Greetings!
I have been knitting for nearly a decade now, and along the way what I’ve learned is that people thrive when they are being encouraged. I believe that every person can learn to knit if they are willing to be patient and gentle with themselves. Knitting is simply a relationship between the brain, the hands, and yarn. I do not like to tell people there is a “right or wrong” way to knit. As long as you get the desired results and are able to translate instructions, that’s great! I am an ambidextrous knitter, meaning I knit English and Continental style (left or right handed knitting). I also love teaching knitters of all ages- especially children or older adults who have never tried to knit before.
Positivity, grace, gentleness, and a positive attitude are what I rely on most heavily to teach. I truly believe that every single person can learn to knit in an hour. I have taught lessons to groups of thirty women at a time in Uganada with only two sets of knitting needles, and ...

About Morgan

Greetings! My name is Morgan and I have been knitting for nearly a decade now. I believe that knitting is a deeply meditative experience and that it can be an emotionally and mentally healing exercise. Also, there are few things more satisfying than casting off a beautiful piece and wearing it

Tarek has been teaching electronics classes for my 13 yr old. He is thorough in explaining each step over the  video. Taking classes online needs special skill, especially with Arduino kit.  My son has been looking forward to every class. Showing circuits in the shared screen and explaining and making sure he is wiring things right needs lots of patience. Tarek has been enjoy doing this. Overall my kid has been happy to work with Tarek and will recommend him to anyone.
