Chereeka is professional and knowledgeable. She was able to teach my son various strategies and skills that helped him on the SAT. Chereeka was easy to communicate with and prompt. My son felt like she helped him more than the tutor we had used previously.
I had very nice meetings and phone discussions with Tom. He completely understands what I need help with (MATLAB, flow charts, general understanding of algorithms and logic) and customizes his approach to ensure my understanding.
Before today, I had *never* played a woodwind instrument. Yet, within 5 minutes (after Silvio explained the different kinds of clarinets and how to properly put it together), I was playing G, F, E, D and C. He is very encouraging and has a gift for helping a student realize what to do differently to get the right sound. I left after the lesson (and note that he is liberal with his time and not a clock-watcher) and felt confident in being able to do my practice homework.
I will be seeing a lot of Silvio on my quest to learn the clarinet to an intermediate level (not looking to become a professional). Thank you Silvio! A+.
