My first chess lesson with Atousa was WONDERFUL! Besides being a chess Grandmaster with a thorough grasp on the entire game, she was also personable, engaging, encouraging, and willing to work with me (although I am not a very good player yet). I thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and am looking forward to future lessons and becoming a better player.

Karl did a great intro lesson.
Ethan S.
Karl is a nice teacher. He is very professional, teaching me different techniques and theories. He also teaches things that other teachers haven't taught me, such as hand positions in the bell and how to get clearer/better sounding notes. I have learned a lot from him.

"I am so happy that I found Mya! I had a very enjoyable lesson with Mya at her home. Mya is a very good teacher, with sensitivity to the particular needs of the student. Mya taught me pattern-making. She did so in a way that allowed me to first observe, then practice what I had observed. I came away with a usable pattern to make an item no longer available in stores.

Whether you are new to sewing or need help in developing new skills, you will find Mya able to meet you at your sewing level and you will end the lesson with enthusiasm for sewing and looking forward to your next lesson!!"
