Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

In this lesson, students can expect to learn how to plant flowers, peppers, and tomato plants in nice rich soil and pots. We will use seeds for the flowers, pepper plants, and tomato plants. We will start with paper cups and soil. By the end of May, we will transfer our flowers and vegetables to a garden. They will learn what plant food they can use and how much water they will need to make it grow. They will also learn how to weed their plants and clip off any dead part of the plant. I will start this lesson in mid-April and go through the end of May so we can see progress and growth of the plants.

This was a first for us completing online cheer training to keep my daughter engaged throughout COVID lockdown. Cheryl was kind and supportive of my daughter as she tried new cheers and movements.
Her daughter was also a great co-teacher!
Looking forward to week 2.
Kristiana B.
Cheryl was great!! She was very knowledgeable and patient. My daughter was able to learn what we would consider a lot on the very first lesson. Despite the technical difficulties we were having with our personal equipment Cheryl was able to work through those issues with us and continue a lesson. She was friendly kind and reassuring to my daughter who doesn’t always have the most confidence in herself. She is helping her learn something that she really wants to do And helping her with her self-confidence as well! Couldn’t ask for anything more! Thank you so much take lessons and Cheryl

Everyone gets to take home an infinity scarf and they all leave learning a new skill. Dawn works well with all ages, is patient, and really enthusiastic about teaching what she loves. We can't wait to have Dawn back to teach more classes this Fall!"

"I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve."

"We never thought we would have an International Master as our son's chess teacher.

We have a typical 7 year old. High on energy with zero patience. But Danial knows how to channel that energy into our son's lessons and helps him think strategically, analytically, and patiently. Our son's games have improved dramatically ever since he started with Danial. He has learned so many different startegies and techniques from him, and can easily identify them. Being so young himself, Danial is able to connect with kids at their level and make the lessons fun, yet challenging. Being so disciplined and focused himself, he is able to pass that on to our son. But most of all, he is inspiring. He always tells our son, "I did it, and you can too!". We couldn't have asked for a better teacher, and a role model. I highly recommend him."

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
