Spanish 55 is great! Once I responded to their request to speak with me on thumbtack I noticed they were much more professional than the others on here that had contacted me. They clearly have the user's needs at hand. They do a quick review of what your looking to learn in Spanish and set up a program to tailor to your needs. I have been using them for about 3 weeks and love it. The whole team from owners all the way to the scheduling staff are very responsive and open for suggestions on how to improve what they are doing well and if anything they can do to fix any problems in a timely manor. I would highly recommend Spanish 55 for anyone from an interest in Spanish to desiring fluency! Alberto, he is my instructor and is a great professor! Very personable and stays on track with lessons. Thanks Spanish55

I have been taking lessons with Ed Lanthier for around two years now, and in that time he has helped me greatly to grow as a guitar player. He teaches the theory, techniques, and proper form behind all of the songs either I bring in, or that he suggests based on my level and interests. Often he will dedicate portions of the lesson to ensuring that I’ve retained the knowledge from prior lessons, and to giving me exercises to include in my practice that help me to improve overall, rather than just learning to play song after song. I would definitely recommend him to anyone whether they already play and are looking to improve, or who are brand new to the instrument and have a desire to learn.

I am so glad we found Ryan for private piano lessons for my son. My son tried group lessons but never seemed to have enough instructor time and became frustrated with how it was taught. Ryan is flexible with his teaching methods as to mesh with how my son learns to play. My son enjoys and looks forward to his lessons each week. I highly recommend Ryan for private piano lessons- JO

I first had the pleasure of working with Amy on a project of original songs written by a mutual friend. She is a very gifted violinist with an impeccable ear. Years later, my now husband and I hired her to play at our wedding. She is a complete professional and I would recommend her to anyone looking for lessons or a seasoned musician.

I feel Jennifer and I have a great connection , we get along fabulously. She is a tremendously talented musician and singer (obviously ). Her abilities as a pianist and singer is equally matched by her ability to professionally yet pragmatically teach,mentor, tutor and guide one in the art of operatic singing. We have established goals. She is the epitome of promptness. I always look forward to my lessons with Jennifer. It is an honor to be her student . Sincerely - Dave

I have been taking flute lessons from Ms. Wilson for close to 4 months now and its been a great experience so far. I had very little idea of music and had no such formal training but wanted to learn flute. She is supportive from day 1 and started to teach me the basics of music and flute. She is very calm, listens to my problems when I don't get some things easily and tries to suggest solutions. She has been very flexible in class timings and adjusts her schedule to accommodate me when I can't make it to the class on some days. I wish I get to learn a lot from her and become a good flutist.

We've have the pleasure of working with Cameron as a guitar teacher for my daughter for almost a year now. He has been a great educator for a first-time student. His dedication to musical education and patience is just what my young daughter needed. As she has learned, he has had the talent to continue to push her to next level. His passion for music has been both motivating and contagious. She always looks forward to her lessons! If you are brand new to music or want to advance your guitar playing, Cameron is an excellent teacher that I can't recommend enough.

We have had about four lessons with him and he is punctual, professional, courteous and most importantly, my daughter is really enjoying her lessons. I highly recommend this teacher.

I took both guitar and ukulele lesson from Kenny at the Ed Brown Center over a two year period, and found him a fine teacher. I learned a lot, and enjoyed my time in classes with him. He also formed us into a group to play for special occasions like July 4th. He's a good guy, loves teaching.

Very personable guy. At your first lesson, discuss your objectives. No teacher is ideal for every student, and Scott's patient encouragement will be magic for some and frustrating for others.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

What do you learn in a first aid course?

First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

  • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
  • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
  • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
  • First-, second- and third-degree burns
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Bites and stings
  • Hypothermia or frostbite
  • Shock and seizures
