Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

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!

About Sara
Hello! I'm Sara!

I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.

While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.

In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).

Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.

I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.

Please inc
lude your area and availability in your messages!

I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

About Tianzuo
Hi, ping-pongers! My name is Tianzuo. I am from China. I just graduated from New York University this year. I was a table tennis athlete in China before 2015. After I came here, I realized there are so many ping pong fans in New York, which interests me a lot. I wanted to deliver the happiness of playing ping pong. 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. I will not let you down.

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 Bailey
I am currently the Visual Arts Teacher as well as the Director of Advisory at Northside Charter High School in Brooklyn, NY. I have helped develop the school’s culture significantly over the past five years I have been there.

My mission at Northside Charter High School was to create a curriculum that shows our students that their presence is essential to the ever-changing arts community. This led to creating the curriculum for Northside Television, which is Northside's first web-based school news network. NTV has grown to become a staple in Northside’s community and has brought about positive changes to the culture of the school. My master's thesis based on this course entitled, “Media Production and its Role in Preparing High School Students to be 21st Century Learners”, provides data on how our program has brought new skill-sets to t
he senior cohort. Students of all backgrounds are on the screen and are representing their community, their ideals, and their concerns.

Due to the success of our program, PBS chose Northside to become an official NewsHour Student Reporting Lab. CNN Director and three-time Emmy award-winning director, Luanne Dietz, mentored our seniors. Students also have the opportunity to utilize PBS’s resources by offering them internships and personal recommendations.

I’ve also worked in conjunction with local Brooklyn galleries such as the RAM Gallery and 630 Flushing to provide Portfolio Development students with the opportunity to display and sell their artwork.

She is a well versed artist with many different skills, though where she shines is in drawing which has helped me in my understanding in the concepts of light and shadow, gesture and figure drawing, as well as how different strokes and the effects they carry, whether using graphite, charcoal, pastels, and other mediums. It all came to use in my college application process for developing my portfolio as I was accepted into a variety of colleges and universities across the country

Ms Goldenbaum has been by far the best artistic navigator. Not only has she taught me how to stroke a brush, she taught me how to really tap in with my mind and become one with the art itself. If it wasn’t for Ms Goldenbaum, I wouldn’t know as much as I do now about things like abstract art , water colors and primary colors. Shouts to Ms G!
