James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

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.

MMTB's day-long intensives with Elena are astounding. DO NOT go in with a closed mind, or thinking you know things - if you do, you will walk away bitter and confused, because Elena will challenge everything you know - BUT you will walk away with a completely new perspective if you allow yourself to learn. The days are intense (as expected), so be prepared to abandon everything you knew on the fly - and be prepared to have your mind blown, and explore aspects of your art you've never explored before.

About Thomecia
Hello! My name is Thomecia, you may call me Mimi :)
I've been teaching at my Alma Mater, Fisk University since I stepped foot on campus in 2010. I taught routines for the cheer squad and hip hop dance team. I also choreographed for numerous students on campus. Before college I obtained 15+ years of experience in many styles of dancing as well as cheerleading. I reside in the Bay Area, and have since advanced my choreography through training, performing with a dance company, artist development, teaching local classes, and more! I love working with children! I also love a great challenge, so if you feel like you have two left feet, I could change your world! Always remember, you are the artist and your body is the paint brush... Just move!

Dance Lessons with me are designed to be a fun, inviting, and educational learning experience. Each lesson is a time of positive enrichment, growth, and unlimited opportunities. Growing up, I always enjoyed going to dance classes as they were an escape route from my daily duties or simply just relieving my mind from math homework for a few hours. Now, as an instructor I strive to meet each students needs by teaching in a style that best suits them. My goal as a teacher is to help my students become the best dancer they can be while also helping them be the best person they can be by teaching them time management skills, discipline, and the importance of the arts.

While completing her undergraduate degree for the past four years Carnes also focused heavy on choreography and dance for film. Carnes has choreographed five works while attending UA, with three of them being chosen for festivals and other performance opportunities.

Furthermore, Carnes directed and choreographed two films, Beauty and A Chance in Time. Both films were selected for The University of South Florida’s Dance Shorts Film Festival (’15 & ’16), and A Chance in Time was showcased in the Dance Alabama Film Festival (’17).
August 2016, Carnes returned from her first International performance of Col/apse, at the International Collegiate Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. In fall ’15, Carnes was selected as an Undergraduate Creative Research Activity Scholar where she received a grant to pursue her dream as an artist at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Katie Rose did a fantastic job during our private! She made sure we went through all the combos and took the time to show me where I was going wrong or what I was doing really well. She loves dance and it shows through her teaching methods and the passion she shows while dancing; would definitely take lessons from her again!

Katie Rose was punctual and did not waste time in starting the lesson. I liked her technique instruction and her ability to demonstrate as well. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Katie Rose to improve technique, or if you need choreography for a solo or group!

My approach to Bellydance is all about body awareness. I work with students on understanding body mechanics in order to eventually be able to layer increasingly complex, grounded and fluid movements. Wether your goal is professional dance or simply to enjoy a new hobby, classes are tailored to your needs!

Private classes are 30 mins-2 hours. The first half of class focuses exercises to help pinpoint the right muscles. The second half is on our feet performing drills and dancing!

About Devon
Hi there, I’m a Bellydance teacher and performer based in Los Angeles!

I began belly dancing at the age of twelve with Tracy Windisch at the School of Performing Arts and Cultural Education in Ukiah California. At age 14 I joined her company Troupe Sattya who performed in festivals, private parties, and shows in Northern California including Health and Harmony, Sol Fest, and Tribal Fest.

Since my teacher came from the Suhaila Salimpour studio, I am a third generation student of her style which is a fusion of Cabaret and tribal belly dance. This school of technique teaches the methodical discovery of specific muscles as a foundation in order to isolate and layer movements in a precise and healthy manner. I also have training in modern, ballet and jazz technique.
