John is always on time. Very good with our son. He teaches the whole student about singing. He has helped our son to love singing out more than ever which has really helped our son's confidence. We highly recommend using John as a singing coach.

I have been hesitant to write a review for Tom in fear of his schedule getting too busy to fit us in! We love Tom, he has been teaching my son (12) for almost a year now. He is so patient, kind, and gentle but at the same time encouraging and pushes him in just the right way. His technique is solid and my son has made excellent progress with Tom's instruction. I highly recommend lessons with Tom, just don't take our spot. ;)

A little over a year ago, after a 6 year hiatus, I was looking to get back to playing tennis again. I found Tom on this website and he was able to reintroduce me to the basics and get me to a point where I feel confident enough to join a tennis league. I am more consistent, have better footwork, and am better than I ever was.

Tom is passionate about tennis and teaching. He is friendly, patient, and tailors the lessons to match the students learning style. He has a lot of experience teaching students with a wide variety of skill levels. Tom also has played the game at the highest level, so he is able to provide insight that other less experienced instructors do not have.

If you are considering tennis lessons, I highly recommend Tom.

Dr. Joseph Merkel improved my sound with some adjustments on my first lesson! He has such a profound understanding of how to work with one's individual instrument. I look forward to continuing lessons with Dr. Merkel and advancing my vocal abilities for my professional aspirations.

Dr. Merkel is an extremely good teacher. I'm an older, beginning student in oboe. The lessons fly by, and I never fail to learn something important. He's knowledgeable, personable, and well-organized. The best!!

Joshua B.

Seattle, WA

I grew up playing club tennis, played 4 years of varsity tennis in high school, was offered college scholarships to play in college, and was an tennis pro at a Swim and Tennis Club in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I understand body mechanics and have experience as an educator. These two attributes, as well as numerous friends who I've helped, make me believe that I can help anyone raise their game to the next level.

I'd like to write a quick testimonial about the tutor I found here on Takelessons. Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student.

Dell has made the hugest difference in my Son London's tennis skills. We have been practicing with Dell once a week for over 6 years and have enjoyed every lesson. i just wish we had met Dell earlier. London plays on a very competitive level for his age and it is a thrill to watch him in matches. Dell even got me to get off the couch and play. Truly a remarkable Tennis Coach and a wonderful person to have be a part of your family! I recommend Dell to everyone, all ages and all skill levels. Dell is the best!!!
