About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

I don't compromise on my rates as I provide an extreme amount of value for what I offer. My resources and tips alone are great ways of to make you excel at your project goal
s a lot more quickly than with anyone else. I believe in a holistic approach to tackling your projects- not just isolating one way of accomplishing it.

I am a former Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) Professor, teaching sewing and fashion art, and in the fashion industry for over 16 years. I have worked at Target Stores, Federated Dept. stores, and Alexander McQueen, and have a very close working knowledge of industry standards and needs.

-Patternmaking

You must make yourself available for one 15 minute phone consult before scheduling your first lesson- please plan to do this at least one week to 2 days before you want to schedule your first lesson. We will discuss your lesson goals, and what materials to buy. You do need to allow time to purchase your materials, so please plan ahead. When you purchase your lessons, please email me a time and date (or several) to schedule this phone call.

As a beginner, I was nervous. Super unnecessary! Milda is very patient, kind, and encouraging. I feel more confident about my sewing goals and my current progress. Looking forward to my next lesson. Only regret is not signing up ages ago.

About Timpla
Hello! You want to learn to sew? I'm Timpla and I can help you!

FEEDBACK FROM MY PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

"It was great! I learned so much about my sewing machine."

"Had a great time Timpla! I was able to hem my daughter's skirt and repair a shirt sleeve. Looking forward to next time."

"I definitely benefited from the class! Thanks so much!!!"

I LOVE helping my students conquer their "fear" of the sewing machine, which unleashes excitement about their potential to sew unique items for themselves and others.

I've been sewing since I was a young girl, learning from my grandmother.

My experience includes sewing women's and girl's apparel, home decor, and quilts. I decided to start teaching private and group lessons after receiving many requests from friends and acquaintances.

I look forward to helping you develop the
skills you need to tackle any sewing project.

~Timpla S.

I've been playing and teaching the game of bridge for the past 24 years. I love this game, and I love introducing it to others so they can share in the joy of bridge. I've taught people from age 8 to age 75 and everywhere in between. My goal is to make the lessons fun because this is a game, and the only reason to play a game is to have fun.

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

About James
I am a student at Carnegie Mellon University and have been teaching or tutoring for close to a decade now. This includes paid and volunteer private tutoring, classroom teaching, teaching assistant, and even a summer camp for elementary and middle-school students to learn computer science and programming skills. I also competed in math club during high school and was particularly successful in my senior year competing in statistics (6th place in the individual Nationals statistics event).

Whether you want to catch up with your current math course, get ahead and learn more advanced math, or aiming to ace your SAT/ACT I'd be happy to help. What I enjoy most is to have a friendly, peer relationship with students rather than being seen as just a tutor so you can expect to have fun while learning. However, what is most important to me is not l
earning how to solve problems or getting high grades but rather knowing that my students UNDERSTAND the problems and solutions without simply memorizing. And you can take that as my personal guarantee.

Some might call me a "math nerd" (to which I take absolutely no offense) but I have other interests as well. Most recently I've taken up golf but I love playing any sport with friends. I also watch nature documentaries and comedies. And of course I also love videogames (Overwatch, COD, FIFA) as well as boardgames. To some parents these might seem like useless facts but as an experienced teacher I can tell you that connecting with students on unrelated topics has an invaluable effect on the student-teacher relationship and will make for a smoother, unfiltered learning atmosphere. Not to mention it's much more exciting to refer to a sports analogy for a word problem rather than the unrelatable problems people are unfortunately used to ("person A buys x ft of fence...").

About Olivia
I began studying astrology in 2010 after moving to a remote area for a change of scenery and received my certification from The School of Evolutionary Astrology in 2013.

On a personal level, I started looking into astrology because I felt my sign didn’t hit every angle of my being. When I read about other signs growing up, I always felt a part of me identified with each of them. I began my studies with the intention of discovering for myself if astrology was “for real” and it lead me to a treasure trove of self-discovery.

A common misconception about astrology is that it will tell you your future and it’s set in stone. In medieval times, when astronomers and astrologers were one in the same, astrology was only practiced with royalty to discern the potential of an heir. Those times were fragile for humanity day to day, and had a ten
dency to view cause and effect on a fatalistic scale.
Centuries later, the understanding of Astrology and its concepts have evolved. Particularly in Evolutionary Astrology, each soul has free will, there is no sealed fate. What it does show us is the potential of each soul. The planets provide the energy to produce the opportunities for the potential, the soul gets to choose to take it and if so, how it takes it.

It is my belief that astrology provides an empowering method of self-discovery. It is a central focus in my teaching to create an encouraging and safe atmosphere that allows students to look at dynamics in their lives and not only understand the root of it, but provide practical tools that help heal and lead to solutions. With this, I maintain a comfortable pace when working with more sensitive topics and areas of experience to prevent overwhelm.

Although astrology is a metaphysical and occult subject, my approach in teaching does not stray from “the real world”, so to speak. My students aren’t left in the fog deciphering whimsical metaphors that they can’t apply to their everyday life. They gain through each lesson a more comprehensive understanding to what they can utilize as a universal language. My rule of thumb is that if you can label opposing themes, hot vs. cold or wet vs. dry, then you can l learn astrology. If you find yourself connecting symbols throughout your day, you can learn astrology.
