About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

Corrine offers a wellspring of experience and passion to her lessons. I was very comfortable learning with her. Her professionalism is always on point. Corrine is well known within the flow community as being a talented, experienced professional. She is one of the best plain and simple. Working with Corrine is humbling and inspiring at the same time. Thank you for your commitment to excellence.

I have had the pleasure of learning poi tricks, fire eating as well as fire breathing from Corrine within the last year. She has a wide range of prop knowledge which was extremely beneficial for me, being a hula hooper she was able to explain a poi trick using hula hoop terminology. One of my favorite things Corrine does is teach the importance of fire safety, before learning any new prop she will go over the DOs & DONTs, Corrine has a very strong passion for that. Each lesson I walk away with new crowd pleasing tricks under my sleeve! Corrine is very patient & has the ability to simplify a trick & break it down so that any mind at any pace can learn. I have been a flow artist for 7 years now & have gone to many flow classes that fail in comparison, I would highly recommend Corrine to anyone!!

Adler is patient with me while also trying to push me forwards in the same moment, great to talk to about the lessons or even just normal things, sometimes it starts to seem more like I'm just getting some pointers from a friend instead of learning from a teacher. He knows what he is doing and knows that I can only do so much at times, he guides me through the lesson instead of just teaching it like most teachers I know of. Starting off he was able answer my repetitive questions about something that he might do without thinking, and will describe what he wants of me while teaching, not always serious or just going off on his own, expecting others to know exactly what he is doing. A great teacher and more like a friend than teacher at times.

Adler is a teacher who I'm fortunate enough to also call a friend. He is very passionate about art, is a very positive influence, and fun to be around. He doesnt sugar coat his critiques on your work but isnt harsh about it either. He gives many good pointers and advice, knowing how guide students to better foundations and improvement.

I loved learning creative writing from Jacob! He was a really fun teacher, but was also serious about helping me learn. He was always prepared, and really seemed to care about my thoughts.

What I loved most was how it never felt like he was talking AT me, but instead, he was talking with me.

I can't recommend Jacob enough!

Jacob is an adept teacher. In poetry where everything is up to the reader's interpretation, Jacob remained unbiased and gave me great advice, drawing from his vast personal experience. He never tells me what to write, just gives suggestions on what he thinks could be changed.

I've been sending my poetry to Jacob for a long time. He's a very deep and generous reader and always asks a lot of questions before offering suggestions, to make sure that he understands completely what I am trying to accomplish. When he gives me critiques, he has an amazing knack at separating the meat from the bone, tightening my lines, and modifying my structure to best suit my vision for the work.

About James
I am best known for putting a lot of life and exactness into the eyes on my canvas; humans and pets. I have been painting for over 40 years. During this time I have continued my education by taking classes from other Artists and schools. I have used pastels, oil paints, charcoal, pencil, clay, mixed media, watercolor and acrylic. I prefer Acrylic for its control, exact pigment and drying time. Which affects over all project time. My specialties are faces, animals and abstract. All of which have been commissioned for me to paint or was a result of my donation of a custom painting to local charities.

About Corean
I've been performing for about six years. I began as an aerialist but really found my joy in ground based performances, particularly hula hooping.

I choreograph my own work and am frequently hired to perform my pieces. I've worked for a few circus theatre productions & cabaret shows. Mostly I perform in the event entertainment industry for events like Media Launches for Six Flags Rollercoasters, NCAA Basketball half time shows, product launches for companies including M.A.C cosmetics and more. When I'm not performing it is not unusual to find me hoop dancing or juggling at a park for fun.

My teaching approach is fun and I will help you discover new ways for self expression. There is equal emphasis on skill development as well as developing strength, flexibility, and body awareness. I can help gymnasts develop hoop skills to inc
orporate with their gymnastics, I can help new flow artists refine their flow in time for the next music festival, I can teach hoop fitness for those approaching hooping with fitness goals in mind, or I can help aspiring performers refine their technique.
