Matt has a great background in music anchored in rock n roll with over thirty years of experience. He shows his knowledge with patience and step by step instruction. He has a firm knowledge base and an easy style for teaching. I would recomend Matt for any level of instruction from novice to experienced guitar playing.

Janis has been working with my daughter on multiple subjects, including Piano, reading, math, science, and ukulele since she was 4 years old. The impact that she has had on my child goes beyond just being a teacher - she has helped shape her personality and has instilled in her a love and enthusiasm for learning that is priceless.

Janis has been an amazing teacher and mentor to my children for the past 15 years. She was the kindest, and the most patient teacher with the greatest teaching method for math and English as a tutor to my son, who is currently studying for his MBA. And she was the most patient and flexible as well as detail oriented piano instructor for my younger daughter. Her unique teaching methods help her students learn and retain information and her kind smile and sense of humor make the kids want to continue their work and practice.

Daniel was a great instructor to learn with, he was very kind and likable as well as being a good teacher with a great understanding Spanish with an emphasis on spoken Spanish over academic Spanish. Daniel was a great teacher I would recommend to anyone.

· Life Coaching · Online
Leona has been my life coach for several sessions now and I could not more highly recommend her. Depending on what information she is given beforehand, she will research the situation of the particular student (what career field they are considering for example) and bring what she has learned to the session. She then will listen intently to the student to find out what they want and what is most important to them. After that she will make excellent recommendations designed to maximize the chance that the student will succeed. After having several sessions with her, I can confidently say that every piece of advice she gives leads to a positive outcome if followed. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly recommend her.

I have been learning so much from Leona. I wish I had of started with her when I first began my GMAT journey. She makes everything very easy and break things down. You can't go wrong picking her.

Excellent teacher who developed a personally focused lesson plan that fit my needs. The constant and prompt feedback was what I needed to pass the TOEFL. I highly recommend Leona.
