Success stories

Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Radmila Y.

1 Art lesson

I asked Ryan to help my son with those skills and I cannot be more happy. Dennis loved his lessons with Ryan. He told me that Ryan is the best art teacher he ever had. That his tips are helping him tremendously and fast and more helpful than any art teacher ever gave him. I withdrew my kids from the art school and now they are learning art with Ryan.
James C.

1 Art lesson

For our first lesson Shay was able to connect with our son and show him a perspective about art as related to geometric forms. I'm sure if he had a different interest she would have related that to art instead. I had friends who attended art class at FIT and Parson's in NYC and his first lesson seemed equivalent to what you would get there, only personalized. Her teaching style seems to blend how to think about art, technique, and the personality of the student.
Suzanne G.

12 Art lessons

I am a high school student with no previous art experience, I just loved art and always wished I could be good at it! I have been taking weekly art lessons with Karim for 4-5 months now and it's hard to describe how much I have learned. Since our first lesson, Karim has been so open to any project that I want to do, whether portrait drawing, watercolor, and even performance art.
