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.

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 may be asked to cover the high costs of travel to their location {not included in the Take Lessons hourly rate).

About Nikki
My name is Nikki and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching art and fashion classes since 2014. Currently I am a freelance costume designer, and I also teach some sewing classes at Brooklyn Public Schools. I love to help my students hand sew, draw designs, and use a sewing machine to make clothes they can actually wear.

I went to Parsons School of Design and earned a degree in Integrated Fashion and Costume Design in 2013. I also studied Fashion & Accessories Design and Illustration at the University of the Arts London. I'm an enthusiastic and dedicated person and my teaching style is all about being curious, and learning the tools you need in a fun and easy way.

About Chris
Hello I'm Chris! I am a Senior Software Developer specialized in website development. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a specialization in Web Applications.

I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year.
I worked as a Web Producer at Barnard College in New York City for a full semester and I also worked as a Lead Developer during three years.
I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.

Learning about computers, development in school and knowing how hard it can be, I came to a realization that what we learn is most of the time not what is being used on the job. Therefore I try to teach and give my students the exact skills they will
need in order to succeed in their careers and personal endeavors.

My lessons aim to everyone: children, teenagers and adults with all levels.
The method I use is based on active learning with interaction in order to make my students practice what they learn directly on their computers.

As a tutor but also as a professional, I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible to achieve that I make sure that my lessons are always tailored to the students and as personal as possible. I am also open to suggestions because the most important thing for me is that the students enjoys our lessons.

I am very easy going and will always answer you as fast as I can so please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

As a Software Developer I am very competent with basic computer programming. I have a very good knowledge of HTML, Javascript, CSS, JQuery, Angular and other front-end languages. I also teach about content management systems such as Wordpress and Magento.
Having worked at an IT help desk, I also have very good knowledge of computers in general such as Macbook and Windows based computers.

Please reach out if you are interested in learning about website development or just computers in general. I can not wait to help you reach your goals!

About Mark Onewolf
I began photographing family events at the age of 8 years old. I was always fascinated with how things work and the camera was no exception.
I learned to shoot with Film cameras. First with my Dad's Pentax and when I was employed I purchased my own. During my time in the Navy and Army I became good friends with a combat photographer who mentored me in photography. Long deployments were perfect to cultivate my skills and there was no shortage of people places and things to photograph.
So what makes me a good Instructor? My education background is Avionics and Electronics Engineering. I am a math and logic minded person which enables me to reverse engineer processes and break them down. I have experience teaching ESL to foreign exchange students which often requires me to understand the task from the perspective of the client so tha
t I am able to help them understand in the way they learn.
I come from a Artistic family, Music, Art, Dance, Singing etc and being a musician myself I am not just a 1's and 0 person. Photography is a very logical subject not unlike music. There are rules to bent and offers structure yet has a creative release for those of us seeking that.
My clients find that I am patient and laid back and able to explain things in multiple ways until they get that ah ha moment. I am passionate about photography and I hope my enthusiasm is contagious.
As a Professional photographer I see so many bad photos from family and friends and others posting on social media and in forums. Someone took the time to show me and feed my passion so I want to do the same and help to create better photographers and hopefully better photographs.

Mark has taught me a lot of lessons in photography. Very knowledgeable in a broad range of disciplines (i.e. long exposures, head shots, weddings, street, editing, portraiture, product, and more). Covering so many categories of photography I feel gives him the ability to answer many questions that a specialized niche photographer would lack. I am a photographer and I get paid gigs, that's how good Mark is. I received my ROI 100x over. Highly recommended.

About Daren
I am a professional actor, dancer, voiceover artist, editor, personal trainer, disc jockey (17+ years), and promotional marketer. Graduating from Pennsylvania State University in 2013, I studied labor employment studies with a law focus and minored in film/theatre. I have a very diverse skill set and take every opportunity to teach my students with patience, enthusiasm, and an attention to detail.

Recently, my TV credits have included co-starring roles on The Daily Show (Comedy Central), The Blacklist (NBC), and Blue Bloods (CBS). Since 2016, I have been the voice of a national Velveeta and Rotel ad campaign, and my voiceover experience extends to the world of video games and anime. I also starred in a sci-fi series pilot for DirecTV, currently in post-production.

Using my editing skills, I create content for a new travel vlog and
video gaming channel (Remie D Gaming on You Tube), creating professional travel videos, original video game-related comedic memes, and a personal look at my fun social experiences.

As an actor and voiceover artist, I frequently update my marketing materials including demo reels, websites, and social media. Doing so requires a fundamental knowledge of various editing programs such as Adobe Premiere Elements and Adobe Photoshop Elements. I present actual examples of what is possible using these programs and how to immediately apply the principles I teach to your projects at home or business.

For whatever you need, I look forward to helping you bring out your best personal results!

About Akutra
Being a software developer for many years, I have seen technology change. Ever since a child I was always excited to see the new features and possibilities that would come with the knowledge of new technologies. The future is amazing and expect to see aspects of it in my classes. I like to teach a complete idea to help others develop their skills which may include associated technologies and allows a full project.

I have explored many skills in technology and have a general love of technology, multiple college degrees in technology with a 4.0 grade average (University of Advancing Technology). I feel that internet marketing and internet technologies are great skills to obtain. We should all get used to workforce re-education since the world is changing and developing.

Should you have a project or business idea, I would be glad to assi
st, advise, simply comment on it, and/or even help you market it. Should you need a business idea I can teach you idea expansion and brainstorming methods to open up new possibilities as well as help you to do this for yourself in anything you do.

A windows update caused my computer to crash in a major way, I did have some backups in place but was unsure of how to use them properly to get my computer running again. Akutra was able to diagnose the exact problem with me and walk me thru step by step of how to implement my back-up and get my computer running. I learned a ton, not only about windows but the skills a good teacher shows you have within yourself.

Hey future students!

A while back, I taught myself photoshop. Since then I perfected my craft and have had hundreds of clients in my own freelance business.

It’s going to blow your mind when you learn how much power Photoshop actually gives you.
