Since this is a dying art, it has been awhile since I've been commercially active, but I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I'd be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!

Ms. Marsha is such a great teacher. My son who is 11 years old is learning a lot in such a short period of time. She makes it easy for him to understand how to read notes and how to play them in such a fun way. We were just going to try 8 sessions, but after just 2 sessions, we would like to continue for more. We just love her! I'm glad she had an opening when we were looking for a teacher.

I was very happy that he pretty well pin pointed my problem with my voice and I was happy with the practice assigned.

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

We appreciate the work you've done with Jacob. He is practicing on his own which must mean he enjoys it. Jacob has one more week of drivers ed 10/3 and then we should be able to go back to 4:30. Thanks! Angie Collier

I've been teaching Calligraphy for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start writing basic letters and as time goes on you'll be able to feel more comfortable with calligraphy, . I use specialized books and my experience; I have a plans for each level of my calligraphy lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have been practicing Calligraphy in a lot of western styles and Eastern from Copperplate to Blackletter to all sorts of Arabic Diwany, Naskh, Riq3a and A lot of Chinese and Japanese Brush styles. I can teach you the rules and provide you with ways to practice the letters. I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun :)

I recommended Moatez for a beginner graphic designer. He is so patient and flexible with time and whatever you want to focus on more. He can provide you with a lot information that you need it from the first lesson. Good luck

Hello!
Writing is a beautiful art, and I'd love to share what I've learned over the years.
Schooled in rigorous old fashioned French village, calligraphy was a major subject, hours and hours of handwriting practice. It's all about finding your position and your flow. And then make it into an art project!
I also learned Arabic calligraphy just for the art initially. It's so much fun and very relaxing. I'd be delighted to guide you in the art of Calligraphy!

I am very pleased with my online lessons with Lisa. She is fluent in both French and English. Her depth of language understanding and her skill in teaching come through clearly in all sessions.. Lisa is comfortable to work with. She stays on task with the basics, which I asked for, and she is also able to move in directions which I suggest based on my current interests. Beyond all this, I sense that she is a very good person who is "present" during the sessions.l Highly recommended.
