I highly recommend Andrea Trank’s cooking lessons. Andrea helped me customize a plan for our lesson and sent me personalized instructions for what to buy and how to best prepare for the session. The session was easy to follow, and I learned a lot. Afterwards, Andrea sent me a video of our session and recipes we had made. She was a pleasure to work with. It was a great experience and I’ll be back!

Great cooking instructor! Very passionate about healthy cooking and really good with step by step directions. Answered all of my questions while also giving quick on the fly options if something didn't come together just right. All the food was easy to make and very very good. I would recommend her to any who is looking for healthy options that are super versatile.
Maria H.
Andrea is wonderful! She made cooking easy and fun. I'm not great with using healthy ingredients, but Andrea made it a piece of cake (actually a piece of delicious banana bread!). The meals are so tasty and my confidence in eating better makes me excited to make the next meal. I highly recommend working with Andrea!

Arlo
Gabbi has been great with my 8-year-old, really good at keeping him engaged and excited about learning.
Georgina
I made the switch from in-studio to online piano lessons with Gabbi and couldn’t be more impressed with how seamless the transition has been. She has been helping me learn the fundamentals of technique and theory and is very good at creating a challenging yet supportive learning environment. She’s also good at helping me to choose pieces to learn that are within my abilities but still enjoyable to play. My playing has improved a ton in just a few lessons thanks to her guidance. Highly recommend!

History is the story about our parents, grandparents, grand-grandparents, and so on. Is about how did they live, how did they die and what did they accomplish.

History is about where they built their houses, how did they get along with their neighbors, the mistakes they made and how they fixed it, and all other little things that make a life.

Larianne is a Great teacher and has a lot of patience.
I’ve been trying to learn how to crochet on my own and I wasn’t getting no where, so I got in contact with Larianne and she meet me at Barnes and Nobles for a crochet class. She showed me different crochet patterns and different crochet hooks. She showed me how to crochet. Thanks to her I can make different crochet items.
Larianne was very helpful and I can’t wait to see her again to see what else she can teach me.
Agnes
Larianne is a fantastic teacher. She started teaching me back in 2017, and because of her, I have my Etsy job. I make baby blankets, infinity scarfs and kids Hood Hats. My client loves the result. I had the chance to participate in many of her craft shows, and the experience was terrific. Her passion for crochet became an inspiration to me. Now I love to crochet and do many things for my daughter and me. Right now, I am working on a full-size blanket, and Larianne is helping me getting the pattern right. I wish I can show pictures. Thank you very much, Larianne.
Elise
I have purchased several crocheted items from Larianne for my family and fell in love with her vlog snippets on Instagram so when she mentioned that she’d be offering lessons, I didn’t hesitate to sign up! As a teacher, she has been incredibly patient and very supportive. In just a few lessons I was able to start a scarf for my sister’s baby girl. Thank you so much Larianne for sharing your gift with us. I’ve told all my friends that they need to sign up! :)

There is a big difference between singing for a live event and singing for recordings. I focus specifically on the 10 attributes that will help you have the most success in the studio. This is a great addition to other, more formal, voice training programs, as it does not consist of traditional techniques. Rather, the focus is specifically on delivering the most effective and sonically captivating moments behind the mic. As a music producer and singer, I understand both sides of the recording process and will help you level up your voice!

About Nate

I am a professional music producer, singer and songwriter based in Nashville, TN. I have been producing music professionally since 2013 and have been fortunate to work with many major and independent artists and songwriters over the years. Most notably I have worked on projects with: For King & Co

"I am so happy that I found Mya! I had a very enjoyable lesson with Mya at her home. Mya is a very good teacher, with sensitivity to the particular needs of the student. Mya taught me pattern-making. She did so in a way that allowed me to first observe, then practice what I had observed. I came away with a usable pattern to make an item no longer available in stores.

Whether you are new to sewing or need help in developing new skills, you will find Mya able to meet you at your sewing level and you will end the lesson with enthusiasm for sewing and looking forward to your next lesson!!"

"I had a wonderful time in my first lesson. Erin was extremely knowledgeable and also very friendly. She was able to turn her camera around so that I could see what she was doing really clearly, and she explained things in a way that was easy for me to understand. She was very patient with me, as I'm a slow knitter, and was able to tell when I made mistakes and helped me correct them. I would absolutely recommend Erin to anyone looking to get started, wanting to learn more complicated projects, and/or needing help with specific questions."

Patternmaking for most beginners seems mysterious and intimidating. It is a subject a lot of sewists try to avoid.

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
