As far as chess goes, anyone can learn how to move a piece, control the board, or utilize move patterns. The thing that separates the average from the adept is the understanding of the multiple levels of "playing". Starting with your mind set, moving on to the game board, and ultimately defeating the opponent sitting across from you...

Defeating your opponent is literally the goal of chess. So, it is important to remember to have fun while being competitive.

I am a Chess Player, and have been since elementary school where I joined the chess club and became addicted to the game. That's when found out my younger brother was cheating when he taught me how to play a few weeks before. Needless to say he cant win against me anymore...OK fine, he gets lucky sometimes...at the end of the day we supported each other and our friends at a bunch of chess tournaments!

Now, at this point in my life, it is time to share some chess knowledge and support someone who is looking for that ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

Tarek has been teaching electronics classes for my 13 yr old. He is thorough in explaining each step over the  video. Taking classes online needs special skill, especially with Arduino kit.  My son has been looking forward to every class. Showing circuits in the shared screen and explaining and making sure he is wiring things right needs lots of patience. Tarek has been enjoy doing this. Overall my kid has been happy to work with Tarek and will recommend him to anyone.

GAMING MUSIC FOR PIANO:

This is a special course Ms. Melissa is offering! She is teaching video game music on piano to all those gamers out there!

Ms. Melissa likes to learn video game music in her spare time, from games such as Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Skyrim, and so on.

She understands that a lot of piano students want to learn this type of music, so for a limited time she is offering to skip the introductory classes and get straight to work!

NOTE: This course does not teach the basics of piano (note reading, technique or notation) Ms. Melissa strongly suggests this course for students who already have at least some knowledge of these fundamentals.

NOTE: Can be taken IN CONJUNCTION with regular piano lessons, or on its own!

About Melissa

Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals. She is currently teaching out of her

We love our online lessons with Melissa! We just prop up the phone or iPad on a chair and Melissa can guide my daughter as if she was sitting right next to her!! She keeps her engaged and focused with her encouraging approach and current song choices. Voice lessons are also going great with Melissa demonstrating or singing along as needed. I spoke with A LOT of instructors and music schools and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone!

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?
