If you are looking for someone to help you get a freash START. Tamika is the one who will get the job done. I hate shopping and I suffered from separation disorder when it came too my clothes.( Which over had for over 20yrs). I'm also very cheap. I had a budget n an idea about change but no direction. TAMIKA helped me to figure out why I couldn't get rid of things, how to prepare for new things, how too get results within your budget. She was very patient with me. Even though I had too practically try on all my clothes n think of reasons too keep them. One thing people are shy about is asking questions, and how people see them. Welcome to the No Judgement zone. I was very comfortable working with Tamika. I've gained not only a new look ,but I gained a sense of self love n worth.

It was a great working together with Tamika on my baby shower...She had wonderful creative ideas. I enjoyed her organization skills when we both went shopping...I really appreciate how passionate she was about getting tasks done...it was so helpful having her around...it was a lot smoother....

This was my first time modeling in a show, and my overall experience was great. Tamika provided great feedback regarding walking, using modeling stance, posing, and how to have fun and interact with the audience. She chose awesome people to walk for her in the show, and we all got along really well. Tamika communicated professionally and respectfully to her models. She also provided all of the clothing for the show which was great because I did not have to come out of pocket to get additional clothing. I would suggest that she get an assistant to help her on the day of the show.

My 16-year old daughter literally screamed when she got in the car after her first lesson. “Dad, Elizabeth is so cool…and such a good singer…and she asked me all the questions about singing that I’ve always wanted to be asked…” and on and on.
Needless to say, we’re very pleased so far.

I look forward to getting together with Liz every week! Highly Recommend!!

Liz is an amazing vocal coach and has a way of putting things in terms you can understand. She is patient, encouraging but also not afraid to be honest with you when needed. She has been instrumental in my success as a singer and I could not recommend her more highly!

I took 8 years of Spanish classes and lived in Ecuador where I used Spanish on a daily basis.

My teaching philosophy is to help students engage in learning. I find that a personal connection to new information makes it more engaging and meaningful, and students remember it better too. It's also more fun.

That being said, if learning is more readily achieved for your student through other methods, we will do whatever works best. I cater to results, because my ultimate goal is the student's success.

About Joshua

I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education. Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learn

It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too. Highly recommended to everyone!!!!

Clare could not be more supportive, patient, and willing to facilitate changes to schedules. If you are new to this instrument, or already proficient, you will have a nice experience under her instruction. I am an adult student, and I have unique challenges. She has accommodated me in a way that has motivated me to write this review without her asking me. That should tell you something.
Layla
Clare is not only a wonderful oboist but a wonderful oboe teacher. She takes the time to put technique first which made a huge difference in my playing. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher!
Todd
Clare is a wonderful oboist who plays with emotion and that same energy transfers into her teaching.

I don’t actually teach piano lessons… I teach fully integrated musicianship and community building that involves the piano. I teach a full curriculum that blends not just good playing, but music theory (how music is constructed), history, performance skills, and positive social interaction. Why just “take piano lessons” when you can meet new friends while performing in three recitals per year and maybe even in regional music festivals and honor camps? Why just play simple melodies when you can learn the skills that enable you to take on college-level literature like a boss?

Why settle for ORDINARY when you can be UTTERLY EXTRAORDINARY!!

Dr. Kennedy (Amy) was so phenomenal to work with. I felt so enriched by our conversations and one-on-one work. She encouraged me to dig deeper and push past the surface when analyzing works, an important skill I use every day as a theorist. I always left feeling like I had a good grasp on the content, but even more important I left feeling valued as an academic and human. Highly highly recommend her services!

"Miss Ashley is a breath of fresh Dance Education/Instruction air. She's energetic, fun and timely. She gets to the point. My daughter is thoroughly taken with her dance education approach and minute movement dissection and correction. We are coming out of Saudi, where dance is shunned and every camp Dance instructor is a volunteer parent with time on their hands, and into refresher Tap lessons with Miss Ashley. It's like night and day, at the very least. LOL! THANK YOU for your help in filling in her egregious Tap gaps while we are on Covid Evacuation to the US. We look forward to exploring other genre lessons with you in time, where possible. Any student would be in excellent hands with you."

"My daughter's acting class with Mia was absolutely wonderful! She was very nervous going in because it was her first time trying out acting but she was immediately set at ease by Mia's warm and friendly personality. Mia also took the time to get to know my daughter and find out what her interests and goals were. Mia's enthusiasm for acting really inspired her and she is very excited about her upcoming classes."
