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.

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."

I have helped my friends, family, fellow students, and new students with Algebra since the day I started taking it and falling in love with it.

I have always been patient with the art of algebra and love helping my students see if from a perspective that makes the most sense for them to understand and learn.

I love helping my students feel proud and successful at the end of lessons. To top it off, I have a bearded dragon I named Algebra, because that's how much I love it.

About kala

I teach basic - advanced color theory through in a hands on class tailored to your skill level, style and subject matter 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

Kelli is great with our son - he always looks forward to his lessons. She is a pleasure to work with.
KimberlyB
Awesome teacher for our child and then teen. Kelli also became a trusted adult friend and mentor. Our daughter had been frustrated by lessons before we found Kelli who helped our daughter explore music joyfully and with discipline and become a technically proficient musician who composes and performs with confidence. She also taught her singing and composition. Irene released her 3rd album of original songs at the age of 21!
Melissa
Kelli has been amazing with my quiet, shy teen. She connected with him immediately, pushes him just the right amount to keep him learning and growing as a musician, but never so much that she pushes him away. She is very gentle and kind and encouraging. I love that she always does a little freestyle with him at the end of every lesson and his learning is not exclusively from books. On top of being a great teacher, she is a lovely human.

Collins had his first cello lesson with Christien today. He love it! Christien is super patient and very very professional. She corrected Collins' posture and the way to hold the bow. Christine gave very clear instruction, and made the lesson lot of fun.

"Arlys was absolutely wonderful. Not only did she help with with speech delivery, tone, speed, pitch, etc but she took time out to get to know me personally to get an idea of my personal goals as a public speaker.

She took my information and helped me formulate a plan according to my needs. She took my old presentation and helped me to change it to make it far more powerful and compelling. My presentation went from mediocre at best, to a solid well accepted presentation. In fact, when my presentation was done, I had two separate decision makers ask me to present with their companies."

He really went above and beyond in helping me to pass my essay exam. Out of all the help, I enlisted, he was the only one that was instrumental in improving my writing which resulted in my passing the exam

"Alexandra is professional, responsible, reliable and friendly. She is very patient with students and their parents. Only a few months with her helping, my child's writing skills went from a 3- to a 4+, which increased his self-confidence a lot! She usually supplies a variety of teaching materials which attract kids very well. She uses her expert skills to help students express their feelings in thinking and writing.
