About Jennifer

I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e

state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

I read previous reviews which assisted me in selecting Jen. After connecting with her I realized she had the perfect location (less than 10 mins from my house in Catonsville) and professional patience with my twin 14 yr old sons. They had a little experience before the lessons with Jen, but after only a few lessons, their piano/keyboard playing was much sharper than before. She has a beautiful voice and the boys always felt really positive after each lesson. They were more eager to practice at home to demonstrate the skills she taught them previously. Also, Jen hand writes lessons for the boys, which helped them better understand sheet music. She's a Gem. Well worth the investment!

About Anne

I am a mom of two littles and work from home making pattern and technical specification packages for fashion designers.

I teach sewing, pattern making and fashion design lessons from my home studio in Broomfield.

I have been sewing since I was 7 years old and while I sometimes use commercial sewing patterns I prefer to make my own, I always have.

I have a degree in Pattern Making, Fashion Design, and Product Development. Adding a lot of standard technique to my own methods.

In sewing, I can teach you anything from the simplest basics to how to sew stretch fabrics, and much more. There is no need to be afraid of any particular fabrics or machines, book a lesson and we'll go over whatever you need.

In Fashion Design I can teach you the basics of fashion drawing and show you how to translate those designs into patterns and

sewn garments.

Want to learn how to alter clothes to make them fit better? Or how to upcycle pretty much anything.

Need just one lesson? OK :)

My goal as a teacher is to help you achieve your goals. I know that we all learn at a different pace.

My first lesson went great! Anne showed me everything I needed to know to help me begin practicing on my own with confidence. She does have two small children who were well behaved, but if distractions are a problem, I would mention that before taking your first lesson. At the end of my two hour session I had sewn my first bag and now have something to show my friends and family! Thanks, Anne.

About Ryan

I've been playing and teaching the game of bridge for the past 26 years. I love this game, and I love introducing it to others so they can share in the joy of bridge. I've taught people from age 8 to age 88 and everywhere in between. My goal is to make the lessons fun because this is a game, and the only reason to play a game is to have fun.

About Terry

I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

The teacher was knowledgeable about all aspects of sewing and was able to tell me how to finish off one of my projects that I brought with. It was a jacket and skirt. I needed help mostly with the jacket and mainly understanding the finishing instructions for the jacket. I sewed some in the hour during the lesson and then Terry showed me on the instructions what to do at home. She then asked me to bring a new sewing project that we could start together when I come in two weeks. I would highly recommend Terry to any level of sewer wanting lessons. She is also a very kind lady as well.

Bgcheck Background Checked


About Kyle

I'm a class B (almost class A) player who has been playing chess seriously for just over a year, though I've been playing the game since I was a child. I regularly play in competitive over-the-board tournaments, as well as playing daily online. I have an International Master as a coach, so I am constantly learning myself and I understand what it's like to be a student of the game.
I can analyze student's games, identify weak areas of play, and develop a personalized routine to help you improve. Every day, I dedicate hours of studying to chess openings, tactics, chess history, endgames, and strategic concepts, and I am eager to teach this information to others.

Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player.

Had a nice online 1-hour lesson with Kyle, who helped me with some of my questions I had in certain position. Helped me realize which parts of the game I had to work on more.

Great instructor. Really knows his stuff and comes prepared to help you develop your skills in the most effective way possible. I had a great experience and learned a ton in just a one hour lesson.

About Michael

Playing pool since I was 15 and love the game.
There is nothing more pleasurable than to see yourself improve day after day.
To win that first tournament is a memory you will never forget.
You can play this game well into your senior years and you will learn something new every day. It is the best way to spend your spare time, I promise.

"My daughter had her first lesson yesterday and it was great! Mya Mya was very patient with her and also let her work at her own speed while learning the m
achine. She’s 9 and she wanted to go slow, then fast, then slow again. I’m glad I chose to use a one-on-one instructor because I feel like my daughter retained a lot more information than she would have in a group class. At the end of a pretty long lesson my daughter didn’t want to leave and asked to stay longer! We will definitely be going back for more lessons."
