About Tiffani
Hey There! My name is Tiffani and I can't wait to meet you and get you started on your own path to learning English, writing a novel, or reducing your accent. I have been a Freelance Writer since 1996 and an educator since 2005. I'm the author of four books and thousands of articles and news stories, and I'm certified in ESL and CASAS testing.

I'm also an experienced needle, designer and teacher. I have been teaching crochet for more than 10 years, and I'd love to teach you how to make something beautiful using this easy, elegant craft.

My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine.

I have a flexible teaching style, and my bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science and my 15+ year history in working with students with special needs, allows me to approach lessons from many differ
ent angles. No matter your difference, I am the teacher who can help you reach your goals because your goals are my goals.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2005. I'm available most days of the week (check out my calendar), and I can work with you online through Skype, in person in the Allentown area at a coffeehouse or your home. Contact me for specific details, and I'll get back to you right away.

Learning a new language, or how to launch your freelance writing career, can be daunting, but you have everything within you to be successful. I'm here to help share my gifts, education, and experience with you. Contact me today, so I can help you reach your goals and realize your dream. Blessings!

About Marian
I am a guitar teacher with 10+ years of experience teaching all different styles of music. Blues, Folk, Acoustic, funk, ska, Rock, Metal, Melodic, Country, Classical, Punk, Alternative, and various other melodies. I have played concerts all over the state of Illinois and I have taught many students throughout the years. I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. I am very passionate at what I do and I will guide you through the proper steps in becoming a great guitar player. Playing music takes a lot of time and patience as well as a lot of practice playing by yourself and in front of people. I am very relaxed and motivated to help my students learn and I will guide you through everything.

I would prefer that students bring their own guitars so that you would be more comfortable playing your own instrument, if you can
't or do not have one, I have guitars here that you may use but during our sessions only.

CHECK OUT MY VIDEO.

With a lot of practice and a lot of studying, I can show you how to play like a Pro an have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
In my curriculum, students will start off by learning the basics of the guitar, knowing the parts,accessories and so forth. Then We will move on to Tuning and Perfect pitch. As we move on students will learn how to build and maintain a Rhythm.

Learning how to play chords is essential, and we will be going through chord progress
ions and how to recognize and memorize the various chords.
Furthermore, i will be showing students how to Read Tabs and write music. I will be showing students the different types of scales that there as well as the keys that they are in for those who want to become soloists. I will also be teaching different techniques that are incorporated with Tapping on the fretboard as well as various other techniques.

All of these lessons will be taught in our private sessions, and each student will receive homework assignments, so that they can go home and practice what they have learned. I will be having tests later on, in which i would ask you to play one of your favorite songs.

With enough time spent practicing, you can become a master of your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement Studio: amps, guitars, wah pedals, music stands, guitar picks, and music sheets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have an amp, wires, picks, guitars,gig bag,case, music sheets, picks, and music stands.

*** Specialties ***
My styles include Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Funk, Pop, Classical,Country, Classic Rock, Metal, Thrash, Alternative, Punk Rock, Folk, and various other Melodies.

About Karla
Hello! My name is Karla and I love all things artsy and crafty. I learned to sew when I was 9 and have been improving my skills since then by taking classes or just trying things out on my own. I'm currently taking classes to get certified as a Pattern Maker, which is another passion of mine linked to the fashion industry. I've also spent the last year and a half building my Etsy shop for custom designed clothing for women and children. Since I also have my degree in Theater and Dance I enjoy being a freelance costume designer for dance or theater companies; creating custom designs for their shows.

Karla was great! She was helpful and patient and have great feedback. I was skeptical about doing an online sewing class but she had a great camera which allowed her to zoom on her stitching so you could see exactly what to do! I will be signing up for more classes :)

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church in Milpitas, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple y
et profound way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.

About Olivia
I began studying astrology in 2010 after moving to a remote area for a change of scenery and received my certification from The School of Evolutionary Astrology in 2013.

On a personal level, I started looking into astrology because I felt my sign didn’t hit every angle of my being. When I read about other signs growing up, I always felt a part of me identified with each of them. I began my studies with the intention of discovering for myself if astrology was “for real” and it lead me to a treasure trove of self-discovery.

A common misconception about astrology is that it will tell you your future and it’s set in stone. In medieval times, when astronomers and astrologers were one in the same, astrology was only practiced with royalty to discern the potential of an heir. Those times were fragile for humanity day to day, and had a ten
dency to view cause and effect on a fatalistic scale.
Centuries later, the understanding of Astrology and its concepts have evolved. Particularly in Evolutionary Astrology, each soul has free will, there is no sealed fate. What it does show us is the potential of each soul. The planets provide the energy to produce the opportunities for the potential, the soul gets to choose to take it and if so, how it takes it.

It is my belief that astrology provides an empowering method of self-discovery. It is a central focus in my teaching to create an encouraging and safe atmosphere that allows students to look at dynamics in their lives and not only understand the root of it, but provide practical tools that help heal and lead to solutions. With this, I maintain a comfortable pace when working with more sensitive topics and areas of experience to prevent overwhelm.

Although astrology is a metaphysical and occult subject, my approach in teaching does not stray from “the real world”, so to speak. My students aren’t left in the fog deciphering whimsical metaphors that they can’t apply to their everyday life. They gain through each lesson a more comprehensive understanding to what they can utilize as a universal language. My rule of thumb is that if you can label opposing themes, hot vs. cold or wet vs. dry, then you can l learn astrology. If you find yourself connecting symbols throughout your day, you can learn astrology.
