Jessie R.

Organization logo

I have been teaching since I was a high school senior, when I started working as a teaching assistant in an elementary school music class. Since then I have taught private piano lessons and oboe lessons, group music classes (music theory, aural and sight-singing skills, music composition, music history and appreciation), self-defense classes (adrenaline-state training), and have tutored students in English, writing, essay-writing, humanities, reading, psychology, and test prep. I love teaching and I love learning from my students even more. I am a well-rounded person with many interests and believe this is part of what makes me a good teacher. I want all of my students to learn in the most holistic way possible while I'm working with them. I am also a patient and empathetic person and instructor.

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
