It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

About Adenike
Hello,

My name is Adenike, you can call me Adé. I'm a trained fashion stylist and designer with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Rhode Island.

I have taught sewing and design, to people of all ages, genders, and abilities throughout my professional career. It began in 2002 when I decided to work with the Americorps, Teach America program. There I created and executed a lesson plan that taught students how to sketch, render, sew, read patterns and adjusts garments for personal to suit their personal needs. The program incorporated science, math, and history so that they had a practical and anthropological approach to fashion design. It was great, and I discovered that one of my other joys in life is teaching.

Most recently, I've worked with Hobby Quest, where I teach children in an after
-school setting. Hobby Quest requires an extensive background check because of that fact that work is done with students on school grounds. I can supply references that will attest to my professionalism and easy going nature.

***For both sewing and styling lessons, it's recommended that you schedule for a minimum of 60 minutes to get the most out of your session.
*** If interested in group sewing lessons, please see below.
-Maximum students: 15
-Minimum students: 7
- Class length: 1.5hrs
-Cost per student: $20 (please choose the $20 option when booking and repeat for each student)
(Discounts will be provided those booking a package of 6 or more group classes )

About Iavalesha
I am a professional makeup artist, and writing. I graduated from a military academy and transferred to Rowan cabarets comunity college, with an arts associates degree.

Makeup can take a lot of practice but once you are very patient everything will go well. I can help any students that need help with knowing how to put on makeup the right way and learn about cosmetics. I teach students how to use the right concealer, foundation, bronzer, highlighter and so on (etc). I teach students from ages 13 and up about makeup and how to express how they feel about putting on makeup and what it feels to have it on you face.

I also teach students about creative writing and how to start of with an interesting story about anything they can remember, whether it’s made up or it’s a true event. I’m general, I studied writing for about 4 years from now, a
nd help students from different ages. It’s not just about writing a sentence or a paragraph on a piece of paper and thinks it’s the best paper. I can help students with misspelled errors, capitalization, and a great title to go with your writing piece.
Whether it’s drama, horror, fictional, or a true story I’m here to help you become better at writing and better at knowing the basics of cosmetics.
