About Kelly

I have been sewing for more than 20 years and take a practical approach to learning sewing. I like to have students start with a project that is going to be achievable. If you've never sewn before we usually start with something simple (pillowcase, pajama pants) and then work up to more and more com

Kelly did a great job showing me how to thread a sewing machine and load a bobbin, and get started on my first project. She has excellent cameras to show you close ups of her machine and to demonstrate what she is doing.

I have been playing guitar for 21 years. I make lesson plans based on each individual, so I don't teach every one the same boring songs or use the same regiment with everyone. I want to teach you what YOU want to learn.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brien

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

About Jeremy

In addition to working professionally an as actor for over 25 years, I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to act

Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes.
The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself.
I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential.
The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.

About Teresa

I am a graduate of Northern IL University with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I have 22 years of teaching experience where I have traveled to the homes. Students enjoy my passion that I have with the instrument. I started teaching in 1991 and have been teaching several students since t

The musical and academic success of my students is my number one priority! Each person's voice is unique and special to them, no one else has the voice that YOU have; therefore, I approach each and every student differently by tailoring a very personal and individual lesson plan for each of my students. I take a very holistic approach and encourage my students to use their whole body when singing to maintain a healthy instrument.

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 Cer

I feel we are off to a great start. Thanks!
Marina
Ron is an excellent and attentive teacher. He is very attuned to his students abilities, health constrains and inspirations. Ron knows how to make me move forward without clanging me too much and at the same time to achieve a progress. I am looking toward our lessons every week with the expectation to learn something new or refine my practice. Even though I started taking classed via zoom during the pandemic, these one on one instructions enabled me to make a tremendous progress in my practice. I hope to continue to learn from Ron a great more and to borrow from his bottomless optimism: we all need some positivity in our lives during these challenging times. Ron, many thanks for everything!
Linda
I was nervous about our first lesson, and there was no need to be! Ron was patient and kind, and went at the slow pace we wanted. And this is REAl tai chi!

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …

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... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair?
