About Marlisa
I am a potter who specializes in functional tableware. I teach in my studio and also at local art centers. I teach throwing on the potter's wheel and hand-building. My work has been exhibited in national juried shows.

I also am a textile artisan. My love is doll-making, in the Waldorf style. I teach knitting (Continental style), crochet, and sewing.

My other love is gardening. I grow tree and herbaceous peonies. My cottage style garden is planted for fragrance and naturalness. I emphasize growing perennials because their beauty increases each year.

I have had nothing but the best experience working with Marlisa. She is patient, she takes the time to verify that you've grasped a concept you're struggling with and works to find the best way to communicate with YOU. I don't think anyone would regret spending an hour or two learning and chatting with Marlisa. I feel so inspired and more confident each time I leave a session. If you're on the fence about trying this; don't hesitate!

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Marlisa is an awesome teacher. I took a pottery class at Glen Echo years ago and was very disappointed, but with Marlisa's excellent teaching skills and enthusiasm for the art, I left her studio feeling like I wanted to buy a wheel and start throwing. I appreciate her hands-on approach and always felt taken care of attended to. Marlisa is a true artist and excellent teacher!!! I highly recommend her.

About Wahb
I have practiced Many different Martial Arts, like Karate, Kung Fu, Philipinian Kali eskrima since the age of 10. When I turned 25 I fell in love with Kickboxing and Thai boxing, after I have practiced these combat sports disciplines for a couple of years I took a Kickboxing and Muay Thai course for coaches with the Italian Academy and Federation of combat sports that was then named FENASCO under the leadership of well renown coach Carlo Diblasi. After a few months I received my instructor's diploma and I have since then coached many athletes, some of whom went onto becoming national and international champions. I have trained consistently for many years with world legendary kickboxing and Thai Boxing champions like Ramon Dekkers, Andre Mannhart and Rob Kaman, just to name a few. I have had the chance to coach in South Africa, in Dubai an
d now I do privately coach in Los Angeles, California, USA.
I am deeply passionate about coaching and sharing my passion and experience with others.

I was referred to Wahb after seeing the physical and lifestyle changes of a good friend. She lost 15 pounds and was so much happier as she was eating clean and having fun. I wanted to know her secret!

When I met Wahb he was friendly, kind, energetic, knowledgeable and I felt safe having him in my home. Our first session entailed evaluating my "body type", asking key questions about my goals, eating habits, any past injuries along with exercises/activities that I enjoy. Next we began our challenging workout. Usually I walk on the treadmill and never see results or feel soreness. Wahb made sure I was sweating and learning new exercises I had never seen before. Wahb was taking a lot of notes while he was showing me the correct form and explaining every exercise step-by-step. Every thing made sense.

After a challenging workout, Wahb customized a meal plan for me for the next 2 weeks. The meals were delish and 6 pounds melted away without starving.

My goal is to drop 30 pounds. I see Wahb 3 days per week and 1-2 days at the gym. I have lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks eating what I love and mixing our workouts from inside strength training and stretching to outdoor cardio. Mixing things up seems to be the key to Wahb's technique. He's a wealth of information.

Recently my husband has been commenting on how great I look and he has scheduled 6 sessions with Wahb. I recommend Wahb to anyone who wants to see results and work with someone passionate who really cares about your health and wellness. He is not your average gym trainer looking to take your money. I also love that Wahb is available anytime for questions. He's very attentive with his clients.

Expect to work hard and you'll see beautiful results!

· Sports Nutrition · In home
I must say that, for a man who is 50 of age, and always looking like he is in his mid 30"s, Wahb has figured it all out! What he taught me about nutrition is probably the most valuable thing when it comes to keeping healthy eating right, eating light, yet have an incredible amount of energy at all times. Nutrition with Wahb is made simple yet incredibly delicious, the ingredients are all natural and organic in the most part, mostly vegetables, greens and seeds, with a few selected meats and a lot of healthy herbs and spices. A basic nutrition that is rich with all the essential nutrients, and where all the superfluous food is almost totally discarded. If one wants to keep healthy, strong and young looking... Wahb is the guy!
Needless to add that he is so proficient in any type of physical exercise, combat sports, self defense and many various sports. His main focus is how to exercise to be fit maintaining a constant attention to improving health and well being.

