About Steven C.

I'VE RECEIVED BOTH OF MY VACCINATION SHOTS AS OF APRIL 20TH.

Steven C. is serving as CEO and Founder of TakeLessons, America’s leading online marketplace for finding qualified and vetted instructors. At TakeLessons, students can follow their dreams and fuel personal growth by connecting with the perfect instructor in areas ranging from music, dance and acting to foreign languages, math and photography.

Before Reddito, Steven served as Vice President of Strategic Development for CollegeClub website, the 44th largest site on the Internet. Steven’s specialty was to design and implement marketing, sales, and business operation initiatives. While at CollegeClub website, Steven started the company’s sales and business development department, opened up regional branch offices, and was responsible for the production of multi-million dollar business development deals. He was instrumental in helping the company grow from 22 employees to 300. In 2000, Student Advantage, a publicly traded company, acquired the company.

Steven is a great instructor. He is knowledgeable on the subject matter and patient in his teaching style. He encourages open communication and sharing of ideas. The material I've learned I have been able to apply. I am extremely pleased with the experience I had with Steven and would love to take more lessons in the future.
