 Tatyana Komarova, the founder of the International Talent Academy and the program designer has B.A. degrees in music, theater and M.A. in Exectuive Development for Public Services.

    The education is tailored to the individual child and their specific needs despite often being in a group setting. The instructors challenge the kids in a healthy and fun way, which helps them develop their skills more quickly.

    It is truly unbelievable how much my daughter has learned and absorbed. Elizabeth's teacher has a incredible teaching style; we are very pleased.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We start with talking to a student and parents about their goals. Then we evaluate a student and talk to parents about different opportunities that benefit their child the most.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

BA in music and theater, MA in Executive Development for Public Services; in addition - several early brain development courses and workshops.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$30/30 min - private lessons

How did you get started teaching?

During my Middle school years I helped with elementary school students, as well as worked and taught a variety of summer camps.

What types of students have you worked with?

All types, all ages.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our Christmas shows as kids create it themselves - lost of fun & learning in this creative process. as well as huge excitement during the performance.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure your and your teacher goals are the same as well as the standards. A good teacher, in my opinion, will give you a lot of constuctive critique and will lead you to improve on your skills in every lesson. A bad teacher will tell you 'you did a good job' and be done with working on your improvement.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Aks about teacher's experience, degrees, program you are applying for and a possible outcome, expectations, goals, standards, involvement, opportunitties to improve and perform.
