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.

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 Da-Rell
I am a hip-hop/house/contemporary dancer with professional/classical training, an academic background, and a passion for taking my students to the next level. I received my degrees in Dance, Psychology and Philosophy, and use these fields as a framework to help direct and assist students in learning how to train their bodies and minds in many different disciplines. I've lived in many cities and always learned each city's dance styles.
I can teach: popping, locking, waving, tutting, liquid, sliding, house, footwork, breakdancing, acrobatics, choreography, improvisation, and theatrical.
I can help you build your own style. A style that specifically pertains to you. I'll show you how to incorporate concepts, themes, and ideas, to tell a story, or to just express yourself through movement and rhythm.
I love teaching, and I love that look i
n a persons face after they get something that was tough. I love helping them understand what they could do differently to yield different results.
If you want to learn hip hop, house, or fusion- I am a very patient yet motivating teacher. I can be strict at times, but only when needed ;-)

Classes focus on ideas and concepts as well as ways to act them out. We learn how to utilize balance, emotion, finesse, attention, and focus to transition between movements. Exploring performing with character, style, technique, and form to develop their own individual philosophies on movement. We dissect different instruments and rhythms to experience them in different parts of the body. Integrating hip hop, ballet, modern, house, and martial arts into one cohesive style.
My goal is to foster artistic growth and to help you surprise yourself!

Da-Rell and I hit it off right away. In less than a day we already had a dance lesson planned, and we got right to it. Da-Rell has groove and is the number one recommended hip-hop dance trainer from the Take Lessons company. We went over moon walking, sliding / gliding, and other modern hip-hop moves. Da-Rell also helped film the dance moves on camera so I could keep the video as a study guide. Thank you Da-Rell!

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!

I have been taking Liam's Tai Chi/ Qi Gong class for nearly two years now. He is a dynamic teacher that is sensitive to different types of learning paces and styles (both eastern and western) and employs both in his classes. His explanations are simple and he always relates the movement back to its origin as a martial arts defense/offensive move which helps one establish the intention behind the movement. I have learned yang short form and chen style short form from him. I would highly recommend that you take his class if you are interested in beginning or continuing a tai chi practice. Through my practice I have found a healthy way to manage stress and anxiety.

About Nick
My name is Nick and I have been tutoring in writing since I was in high school. I love to work with students from grade school to grad school and help to make lasting adjustments that improve writing over the long term.

I became a Writing Consultant at St. John's University where I worked with hundreds of students during every stage in the writing process. From brainstorming topics to write about, all the way down to making sure references have been correctly annotated, I covered it all. I can help you with any and every stage of the writing process that is giving you trouble and ensure that you are more equipped with strategies to help avoid any familiar difficulties going forward.

The experience I have in teaching writing coupled with a positive attitude and personality make for a pleasant and productive tutoring session that will
alleviate the stress of your assignment, course, or subject matter and leave you feeling more confident in yourself and your ability to complete similar work in the future.

I genuinely want to and enjoy helping you become better and accomplish what you need to. I am excited to help out and hope to hear from you soon!

Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him.

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !
