I have played a lot of on-line Texas Hold-Em. My biggest take was a 12k win. I understand the game from the basics to the more advanced techniques. THIS IS TEXAS HOLD 'EM ONLY.

About Randy

Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

I just want to say, "I am very pleased working with Thomas." I never thought that I could master the game of chess especially by being impatient and a slower learner. This is my fourth lesson and I have already played a game of chess. Thank You So Much, Thomas. I can't wait until my next lessons.

Hula hooping is a magical form of movement that is as much fun to learn as it is to watch. It is a great work out and stress relief. I have been studying hoop dance for 6 years and it is by far my favorite thing to do. I love to teach and guide others on their hoop journeys. My students experience immediate results and will build a good platform on which to build their own personal hoop flow.

About Morgan

My name is Morgan. I am a hula hoop dance performer and instructor for Spin Happy Hoop Dance in Cincinnati. I have been hula hooping since 2009 and take pleasure in sharing my art with others! I specialize in teaching both children and adults hula hoop dance. I have a ton of knowledge to share, so
