Want to learn more about "what makes you tick", what your energetic blueprint/makeup is? Or perhaps you know the basics, but you want to learn "to read" charts, or to work with "moving energy" (transits and progressions) more effectively.

Whatever your desire and current level of knowledge, astrology is a wonderful language and method of learning "how you work yourself" deeply, and how to understand/partner with others (and with the universe!) more effectively.

I can teach you about your chart in a more academic sense (I have 20 years of tutoring/teaching experience!)--OR we can integrate astrology with healing, meditative and/or creative practices, to help you integrate your inherent archetypal expression in a deeper, more impactful way.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.

Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

Karen is a meticulous teacher. She explains lessons in an accessible manner and gives you hands on experience under her direction. She takes time to ensure the student's understanding and proficiency before progressing. She is patient and kind. She was extremely flexible in scheduling our lessons. I learned to crochet and the basics of getting started, how to read patterns, supplies needed and much more. I love that I am now proficient at my new hobby thanks to such a wonderful teacher. Thank you Karen!
Beth
AWESOME I so enjoy working with Karen! In advance of today’s lesson, we coordinated re work on a summer shawl Project. We both thought a summer shawl addressing those summer air conditioned restaurants was a good project for folks like me that travel a bunch and need take along projects. With Karen’s guidance in mind, I bought gthe yarn. Then Karen showed me 6-9 different shawls she’s made so I could pick target shawl pattern that wasn’t above my ability and appealed to me. I’m now on my way; 3+Rows in and feeling confident of noteworthy progress til next session.
Beth
Encouraging, supportive, first class instructor. I signed up for lessons after I realized the kit I bought was above my knowledge level. It's been an awesome experience. I am more confident in reading instructions and making the (pattern specified) numerous different stitches. F2F lessons is the best; its been an awesome experience. I will take more lessons from Karen - she's just that good; a real gem for "take lessons".

Dipankar has been an absolute wonder for my chess improvement; after only one lesson! He has a real talent for finding one's weaknesses in their play simply by quickly analyzing their games which is a huge asset. Secondly, he also takes time to not only give you areas to work on, but also the means and resources to do so. Dipankar was constantly giving me advice as weeks went by and has been coaching me regardless of wether or not I am in a lesson! He is a natural teacher and a stellar guy. I recommend him for anyone looking to improve their chess.
Kelsey
My son is so excited about chess and increasing his skillset from lessons with Dipankar!
Jennifer
Dipankar is very knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated. I received lessons from him for 6 months and in that time I scored 1st place in the unrated category in my first chess tournament and went on to improve my rating by 200 points.
I highly recommend Dipankar for chess lessons!

"My experience as working along with Sid as his Chess Aide at various school locations; is he has excellent classroom management skills which in turn the students grasp the lessons more quickly. Also, the students are more engaged in the lessons as well. He is aware of making sure all students understand how each piece moves and knows what to do at the end of each lesson before they play a game. He praises each student on their ability and knowledge of chess and helpful with others who are still learning the basics. As a chess aide and helper for Sid, I thoroughly enjoy working with someone who has great enthusiasm!"
