I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

Knitting is a wonderful skill! From the practical -- such as scarves, sweaters, or socks -- to the artistic, learning to knit gives you a hobby that reduces stress, gives the ability to make your own gifts, and even earn a little pocket money! I have been knitting for over 20 years and selling my knitted creations for about 10 years. I can get you started with knitting!

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.

Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

Hula hooping is a magical form of movement that is as much fun to learn as it is to watch. It is a great work out and stress relief. I have been studying hoop dance for 6 years and it is by far my favorite thing to do. I love to teach and guide others on their hoop journeys. My students experience immediate results and will build a good platform on which to build their own personal hoop flow.

About Morgan

My name is Morgan. I am a hula hoop dance performer and instructor for Spin Happy Hoop Dance in Cincinnati. I have been hula hooping since 2009 and take pleasure in sharing my art with others! I specialize in teaching both children and adults hula hoop dance. I have a ton of knowledge to share, so

I Just want to thank Daria one more time to take ample time to offer me a tarot reading. As most of us know that, the answer that we seek, we already have the innate ability to get it, for part of us already knows the right answer.
I am grateful to Daria because she talked with me throughout the whole process with such great care and got me to the root of my situation.

It was a positive vibrant and productive session.
I wish her a very happy and healthy spiritual journey! πŸ™
Barbora S.
Daria read tarot cards for me the other day as I've asked her a question whether me applying in a new career field was a good idea? I've finished college in 2018 and couldn't find employment for over a year, then I finished a qualification course for teacher assistants and soon after I was given my first stable employment (been freelancing before). Full of optimism but with a grain of doubt I asked the stars/cards/higher power whether me choosing this career was a good move. Daria was able to confirm my own observations plus she added wise words of her own.

The reading doesn't give you a clear yes/no answer but if you've done a fair bit of introspection beforehand, the cards' advice may calm you down or offer you a new perspective you haven't considered before.
Kate K.
Daria gave me an online tarot reading about a month ago, and I came away with an experience that was enlightening and empowering. What I found unique about her approach as a psychic is that she combined her skilled intuition with practical advice that I could actually use to improve my life and find a measure of calm. She begins her sessions either with a specific question her client has in mind (whether it's related to relationships, family, career, aspirations, spiritual life, etc.), and if you do not come to her with a specific question, she is more than willing to do a general reading for you. (In my case, I sought advice related to my anxiety issues and their impact on my relationship with my fiancé, and over the past several weeks, things have really improved! So thank you!) If you are looking for someone who can help you see your circumstances more clearly and put you in touch with a spiritual sensibility, then Daria is someone to go see. She is not one of those charlatan psychics who will charge you excessively and then cloud your mind with bizarre, hazy predictions. She's an open-minded person and a great listener, and she's there to give you the tools to find joy and meaning.

"I have been consulting Dr. Ainslie Faust for online tutoring in the subject of astrology for the past two years. I won't see anybody else for my lessons.

She makes learning astrology easier because she breaks the subject matter down into simpler terms. She makes learning astrology fun because she is a brilliant storyteller.

I maintain my own astrology website, but I continue to educate myself about Astrology. When I need another lesson, I contact Dr. Faust. And I refer all of my friends to her as well.

She would be a tremendous asset to any organization."
