About Daniel

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice. I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothi

I’ve always struggled with math. It was no surprise that I had significant trouble with the GRE Quantitive section. I had tried one tutor before working with Daniel. I ended up getting the same score that I had on past tests and I felt that I was never going to get past the hurdle. I decided to find another tutor and after looking around a while and messaging several tutors on TakeLessons I connected with Daniel. Hands down he has the best methods for how I learn. He provides lesson plans, homework, and goes through every problem step by step to ensure that you are comprehending. He also tests your knowledge by having you basically teach him what you’ve learned. If you can’t explain it, then you don’t know it, is what he says. It has been awesome working with him and I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone that needs help with math at any level.

I have been a PBIA instructor for over 13 years as well as player for 20+ years. I am no magician, I cannot make anyone a better pool player! However, for those that are interested and motivated, I can provide the knowledge, guidance and tools for any player to become their own coach and maximize their skills.

About James (JP)

I can teach you anything from fundamentals like stance, pre-shot routine and stroke mechanics to more advanced concepts such as bank and kick shots, jump shots, combinations, caroms and billiard shots. So no matter if you've never held a pool cue or you're a seasoned veteran, take your game to the

The great experience started with the first chat, well before the first lesson. I knew this was going to be very good, because he asked several pertinent questions, which let him know my general level. That way, he could already have a plan when we first met. Improvement is already evident after the first lesson. I plan on many more sessions with JP.

James did a wonderful job as my teacher.

If you have felt like youtube videos don't give you enough guidance in folding Origami, I would be delighted to take you step by step taking things at your pace and level as we explore the craft of Origami together.

I was born in Japan and origami was something that came naturally to me as a child. The love of Origami was passed down to me from my Japanese Grandmother who decorated her room with all of her paper creations.

It's been in my blood and comes as second nature to me however I know how complex some of these folds can be and my goal as a teacher is to help anyone be able to fold anything, while throwing in stories from Japan and Origami trivia!

Kat is a thoughtful and gifted teacher, and is great with kids! She is teaching my 7 year old to sing, and play the ukulele. She has been such an inspiration to my daughter who had previously been frustrated and discouraged by taking lessons from two prior teachers, so much so my daughter wants to take up guitar and possibly songwriting in the future. My daughter always looks forward to lessons with Kat. I am also happy she practices and does her homework because she wants and chooses to do so, and not because I am bugging her about it! It's so refreshing and such a relief! Kat has a special way of connecting and encouraging my daughter to develop her passion to sing and play music. Thank you Kat! Keep up the great work!

I have played a lot of on-line Texas Hold-Em. My biggest take was a 12k win. I understand the game from the basics to the more advanced techniques. I have worked for on-line sites, played many live tournaments, table play etc...
THIS IS TEXAS HOLD 'EM ONLY.
This class is directed more at the beginner and the "intermediate" player who feels stuck, unable to move to the upper echelon. This class is a stout review of the solid basics required to win more than you lose. That is, to come out ahead in the long run, instead of walking away at the wrong time, or simply playing bad hands or getting pulled into expensive pots on a draw. If you understand any of this description, this class is for you. If not, I would look elsewhere. This is not a class for advanced players. I am an advanced player and such a pairing would be an attempt at lateral instruction and that dynamic rarely works in my experience.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

"This is my 2nd review now for Atousa - which alone says all good about her. I've had 5 lessons with her, and Atousa is AMAZING! She has just about the PERFECT COMBINATION of Method and Expertise. Patience - yep, she has that. Encouraging - yep, check that box too. She is not a time stickler; she will go up and beyond to help you learn your stuff! The ONLY challenge I ever have is with the technology with SKYPE - and that is decidedly NOT on Atousa. If there is a quality on desires, seeks in Tutor/Teacher - I dare say Atousa possesses it and manifests it in ABUNDANCE! I can't Recommend Atousa enough. If you want to get good at Chess - Atousa is a BRILLIANT mind and EXCEPTIONAL teacher! You won't be sorry! :) :) :)"

"I normally don’t leave reviews, but after gone trough a few mediocre chess teachers, we are so happy we found Sam and I wanted to take a minute to say that Sam is an phenomenal chess teacher, our children( girl and boy, 6 & 9 ) Love his lessons and have grown so much in terms of chess skill level. Sam is very professional, super patient and uses exceptional effective teaching methods. He’s the best chess teacher we have found in south Florida, after years of changing teachers! Thank you Sam!"

To be honest, I was a little afraid to book lessons online with all the scammers out there. But she is wonderful and I know I'm going to want more lessons with her. I could finally make the sewing project I want to make knowing that I have her there for assistance. Thank you SO much Dawn!! I'm looking forward to our next class."
