Billie began knitting at age 4. Over the decades she has knit everything from slippers, afghans, jackets, sweaters, baby clothes to dishtowels. She is a retired educational consultant who worked with parents and teachers to bring learning toys to children in their most formative years. She understands how life in our fast-paced world can lead one to feel the need to multi-task. Knitting allows you to do just that! You can have conversations or watch a film on Netflix while turning a piece of yarn into something useful, one stitch at a time. But it's also very relaxing, once you're up to speed. Billie is a patient teacher who will ensure that you'll be knitting in no time.

In your first class you'll learn how to cast on, and do the knit and purl stitches.
If time permits, you'll also learn how to bind off. Billie can help you select patterns to make things that will be at the right skill level for you.

I am currently 21 years old and have had chess be a part of my life ever since my great grandfather had taught me how to play. I started my teaching career as a helper for my old teacher when I was 12 years old. I started doing 1 on 1 lessons and small group lessons starting when I was 15 years old and did it all through out high school. In college I volunteered at the local library and would teach chess lessons for free. I have experience working with students from ages 5-13 and still keep in contact with a few of my past students. I have a straight forward style and will not only teach your child chess but also discipline, curiosity, and thoughtfulness. I look forward to connecting and working with you.

Alec was very thorough with the lessons from the start and he seemed to have a set plan for how to progress next. He did not only teach the elements of chess but also trained in particular techniques and with "puzzles" for additional practice.
