About Ross
Ross has been teaching for five years in both a school environment - in which he helped develop a performing arts department from the ground up - as well as private lessons, where his students succeeded musically and theatrically, having performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, with the Rockettes, and on international tours. His teaching philosophy is simple. Everyone can sing, most simply don't know how.

As a performer himself, Ross is a singer, actor, and photographer who graduated from the prestigious New York University with a Dual-Degree Master's of Music in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy. He has performed across the country regionally and on tour, in such iconic roles as "Marius" in Les Miserables, "Jack" and "The Baker" in Into the Woods, "Roger" in A New Brain, and "Anthony" in Sweeney Todd.

Proud member of Actors' Equity

Hi, everyone! I'm a graduate from Gnesin Academy of Music, with Master's degree. I acquired my background in Belarus and Russia, countries with rich musical history, traditions and well established musical education. As a concert performer (accordion and piano) I have quite a big experience which I'm trying to incorporate into my teaching practice. It is always a great pleasure to share my passion for music and art in general with anybody interested!

It's been quite a journey in trying to find an accordion teacher and a place that rents accordions. Anyway, I found both. I found Ivan through this website and I have to say that he is great! He always gets back to me via email and he is very supportive and informative in our lessons. I think he has the positive attitude and knowledge that is crucial to being a good music teacher. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

About Sylvia
Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training.

I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009.

I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patient, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone
can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!

About Alexander
My current teaching focus is helping to enable young people to develop confidence, self-direction and self-reliance in their life's work by unleashing their creativity in various subjects while offering them new skills and techniques.

I have been enthusiastically teaching for over twenty-five years, generally in the fields of fine art and web development. Previously, I founded an alternative K-12 school in New Jersey, co-founded a Brooklyn based summer camp, and most recently, co-founded play:groundNYC, a junkyard playground for children on Governors Island in New York City, where children are self-directed in their play with an array of junk materials for uninhibited play and discovery.

I am a certified New York State art teacher, have taught K-12, college, graduate, and continuing education. I have a Masters in Fine Art from Pars
ons School of Design, The New School University and a Bachelors of Arts from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

Alex is kind and patient. He is always well prepared, explains things clearly and makes an effort to come up with new activities. We're glad we found a teacher so close to home and we feel lucky. My daughter looks forward to every class. Sometimes Alex's sons join the lesson. They are lovely - my daughter really enjoys their company and I'm glad that she has both individual instruction as well as the chance to work with his kids.

Alex is an amazing teacher who explains things very clearly and gives plenty of examples so any beginner in Web Design can follow along easily and implement those concepts in their own websites.

About Gabriela
I started the Art carer when I was 8 years old! I started drawing cartoons and fine art work masterpieces because I love it and I could understand it. I actively took a variety of workshop being a teen age to adulthood.

In 2010 I graduated from University of Puerto Rico from the Fine Art Department with the opportunity to do an Art in Residence in my last graduating year. Luckily to me I started running a professional workshop since this times. Under this program we got the amazing opportunity to go as far as our creativity allows. There were no limits, from sculpture, to paintings, to installations, to drawings.

After graduation I continue studies research in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in the Polytechnic University of Spain. Studding abroad, I got the opportunity to meet international perspectives on the Arts
. Historical research and the chemistry of art supplies where my new deed. I got involve in multiple antiques preservation projects under the direction of multiple professionals of the field in Spain, San Francisco, and New York.

I started teaching professionally in 2013, after my Master's was accomplished. I have being working with people all ages. Mostly I do free lance adult courses and during day time, I teach children ages 9 to 11 at school art education programs. At the present moment I live in New York. I run 2 painting workshops and work part time at Split Level Gallery. I keep myself pretty active on the arts, always with a very positive perspective.

If is good, is possible!

About Sandra
Hello everyone!!! I'm a happy-go-lucky lady from Los Angeles, California. I've been studying traditional and classical art ever since I was a young girl, and found myself frustrated throughout the years trying to find like-minded people who value and prioritize the Academic Art method that the Old Masters of the past have gone through to become as great as they were (William A. Bouguereau, Eugene Delacroix and John Singer Sargent, to name a few). This led me to venture out into New York City and pursue my higher education there. As challenging as it was to keep my head above water with money and culture shock, I finally graduated four years later in the spring of 2017.

My goals now are to help other artists gain knowledge in attaining the highest possible accuracy in the foundations of drawing and painting, and ensure that they receive
a classical realist education that I desperately yearned for in my past. I consider myself boundlessly generous with my knowledge and passionate to share what I know with the world. I hope to meet you all, and thanks for reading!

I love drawing and painting and do so constantly. I have been making drawings since I was a kid and I am currently in my second year studying at the Grand Central Atelier in Queens, NY. I would like to share my knowledge and curiosity for the world with new students. Through a series of simple and fun exercises involving visual problem solving, observation, research, and analysis, I can help you learn to draw the world as you see and imagine it.
