Hi My name is Jorge, my friends call me Harry I have been teaching Privately now for about 10yrs ,I always had my teaching area right outside my home (Dojo) in the Martial Arts world. What i teach compared to Music, Voice, etc which i also love,is a little different. If you at one time ,thought what you may do ,if involved in a confrontation be it verbally or Physical. ,i know i can help you out with that. My approach is very simple and practical. If u want and need Competitive, and advance knowledge I assure we can work and achieve that also. Looking forward to working with my next student
!! and reaching your Goal. (NO UNIFORM REQUIRED)

Sensei knows a lot about what he's teaching. His lessons are very well prepared. He won't let you continue unless you have correctly performed your moves. If you see him in action you will understand exactly what I'm talking about. I have been doing MMA for awhile and have had many different instructors. He is by far one of the best. He cares if you are satisfied with what you have learned by the end of his lesson.

Sensei Jorge provided me the techniques/moves needed to bring my Jiu Jitsu to the next level. Actually, he teaches a Combat Judo that provides the detailed information needed to perform all three martial arts. His dedication and knowledge to assist in the learning is impeccable! I truly miss his classes! Anyone interested in learning from a professional needs to contact him for his class schedule!

My passion is and always has been sharing my the disciplines I've committed myself to with people.

Commitment to these disciplines have taught me the key skills that have helped me succeed and make it to this point in my life: focus, dedication, and a thirst for learning. These three qualities trump any natural talent anyone claims to have.
A link to a single release with my former band, DC Psychadelic/Folk group Color in Numbers:
Pedram is a fantastic guitar teacher and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their playing and their understanding of music.
Pedram's lessons combine practical, concrete guitar-playing advice with more advanced instruction on music theory. Together, these have made me a much stronger performer. He's also a really friendly and fun guy. I think he's a great teacher for beginners, intermediates, and experienced players alike.
Sarah March 3, 2016
Pedram is a fantastic and inspiring teacher. His easy way of explaining chord structures gives me hope that I will not just be able to play along with tabs, but also improvise on my own very soon. I always feel energized and confident after an hour with Pedram, and the training exercises he gives me to practice are really challenging, but skill-building as well.
Definitely hire Pedram if you want to learn guitar like a master!
Hi, there! My name is Megan and I can't wait to meet you! I've just started teaching private lessons this year, but have previously been a coach, substitute teacher, and in my day to day job I work with and advise college students. I love helping my students see the big picture, break down the necessary steps that will lead them towards success, and help them understand things in a way that makes sense to them.
I went to the College of Wooster (OH) and earned a degree in History in 2008. I also attended George Washington University and earned a masters in Education & Human Development (conc
entration in Higher Education Administration) in 2014.
I'm personable, upbeat, and even a little silly at times. My teaching style is encouraging, communicative, and fun. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I usually do everything I can to help my 3rd grade daughter with her school work. However, I had a pretty big deadline for work coming up, and didn't have the time to devote to help my daughter study for her test on ancient Greece (especially as she kept juxtaposing it with the Roman Empire!) that I would've liked. Enter Megan.
Coordinating the specifics, Megan was super communicative and was punctual, arriving on time for our appointment. My daughter is not always the best at staying engaged for a long period of time, but Megan did a great job of keeping her interested and finding ways to help my daughter retain the information. They ended up making a digital comic book about Greece using Lego characters and a shoe box. I have never seen my daughter so excited about learning. I think I might have to have work deadlines more often!

I recently participated in a service trip to New York City where Megan served as our staff learning partner. She did a wonderful job of guiding us during the service activities and facilitating meaningful reflections following our work. Whenever we spoke with leaders of the organizations we volunteered at, Megan asked questions that furthered our knowledge of the organization and what they do. She was completely engaged in every aspect of the trip, and she made herself available to talk with us about anything we wanted to discuss. She also extended this invitation beyond the trip, and assured us that she would remain available should we ever wish to reach out to her on a professional or personal level. Furthermore, she did an incredible job of guiding our group of 14 through the complicated NYC subway system! Megan is incredibly responsible, mature, and knowledgeable, and I am very grateful to have spent my spring break getting to know her!

Megan was a joy to work with. She came to our home to assist my son who was struggling in his AP English class. Not only did she help him gain a better grasp on the literature (The Once and Future King and some Shakespeare), she worked patiently with him to hone his writing skills and improve upon his study skills. The study and organizational tips Megan offered him have helped him improve in other classes. She was punctual and responsive and my son really enjoyed working with her - it was also a great perk that Megan offered lacrosse-filled study breaks.
I have always been active. I was a baseball athlete in school, and have been involved with various fitness and sports activities during my adult years. I have been a Personal Trainer, and swimming instructor for over 5 years. I really enjoy helping people stay fit and in good health, and helping kids learn to swim and be safe in water is fun and makes me feel great.

My experience training with Don is a five star review! Dons positivity and attitude towards health and fitness carries over to all aspects of the work out with him. Don is very knowledgable! When working out with Don you are more than just a client, you are an athlete and a friend. Definitely don't miss a chance to workout with him!
Thanks Don !

We have had a wonderful experience with Ms. Tara. The kids enjoy her class and love drawing. Thanks for sharing your skills, Ms. Tara.

Tara was wonderful when working with my boys. She was always on time, never cancelled and was always smiling. She was gentle and guided them through each project. I would highly recommend Tara to anyone who wanted a personal, quality lesson in art.
