Your Tai Chi Journey begins with an understanding of your needs. There is no mystery or mysterious movements to Tai Chi Chuan. The lessons are science-based so you will enjoy learning this wonderful art which has changed my life and I'm sure it will change yours too. Once we've set some goals we'll begin with introductory training. Experienced or maybe not so much we will work together to help you reach your goals.

About Ron

I feel we are off to a great start. Thanks!
Marina
Ron is an excellent and attentive teacher. He is very attuned to his students abilities, health constrains and inspirations. Ron knows how to make me move forward without clanging me too much and at the same time to achieve a progress. I am looking toward our lessons every week with the expectation to learn something new or refine my practice. Even though I started taking classed via zoom during the pandemic, these one on one instructions enabled me to make a tremendous progress in my practice. I hope to continue to learn from Ron a great more and to borrow from his bottomless optimism: we all need some positivity in our lives during these challenging times. Ron, many thanks for everything!
Linda
I was nervous about our first lesson, and there was no need to be! Ron was patient and kind, and went at the slow pace we wanted. And this is REAl tai chi!

Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

I have been sewing for more than 20 years and take a practical approach to learning sewing. I like to have students start with a project that is going to be achievable.

Kelly did a great job showing me how to thread a sewing machine and load a bobbin, and get started on my first project. She has excellent cameras to show you close ups of her machine and to demonstrate what she is doing.

Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes.
The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself.
I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential.
The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.

About Teresa

I am a graduate of Northern IL University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I have 22 years of teaching experience where I have traveled to the homes. Students enjoy my passion that I have with the instrument. I started teaching in 1991 and have been teaching several students since t
