I really enjoyed our first lesson and I learned a lot. Looking forward to more lessons. She knows a lot and communicates the lesson very clearly and concisely for a beginner like myself to understand and comprehend what is going on.

I'm so glad to have found her! I was a bit apprehensive about how it would go but she made it a great learning experience. I am looking forward to all she can teach me. I would recommend her to anyone!
Sheron - Far Rockaway
At a birthday soiree over the February 29/March 2 weekend, I got the opportunity to sample Angelique's culinary skills
To say that I was wowed by her creativity and food presentation, will be putting it mildly! My taste buds were titillated beyond measure! I plan on having Angelique teach my 14 year old her cooking skills as well. Way to go Angie!

The euphonium is an amazing instrument! The nickname for the euphonium is the "tenor tuba". I am so excited to teach you more about the euphonium! I am an interactive teacher who can assist you in many ways in regards to learning how to play the euphonium including; correct posture, new breathing techniques, correct fingerings, alternative fingerings, improved sight-reading skills, greater music theory knowledge, and performance skills. I recommend using the Essential Elements for Band book series. Once we connect and I can find out more about your playing level we can find the perfect book for your. I can't wait to work with you :)

I love neuroscience and having taken a bunch of chemistry (at some point all at once) reminded me how fun challenges can be. I make sure you learn what is going on with the concepts involved in the topics. Not only do I love chemistry, I enjoy teaching it and helping others get a grip of understanding on the subject. I welcome learners who want to see good grades on their chemistry homework and strive to gain confidence on the subject. Contact me if you would very much like that.

Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.

His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.

I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.

She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me.

"Sasha is a trained teacher. You can tell she knows how to TEACH dance not just dance well. She is flexible with your learning style but will present 3 methods of learning simultaneously - visually performing your moves with you, auditorally counting out loud to you, and making you repetitively perform the moves while she monitors your technic. Or, she'll let you do what you feel most comfortable with so you have the most fun. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Dance at any level."
