About Essence P.

I love teaching and being the reason students learn new materials and information and stick with it. I have a passion in helping people learn and reaching their goals. I’m very easy to get along with, outgoing, loyal, fun and dedicated in everything that I do. You will not only learn GREAT information with me, but you will also be doing hands on activities and having fun while doing it. My goal is to help you reach your goal and learn every material that I teach you. As long as your willing to learn and willing to do the best you can, then I will go above and beyond in helping you. Feel free to ask me any questions or concerns you have. I am willing to work with you as long as you show me that you are wanting to learn.

My experience with the courses I teach on TakeLessons:

Cooking: I have been cooking for 12 years! I have completed a culinary course and am certified! I can teach you anything from soul food to seafood and anything you can think of and want to learn how to cook! My favorite recipes are my famous fried chicken, Olive Garden copy cat chicken alfredo, my cajun creamy cheese grits and shrimp , my lemon glazed pound cake and my spicy fried swai fish! I love cooking and would enjoy teaching you different recipes!

Dance: I have been dancing for 14 years! I started off as a little girl in dance school myself, to volunteering at the dance school to now being a teacher on Monday-Wednesday nights. I do choreographing and teach basic dance skills you will need. I teach lyrical, ballet, jazz and hip-hop! I also do majorette dancing

Hair braiding: I have been braiding hair for 7 years and am a licensed hair braider in Florida. I will teach you the basic in starting to braid for beginners and if you are advanced, ready to take the next step then we will go to some more advanced styles like rope twist, havanna twist and sew ins. If you want to take the next step and braiding is your passion we will also do prep for the hair braiding certification in your state and you can become a certified hair braider in your state (if your state has a requirement for it).

Hair styling: This goes back up to the hair braiding. I have been doing hair for 7 years and am certified in hair braiding. I do styles like braids, sew ins, havanna twist, silk presses, kids styles, pony tails, learning how to put a wig on and make it look natural etc. We will also learn hair care and how to manage and care for your hair and others! If you want to become a certified hair braider I will also walk you in the steps in doing that as well. We will be doing hands on training online!

Life coach: As your life coach I will be there for you, motivating you and making sure you are on the right track. I will send you daily encouragements and give you a goal for every month to work on. If you have something you want to work on we will work on that and I promise that you will feel much better with me being on your team cheering you on!

Make Up: I have been doing make up for 4 years and I love it! I am a certified make up artist and If you have a passion for make up we will even do prep for you becoming a certified make up artist! We will be doing hands on training online!

The best Mac and cheese I have ever made was taught by Ms. Essence. I love how fun and how much she taught me about food and how to clean foods correctly. All the recipes I learned from here I used for Thanksgiving this year it was the best

I did not know how to cook. I cook could basic foods but not the foods that look satisfyingly amazing! I wanted to find someone that could teach me how to cook, the right way, she is young but she is very knowledgeable and knows what she is doing if I could I would take the lessons again but she moved away now I see she does online classes I would definitely sign up if I had the chance

Essence taught me how to box braid, scalp braid, and also how to French braid. I have daughter and didn’t know how to do hair now I can do their hair and know how to care for their hair and mine!

Essence was the best makeup teacher ever! She helped me out a lot because I did not know what I was doing when it came to make up and how to apply it. I found her on Instagram and I started taking lessons with her and she gave me the most reasonable price! Now I can do makeup like a pro! I even do others makeup.
