I couldn't have asked for a nicer teacher. The first 15 minutes Shannon helped me get my Skype working right when I thought it was. I liked the patience she had trying to figure out my problem with Skype so I'm sure she will be the same after hearing more of the off tune sax I have :). Thanks Shannon!

Although it's still early in the teaching schedule with Jason, my first lesson was great. Jason made me feel relaxed even though I was nervous, and the materials that he sent me to practice on bass reinforced the teaching session I had with him

I completed eight lessons with Jason and was very satisfied with the musical lessons received. I learned much about the piano, chords, patterns, and theory. On the eighth lesson I received a guitar tutorial and was very impressed with his playing and teaching. I highly recommend Jason as an instructor for the musical instruments that he teaches.

Every one of us have had to run at some point of time – be it as a punishment for coming late to school, a way to reach a train that you can’t afford to miss or simply a part of competing in a sport. While most of us know it is healthy, not many people do it on a daily basis. Probably, if they knew about its various health benefits they’ll be more encouraged to include it in their lifestyles.
Here are some of the top reasons why running is healthy for you.
Great for your heart...Great for your lungs...Helps you lose weight...Slows down aging....Reduces depression...Aids digestion.... Good for your bones....Helps you sleep and Makes you happy

I was very excited to be taking lessons, I played when I was a little girl, & my husband knew this & bought me a violin for Christmas so I could play again... but I was nervous if I would be able to learn since I'm not young! Mr Lin is a great teacher, he is very patient, & made me feel very comfortable... and I'm teachable! Yeah! I did good... I'm going to keep practicing, and can't wait for my next lesson!

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.

As a life long athlete running has always been a part of my life. During high school I participated in soccer, cross country running, and cross country skiing (a varsity sport in Minnesota). Additionally, I played DIII lacrosse during college. All of these experiences have taught me what it takes to train for, compete in, and even enjoy the sport of running!

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.
