Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.

We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

I am so grateful to have found Shauna for singing lessons. I have no prior experience singing and Shauna has taught me the fundamentals of singing and how to use my voice. She possesses every quality in an instructor I look for. She's patient, observant, and you can tell she truly wants you to succeed. The online format fits with my schedule and my lesson has turned into one of my favorite things to look forward to each week.

A few months ago, I was applying to colleges and wanted to work on my acting skills. I thankfully found Shauna. She has been such an incredible, supportive teacher. She knows how to get you into your body and character, even over Zoom, and I have seen a lot of improvement in my acting skills from only a couple months of lessons. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for acting lessons!

Hello, my name is Anna and I have more than 22 years of the experience in ballroom dancing. I can teach Latin, ballroom, rhythm, smooth dances, including West Coast swing, salsa, merengue, Argentine tango, almost all couple dances, you name it. I have a huge experience working with the beginners with both left feet and with gold dancers, as well with pro dancers; I’m a national champion of my country and World Cup finalist, but as you remember: I have a huge experience with the beginners and two left feeters) I do believe in dancing, both: social and competitive and that’s why along with physical teaching I want to reach to everyone and share benefits of ballroom dancing)
Do you need to have a partner?! Preferably...but if you happen to be alone at home, I’ll teach you using whatever you will have around: tables, chairs, doors, etc.
Solo dancing?! Not a problem, I’ll teach you how to dance on your own
Wedding couple?! Great! I’ll teach you how to beautifuly dance together stress ...

Excellent instructor!! Great ability to teach!
Aliceann W.
We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

"I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!"
