My substantial areas of expertise are women and men patternmaking, draping, garment construction (sewing), tailoring, technical drawing, concepts sketching, from basic to advance skill set. I am also a big fan of incorporating recycled / repurposing materials such as leather, suede into garments.I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps students to realize their full potential.

About Hasaan
I have obtained a degree in Menswear Design and Marketing from Fashion Institute of Technology and a degree in Applied Science Visual Communications from Katharine Gibbs School. I’ve taught garment construction, sketching and CAD design classes (Adobe Suite) for five years and have over 17 years of experience in the fashion industry. I have taught these skills to adolescents and adults in various programs including: Day and evening classes in afterschool s, summer programs
As a teacher, my main goal is to motivate students to do their best and extend their own personal limits. I devise programs, according to syllabus requirements, that expand on previous knowledge and encourage students to explore new and interesting possibilities. I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps student
s to realize their full potential. I have had some excellent results with students who have a history of poor performance.

I had a tight time schedule to finish a summer project before I went in for surgery and Hasaan was very sensitive to that. He was able to teach me new skills in pattern making and cutting that made the process easier/ more accurate as well as sewing techniques. I would say my experience with him was very positive and he was always cheerful and and in a great mood and helped me out a lot with my project. I would definitely recommend using him for lessons.

Hasaan Roselle has taught and directed our summer camp program, Camp Fashion Design for four years now. His passion for fashion is clearly evident as he steps our campers through the basics of sketching and fashion construction. Girls are intrigued and motivated as he shares with them his knowledge of fashion and his many years of experience in the industry. Moreover, his easy going personality and his attention to every detail make him a wonderful choice for a fashion design instructor. We have found him to be patient, caring and considerate with our students as they learn the intricate ins and outs of this sometimes overwhelming industry. Not only is he encouraging, he also allows students to step 'outside of the box' and to explore new ideas instead of always following the conventional path. We like that a lot. This is how the next generation of new, young designers is created! We highly recommend his services and we look forward to him joining us once again next summer at Camp Fashion Design!

Although I took only one lesson with Jessica, she gave me a terrific foundation that is now allowing me to then go forward and learn more on my own. I will likely schedule additional lesson with her once I get stuck and need more personalized help. Lessons with her are a great way to get introduced to or brush up on Photoshop. Yay, Jessica!

I had some very specific questions and design concerns that Jessica was able to answer clearly and in a manner that allowed note-taking and testing on my part, which is of course the point of on-line learning. She's a very thoughtful and thorough instructor and I will be taking more classes with her going forward.

I had a great first lesson today! Jessica was very thorough but also made it easy to understand for someone with no experience. Her teaching style is down to earth with very open dialogue - she not only went through the basics but touched base and made sure to cover aspects and relate to things in which i set as my goals. I am looking forward to the rest of my classes with Jessica!

If you would like to learn more about photo manipulation, restoration and digital scrapbooking.... I'd be happy to teach you!

About Lisa
After graduating from college with a degree in education I was determined to change the course of the education for my own family. I was the first on either side of my entire family (all generations) ever to go to a university and graduate. I came from very humble hard working (yes bullheaded Irish) people. As a naturally highly creative person the school system was not a nurturing place at all for me. As a deeply right brained visual person the left brained system was toxic for my creativity and I struggled to thrive and be myself.

For the past 21 years I've dedicated my time, energy, creativity to home schooling my own two children and supporting them in their academic quests as well as teaching them life skills. Thankfully, I had the opportunity not to put either of them in day care one day. My focused sacrifice has been int
ense, serious, determined and planned.

The ignorant verbal flack I encountered, during these years was insane, but I didn't waver. I believe in one on one education customized for each child and knew from the start what I wanted to accomplish with both of them! I wanted them to learn how to learn with their personalities, natural strengths and talents but I had to observe and implement very different parenting and teaching techniques with both from birth.

