Edward and I had a horrible time trying to connect via the Take Lessons interface. I could see and hear him but he couldn't hear me. This being interactive doesn't work. We futzed with it for about 20 minutes and then went to Skype, which worked perfectly. Take Lessons needs to get their act together on their interface.

Once connected via Skype, we had an almost instant "buddy" connection. Eddie is really pleasant and very good at working with what you have, which in my case is not much. We spent the first ten or so minutes with me hitting simple shots with the cue ball only so he could study my "technique." He immediate spotted about three flaws and we spent the next thirty or so minutes working on grip, alignment, open and closed bridge (left hand use for a right hander) and ball striking for an on line shot. From there he had me shooting a simple cut shot explaining how to aim it, hit the spot and pocket the ball. I must have hit that shot for him 30 times with only ONE miss. The whole time he was giving me feedback on minor corrections and positive reenforcement when I got something right. We finished the hour with him giving me practice instructions for the next week and a brief conversation about sticks and tips. It turns out I lucked out and bought what he called "an excellent entry stick".

I played a match with a friend right after the lesson and applied what Eddie had given me in our lesson. I made a lot of shots I would normally not have expected to make utilizing Eddies instruction. I still lost the match (my friend is highly advanced) but gave him more of a game than normal, and won two out of five. I'm very pleased.

I am a certified tarot reader. If tarot cards intimidate you or you are just wanting to learn how to use the energies to help you grow spiritually on a daily basis, allow me to show you how these cards can have a tremendous positive impact on your daily life. Tarot cards get a bad rap from those who consider them to be some form of occult or other such practices. Truth is, these cards can be used for meditation, self growth, and guidance on a daily basis. These cards DO NOT have negative connotations or energies. They are merely a tool to help us better ourselves and gain insight into our own psyche. I can help you learn and/or get a reading if you may not be feeling ready to become a student of tarot just yet! Feel free to connect with me and we can discuss options such as a one card or three card reading or a lesson plan to help you read for yourself and others.

Dr. Suman is one of the most amazing people I have worked with. Her knowledge in the field is unmatched, but, I loved working with her because she is patient, kind, very compassionate, and will do all it takes to help her students.
