About Michelle
Michelle grew up in Miami, Florida and developed a deep love for movement at a very young age. She graduated with a B.F.A. in Dance (with honors) and a minor in business from the Florida State University and while there performed work by choreographers including Larry Keigwin, Martha Graham, Gerri Houlihan, and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. After graduating she became certified in Pilates Mat (Balanced Body) and relocated to New York City to pursue her career as a professional dancer. Since moving to NY, she has had the pleasure of working with JKing Dance Company and Sleep No More among many other performing artists in the city.

I had to attend a buddy's Wedding. I'm in my fifties and never been a good dancer. When I attended Wedding receptions two to three decades ago, I would manage to get through the dancing, sort of. This time, however, there was no getting around it. I would have to know how to dance because the woman that was accompanying me to the Wedding and reception was a Dance minor in College! I had a month to get it together so I contacted Michelle through Take Lessons.

Michelle is a patient knowledgeable teacher. She started me with basic dancing steps to “Panda Bear - Doin' it Right .” The basic dance steps that Michelle taught me can be used for virtually all Rock/Disco/Techno music that you will encounter. The tempos might vary, but the steps remain the same. When I became more proficient Michelle taught me line dances such as the “Macarena” and the “Cha Cha Slide.”

When I attended the Wedding reception with the Dance minor, I was confident and comfortable on the Dance floor thanks to Michelle!

Highly Recommended.

About Eddie
My name is Eddie and I would like to introduce people of all ages to the beautiful Chinese art form of Tai Chi Chuan. I am a certified instructor and I have been a practitioner since 2007.

I love teaching and seeing people discovering a new skill and sense that can enhance their lives. During a lesson , I guide students through a series of safe and gentle full body warm ups, showing proper breathing techniques, meditation and demonstrating proper posture of the form. I discuss the philosophy and history of the art, explain martial applications
and promote a fun and relaxing atmosphere for students. I teach Qigong, 8 ,10 and 24 posture Yang style Tai Chi, and Chen Man Ching sword form . I encourage everyone to keep practicing what they have learned from sessions.

About SAM
My mission: To nurture the game of Golf by coaching people towards their personal goals, swing development, maximum potential, and pure love of the sport through the PGA Experience of excellence and FUN.

Level 1 PGA apprentice at Dyker Beach Golf Club. I'm a golfer / athlete who gets along really well with a wide variety of human beings. I'm also an excellent communicator so conveying advice and drills to my students can be really fun and enhance your abilities. Golf is a simple game that takes a lot of mental focus and understanding. Explaining the game in a way you can understand makes me happy as a teacher. Seeing you shave strokes off your rounds using the ideas we talk about and drills we do during lessons makes me a proud instructor.

Geographically, I serve Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, parts of Long Island within reason, and
Staten Island, the Bronx and NJ for an extra gas and toll fee. Be sure to mention where you need the lessons in your request or else requests will be passed.

My lesson plans are specialized. First we will analyze your personal game and extract what exact issues you need working on the most. Based on your needs and goals, we will do various drills interspersed with tips and corrections to your swing and approach. The curriculum we cover is based on the PGA Experience for the fundamentals of golf. The lessons are built around improving all areas of your game with focused attention to your weaknesses. Whether it's distance off the tee, accuracy on approaches or better putts around the green, I can help with specific work to make you better based on your unique needs.

You have the option of working on specific parts of your game with me such as putting, chipping, sand shots or driving. Locations could be at the driving range, at the practice greens or elsewhere. Another option would be to play an entire round with me as your caddie and swing coach. This option would be the most in depth and lead to the greatest improvement in your game. In this scenario I will ride along and take shots with you analyzing what you need to think about and plan for in order to execute the correct shot given the circumstances.

For pure beginers, ask about my 4 week intro to golf half hour specials.

I will be available to you day and night via email, phone or text in order to make sure you are doing the right things off the course so your improvements remain in tact over the span of our lessons.

Ive played golf unsucessfully for years and decided I wanted a lesson. I was always too nervous about playing in front of a golf instructor to try my hand at a lesson. But I finally decided to try one, and Im very happy I did. Sam couldn't have been more friendly, helpful, encouraging and confident in his efforts to improve my game.

I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve. Sam is a very good golfer. He also has a wonderful perspective about the game. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

First golf lesson ever and I could not have picked a better instructor!
(and I would not want any other instructor)

Sam was professional, personable and very knowledgeable about the game itself, as well as the simple things, we don’t think about, to better your game.

He was extremely supportive, even though I messed quite often. His words and attitude were helpful as well as positive and supportive.

I would not hesitate booking another session(s) with him in the future.

I couldn't have found a better golf instructor than Sam. He's keen at identifying his students' strengths and works patiently and incisively to address and improve problem areas. He's clearly passionate about golf and is well-equipped to help any student sharpen their technique and in doing so, have more fun. Highly recommended!

Traci is a fantastic teacher because she is a fantastic dancer. She knows how to guide you whether you are overcoming an injury or trying to take your dancing to the next level. Traci takes ballet seriously but with lots of humor and grace!

I reached out to Traci to brush up on my ballet technique when I was preparing for an audition. She is a wonderful teacher! Her corrections are always specific and very helpful. Working with her has really boosted my technique and made me feel more confident walking into dance calls.

As a result, I started my coaching career since 2015. I've taught many students of all ages with different levels. If you have interest improving your skill, please feel free to contact me.

Huang is an exceptional instructor. He is patient, thoughtful and just has a lovely calming disposition. in terms of his instructional skills I would offer this: a gifted teacher is one who immediately lasers in on what subtle adjustments will have the biggest impact, and then, equally important, he is able to articulate/communicate to his student...how to successfully incorporate these changes. I took one lesson to try it out and now I am set to purchase ten more!!

About Zach
The demand for racquet stringers are getting high and If you want to make some side money this is a great way to do it. Also if you are a tennis/squash player and you are tired of paying someone to string your racquets this is an option. I personally made around 4700 in 1 semester of college charging people 25 dollars to string their racquets. (25 was the labor fee it was an extra 10 if you needed strings) I will be bringing my own tools but you will need a table set machine or have your own electric one.