Yes, my hard unwavering work has paid off and is continuing to pay off. Both of my children walked into their first college courses at age 14...yes, real college classes on real college campuses! Both are honor students and my first will finish his degree in English Lit/Creative Writing at UNC Asheville in Dec 2016 at age 21!

All that to say...private piano lessons are nothing more than home schooling. I bring the same customized passion I used for my own children to teach yours! Not only do I have an education degree I have a proven track record of teaching children how they uniquely need to learn whether it's visually, audio, or kinetically etc. I know how to challenge them and make them work...even the super smart lazy ones!

After each lesson I take a few moments to consult the parent(s) about the lesson and what needs to be accomplished during the students next practice week. You need to be aware of their education because they grow rapidly and there is much to accomplish before they attend college! Do some research on the benefits of learning and playing music if you are not a musician yourself. It's incredible what it will do for the development of their brain little brains!

Apparently, I'm not allowed my customary studio "meet and greet" with Takelessons. I have studio rules that must be followed and if they aren't I will not continue to teach your children. You must have a piano or keyboard for them to regularly practice on and believe me I know when they don't practice. I know what method books I like to teach from so I'll be happy to share that information with you. If you don't have any I cannot start the lessons without them. They must be purchased before hand.
There are other rules so please message me first so that we can discuss them first so that there is no confusion about the studio policies. This isn't a hobby this is serious valuable education for your child.

I don't have the time nor the energy to deal with unprofessional parents because my time and energy goes fully towards teaching amazing students.

I look forward to passionately educating you or... those you love!

Lisa

I have been a professional photographer for the past 8 years, providing portraiture, retail and commercial photography services. Adobe Photoshop is an integral part of my workflow and I spend hours a day using it to retouch my photographs as well as create graphic layouts including flyers, postcards, ads, etc.

I structure my lessons to make sure students learn the retouching skills they are hoping to master for their particular projects while providing a strong foundation in principals of using the software, including use of the plethora of tools, making sure the finished product looks natural and realistic, and of course exploring creativity.

About Scott
Although beginning my professional life in the Information Technology industry for nearly 10 years with a degree in Computer Science, for the past 8 years I have been working as a professional photographer shooting everything from Portraiture to large scale commercial projects.

Photographing people however, has always been my passion. My work has been featured in many national photography competitions, as well as being published in magazines including Lucky, InStyle and Westchester Magazine.

I also facilitate and teach photography workshops on a variety of topics for beginners all the way through advanced artists. My photo studio also provides mentoring services to up and coming photographers to help focus their artistic vision and keep their technical skills razor sharp.

I'm also available for computer tutoring as well to improv
e your technology skills and get you comfortable with the latest hardware and software applications.

We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.

About Etana
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 11 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas
sion of Design with you.

I will adapt to the skill level of the student, answer all the questions, and provide practice assignments. The student has the option of choosing the topic or technique. Students can show an example of an effect they would like to learn and I will teach the process step by step.

About Ana
I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school. Recently I've been receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, who would like to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer. If you would like to learn how to create literally anything your imagination leads you to, or just use techniques to obtain an effect you have seen somewhere, you came to the right place. Whether you would like to learn the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, I can customize the lessons to your specific needs.
On the other hand, if you are just getting started and those You Tube videos are too fast or too advanced for you, we can go through the basic at your own pace,
until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own.
The sky is the limit.

Note: in order to book classes for advanced techniques, students must have the necessary basic and intermediate proficiency levels.
If you are not sure what your level of proficiency is, please check with me and we can figure it out together.

Update: Now also offering Photography lessons.
If you are a beginner, you will benefit from unique customized resources, which you can consult and use on your own time.

