'Dr. Cliff,' a part-time college/university professor, teacher and tutor with 5 master's and 3 doctoral degrees in a variety of topics: Mathematics, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Management Information Systems, MBA, Leadership, Education and Administration. He has always used proven educational techniques to instruct undergraduate students, graduate students and school children/teenagers (K-12). In addition, Dr. Cliff is a Certified Tutor by American Tutoring Association and National Tutoring Association (Math); he holds California Teaching Credentials in Math (CSET I,II,III), Busin
ess (I,II,III), and Educational Technology/Computers (I,II); he is a Sylvan Certified Teacher in Math and Arts/Language K-12.
Dr. Cliff believes that, although many professors and teachers do an admirable job in the classroom, many students and children do not learn well in traditional institutions. Many students and children don't respond to the assembly line nature of most institutions. He believes that a student's or child's strengths and natural abilities need to be the foundation of learning. Dr. Cliff often warns against a "cookie cutter" approach to educating students, teenagers and children. You or your child is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon. Therefore, individual one-on-one tutoring or help is the key approach to each student who has any challenges difficulties in a given subject.
In today’s environment and economic challenges, with shorter budgets for the education, larger classes sizes and pressure of performing well in all kind of standard tests, I often see many students lacking true knowledge and skills in a given subject, since they cannot get individualized attention during the class session. That’s where a tutor comes into the picture, not only uncover major “holes” in students’ knowledge set but also teach students how to study, how to learn and through proper guidance “fill” those knowledge and skills holes.

I love to have fun and I am passionate about sharing my art with others. I am very patient, and we will move at the student's pace no matter how long it may take to grasp a concept. Each class is catered toward the student's ability to pick up, thus the class will never be too fast or too slow.
I am looking forward to helping others find their place in the dance world, as well as introduce dance to new comers!
Dayah taught me throughout summer camp and one year in the regular dance school. Dayah always left room for us to express ourselves and become our own dancer; while she still taught us the core of modern. Throughout the year we all had our own special experience with Dayah whether it was her being our mentor (which I saw her as) or just just being a really rockin' dance teacher. The dance that she choreographed for us gave everyone there own special part and had everyone clapping and out of there seats singing along to Black and White by Michael Jackson. That dance was so impressive that we still use it today. Dayah was a truly extraordinary teacher, and I know that your experience with her will be filled with knowledge and fun.

Well Josh is a "special" guy. He really enjoys helping people reach their fitness goals. I'm a new student and didnt know what to expect but after that first day, I thought wow this guy is really into what he is doing. What I like most is he is a seasoned trainer and knows how to target certain muscles in your body. He will definitely push you beyond your limits and that's the type of trainer you should want. These next few months are going to be interesting because this guy doesnt even do the same workout twice. He switches it up every session. If you are serious about learning martial arts or getting in shape hit this guy up.

"Kathy L: I started training with Patty in my early forties for quite a few years. I looked and felt the best I ever did in my life. When my daughter went
to college I took a break because of finances. But I told Patty I would be back. Well it has been about five year and in June of this year I made the call I was thinking of making for months, asked Patty if she could fit me into her schedule. Thankfully yes. When I workout by myself I would make excuses, and my eating habits became terrible, and I gained weight. Patty got me back on track quickly. When I would make excuses she asked me when did I think I could get it together and it made me think. Patty said maybe if I got my eating under control with my workouts maybe other situations in my life would start to fall into place. Patty was right I already have started losing weight and other things in my life are falling into place. Patty is a great trainer and motivator. I am glad Patty is in my life. P.S. I travel forty minutes to see her and it's worth it !!!"
"CHUCK: Training with Patty's exercise program is great. It is really precise, and Patty keeps me right on track. With her positive attitude, she pushes me
just enough to break a sweat, but yet, I feel so incredible when I am done with my workout!"
"I love his class!"
"He is only Japanese Master in south Florida.
I am so happy that I could take his private lesson."
"You won't find a more experienced, insightful, inspirational, and personable instructor as Siful Jack! With his strength, flexibility, wisdom, enthusiasm
, sensitivity and humor, he makes things EASY."
"I got a great workout and had fun doing it. She showed me exercises I can do regularly to tone up and stretches that have really been working. She was f
riendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back."