· Self Defense · In studio
Wahb is honestly the best trainer I have ever worked with. His self defense methods are great, and I have never gotten a better workout with another trainer. I really love how patient and kind he is, while also being tough and kicking your butt at the same time! He makes you feel so comfortable, and doesn't make you discouraged at all. Rather, he encourages and inspires me to push my body to the limit, while maintaining safety, of course. I would recommend Wahb for anyone who wants to get fit, the healthy and safe way!!! :)

About Daniel
Hello, my name is Dan, and it would be a great joy to share with you much of what makes me happy and which can enrich your life, too!

Would you like to learn how to create beautiful images? Learn from the 2008 Grand Prize winner at the Hocking Hills Shoot-the-Hills juried Photography Contest and have much fun refining and organizing your own work in Photoshop and Lightroom

Have you ever wanted to play that tune? You can do that and much more!

Have you ever wanted to know what's _really_ said in that foreign tongue part of a movie or opera? Have fun with languages while spared the school trauma, especially Italian and French, as we watch movies, read the best literature of these cultures and - only if you want - listen to music and enjoy it like the native speakers.

Any subject becomes a joy and an adventure!

I knew a bit of french going in and needed to practice listening skills and conversation. It was a lot of work, I have far to go in being comfortably conversational, but this was the jumpstart I needed to know what I needed to do going forward. Thanks Daniel!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

About Jason
I recently started working at Milestone Event Group as the lead photographer/videographer. Photography is an opportunity for me to capture life's moments and using various techniques photograph images not view-able to the naked eye. The geek in me loves the challenge of dealing with so so many technical variables like light, depth of field, composition, shutter speed and so on and so on. I enjoy helping others learn the joy of photography.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. I retired from the Navy in 2011 after working 20 years in law enforcement. I also run my own company and website doing fitness equipment sales and service.

About Erica
Hi All!

My name is Erica Jensen. I've studied the Visual Arts from third grade to college- about 14 years of experience-. I have been asked quite frequently to teach and share my knowledge with the masses; through either youtube or for personal classes, and I only recently have taken that advice and decided to share what I know. Only up until recently, did I think that what I had to offer wasn't anything anyone else couldn't get from somone else; UNTIL- I decided to help out a very close friend of mine with a college project and what she told me really struck home. She said, " You made me feel like I can do anything, no matter the end product. Even though you encouraged me to keep practicing to ensure my result would progress; what I took away from you helping me, moreso than anything, was the ability to make me feel like nothing matt
ers besides how I FEEL. Which created a farr better product than I ever thought it would be.."

That just reassured me that my philosphy on Drawing and Painting may be similar to others but still is MY OWN. And I should've thought of it that way from the beginning because, I believe whole heartedly that everyone's expression is unique no matter what! What's yours is yours, and what's mine is mine. And I would encourage you to OWN IT at every moment because that's the truth behind ALL ARTIST- We decided to OWN IT and let our expressions blossom to unimaginable heights.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Why not have your yo
ungsters sit for an actual tutoring session and learn something while being entertained? I like to incorporate age-appropriate art (drawing) or activities in any of my academic sessions to keep my students engaged and entertained.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

I have a master's degree in Art. as an active artist, i spend my time producing pieces professionally as well as teaching to people of all ages for over 10 years. I work with all medias, for example: acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels, charcoal, and pencils. My joy for teaching comes from watching my students grow as artist as they improve their own style and expression. I believe the most effective way to teach artist to seek out the inner talent in each individual. The journey that is learning about art is discovering how to make it.
