Renée
Lisa has such patience and a very calm approach to teaching knitting and crocheting - especially when taking online classes. Plus she easily manages keeping everyone moving along at their own pace. In a recent dream catcher crochet class, I was much slower and behind most of the others in the class, yet Lisa continually showed me the new stitch over and over again til it clicked. Yet she also would demonstrate the next round of stitches for those crocheting at a faster pace.
Colleen
Lisa is an accomplished crafter who has a wonderful ability to teach crafts to those at various skill levels. She is very attentive and encouraging, a true pleasure to be instructed by. Whether in person or online she is very personable and accommodating. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone seeking knowledge in her areas of expertise.

Great experience. Patient instructor who works to include all. Very technically savvy and looks to meet all at their point of need;$

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.
Dan
Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

"Matthew is very knowledgeable of the game. He is easily approachable and has the ability to connect with students of all skill levels as well as multiple generations. My teenage son was comfortable with him immediately and he is not always receptive to learning if the setting feels awkward to him. As for my own experience I received valuable insight into my own games after reviewing score sheets from tournament games and isolating those ever present blunders that seem to lurking on every chess board just waiting to be discovered. Anyway I give a hearty two thumbs up to my millennial friend."
