My 10-year old daughter and 6-year old son took a few ukulele lessons with Nanette. Per my kids, they did not feel like she was engaging with them. They had hoped that she would make the lessons a fun experience and it was not for them. She would probably be a better fit with older kids and adults. We have decided to seek future ukulele lessons with a new teacher.

Nanette is an excellent teacher for young people and for seniors. She is very knowledgeable about the instruments she teaches. She is patient and encouraging. If you are thinking of taking lessons, I would highly recommend Nanette.

Good with kids, totally focused on safety first, but works them hard with lots of repetition to see that they are getting it, with good technique.

Jean definitely has the heart of a teacher as he explained everything in the simplest form to make it easier to understand. He answered every question with a thorough answer and made sure that I knew what I was doing before he got off the phone. I would definitely recommend him!

Self-taught software engineer with experiences in autonomous vehicles, high-frequency trading, and cybersecurity. I am also currently attending a top 10 computer science Masters program at Georgia Tech specializing in machine learning/artificial intelligence to fill in the gaps in my knowledge.

I know firsthand how difficult it is to learn programming whether you are a total newbie, or a budding intermediate, but I have overcame these challenges myself and will guide you to overcome them too. I also have 3 years of tutoring experience, which will surely come in handy!

Preparing for the GRE test was a little stressful. I did not know what topics I should focus on in the little time I had, but Bill was able to break all the content into manageable sections. We managed to cover almost all the topics and my test went really well!

Learning piano has been an amazing experience because Bill tries his best to pass his musical passion down to me. He doesn't take the boring route of learning piece by piece as many other teachers often do, but he focused strongly on musicality, style, and interpretation.

This makes practice and learning more engaging instead of becoming a mindless chore.

I have worked in analyst roles in industry for four years, and have extensively programmed in R to complete most of my technical work. On the statistical and data analysis side, I have built multiple linear regression and autoregression models to forecast prices in the petrochemical markets. On the data visualization side, I have created heat maps, correlograms, choropleths (geographical heat maps) and word clouds.
