My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Carly since May 2013, after taking a year-long break with another teacher. A happy parent referred us to Carly and I convinced my daughter to give piano another try, before giving it up altogether. I can honestly say that Carly brought the joy of learning and playing piano back to my daughter. My daughter can be very shy and Carly took the time to get to know her and they have formed a great teacher-student relationship. Carly motivates her with fun music, encouraging words and makes her eager to learn, rather than look at piano practice as a chore. I am very impressed with how far my daughter has come, in a short time, with her piano playing. I have gotten to see Carly play piano (and sing!) and she is an extremely talented young woman, that any child (or adult) would be lucky to learn from. She has always provided us with good communication, shown flexibility when needed and I highly recommend her to other parents.

Justin does a wonderful job of instilling a general love of and appreciation for music inn our 10 year old girl. We hired him to teach guitar, but he also uses singing and our piano in the lessons. We all really like his holistic approach. Justin is laid back and very easy to get along with, as well as trustworthy. We highly recommend him!

I met Dan in the late Fall of 2014. To make a very long story short, I almost canceled my first appointment because of a previous bad experience. I'm so glad I didn't. Right from the start, I knew we were a good fit. Dan is a very nurturing, supportive, and caring teacher. He always managed to find alternative ways to get you where you need to be. From hitting that high note you thought it was impossible, to get you to face your fear and taking chances. The lessons never feel like lessons; it was more like hanging out, having fun with an old friend. My lessons went from weekly to bi-weekly, and I had recommended numerous friends and family to take lessons with him. I highly recommend Dan!

Colleen is a consummate professional and also clearly has a passion for teaching. She is extremely patient and creates an atmosphere in which students are not hesitant to try new things, specifically speak a new language (which can be quite a scary thing for an older adult learner) with no fear of embarrassment. Her knowledge of current best teaching techniques is also evident through her lesson plans, which are never boring.

Leslie tailors each lesson to what I need at that time. Her lesson visuals improve understanding of the concepts. Most importantly, she developed my vocal skills in ways that I never thought possible. I now have the confidence to present myself and "perform" in any capacity. She has an amazing client list, professional experience, and contacts. Be sure to tell her how much the Tootsie pop exercise could help you! I highly recommend her.

Maida is teaching me Spanish, and I am very satisfied with her methods. She has recommended a book that I use and she leads me through the lessons and adds to them with explanations of daily usage and pronunciation. It is just a little difficult to understand her English sometimes because of her accent, though.

As a beginner who is interested in learning many different styles, I am so pleased to have a teacher like Brandon, who is always showing me how to play something new. He also paces the lessons well and eases his students into good technique. I've certainly had teachers in the past who could be preachy about their purist ways and insist on drills for much of the lesson, but Brandon is great at picking up on what moves his students. I bet he could be a little tougher on me, but I appreciate his patience! Looking forward to keeping this going in the coming years!

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
