Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

If you or your child is struggling in writing, it can be a daunting task to write an essay or story to communicate a point, or to write a persuasive speech that wins audiences over. If you can write, you can go anywhere in life! Much of our schools are struggling with core writing standards. This requires much outside tutoring. If you or someone you know is struggling in writing, I can help with topics, essays, grammar, subject verb and sentence agreements, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and much more! I can also tutor in MLA format for research papers. I'm available in person and online.

With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as

Randy did an excellent job. Very patient and knowledgeable regarding the subject matter.
Daniel
Randy is a great singing tutor. He’s patient, flexible and encouraging. My son is a little reserved boy and not comfortable at expressing his feelings, and Randy helped him reading through every phrases before the singing. That was very helpful. Thank you Randy!
Amy E.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Broke down challenging concepts and problems in very understandable terms. Saved me hours a week of having to read my child’s textbook and watch YouTube to teach my child what he wasn’t understanding from his middle school teacher.
