I am really enjoying working with Robin. He is extremely knowledgable and experienced, and has already taught me a lot. He is assessing what I already know and what direction I want to go in, and he is making this totally individualized to the coaching i am looking for. I appreciate his efforts, expertise and thoughtfulness.

Robin is a natural teacher. I have had several golf lessons with him and was impressed by his knowledge of the sport and passion for the game. He often went about and beyond what I expected. I am looking forward to more lessons soon.

I have played billiards for over 20 years, with success at many levels. I am a certified educator who also enjoys teaching the art of pool. I have helped many players along the way and I am adept at incorporating useful practice techniques to help my students achieve their goals.

I have been teaching people how to play pool for 9 years and can tailor the lessons around whatever you are having trouble with. That might be pocketing object balls, controlling the cue ball, shot selection, game strategy, etc. If you're just learning the basics, then we can start with the rules and fundamentals and go from there! My goal is to have a fun-filled learning experience. So if you enjoy playing and would like to learn more, let's schedule a time that works well with your schedule!

I grew up with a pool table in my house and still love playing to this day. I can teach you the basics of playing pool so you can win anytime you're playing with friends or while out, even up to how to do jump-shots and trick-shots to impress some people!

guitarist in a local Chicago band LOOMS. a year ago we asked Rush to design a flier for some of our upcoming shows. we were so in love with what he made for us, that I ended up reaching out on my own to ask for photoshop tips. we did one "formal" lesson (this was before he was registered on the website) and man we covered a lot in 45 mins. i was surprised when rush told me he is still in school. you would have no idea from the way he conducts his lessons.

As a seasoned takelessons teacher myself, I was enthralled with Rush's professionalism and deep understanding of photography.
Many of my own students are adults who now finally have the time to learn something they've always wanted to do. So, I decided to follow my little long-term dream of learning more about photography, and boy am I glad I did! Rush is kind and patient, and has a knack for lesson personalization. I can't wait for our next lesson!!
