About Shahadoth
I teach various courses.
I specialize in preparing individuals for the SHSAT and SAT, delivering exceptional results through the augmentation of relevant ntelligence quotients.

Multiple students of mine have been accepted into Stuyvesant High School, as well as various other prestigious schools, including Townsend Harris, Bronx Science, and Brooklyn Tech.

I open students minds to advanced logical processing and am efficient in helping students process faster in engaging manners. This has proven to be both academically as well as practically beneficial to my students.

I tutor people in manners that dramatically improves their GPA and gives them the tools, work ethic and processing capabilities to accomplish beyong 90+ GPA levels.

One of my students came to me with a below 78 GPA. After tutoring the child for 7 months, his GPA
had increased to above 98 in the second marking period of his first semester of high school. I taught him to process faster, work with discipline so as to focus better, and be determined on top of course materials. I tutor people to be more efficient academically and practically so that the result is a better person with greater capabilities. This helps people become more self sufficient and reach their full potential.

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

Let's get moving! I can teach you a number of styles or focus on one in particular that you like. My background is mainly in ballet, tap, jazz, and musical theatre dancing. No one is too young or old to learn some moves!

About Carissa
Hi! I'm Carissa, a working actor and playwright, and would love to work with you on your craft! I grew up heavily immersed in the arts from a young age. For Middle School and High School I attended one of the top Performing Arts schools in the State of California, where I was able to take classes such as ballet, tap, jazz, acting, and playwriting daily. After that, I earned a spot in, and graduated from, the BFA Acting program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. After taking a year to work professionally in theatre and television, I moved to Ireland to earn my MFA in Playwriting from The Lir Academy (an affiliate school of London's RADA). Teaching has been a big part of my life, from private study to running theatre camps for kids. I'm well versed in the drama school audition trail and would love to help you prepare fo
r this exciting time! I also offer playwriting lessons/critique, and beginner lessons in dance (ballet, jazz, tap). I look forward to hearing from you!

I have had experience in many different types of dance over the last 30 years. I love dance of any kind and love to pass that on to my students! I try very hard to make my lessons specific to the needs of each student not only in what I teach, but in how I teach them. I have had much experience working with students with physical limitations, as well as those who are very advanced. While I do focus on technique and proper performance of steps, I also enjoy getting my students to perform and enjoy dancing. After 30 years of dancing and almost 20 years of teaching I still love what I do and can't wait to share that love with you!

About Stephanie
With 30 years of dance experience and almost 20 years teaching experience, I am excited to help you learn to dance! I have done many different forms of dance from Ballet and Modern dance to Ballroom, Latin, Hustle and West Coast Swing.

After getting my BFA in Dance Pedagogy I began to branch out into the world of partner dancing. After spending some time competing in International Latin, I eventually starting competing in Hustle. I became a champion Hustle dancer, eventually being undefeated in Just Hustle competitions. During my time in Hustle I was also performing in dinner shows with a troupe of dancers and we would travel to events around the country. I was also exposed to West Coast Swing at the time, and this became my next venture.

I have reached the All-Star level in West Coast Swing and have continued to travel to eve
nts to teach, judge, and compete in both West Coast Swing and Hustle. All this time I have continued to study and teach Ballet and Modern Dance as well as Jazz, Ballroom and Latin.

I have been teaching on my own since 2008 and have had students of all levels. My students have been successful in competitions as well as being very strong social dancers. I love to teach and find that while it can be difficult to learn to dance, we can also have fun while doing it!

I was based in the Philadelphia area for almost 15 years and earlier this year have moved to the Charlotte, NC area. I teach at a couple of studios in the Lake Norman and Charlotte area as well as being able to teach online or in the comfort of your home. I look forward to sharing my love of dance with you, no matter what kind of dance you would like to learn!

Have you always wanted to dance, but are too scared to jump into a group class? Are you taking classes, but feeling like you're stuck and can't figure out HOW to make your body move the way other people can? I can help you! I teach Zumba(r) Fitness classes and have had several students approach me for help. At first I was hesitant, I am NOT a professional dancer... BUT, watching their progress was incredibly rewarding! I can teach you basic Hip Hop, Tap, Salsa, Merengue, Swing, Cha Cha, Samba, you name it, we'll do it! Let's get you moving!!

About Gina
I have been dancing my entire life, I worked as a Party Motivator(someone who encourages guests at Bar/Bat Mitzvah's and Corporate Events to get up and DANCE) through college at the University of Connecticut. After college I competed in Bronze level Ballroom Latin Dance. I was also a member of SMCC Dance Company.

Are you someone who just loves to dance, but you're not sure where to start and you aren't and have never really been a studio dancer? That was once me, I went into college with never having any sort of technical training and ended up graduating with UNLV Department of Dance's Outstanding Performer Award. So I learned my style of movement from both outside and inside the studio which will allow me to bring the best of both worlds to you as an upcoming dancer and give you versitility in movement and choreography.

I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern.

About Lucinda
I am a graduate from UNLV with a Bachelors in Fine Arts in Dance Performance & Choreography. My choreographic work has not only been premiered in four UNLV Dance Concerts, but as well as in concerts for dance companies in Las Vegas. I was also awarded UNLV Dance Department's Outstanding Performer Award. I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience, in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern. For my choreography, I draw inspiration from and truly love to mix the genres of contemporary and hip-hop, creating a blend of hard hits and smooth releases.
