Tamika is such a great instructor. She helped me break out of my comfort zone and worked with me to schedule lessons around my work schedule. I only got to be her student for a short period of time because school started back up, however, I would DEFINITELY recommend her to anyone who is interested in taking lessons with her. She will bring out the actress/actor in you you never knew was there!

About Daniel
Hello, my name is Dan, and it would be a great joy to share with you much of what makes me happy and which can enrich your life, too!

Would you like to learn how to create beautiful images? Learn from the 2008 Grand Prize winner at the Hocking Hills Shoot-the-Hills juried Photography Contest and have much fun refining and organizing your own work in Photoshop and Lightroom

Have you ever wanted to play that tune? You can do that and much more!

Have you ever wanted to know what's _really_ said in that foreign tongue part of a movie or opera? Have fun with languages while spared the school trauma, especially Italian and French, as we watch movies, read the best literature of these cultures and - only if you want - listen to music and enjoy it like the native speakers.

Any subject becomes a joy and an adventure!

I knew a bit of french going in and needed to practice listening skills and conversation. It was a lot of work, I have far to go in being comfortably conversational, but this was the jumpstart I needed to know what I needed to do going forward. Thanks Daniel!

After my first lesson I already feel more confident that I will be able to communicate some in Italian while on vacation in Italy. Daniel is an excellent teacher who is very knowledgeable in many languages. He made me feel comfortable right away.
He has a plethora of experiences from living and working abroad. He brought simple techniques/strategies that helped me understand grammar and pronunciation.
I have homework, can't wait for my next lesson. Ciao

Kyle is a great teacher. My grandson Franklin has trouble with paying attention, but Kyle was great when it comes to keeping him focused and interested. He has been with Kyle for close to a year now, and even though he is only 8 years old, he has learned a lot! I would highly recommend taking lessons with Kyle. He makes both grandparents and students happy and, my grandson looks forward to lessons every week with him.

My first time taking lessons online. We introduced ourselves, He wanted to know where I was musically and what my goals were. This is a very important feature because I will get more out of the class. He also has a warm and inviting sense of humor which helped me to feel comfortable in my first online lesson. Looking forward to the rest to see how far he will take me.(I have a feeling I will be impressed.

My daughter has been taking voice lessons from Junbo for 1 year now. He is very good at encouraging my daughter to develop her breathing and we've seen a huge improvement in her singing ability because of that! He is also very concerned about music selection and whether or not my daughter likes the music she is singing, but also steering her towards the kinds of songs that work best for her voice.

About David
Hi! I am a student at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, where I just finished a Bachelor of Music degree in Cello Performance. In the fall I will stay here to begin a Master of Music degree. I am primarily trained in classical music, but have ventured out into different genres and styles and can help you meet your musical goals. I believe a strong foundation and technical ability is important in playing any genre of music, so lessons should normally be formed around cellistic development. I teach all levels and would love to help you explore learning an instrument.

I also teach German. I began learning German as a child, and after several years moved to Germany for a time with my family. There I was enrolled in the school system and learned to speak the language at a near-native level. I strongly believe that
anyone can learn a language, and regardless of what your goals are, I would love to help you in this process!

About Cynthia Coco
Good greetings!

I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and leading workshops. Currently, I am enjoying managing my own small business while teaching students part time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work abroad, teaching English, Spanish, photography, and textile design. After a couple years of traveling throughout South America and Europe, I've decided to plop down in Asheville, NC, where I would love to continue teaching.

I am a clothing designer and botanical dyer by trade and also have experience in fine art, performance art, dance, and expressive arts therapy. These are also mediums I would be happy to share.

Learning should be a fun process, so I'm always excited work within each student's interest.
