I have taught in small groups and with individuals. I have even taught over the phone...before FaceTime. I can teach beginners that will help them with their confidence in learning this new skill. What sets me apart is my personality. I learned in an unusual way and I share that with my students. I have found sharing my path will show my students they can learn too.

About Carrie

I look forward to teaching you how to crochet. I love the art and have been sharing it with my family and friends for years. It’s a relaxing skill that makes up for a hard day sometimes. It’s also fun to. You will learn that there are patterns and then there’s inspiration. I can’t wait to meet you

You know there's a jewelry artist inside of you. As a kid, you made daisy chain necklaces using handpicked flowers. In middle school, you made friendship bracelets -- neon, of course -- for all of your friends. Jewelry making was super easy back then! A little imagination, a couple of knots, and …voila! As an adult, you still find yourself longing to create your own wearable gems, but you need help navigating the world of tools, supplies and techniques.

In this class, I'll take you from amateur to artist. You'll learn the basics, build and organize the perfect starter kit, experiment with common repair techniques, and, by the end of the class, leave sporting your very own statement necklace. Bye bye expensive boutique jewelry, hello DIY! My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

About Tarcisio

I am a native speaker, I will be able to teach my students pronunciation , grammar, and conversation. Whether you just want a few lessons to help with conversation for an upcoming trip or you would like to work towards fluency, I'm here to help! I am currently a jewelry & craft maker in Pompano Be

I appreciate Tarcisio very much. I'm a beginner at Portuguese, and I find Tarcisio to be knowledgable and patient. I learn best from people who are kind, so I feel fortunate to be working with this teacher.

"I have really enjoyed my lessons with Florin. It is a fantastic opportunity to take lessons from an International Master, because Florin is able to quickly and clearly explain chess concepts to me in a way that I can immediately use in my games. My game has improved markedly since studying with Florin. He always keeps the lessons filled with good content but makes them relaxing and fun. I intend to continue my study with Florin and I strongly recommend him as a chess instructor."

"I Look forward to taking more lessons with Mya.

I took my sewing project —a tunic— with me and she explained clearly how to adjust the fit, which I’d been struggling with for a couple of weeks (and 3 muslins!). I left our one-hour session ready to conquer my tunic!

She is warm and friendly and is clearly not only an excellent sewist but also really good at teaching.

Thank you, Mya!"

"Dipankar has been an absolute wonder for my chess improvement; after only one lesson! He has a real talent for finding one's weaknesses in their play simply by quickly analyzing their games which is a huge asset. Secondly, he also takes time to not only give you areas to work on, but also the means and resources to do so. Dipankar was constantly giving me advice as weeks went by and has been coaching me regardless of wether or not I am in a lesson! He is a natural teacher and a stellar guy. I recommend him for anyone looking to improve their chess."

5 Questions Every Jewelry Designer Should Have An Answer For

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …
