About Kevin

I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b

ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

I waited after a few lessons to give feedback. Very pleased. Kevin is full of knowledge -both relevant to music and other random fun facts! He is patient and will move at whatever pace you prefer. I look forward to continuing to improve my skills under his direction.

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 Cheryl

Are you excited about learning how to crochet? Are you ready to create great gifts, crafts, projects, and more, to keep, or give away to someone special? If yes, than come learn with me!

lly master the skill, and off to making beautiful crafty projects fast!

I am a full time online English Teacher, and a previous daycare owner for 10+years. I have tutored many of preschool and elementary students, with math, reading, phonics, writing etc for years and my students academic grades have improved tremendously; within the first few lessons. My teaching philosophy, is that learning requires more than just educating someone or acquiring new knowledge. In my opinion, I feel, that it is more so rather, are entire inner and outer circle of well being; which is why my approach to teaching is from an aural, visual and curiosity perspective. Clay Patrick Bedford, once said: โ€œYou can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he livesโ€ My teaching techniques are always challenging. However, very exciting, interesting, with a blast of fun and lots of activities; very suitable and appropriate for your child's grade level. I always assess, recognize strengths, weaknesses, and structure my lessons accordingly. This helps me to monitor the studentsโ€™ progress and provided insight to their expectations. Whenever my students learn something new, I stress how much they have achieved so far, rather than pointing out how much more they need to learn. During my teaching experience I have observed that a confident learner progresses more quickly than a discouraged one. My number one goal, is your child's success. Let's aim for the stars!

About Dr. Suman

My name is Dr. Suman (pronounced Simone). I have my own Health Coaching practice at Medicinal Nutrition DR, LLC

I have a doctorate in nutrition (clinical/medical). I am also a certified health coach, weight management specialist, and my training was specialized in working with overweight and obese individuals from all walks of life.

I have been a health professional for ten plus years and I have been offering health education for about the same time. I am very passionate about health and wellness and feel deeply sad when I see individuals struggling to become healthy and therefore resorting to diet fads or worse, struggling in silence. I think that knowledge is power only when you use it! Therefore, I decided to use my clinical and medical knowledge, education, and certification's to coach other like minded individuals about healt

h and wellness.

We all need a coach or a guide who can allow us to thrive and shine while, helping us navigate the rough waters effortlessly. In these times, while it may be easy to "google" something and find answers you may want to hear, not all of these answers are authentic or individualized for your personal health needs. Having a coach, guide, a support system, and an accountability factor all bundled in one, now, I doubt google can do that for you:) I pride in being compassionate, empathetic, and patient- all the qualities you may need in a mentor and a health professional!

I hope I am able to connect with you and share my passion for health and wellness while, at the same time, educate you and empower your journey!

I am also trained as a life coach, weight management specialist, and a mindfulness/meditation instructor-educator. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions before you wish to get started.

Lastly, I am a certified tarot reader, if you are looking to understand how to read tarot cards and grow spiritually, please get in touch with me.

A friendly disclaimer: I am not offering any health or medical advice, diagnosis, or treatments through this platform. My goal is to strictly only provide health coaching and nutrition education. Please contact me if you are interested in learning and becoming educated about health and wellness. I also do not offer or provide any related certifications upon completion of your personal program with me, this is purely an educational platform.

Dr. Suman is an awesome person!! She is so patient and is so knowledgeable in her field. Her passion for helping people live their healthiest life is undeniable. I loved working with her and I am living a healthier life without having to restrict my eating, counting calories, or following fad diets. Please work with her if you need to make some serious changes to your life.

Dr. Suman is one of the most amazing people I have worked with. Her knowledge in the field is unmatched, but, I loved working with her because she is patient, kind, very compassionate, and will do all it takes to help her students. Please work with her if you are looking for someone to help you get off the diet cycle and learn to eat for your health. She does not stand for fads and will help you see results.
