Very informative lesson. We were able to spend time just playing a round of pool and evaluating where I was at in the process. Then took up more advanced topics and also breaking bad habits. Will be scheduling more lessons soon!

Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!

Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.

Teresa is an incredibly knowledgeable and considerate teacher! We took ten Salsa lessons with her, coming in with no dancing experience and leaving feeling comfortable and confident showing off a myriad of awesome moves! We would highly recommend her!

I have been playing games my entire life. I have spent years playing competitive shooters from Halo to CS:GO to Call of Duty and more. I have even gone as far as to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design where I would receive my BFA in Interactive Development and Game Design. After graduating I started work at Epic Games where I worked on Fortnite seasons 12,13,14,15, and 16. Not only do I play games, but I have a fundamental understanding of how they work. I love sharing my passion for video games with the next generation of gamers and I hope that while you learn you have a fun time.

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week.

So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …
