Sandra K.

My specialty is teaching tap as a musical instrument. For me, the movement serves the sound rather than a visual effect. No matter if you're a beginning, intermediate or advanced student, you will discover the potential of the human body to help internalize musical concepts such as phrasing, form, improvisation, and self-expression, as well as gain organic access to complex musical structures. Whether your focus is on building tap dance skills, seeking to connect body and mind in a profound and musical way, or are a musician who wants to become more connected and physically involved with the groove within - you are in the right place! The tap steps are merely tools to access your unique voice. My tap lessons combine technique, improvisation, and combinations with mindfulness, breathing, and body awareness exercises. Find the groove that is within you!

I have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.

Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

We've only had one lesson but Nicola is smart and great at explaining as she goes. I'm an adult and love her teaching style, and I could also see her being great with kids!

"I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach."

"Brad has been my daughter’s (age 13) improv teacher for a year. It has been such a great experience for her! Brad is patient, encouraging, and fun. His wit resonates so well with her and his example and prompting have not only helped her with improv, but also with how she responds and interacts with others in general. He communicates in a way that she understands and helps her to feel confident in expressing herself (no fear of repercussions or embarrassment) - easy-going and in a way that has helped her grow.

"I've been rapping for 15yrs...and when I met Prophet, God took my game to a whole new level., When it comes to stage performance, there is so much more to think about than just what am I going to where, and what songs will I peform. Prophet has helped me track my breathing and make sure I'm not too winded off stage when I'm finished with my set, he's helped me understand how to hold a microphone properly and consider how something sounds to the audience not just to me. He's also taught me about utilizing the monitors and speakers the house provides to my benefit and paying attention to the sound the stage gives off. These things, are rarely considered by performers and rappers, but have proven vital to how I perform onstage. Thus giving me the ability to minister properly off stage as well."
