's also very fair: when we had a mix up in our meeting time, he was very quick to follow up, and make sure that we didn't miss a beat. I look forward to continuing to use him as a resource in the future.

About David
Hello,

My name is Dave,

In my day job, I run a cybersecurity company and we do analysis of organizations and report on how compliant they are on various regulations and standards related to privacy and data management. I also do a lot of research in collaboration with universities and have been part of the writing of over 150 research papers on cyber security, some of them are published publicly and available.

I spend most of my time actually developing educational materials or running educational workshops on cybersecurity so education is natural for me.

I have a Bachelor of Commerce from Algonquin College / Athabasca University. I also have completed many training programs related to information technology and have worked in the IT field for thirty years. I have also studied philosophy, math and music.

I am familiar with network
s, computers, servers, gaming and general software configuration, troubleshooting and best practices.

I have a strong background with the MS-Office suite, in particular with implementing special solutions involving the VBA back end that every office app has.

I have created and run educational seminars regarding cybersecurity and have worked with students of varying skill and experience levels to reach specific educational milestones.

Currently I am working on a large project with a post secondary institution to deliver some of our research as course materials to a large number of students.

Finally, I (and you too if you got to this point) have a lot of patience and will adjust my approach based on the person and situation sot hat we can communicate effectively and move forward with the educational goals at hand.

Thanks,
Dave

I can navigate this program very well on Mac OSX, and I can do a pretty decent job on Windows, as well.

About Mihaela
I like to try to be the most helpful I can be! Let me know what you would need help with, and I'll respond, whether or not I can help you. My passion is to play violin and to help students.

I went to a Seventh-day Adventist school from Kindergarten to grade twelve. Then, I went to a Seventh-day Adventist university. After that, I volunteered as an elementary school teacher in Majuro, Marshall Islands for two years (2015-2017).

I then was a teacher's aid in Port Hardy, British Columbia in the 2017-2019 school year. From September - December 2018, I taught grades 1,3, and 4 in a small Seventh-day Adventist school in Bella Coola, British Columbia. Now, I'm an on-call teacher aid / teacher for all the schools in the Bella Coola valley. These schools include School District 49, Nuxalk Acwsalcta Academy of Learning, and the Seventh-day A

Mihaela is classically trained, but enjoys all kinds of music for fiddle/violin, and is quick at picking up new melodies, and also playing by ear. This skill makes her really good at being about to help with whatever songs a student would like to learn. Because of her computer skills, she is also able to introduce the various apps that are available for enhancing practice on the instrument. She has a really good ear, and because she sings harmony well, she can also play spontaneous harmony for fiddle tunes. Mihaela is a kind, patient and fun loving person, which I think would make her great with children. I am many years her senior, and have enjoyed a few lessons with her.
