Keith is awesome. Keith has a lot of knowledge in the field of finance and economics. He has provided me with both academic and professional advice. Keith maintains a positive attitude during tutoring sessions and really is a pleasure to work with. Studying with Keith makes me not dread studying like all of times. I would highly recommend Keith if you are studying economics, finance, or accounting.

Keith was a great help to our sales staff. It was apparent that his ultimate desire was to help us succeed in our sales training efforts when he went out of his way to stay in touch with our management staff through phone calls and email. We would recommend Keith because he is a stand-up guy and truly cares about those seeking his expertise. He will also tell you if he is not able to help in an area, his integrity is top of the line.

My son had the pleasure of taking guitar lessons for 3 years from Ippolito. His passion for music and teaching style was very inspiring, as well as, his patience and motivating demeanor kept my son interested and wanting to improve his musicianship. Always encouraging, with guided interaction, he kept my son on task during lessons. He was very professional and punctual in all our interactions. Above all, he was appreciative and accommodating to my son's style of music without compromising the basic core instruction for guitar. His goal, as an instructor, was to instill a lifelong passion and appreciation for music. I would highly recommend Ippolito as a guitar teacher. It was a pleasure to work with him.

Erwin C.

Washington, DC

I have been practicing martial arts and Karate since 2004 at the Aibukan Dojo, USA in San Diego, and have the rank of first degree black belt. I can teach you Goju Ryu Karate and basic, practical self-defense skills.

You will learn a basic warm-up / stretch, basic strikes and blocks, and up to 9 different Goju Ryu katas.

I think I would be perfect for someone thinking about joining a martial arts school, but still unsure. Or for someone who would like a budget friendly option.

I am patient, flexible, and affordable. I also have years of experience in the classroom. You are more than welcome to bring a friend, which can help save you on cost.

Erwin is very patient. He has a marvelous sense of humor and does not expect everything to be learned in the first lesson. I really enjoyed his teaching style, being a retired teacher myself. I will look forward to our next lesson.

Noora was my coach in self-defense. She helped me master techniques that made me confident in the level of martial arts. Really friendly, caring and passionate about her teaching. I really liked her positive attitude and how knowledgeable she was!

Noora was an excellent tutor! Very friendly, kind and smart. She worked with my seven-year-old son on the basics of math, reading and writing. She came to sessions very prepared and brought something new to each every time. I definitely saw improvement in my son's learning.

I have 13+ years of martial arts experience, and was an assistant instructor at my dojo back home. I was a member of the Demo team, and was one of the best students in my class! The first few lessons would be basic foundations, stances, strikes, the works. Strength and flexibility training will also be included. If that sounds boring just remember that is only the beginning! We will quickly move onto forms and self defense techniques and eventually weapons! Ive done this almost my whole life, so I know the formula. and there are endless amounts of things I would love to teach you!
