About Laurie
Hello! I am a skilled teacher with a passion for helping others learn and excel! I hold my bachelor's degrees in music education and vocal performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I completed my master's degree in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. I have been teaching over 15 years. I tailor instruction to your need. I can help you become a stronger musician, be ready for performances and auditions, prepare for special occasions, competitions, recitals, concerts and more!

I am also very interested in nutrition and cooking. I have thus studied these areas and love to share this knowledge with others. I can help you with healthy eating, meal planning and understanding nutrients to maximize your nutrition. Cooking is endless....I can show you many, many types. Just ask!

Contact me with any qu
estions or for information. I currently have good openings on Tuesdays from 6:00-6:30PM and Thursdays 5:30-6:30PM. If you are interested in cooking, please send me a message. I am sometimes able to accommodate cooking lessons on Sundays given that they take longer. Thank you!

About Renata
I teach a variety of subjects ranging from oil, acrylic watercolor, drawing to cooking and baking even sourdough bread baking.

I have been teaching painting for over 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels.

I also teach cooking from scratch with the best ingredients. Be it Asian, Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern cuisine; I teach them all and more. I even teach to bake bread with my own home-grown sourdough starter. So, please join me fo
r a fantastic session and learn some basics or other skills that only chefs know. Once we have cooked a delicious meal, we sit together and enjoy it over a glass of wine or whatever you like. As an option you may take home the remaining portions, usually enough for 3-5 days. But you don't have to. You only pay for the food you eat which is a fraction of a restaurant meal and yet much better.

Renata was simply amazing
She made a wonderful meal for us, all while sharing some great cooking tips and stories.
The Salmon was marinated/seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Rice, Kale Salad, and Fresh Bruschetta with French Bread were such a hit, everyone had clean plates by the end of the demo.
Renata came with everything that she needed to prepare the food and even set up/cleaned up everything with no interruption to the rest of our office.
The ones who didn’t participate couldn’t even tell what she had prepared, saying that they didn’t smell any after smell.
Once they learned that we ate Fish/Salmon… Complete Shock.. hehe
Renata is an amazing teacher who is very well versed in culinary arts, she knows many tips and tricks for creating wonderful, flavorful meals.. Thank you for everything, Renata!

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Taking weekly lessons at the high-intermediate level - Tatiana is a fantastic teacher - very good explanations of grammatical concepts and nuances of vocabulary/language - I've noticed great progress in my Russian since starting a few months ago.

About Dave
I owned my own deli and drop-off catering business for years. I have worked in high end Country Clubs, private schools and large corporations like Marriott and Sodexo. My food philosophy is food tastes best in its natural state and healthy food can be delicious. I am lucky to be able to express my artistic side in the creation of food and I am positive people can learn to eat well, happily. I love all the different classes and events I am able to create and teach as well as the food we get to enjoy doing so! It's so much fun to meet new people every day and watch them learn!

The class was a blast. My wife and I gave each other a gift to take a cooking class from Dave Hammer. The lessons weren't too complicated and even an old guy like me was able to do it. A great date night for any couple. Highly recommended.

Andrea is a patient, and very good Italian language teacher. He is teaching my 6 year old and keeps the lesson very engaging and easy to follow. She learned a lot in just 30 minutes and had fun doing so. I highly recommend him for children and adults.

Andrea is a fantastic teacher. I came to the bass with some music background, and Andrea met me right where I needed him to meet me. His teaching methods are clear, concise, and all-encompassing. We focus on music theory, technique, and playing each lesson, and Andrea has greatly expanded my musical vocabulary and repertoire. I'm amazed at my progress so far, and I look forward to getting even better with Andrea's tutelage!

Andrea is absolutely fantastic! We love him!

We are a group of beginners, ages 25-65, and he has been extremely patient with all of us. He helps us improve our language skills in a fun, encouraging way. We look forward to continuing our lessons with him, and improve our Italian!

In Avanti!

About Keith
My name is Keith, I'm 24, and I'm a self-taught artist of many fields. Currently working part time with a school that teaches STEM Interests, Electives, Engineering and Creative classes to kids and adults alike.

I am hugely creative and technical individual. In my spare time I employ everything I teach for fun, whether it be writing, or cosplaying. (You know those people you see walking around those big nerd conventions every year with the cool costumes? Comic-Con and Anime Expo? I'm one of those guys!)

People have told me I'm very easy to talk to, approachable, and fun. Very positive, very outgoing and confident. I have a big belief in everyones potential. Talent is a pursued interest. Anything you want to learn, you absolutely can. All you have to do is open your mind to it, and practice

I'm very passionate about my teachings
, and when we talk, you'll hear it. I am enthralled with the world, and how things work. Everything is so cool and so exciting, there's nothing not to love. Getting to share that everyday would be a joy in and of itself.

Keith taught me how to make the most fantastic advertising flyer for my music business! The graphic is so eye catching! Learning how to layer all the elements and see how they come together to produce the desired effects was very satisfying.

Keith and I were collaborative writing partners for approximately four and a half months and every conversation was an absolute delight. I learned so much useful material about clarification of language, characterization and development. Keith is not only patient, but in depth. He takes time to fully explain concepts and is clearly passionate about everything he says and does. He's a rare creative mind in a world of two-dimensional thinkers and I feel extremely humbled that he gives such genuine support and inspiration every time we speak. Keith is a critical thinker who always takes the time to process your writing before giving feedback and his feedback is always fair and suggests different options to help my improvement. He is an all-around amazing collaborator and has limitless writing talent of his own. Anybody would be very lucky to have his guiding assistance.
