Alida was fantastic! She made me feel completely comfortable and took everything step by step. She focused on strengthening my weaknesses by showing me new stretches and techniques every lesson. Alida truly is an amazing teacher. Even though I've only worked with her for five days, Alida has made my technique and main focus. It was the best and I plan (and hope) to work with her again and again!

Alida is one of the best, most caring dance teachers I've ever had. In just a few short lessons she taught me to really believe in myself, boosted my confidence and taught me technique and important combinations for important upcoming auditions. She is very patient and really catered to my needs. She doesn't ever waste any time and I always leave a lesson feeling good and really feeling like I'm getting my moneys worth. Very thankful I found her and would recommend anyone take lessons with her.

I rate her tops.

Alida is a very good teacher. Never once did she come late. She has great manners and great teaching techniques. She breaks down steps n make them easier to learn so I do not get frustrated and bored. Since I'm someone who never danced jazz before she was exactly what I needed. she quickly grasped what I could or could not do n was most patient. I rate her tops.

Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

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.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

About Henry
I am an experienced, and currently active amateur fighter from nyc. I have competed in major tournaments like New York boxing tournament, the metropolitan tournament, and the daily news golden gloves. I was a semi finalist in the 2016 daily news golden gloves and awarded "fighter of night". I've appeared in short films like "standing 8" and "revolver", pix 11 news once did a coverage story on me which was pretty awesome.
as a fighter I am always trying to push myself past my limits, and as student of the sport i am always learning.
I really enjoy interacting with people, I have great communication skills which make teaching pretty easy sailing. everyone is different of course but over my years of both learning and teaching I found that when having fun; learning becomes a lot easier, so I will always try and make sure you're havin
g a great time.
boxing is a beautiful sport. it really challenges the individual both on a physical and mental level. it really teaches you how to push forward even when you think you can't keep going.
boxing is a great sport, one that I feel each person should try at least once in their life time.
