Matthew is a wonderful teacher due to his ability to relate the material to your own experiences and understandings. He's very skilled at recognizing students' areas of difficulty and addressing them with ease. He's also passionate about what he does and his students walk away with this same passion for learning! Highly recommended!

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 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 need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

About Jordan
Learn to move, improve your dancing, get great exercise, gain confidence and have fun! Whether you are new to dance or are looking to refine your existing skills, I will help you reach your goals.

I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do! I enjoy helping my students reach their goals while having fun along the way. My favorite part about teaching is watching my students improve in ability and, more importantly, confidence, and knowing that I was able to be a helpful part of their process.

I am a choreographer, dancer, performance artist, model, and actress who has has been in music videos, commercials, TV, film, and more, so I am very familiar with the industry. I have worked with companies like Reebok, Disney, American Idol, Fox, NBC, Heineken, Universal and more. I have choreographed, taught, and performed arou
nd the world for over a decade, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those who want to learn, get some good exercise, and have a great time!

I am a versatile teacher with experience in many areas of dance, fitness, theater, character, circus, and more. I've taught all ages and levels, so anyone is welcome -especially beginners!

I am a former member of Unity LA, under the direction of Dancing with the Stars Emmy Winner, Tessandra Chavez, as well as the non-profit dance company, MusEffect- dedicated to raising awareness of social issues through performance. I have collaborated with distinguished circus troupes such as The Lucent Dossier Experience, Zen Arts, Cirque Berzerk, and others, with whom I continue to perform internationally.

I have done music videos for Cody Simpson, Bassnectar, Claude VonStroke and Bruno Furlan, Beats Antique, Lafa Taylor, Nash Overstreet, Japanese icon Namie Amuro, Ray Quinn from Britain’s Idol, and more. I have appeared on Parks and Recreation, The Disney Channel's So Random, Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, Fox Atomic’s The Comebacks, TruTV's Fake Off, and The Dance Network's Steady Mobbin’, and commercials for Tresemme, eHarmony, El Jimador, and HTV Network, amongst others.

I have also worked on Michelle Obama's “Let’s Move Burbank” Campaign, The Giffoni Film Festival, The Probowl, The Orange County Film Festival, KROQ Radio, Coachella Music Festival, The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, The American Cancer Society, Bettis Richardson on his international tour, and popular rock band Lifehouse.

I am outgoing, friendly, and fun, but most importantly-I love what I do! I enjoy sharing my passion and knowledge with my students, and focus on inspiring creativity, encouraging self-confidence, and cultivating personal achievement in everyone I work with!

Jordan is an excellent teacher who’s very patient and takes the time make sure you’re really understanding. In one half hour lesson with Jordan you can learn as much as three lessons with other tutors. I highly recommend her.

About Alexis
I am available as a track coach to people of all ages but I have previously worked with ages five through 18 in the past. My father was my coach most of my life so it is safe to say I was raised on the track and picked up many of his workout patterns. I love this sport and want to pass on my love of track to the next generation of runners.
I began running track at the age of four in my local AAU team. From there I competed every summer in the AAU Junior Olympics and placed in my respective event. As I got older I continued to compete on the high school level while running with my AAU team over the summers. While in high school I sustained many knee injuries and was not physically able to compete competitively on the colleigete level.
Today I am an undergrad student studying English looking to make some money doing what I love aga
in. My favorite and specialty event is racewalking and triple jump, but I trained as a long distance runner, and a jumper. I also have competitively competed in almost every event except the throwing events and steeplechase.

About Kendra
As a woman, managing perspectives of self vs those of others and society, being able to unapologetically embrace your beauty, your body, your sensuality and sexuality may become like a juggling act or just dropped altogether.

But You Matter! All of you-mind, body, spirit.

I am a dancer AND I am a Licensed Counselor with years of experience working with teens and young adult women through traumas and emotional and behavioral challenges. I understand how these traumas can affect us into adulthood and how we connect to our own identities and our self esteem.

I use Sensual dance and fitness as a way to reconnect and empower positive perspectives of ourselves and even to heal wounds of shame or guilt.

I am trained in ballet, contemporary and jazz and have spent my adult years teaching sensual, erotic, fitness forms of dance to women a
s well as performing in various shows of burlesque among the other genres of dance.

My sessions offer you an opportunity to glow and grow through it .... life, depression, fear, self consciousness.... healing .... in a safe space where you explore your sensuality through movement. It could take the first session to break through ... or it could take a few ... either way I am here for you. My sessions are healing for me and I hope to share that energy with you.

From celebrating your beauty, your body, your life .... to reconnecting to your self ... come share sacred space and time with Sensual Self Fitness sessions !
