We will produce hand built jewelry (no casting or smelting) in a hands on class tailored to your skill level and style preference.
For the first class I would provide materials and then give you recommendations on materials that you could purchase.

About Teresita

ART: I love making art accessible to everyone. I am passionate about helping people get in touch with the artist that lives within them. Many people think they're "not good at art" but my philosophy is that you can be good at art as long as it makes you feel something. If you enjoy it, that's good

Terri has been a great teacher with my children. She elicits cooperation without being authoritarian. My kids are always asking when class is and are super excited when she rings our doorbell. I can't imagine a better endorsement
Amber
Having a great time learning watercolor from Teresita! She's very clear with her instructions and super patient with me. She incorporates art theory into every class combined with an enjoyable exercise/piece.

Karen is a patient instructor. Has a relaxed home atmosphere. Made good use of the lesson time. Had appropriate practice outlined between lessons. I would recommend her.

My daughter 7yrs took lessons from Karen for 8 months. She was so patient and kind. My girl loved her and her teaching style.
I would have given 5 stars if she had got a real piano, not an electronic one.
Maria L.
Karen is not only a gifted teacher but an excellent listener and has an extremely easy going personality. This was my third lesson and I already "feel the love."

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.
Sevval N.
She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.
Youjia S.
My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Bruno B.

I will help you develop a strategy that works for you. No made pre flop ranges. Not trying to impose you the way I play the game. Poker is a very complex game and understanding your context is very important to build a profitable and comfortable strategy for you. The initial step of my program is to identify your current level and limitations, including agressiveness, bankroll, objectives and slowly introducing concepts that will change your game (Forever) without making you risk more than you should.
Ps.: I am specialized in Live cash games.

About Bruno

Hello my name is Bruno and I simply LOVE POKER. I am a semi pro player (I play part time) but every time I play I want to crush the tables. It was not always like that and before working hard on my game I was a big loser so I know exactly what does it take to fine tune your game and turn you into

She also has a nice folder with everything you you cover in the lesson so you can remember when you get home. Definitely going back."
