Our experience has been excellent. Kelvin's lessons are a challenging supplement to my son's school orchestra program. We also appreciate Kelvin's quick response to email and accommodating a few short notice notice schedule changes. My son enjoys his weekly Skype lesson and seems to be making great progress. We highly recommend Kelvin Lin.

I bought guitar lessons as a Christmas present for my Dad and he loved his lessons from Kelvin! He said Kelvin was a great teacher and catered the lesson perfectly for my Dad's level and what he wanted to get out of the lessons.

My 13 yo niece took video editing/production lessons from Kelvin. He kept her interested & engaged. He explained things well & in a way that she could clearly understand. She was eager to do the homework he gave her and to go to the next class. I recommend Kelvin highly. He's a fantastic teacher.

A little over a year ago, after a 6 year hiatus, I was looking to get back to playing tennis again. I found Tom on this website and he was able to reintroduce me to the basics and get me to a point where I feel confident enough to join a tennis league. I am more consistent, have better footwork, and am better than I ever was.

Tom is passionate about tennis and teaching. He is friendly, patient, and tailors the lessons to match the students learning style. He has a lot of experience teaching students with a wide variety of skill levels. Tom also has played the game at the highest level, so he is able to provide insight that other less experienced instructors do not have.

If you are considering tennis lessons, I highly recommend Tom.

Dr. Joseph Merkel improved my sound with some adjustments on my first lesson! He has such a profound understanding of how to work with one's individual instrument. I look forward to continuing lessons with Dr. Merkel and advancing my vocal abilities for my professional aspirations.

Dr. Merkel is an extremely good teacher. I'm an older, beginning student in oboe. The lessons fly by, and I never fail to learn something important. He's knowledgeable, personable, and well-organized. The best!!

Hi,

I played tennis at the state level and at the national level in India. I taught students in college and still help out students with tennis skills. I LOVE tennis and would love to teach someone how to play tennis and how to get better at it. I'm ready to teach you at your home, at my place, or even just Skype with you if you just want to do the session online.

Exellent teacher and friend, he helps me understand things that I may not have known before, and even if I did understand he explains it in depth. Very nice person, you can make friends with him easily.

The best gym buddy I've got. Yes! he's not only an instructor to me,but now has become a gym buddy. He understood my needs and helped me lose weight andbecome toned and fit. So if you want to become fit, he's the guy to go to.

Seattle, WA

I grew up playing club tennis, played 4 years of varsity tennis in high school, was offered college scholarships to play in college, and was an tennis pro at a Swim and Tennis Club in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I understand body mechanics and have experience as an educator. These two attributes, as well as numerous friends who I've helped, make me believe that I can help anyone raise their game to the next level.

I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student.

I have been playing tennis since I was 7 years old. I have a deep love and understanding for the game. I came to the United States in 2007 on a full athletic scholarship and have played Division I college tennis between 2007 and 2010 at Coppin State University. I have also coached tennis at a summer camp in Pennsylvania in 2009. I love working with students of all ages and skill levels. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. I look forward to meeting you on the court!

Viktor is an amazing instructor. He has worked with me for the past three years, helping me improve my game and stay fit. He's super knowledgeable about the game and equipment.

Now that I have moved away, I hope to find an instructor with the same skill and patience, but I know it will be hard to find!!!
