Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Very good instructor, I have had two lessons so far with Lawrence. The first lesson he introduced me to the type of software he uses, he referred me to certain websites I should check out, like chessgames.com where we analyzed some master games in the opening that I play and an overview of what we would cover in lessons. My second lessons we worked on some tactics and some positions because I wanted to focus on more of my middle game. And he also helped prepare me for an upcoming tournament I am playing in by going over my openings. His explanations are clear, and he provides many additional resources to explore and study.

Lawrence is just awesome .. I am doing so much better than I ever dreamt I could. I a so happy to have found him! Thank you Lawrence

I have taught fashion sewing in the NYC garment district for 11 years. Students ranged from teens to adults, aspiring designers, those interested in better-fitted clothes or in saving money with simple alterations. The method we use is very simple working on basic projects to increased skills as projects progress. I love sewing because it’s therapeutic and rewarding. Getting a compliment on something I’ve made is rewarding especially when followed with, “Thank you. I made it.” Sewing truly is something you can control when the world feels out of control.

When I teach classes it is so important to me that everyone completes a project no matter what. Learning a new skill takes requires willingness, a great teacher with patience and a cheerleader.

I'm a Home Economics teacher with 30 years crochet experience. I have skills and strong foundation in handicrafts and specialize in fundamentals of crochet. I typically use inspirational ideas around me and modify them according to my students' needs. I structure my lessons in a way the students will learn what they want to learn without feeling bored.

I'm available for eager students of all ages and experience levels. I would love to work with you and help you learn to master the basics of this needlework. I will also help you build a crochet portfolio that you can use any time as a quick reference guide (and inspiration as well) so you can comfortably make your very own DIY crochet projects!

Who doesn't want to learn how to make their own jewelry design with beads? I'm one of those who created an entire studio of beads supplies, learned everything that I know, and continue to experience with new opportunities. I make my own earrings and bracelets which are my first attempts that brought me to where I am. Now my portfolio extended to identifiers for wine glasses, necklaces, home decorations, shiny and colorful chains for prescription glasses.

My last creations just in time for Halloween are spiders which are very easy to make. The advantage is that any color and size of beads can make a creature of your imagination.

Tools required are minimal and the list for a certain project will be sent ahead of the class so you can work hands on along with me.

Note: a magnifying light is always a great asset to avoid straining the eyes and seeing close-up details.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

My father truly enjoys his conversations about the Romanian language and culture. Thank you, Isabela. You’re the best!

I am finishing my first set of lessons with Isabela. I can tell a big difference in how I am able to hear the language. Already, words pop into my head in French. I am pleased with how much I have learned already!

I have taken 7 lessons with Isabela. I can tell that my confidence is increasing and I am remembering more and more in French. I like how she includes written, verbal, and auditory (like YouTube) in our lessions.

Sam is very professional, super patient and uses exceptional effective teaching methods. He’s the best chess teacher we have found in south Florida, after years of changing teachers! Thank you Sam!"

"My experience as working along with Sid as his Chess Aide at various school locations; is he has excellent classroom management skills which in turn the students grasp the lessons more quickly. Also, the students are more engaged in the lessons as well. He is aware of making sure all students understand how each piece moves and knows what to do at the end of each lesson before they play a game. He praises each student on their ability and knowledge of chess and helpful with others who are still learning the basics. As a chess aide and helper for Sid, I thoroughly enjoy working with someone who has great enthusiasm!"

"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."
