Kristin is a wonderful teacher implementing the practical and the theory at the pace of the student. She made this 29-year old going through a mid-life crisis wanting to learn their first instrument very relaxed from the start. Kristin also bends the curriculum to your genre's to make it more enthusiastic.

I've been teaching Italian since 2003 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of its culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll understand why Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world, and as time goes on you’ll love it forever. I lived in Italy for almost a year and I would like to share my experience about it with you. I love working with students of all ages and levels and I can't wait to meet you! Ti aspetto. A presto)

Philippe is an extremely engaging and patient instructor. I had the pleasure of taking two of his virtual courses, one with about 12 students and one with 5. He was able to teach to everyone's level without leaving anyone behind or boring those with a little more experience. He also made himself available outside of class to answer questions. I believe I made great strides with my French speaking skills because of him.

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playing

"At 34 years old I never expected to be taking chess lessons from a young prodigy who is 15 years younger than me. But I am so happy I took the chance. Danial has not only shown me the beauty in the game, but taught me life lessons that I have even used in my professional career. Each lesson really is specified to what I need to work on, and he can answer any single question I ask on the topic. The best teacher I have had in a very long time, and I would recommend him extremely highly. A diamond in the rough."

His lessons are always planned in advance and you can request specific topic to be covered. He is very patient, and allows student time to think through moves and strategies. After the lesson, he gives you a 'homework' puzzle to solve, which was reviewed in the following lesson. Definitely recommend!"

"I started taking lessons with Dipankar in November. At that point my rating was 1200-1300 on Chess.com. I have improved my rating to be around 1500.

Dipankar teaches in a way that makes you think about different positions and different strategies as if they were occurring in a game. He doesn't just give you the solution, he makes you talk him through your logic, and then points out any flaws / improvements that there may be. Ultimately, in a dynamic way, he has been able to improve my game.

I came to realize that the main reasons I was losing games was either an early tactical mistake, or a blunder mid game. Dipankar showed me how to think through each move, and some common problems to avoid.

I look forward to continuing lessons with Dipankar, and continuing to grow my game / rating."

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
