I loved how she was soo detailed with it. And it wasn’t rushed she took her time to explain everything. If I was ever lost she would guide and I appreciate it.

Great Teacher !
Anne-Louise explained everything I wanted to learn. Prior to the class I stated what topics I would like to cover and she did just that. she used examples and drawings to make my understanding much vivid. I look forward to having more classes with her.
Wynndi D.
Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.

About Patricia

As a person who has always been fascinated by the weird world of astrology (Scorpio sun, Gemini moon hey!), horror films, and all things occult, I naturally became an obsessive tarot reader, and I hope you all love it as much as I do! I always enjoyed teaching tarot to those who ask, so while t

"My first lesson went great! Anne showed me everything I needed to know to help me begin practicing on my own with confidence. She does have two small children who were well behaved, but if distractions are a problem, I would mention that before taking your first lesson. At the end of my two hour session I had sewn my first bag and now have something to show my friends and family! Thanks, Anne."

"I have had the pleasure of being one of John's chess students for almost a year and half now, and I can confidently say I have improved leaps and bounds from where I started. While John always has an interactive and challenging lesson planned, I appreciate that the lesson is fluid and adaptable to my particular needs/interests that week, whether it be because I have questions about a specific tactical exercise or master game we are reviewing, or because I have experienced a particularly memorable success or failure in my chess-play that I would like to review. The lessons logically and effectively build upon themselves so that your basic skills are solidified and bolster you as you move on to more complex theories and exercises. As an adult, with a hectic job, I am immensely appreciative of John's flexibility when it comes to arranging lessons and his ability keep me challenged and developing into a more formidable chess player."
