About Kelly

First Opera instructor to Laura Bretan, America's Got Talent 2016 GOLDEN Buzzer winner and youngest Opera Star. I feel there is a great deal of talent in the youth of today, and that it is my job to provide a knowledge and understanding of how to best use that talent. I try my best to provide

Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)
Junie
My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

Hello,
I am a certified swimming instructor, I teach from Pre-school level to adults! I have completed the Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certification through American red cross.
I can teach a variety of levels from basic survival basics (intro to floating-
front and back, calling for help and rolling over to kick to the wall) or to be on a swim team (backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and butterfly).
I was on the Coral Springs swim team for many years, and I also went to nationals for synchronized swimming! It is my favorite sport and I love taking my students onto new levels!

About Virginia

Hi Guys!! I love to teach and I would love to guide you on your English, Spanish and swimming lessons! A little about me.. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in Finance, and I am now completing a Masters at Nova Southeastern University in Criminal Justice. English is my first langua

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

To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines. American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Ce

Ron's teaching style is remarkable. I find he has, not only the skill, but the patience to work with people (like me) who are completely lost at times. He's laid a good foundation for me and we're working on putting up a few wall frames. He has been a great encourager and I look forward to years of improvement with him.
Bill
Amazing instructor.
Jenny
I can highly recommend Ron Pfeiffer as an excellent Tai Chi Chuan and Medical Qi Gong instructor.
His passion for Martial Arts is immense and comes through in his method of teaching.
I have been taking online private lessons with Ron for nearly a year now and my own practice has improved immensely and is now completely different to when i first started. Now i feel i am practicing a Martial Art exercise rather than than just movement.
Ron has not only helped with my practice but also has helped me enormously with confidence and self belief.
If you are thinking of taking lessons with Ron, Stop thinking and just do it. It will be the best decision for you.

"Baruk is a real wise and insightful instructor, he takes his time to understand the student and according to their entry level he customizes his training. I have never had any boxing training and I am only 2 months in and I can already see the progress, he shows tough love but that gets you results. His location is amazing as well you have a beautiful lake as a backdrop so the training feels raw and tribal. He also takes his time at the end with some great breath work and meditation practice. Over all I feel like he's a great teacher, and I look forward to seeing what my full potential is through his training, thanks Baruk!"

I am starting to learn Tai Chi as a total beginner, and I was hesitant about online lessons at first. But, luckily, you can really tell that Ron has a lot of experience teaching and is able to tailor the lessons to your level and pace.
