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.

About Tony
Hi, I'm Tony. I LOVE bowling. Every aspect of it. Competition, fun, meeting people, and making people better. You know the old saying, "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" Well, it kind of applies to me. I'm a natural right hander that has to bowl left handed due to injury.

Bowling is a great sport that is even more fun once you can keep the ball out of the gutter, and even more fun as you get better. I'd love to share the journey with you. I typically coach out of La Habra, but can travel within a reasonable distance. Even not so reasonable (for a small fee). I do coach kids (USBC background check complete. Here is my bowling bio from the CSULB website:

Tony, was a touring member of the PBA for 5 years, competing in tournaments ranging from Regional tournaments in the West, to majors such as the US Open and the M
asters. Among his bowling achievements are 8-300 games and 4-800 series, with his high being 820. Also, a Sanctioned high average of 228. While he did not win a pro tournament, he consistently cashed there, as well as tournaments such as the High Rollers, Mini Eliminator, USBC Nationals, California State Championships, and local association tournaments. Highlights include a 9th place finish in the California State Masters in 2005, 2nd place California State Doubles (1989) and winning titles in the Citrus Belt (one of the largest association tournaments in California) in 1990 (team event), and 2005 (team, doubles, all events). Tony has won too many smaller tournaments to properly list here. Although a wrist injury ended his pro career, he continues to be active in local tournament clubs and charity tournaments.
Tony has been a coach since 1994 working with both youth and adults. He gained his US Junior Olympic coaching certifications in 1996, before obtaining his USBC Bronze certification in 1998 He will earn his USBC Silver certification in June of 2015. Tony is also a member of the USBC Registered Volunteer Program, consisting of passing an extensive background check in order to work with youth. He is also a former director of the Orange County Bowling Association.

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."

Anil is incredibly skilled with a deep knowledge on Kalaripayattu. I've studied with him for over 10 years and have always deeply enjoyed classes with him. He's careful to convey the form of the art and to make sure that students are working safely and in a way that is healthy for their bodies and expertise levels.

Anil is an incredible teacher-he teaches with a passion, dedication and patience that is rare. He understands the body and mind in a wholistic way that is critical to the way he teaches students to gain mastery over their bodies and minds through the practise of martial arts. Though teaching far away from his native land of Kerala in South India, he teaches in the spirit of the long tradition that he has inherited from his own teachers while making it accessible to contemporary learners. Watching him perform is watching an unbelievable coupling of power and grace come together. Learning from him is a transformative experience.

Since having attended California State University Northridge, I can say that the skills I learned - and will continue learn - will help out my students to the best of my ability. I have experience in different fields of technology (creative computer software), extracurricular (longboarding), as well as a great and wide understanding in multiple fields of mathematics (Physics, Trigonometry, Geometry, and Calculus). Teaching will be a process both insightful and beneficial to both parties I can guarantee.
