Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!

She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

About Ron
To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines.

American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Certified Master Instructor
World Dragon Kenpo Karate
Grandmaster 8th Degree Back Belt
Tai Chi for Health Institute
Certified Senior Trainer in multiple TCHI programs
Training available which can lead to Instructor Certification.

Ron has been actively teaching a diverse population of tai chi players since 2006 and has been involved in the martial arts as a student and instructor for over 40 years.
Ron also guides a group of local instructors, most who attend his lessons at Midwest Tai Chi Self Defense n Burlington Wisconsin regular
ly.

There are ongoing classes at the Kenosha Moose Lodge (Yang 24, Yang 32 Sword, TCBP, TCK,TCO, TCR, TCA Part 2 and Seated, TCE) and a Saturday morning TCA class at the Kenosha Senior Center. Ron's ongoing relationship with the University of Wisconsin Parkside Kenosha is where he's involved in community outreach through the Mini Course program.

Master Instructor Ron Pfeiffer has also been teaching Taiji Zen and the 13 Essential Forms for several years now and believes in the Beauty and Depth of this particularly powerful Tai Chi Chuan set developed by Jet Li in China.

Ron's journey into Health Fitness began in 1978 with various martial arts. In 2014, he was honored to be recognized through the International Sungjado Association for his over 35 years with a Doctor of Philosophy in Martial Science Degree.

All 30 to 60 minute lessons are designed for individual participants. Your goals are my guide.

I've only been working with Ron for a little over a month now but he is an excellent instructor. He is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, and easy to learn from. He knows what pace of instruction works and he doesn't try to rush through anything. Also, I find it helpful how he can relate the forms to a practical martial arts use which helps me to better understand. He frequently reminds me that my Tai Chi Chuan is great for where I'm at which is a powerful reinforcement. It encourages me to continue to practice and improve daily. I recommend Ron to anyone who is ready to start learning and discover the benefits of Tai Chi Chuan.

Master Teacher Ron Pfeiffer is a true find if you are looking for exceptionally high-quality of instruction. His depth of knowledge and experience in martial arts makes him a valuable tai chi instructor as he is able to elucidate the finer points of the forms and make your tai chi practical, as well.
His style of teaching translates well to the online medium. He keeps a sharp eye on even minute mistakes while remaining positive and encouraging, breaks down the movements, and is attentive to detail . He also has a sense of humor, which is always a welcome characteristic in a teacher.
Since he is very experienced, he can assess his students very well and knows just what level of instruction to deliver, depending on your needs.
I am enriched and feel I'm moving to a new level after every class with Ron. Very grateful for his instruction and highly recommend!

I have been working with Ron for over a year. He is an amazing teacher. His teaching style is full of patience and his explanations of each move are not only technically detailed in the physical move itself, but also in the reason for and benefit of the move. If you are interested in learning Tai-Chi, I can't think of a better teacher.

ls. If Stress Management, Pain Reduction, Safe Strength and Flexibility Fitness Training based on 5000 year old Practices mixed with the latest scientific knowledge and Guided Spiritual Meditation are your interests, I look forward to meeting you.

Steve really tailored the class to my needs. He throws in wit, humor and insight in his lessons. The fitness regimen he taught me is something that I can do everyday with relatively modest effort and time commitment. I am already seeing the benefits of practicing what he has taught me. I highly recommend his classes.

Steve contacted me before my first lesson to discuss what I expected from the session. I had only scheduled one lesson and wanted to try it out for myself and because I am enrolled in a graduate study program; I needed to try an alternative healing session so I could complete an assignment. I loved that Steve explained the movements and how they affected the internal body, mind, and spirit. He is a wealth of information and I plan on continuing to learn from him.

I haven't even taken the lesson yet, but am struck by his professionalism in reaching out to me by phone to discuss my knowledge and expectations of Qigong. You know the feeling you get when you talk to someone about a subject and you have an inclination about their depth of knowledge of it? No doubt, Steve knows exactly what he is talking about and with his extensive experience and personality, is a teacher that really wants to explain things in a way you really comprehend.

About Amelia
I am a former three-year collegiate softball pitcher and long time coach of beginner and intermediate players. I am a current senior at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. I am a graduate of Milwaukee Lutheran High School where I carry 9 school records in softball and recognized for my scholar-athletic achievement.
Pitching and catching students, no matter what level of experience, can expect to improve every lesson. Each pitcher is different in form and style, it is playing to those strengths and adjusting to potential weaknesses. I will be able to analyze form and technique for pitchers to be the best possible they can be. Catchers will also develop skills in the areas of setting up, recognizing pitches and blocking. Catchers will work with live pitching and scenarios to develop confidence behind the plate. Fielding and hitting stu
dents of all levels can expect to receive a foundation in the fundamentals of softball and to improve upon the skills in footwork, base coverage, and range.
As a 13 year softball veteran, I have seen all stages of development and have gathered the knowledge of coaching from my former coaches and teammates. My focus for clients is to encourage proper form and the foundation of softball skills. While my specialization is in pitching, I work with all areas of softball including hitting, fielding and catching. I look forward to working with you!
