I started sewing when I was in middle school and still have a few of my first projects. I enjoy teaching new skills to everyone and love when my students "figure it out."

As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...

Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.

I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

Kelvin was an incredible teacher! He somehow made the very technical art of origami a bit easier to digest and do on our own from home. He was supportive and cheering us on, and his passion for origami was extremely evident. We can't wait to work with him again. Thanks, Kelvin!

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.

Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

I Just want to thank Daria one more time to take ample time to offer me a tarot reading. As most of us know that, the answer that we seek, we already have the innate ability to get it, for part of us already knows the right answer.
I am grateful to Daria because she talked with me throughout the whole process with such great care and got me to the root of my situation.

It was a positive vibrant and productive session.
I wish her a very happy and healthy spiritual journey! 🙏
Barbora S.
Daria read tarot cards for me the other day as I've asked her a question whether me applying in a new career field was a good idea? I've finished college in 2018 and couldn't find employment for over a year, then I finished a qualification course for teacher assistants and soon after I was given my first stable employment (been freelancing before). Full of optimism but with a grain of doubt I asked the stars/cards/higher power whether me choosing this career was a good move. Daria was able to confirm my own observations plus she added wise words of her own.

The reading doesn't give you a clear yes/no answer but if you've done a fair bit of introspection beforehand, the cards' advice may calm you down or offer you a new perspective you haven't considered before.
Kate K.
Daria gave me an online tarot reading about a month ago, and I came away with an experience that was enlightening and empowering. What I found unique about her approach as a psychic is that she combined her skilled intuition with practical advice that I could actually use to improve my life and find a measure of calm. She begins her sessions either with a specific question her client has in mind (whether it's related to relationships, family, career, aspirations, spiritual life, etc.), and if you do not come to her with a specific question, she is more than willing to do a general reading for you. (In my case, I sought advice related to my anxiety issues and their impact on my relationship with my fiancé, and over the past several weeks, things have really improved! So thank you!) If you are looking for someone who can help you see your circumstances more clearly and put you in touch with a spiritual sensibility, then Daria is someone to go see. She is not one of those charlatan psychics who will charge you excessively and then cloud your mind with bizarre, hazy predictions. She's an open-minded person and a great listener, and she's there to give you the tools to find joy and meaning.

"My friend and I were just playing a game of 8 ball and Dan suggested a game call loop . We were impressed at how much we learned about the tangent line and how we had to focus at where the ball had to go in order to stay at the table. Dan really improved my game with just 3 hours of lesson today. He also showed us 2 other games and both required us to play differently and it made us focus on cue ball control. I was smiling each time as if I discovered fire. Dan would walk us through why and how. I had a great time If i have time to play again i would call dan no doubt."

5 Questions Every Jewelry Designer Should Have An Answer For

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F...
