Kelvin was a nice guy but not very good at listening. You can tell he is probably good at SEO, but is more geared towards giving multiple lessons, because he will not answer any questions if its not in the order he is teaching. Being a teacher myself, you have to LISTEN to the person paying for the lesson. You should not tell a paying customer that you wont answer a question because you will get to that at a later time in a different lesson. Some people, like myself understand many aspects of SEO already, and just need to ask some questions to learn new things to try.

Kelvin did give me a couple very good tips I will implement.

You could be a very good teacher my friend, just listen more

Kelvin is a very patient teacher! I knew absolutely nothing about mandolin or music and Kelvin has helped with that. I have a long way to go but, with Kelvins help I believe I can get there!
I highly recommend Kelvin!!!!!

Brad was an amazing instructor for myself and 10 and 11 year old daughters. His communication skills are impeccible and his approach spot on. After only one lesson, I have learned more about my camera and photography than in my whole life! We are so excited to continue our lessons with Brad!

After two one-hour lessons with Brad (a creative birthday gift from my wife), I already feel very comfortable with Adobe Lightroom (my original goal) and much more aware of how I'm composing my photographs to boot (a big bonus!). Brad has been highly sensitive to my needs/interests. I've just been tremendously impressed with how acurately he's been able to read my "rate of information absorption" via the real-time/on-line remote interface. This completely eradicates any hestitation about this method of instruction. I look forward to more lessons once I've done some experimentation. Thanks Brad for such a terrific experience!

Having never taken a watercolor lesson before, I did not know where to begin. Renata showed patience, expertise, and humor as she helped me acquire the materials I needed and explained the basic procedures. Her demonstrations and personal assistance were exceptional. I highly recommend her as an outstanding instructor.

I have had the pleasure of having an art class with Renata Sharman for the last few months. I have learned so much from her instructions and her demonstrations. She is extremely knowledgeable about art and a gifted teacher. She also teaches cooking classes and is a talented photographer. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires to improve his/her painting skills and enjoy it at the same time. Renata is delightful. A side note – Renata speaks 7 languages!

I love my drawing lesson with Charis and look forward to a lessons each week. She gives thoughtful comments that have helped me develop my drawing skills and personal creative style.

Charis is brilliant. Her marvelous sense of humor, curiosity, and expertise with language, literature and the making of beautiful things, would make learning anything with her a pure delight, as well as a privilege. As it happens, she is a masterful writer, editor and expediter of creative dreams -in a genuinely original, even magical way- every time I see her, I find I've got five new ideas and my sense of reality feels enlivened and enlarged.

Sonsoles is incredibly knowledgeable in her subjects. She is encouraging and patient, and she is always available if you have questions or art work that you would like feedback on. Classes are catered toward what you would like to learn as well as what you need to develop as an artist. For example, I signed up for acrylic painting lessons, but we began with drawing lessons because drawing is the foundation of painting. Notes are sent to you in advanced for each class, and Sonsoles goes over those notes during class and includes demonstrations. I'm so grateful that I decided to take lessons with her, and I highly recommend her. I always finish class with a more open mind and a smile.

Thanks Sunny!