I have been using Photoshop for years, through my extensive studies of Photography, and also freelance graphic design in the form of visual media/show flyers/advertisements/etc. Since lesson structure for this subject is centered around each student's individual needs, I can't give a detailed description of what our studies will be like until I know more about you! Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

About Rush
I'm hoping to get to work with students who want to dive right into mastering their camera and all it has to offer, whether we're shooting on film or digital, both of which I can offer instruction in. Learning to be in absolute control of your camera and how your settings will affect your photos is key to creating your images & making sure they come out exactly the way you envision them. Our time together will be a full immersion into light-writing. Over the years, I have had approximately 4 years of cumulative formal instruction on the subject, and have been freelancing since 2011, for events such as weddings, anniversaries, baby/bridal showers, graduation and engagement photos, live concerts, and just about anything else you can think of. Previously a Photography student of Daytona State College in Florida, I made the move up to Chicago
in 2015, and am currently studying at Harold Washington College. In the spring I will graduate with my Art Studio AFA. I genuinely look forward to any time spent with someone with a desire to hone their craft, and hope to bring more inspiration to those wanting to bring forth their vision. Aside from photography, I also teach a handful of other subjects that you or someone else may be interested in!

guitarist in a local Chicago band LOOMS. a year ago we asked Rush to design a flier for some of our upcoming shows. we were so in love with what he made for us, that I ended up reaching out on my own to ask for photoshop tips. we did one "formal" lesson (this was before he was registered on the website) and man we covered a lot in 45 mins. i was surprised when rush told me he is still in school. you would have no idea from the way he conducts his lessons.

As a seasoned takelessons teacher myself, I was enthralled with Rush's professionalism and deep understanding of photography.
Many of my own students are adults who now finally have the time to learn something they've always wanted to do. So, I decided to follow my little long-term dream of learning more about photography, and boy am I glad I did! Rush is kind and patient, and has a knack for lesson personalization. I can't wait for our next lesson!!

I will work with you to make your dreams come to life in Photoshop, by learning photo manipulation and photo composite techniques.

Beginners will cover the tools and interface during the first lesson with resources given at the end of that lesson to get up to speed. We will also create our first finished piece usually within the first hour of working together.

Intermediate and advanced Photoshop users will usually have all the knowledge to move right into composition, so we will do a quick assessment and then move right into workflows, resources and creation.

I recommend a drawing tablet like the Wacom Intous or a Cintiq - although there are many acceptable brands. Also, I will recommend a plugin set (which is optional) which I find instrumental in finishing layer groupings or the final project. The plugin will speed up the process, but we don't need it.

This course is great for people trying to increase their skills on the job, become a freelancer or just for fun.

About Kevin
Hi All! My name is Kevin and I live in beautiful San Diego, California. (Although I’m a Midwest native). With my 25 years of Photoshop experience, I am well beyond proficient, and now, I’m into creating photo manipulation with the goal of making fanciful, fun, beautiful, composite art.

I started my journey into composite work about 5 years ago, after seeing some other artists’ work online. I was drawn to the general aesthetic of the surreal landscapes and characters. I love that the only limit is one’s imagination.
After wading through a myriad of different tutorials and speed paintings over the past few years, I was able to master the different tools that allow me to create the kind of art that you see in my profile. If you would like to learn how to create these types of images, I would love to share what I’ve learned with
you and help you achieve your creative ambitions.

Essentially, I am here to offer you a direct approach- no need to wade through fragmented videos or look in different places for help with different skills; I am your one-stop-shop. Simply contact me, and depending on your skill level with Photoshop, we can create an outline of lessons that will work for you. I will also share resources I have used over the years and offer my tips and shortcuts, so you can expand your skill base and increase your skill level, fast.

I hope we get a chance to work together!

Kevin’s photoshop skills are only rivaled by his unusual imagination. His mind lives outside the box and his solutions to any challenge—whether it be a photomanipulation, textures, brush uses or any other art/design problem—blew my mind. Watching him teach and explain things to myself as well as to young artists/designers was not only fun but very easy to follow and understand. I can not recommend Kevin enough.

Kevin is the perfect TECH teacher: patient, creative, and invested in your success. Photoshop can be intimidating. So can trying to learn it from an expert. Kevin breaks it down for you so your choices become intuitive. I never felt he was talking down to me. Kevin only ever encouraged. He provided a great balance of tech know-how and creative inspiration. He has given me the confidence to express myself!
