I absolutely love Kelly's teaching style. She explains things clearly and allows me to do all the steps myself, while overseeing and giving me tips. She also lets me choose my projects so I'm motivated to work on each project. She is also very accommodating with my schedule and kiddos who are sometimes in the vicinity.

I had my first session today, and it was super fun. It was very comfortable, and I was able to work easily.

I wish I could give Andrea more than 5 stars! I started singing lessons with her two months ago (and as a complete novice) and her skill, patience and expert instruction has helped me to make tremendous improvements. Aside from being a wonderful teacher, she is also a wonderful human being. I am so grateful that I am working with Andrea and hope to continue with her far into the future. I highly endorse her as a teacher--for singing or for any of her other subject areas.

"I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve."
