I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.

GAMING MUSIC FOR PIANO:

This is a special course Ms. Melissa is offering! She is teaching video game music on piano to all those gamers out there!

Ms. Melissa likes to learn video game music in her spare time, from games such as Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Skyrim, and so on.

She understands that a lot of piano students want to learn this type of music, so for a limited time she is offering to skip the introductory classes and get straight to work!

NOTE: This course does not teach the basics of piano (note reading, technique or notation) Ms. Melissa strongly suggests this course for students who already have at least some knowledge of these fundamentals.

NOTE: Can be taken IN CONJUNCTION with regular piano lessons, or on its own!

About Melissa

Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals. She is currently teaching out of her

We love our online lessons with Melissa! We just prop up the phone or iPad on a chair and Melissa can guide my daughter as if she was sitting right next to her!! She keeps her engaged and focused with her encouraging approach and current song choices. Voice lessons are also going great with Melissa demonstrating or singing along as needed. I spoke with A LOT of instructors and music schools and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone!

I have played a lot of on-line Texas Hold-Em. My biggest take was a 12k win. I understand the game from the basics to the more advanced techniques. I have worked for on-line sites, played many live tournaments, table play etc...
THIS IS TEXAS HOLD 'EM ONLY.
This class is directed more at the beginner and the "intermediate" player who feels stuck, unable to move to the upper echelon. This class is a stout review of the solid basics required to win more than you lose. That is, to come out ahead in the long run, instead of walking away at the wrong time, or simply playing bad hands or getting pulled into expensive pots on a draw. If you understand any of this description, this class is for you. If not, I would look elsewhere. This is not a class for advanced players. I am an advanced player and such a pairing would be an attempt at lateral instruction and that dynamic rarely works in my experience.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

"I like this instructor because he plays games on chess and he teaches step by step so that it is simple to understand where as some teachers give you a load at 1 time and he doesn't give any homework but to practice what we learned so I think that anyone who wants to learn chess on TakeLessons should take the lessons with Thomas."
