Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.

I am a fashion and accessories designer living in Oakland, CA. My company has been in business for 8 years.

I am a trained patternmaker; I graduated from the Louise Salinger Academy of Fashion with an associate degree in pattern making in 1997.

I have worked in the fashion industry since then. Vintage clothing is my obsession and I love to be able to design and sew clothing.
I have taught intensive sewing camps to girls and found it so rewarding.

I would love to share my skills and knowledge to budding fashion designers, crafters, and to those who want to learn how to sew!

Maria was so helpful! She was able to teach me the basics of my sewing machine even though she had not used that type before. I could tell just by talking to her how knowledgeable and passionate she is about her craft. I plan to definitely have more lessons with her in the future. Thanks again! :)
Courtney
Maria is a fantastic pattern maker and sewing teacher! She was able to make a pattern out of my existing garment without taking it apart and walked me through all the steps of re-creating the item. Not only is she very knowledgable, she is also a great teacher and was able to explain things to me so I could retain them and practice on my own. I was completely new to sewing and she patiently answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable with the different stitches. She also taught me how to setup and use my new sewing machine! Maria is a very down to earth and easy going person; it was really fun chatting during our lessons. I will definitely be back for more lessons!

Maria was a very thoughtful and thorough instructor. I would definitely take another class with her!

My students and I have at least one in-person meeting per week with the goal of preparing them for rated competitions. During this meeting, I will go over tactical themes with the student, challenge him/her with puzzles, go over and discuss Grandmaster games and opening variations, or play training games.

I will also chat with the student and find out what she been doing, what she has been working on, and ask her what problems she has encountered during her training.

My passion is teaching Pool, known as Pocket Billiards. I have developed two unique training games that enables rapid progress on technique, aiming, pocketing balls and cue ball control. Most of all, they’re fun! If you have any interest in pool, take a lesson with me. You won’t regret it.

PS. I am an ideal teacher for children, with lots of experience under my belt.

PSS. Please note that the price here does not include my table time, which the student pays at the pool hall.

See you at the table!
