About william
I have been teaching for over 20 years in a wide variety of disciplines. I began my teaching career as a scuba instructor and have taught acting and improvisation professionally in New York City for ten years. As an actor I have been the resident teaching artist at dozens of NYC schools and helped write curriculum for the DELLTA program (developing English language learning through the arts).

Professionally I have made a living from acting (both theatre and film), stand up comedy, improvisation, freelance writing, even being a United States Marine. For the past 7 years I have been teaching children and adults with autism as an ABA therapist.

I offer a very broad range of experience not only with the disciplines I have taught but with the exceptional variety of people I have had the privilege of working with.

Will has a great way of guiding the team to not only work together but dial in what's working and phase out what's not. He's patient, encouraging, and most importantly honest. It's clear he loves the form and working with others to find what works for their team.

Will and I performed and taught together for years in NYC. He is the best! He really focuses on spontaneity and supporting his partner. When you work with him, you won’t have to worry about being funny or clever. He will help you learn to improvise in your own unique way.

Will was an outstanding member of our NYC company. His imagination, vibrancy, generosity and goofy sense of humor make him fantastic to work with. Will also taught with us in public schools, where his thoughtful feedback and unfailing support made him one of our best teachers. He has our highest recommendation.

About Barry
Hi my name is Barry and I am originally from Los Angeles, California. I grew up in a very athletic family – my father was a martial arts instructor and body builder. Even as a young child, I was very active in sports. My happy childhood and teenage years were shaped by martial arts, and I was able to achieve some regional success in Tae kwon Do, Muay Thai and Boxing.

I am a Martial Artist and instructor from North Hollywood. Muay Thai and Boxing are my passions – and is where I truly feel at home. Over the years, I have competed in a wide range of tournaments in numerous Muay Thai and Tae Kwon Do competitions.

For the past 14 years, I have been working as an independent professional trainer. I enjoy every minute of it and the freedom of being my own boss. I can already look back on many happy hours during which I was able to help m
y clients reach the goals they had set for themselves.

Through Martial Arts, I have become very knowledgeable in other areas of fitness such as Personal Training and Fitness, Cross Fit, Strength and Conditioning, Running, Cardio, Weight Loss, and Nutrition/Diet Managment.

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.

I am more than happy to teach in-home, or in-studio to anyone.

I have years of experience teaching drawing from basic line drawing, to shading, coloring, etc.. I write my own original poems. I have been working with two non- profit groups such as KIWANIS and S.I.P.A. Under KIWANIS I became more in tuned with different kinds of people.I'm also very good with the children and teens. S.I.P.A. was a program where I worked with children from ages 6-12. I might not be a parent, but I know how to keep the kids enthusiastic and
cheerful . I am willing to teach and work with anyone.

About Darren
Darren R. Wong is a member of The Kinjaz from NBC's World of Dance and has been teaching, performing and choreographing in the Hip Hop community for 13 years.

He has also been a part of world-renowned Hip Hop organizations such as Culture Shock LA and Kaba Modern and spent 4 years on the faculty of the Claire Trevor School School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine as an adjunct lecturer of Breakin'.

He has been sharing his experience and knowledge by teaching and training dancers of all skill levels, from college performing arts programs, dance studios and online students from around the world, how to break with the knowledge that he has been fortunate enough to gain.

Darren's goal is to share what dance has given him in his life by providing in person or online dance courses for up and coming dancers who may b
e intimidated or self-conscious to start dancing or do not have access to experienced teachers or a dance studio with classes that interest them around them.

His courses allow both new and experienced dancers from all over the world to have access to an experienced teacher who understands the ins and outs of how to break down movements to its simplest form, so a student can confidently learn a movement with correct technique, execute them to music and piece them together to create their own combinations whenever and wherever without having to step foot into a studio.

He aspires not only to help those in his local dance community, but also dance communities worldwide who may not have direct access to the techniques and knowledge that was shared with him.

My experience with Darren was nothting short of outstanding! He has a neverending wheelhouse of moves that he can teach you. More importantly, he can help any bboy or regular dancer with the most important aspect of dance: staying on beat 100% of the time while doing these moves! He was kind, patient, punctual, and very talented. Anyone who wants to learn dance the right way can accelerate their learning by working with Darren!

Darren was very patient and nonjudgmental. I think he is a very good instructor. I was a little unsure as to how well a dance lesson would go over the internet but he put those fears to rest. I give him five stars for his knowledge and because he made me feel comfortable.

About Tyree
My love of the game started very early in life. I played on my first organized basketball team when I was 5 years old. I played in either park leagues, for my school, or for the Reebok Slam n Jam league until I was 24 years old. My aspirations for any type of pro career (NBA or overseas) was cut short because of a knee injury suffered, oddly enough, at work, not on the court. However, my love and passion for the game never dwindled but instead grew, as I eventually got involved with one on one tutoring and coaching.
I am now 45 years old and I recently received my AA Degree in Kinesiology. I also coach girls varsity basketball in Los Angeles, CA. Last season, my first, our team had the highest victory total that they have had in over 10 years. We also had our best ever finish in league and hosted a CIF play-off game for the first time i
n school history. I know a lot about the game and teach with the love, respect and passion that I feel for the game. In short, I teach basketball because I know it and I teach it the right way. I will break down every aspect of the game into basic simple skill building drills, that can be worked on anytime. As these basic skills progress, we will reconstruct them and we will learn to incorporate these skills into our overall game. My focus will not only be on offense. I will teach proper defensive stance, rotations, hands and feet positions, and proper slide technique. The lost art of the mid range game (15 ft) will be resurrected, as well as many other basic skills that I see lacking at every level, including the NBA.
Just remember,
To truly know the game is to respect the game; to truly respect the game is to love the game; to truly love the game is to know the game.
And the only way you can do that is by learning the game the right way. No one is born spinning a basketball on his/her finger. It is through hard work and dedication that greatness is born. I will give you the skills, but the dedication and hard work must come from you.

"Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong."

Coach Burnett is an excellent coach. Not only did my son get better at basketball, but we use Coach Burnett's meditation technique for school also. As a result, my son's grades are up.
