About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. A couple years ago I began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people. I've recently moved to the Harrisbug, PA area, and am now teaching lessons here!

Thanks!
Josh

My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

About Maureen
I have been knitting for more than 35 years, and was taught by a neighbor when I was 12 years old. I found it fascinating and rewarding to transform something disorganized (a ball of yarn) into something purposeful and beautiful. As I grew up, and my world expanded, I found the world of fiber was bigger than I ever imagined.

There are so many options for pursuing the craft of knitting -- whether one chooses simple natural fibers, high end fibers, or inexpensive yarn from the discount bin. Regardless of what you knit with, it always comes back home: knitters everywhere are united by the inner stillness of sitting with needles in hand, the yarn passing through the fingers, watching an item take shape from the knitter's own hands.

The act of creation on the small, humble scale, in meditative fashion is what keeps drawing me in, and
I welcome you to be drawn in, too.

About Diana
Hello there- I'm Professor Diana Smith.

As a teacher, I have incorporated values just as a company sets values for their business. A few of my values is to give my students transparency, motivation, practical experiences and autonomy. I currently serve as a Business Communication Professor.

I get REALLY excited about a lot of things. Marketing, Business, Communication, and writing-- but also tacos & nachos, cosmetics, coffee, reading personal development books, practicing positivity and optimism by blogging and vlogging!

I am a creative, I write poetry, short stories and self help blog post. I love to create.

One of my best pieces of advice to anyone, is to read a book! There is so much peace you can find in reading.

My life is filled with sunshine because of my 9 year old son name Carter -who enjoys basketball and Fortni
te. He also enjoys spending all of my money on v-bucks.
For me- providing awareness and educating my students is a passion.

There is fun to be had in every classroom and every learning environment.

My #1 goal is to help you understand the dynamics of the modern business environment while understanding the way communication influences each business facet.
Anything you need, just ask. I may not have the answer but I will find the answer.
