About Tom
Hello everyone, I'm Tom.

I have always loved teaching people things that I enjoy, sharing my experience with others, and helping people realize their own potential.

I am a musician, a martial artist, and a general IT guru.

Music and martial arts runs in my family, and I was raised around them from a very young age.

As a child, I was always fascinated with computers, and had to know everything I could about them.

My teaching style is a bit unorthodox, focusing more on philosophy and personal introspection than traditional "memorize and practice" methods, and is very mind, body, and spirit oriented.

Feel free to ask me questions for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

I was stuck in a rut and unsure about how to improve my chess game. After a few lesson with Matt I feel a lot better about where I am at, and have been steadily improving over the last few weeks. Matt was able to figuring out why I was stuck, and what I needed to work on to get my chess abilities to the next level. Would highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to improve their game!

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.
