I played varsity basketball at the high school level, topped by a state championship as well as being ranked as one of the top high school teams in the Nation. I also have taught/coached at many basketball camps/clinics.

About Brandon

I am currently a sophomore student at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I am a sport management major with a minor in business. I am enrolled into the prestigious Temple University Honors Program (top 6% of the university). I have passions in working in youth sport one day, hopefully starting my own non-profit company which teaches sports through educational opportunities for children.

Academically, I graduated in the top 15% of my class and received numerous scholarships to top colleges in the area. I took AP classes in various subjects as well as honors classes in high school.

Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

John R. Astoria, NY

I have played competitive basketball since childhood and I am particularly skilled in ball control as well as shooting.

About John

My name is John R. and I'm an experienced teacher/tutor.
In addition to my eight years working as a teacher at a private school here in NY, I have tutored many students in subjects ranging from math, science, social studies, reading, and writing, to arts (piano, guitar) and even athletics (I've played both basketball & soccer at a high level). I'm very familiar with common- core curriculum, but I also try to gear my teaching towards an individual's particular skills and education history. Also, while in graduate school I tutored several undergraduate students in philosophy and psychology. Finally, I spend a lot of time working with autistic individuals and its something that is very close to my heart. I adhere to the principles of ABA and am fully capable of ...

Soccer · In studio
When my son started soccer at age five, he really struggled and didn't enjoy the game the way I'd hoped. Within a few months of working with Jack (John) though, hes become one of the better players on the team and even made the local travel team. Best of all, though, he really seems to enjoy playing now and seems confident out on the field!

John truly understands the game and was able to teach all the basic skills to my son. Unfortunately, due to a recent move I was unable to continue with the lessons. I think he is a very good teacher though.
