Self time to learn something new and relaxing. Knitting has been part of my life for over 25 years. I love to teach others something new and and bring them to a place of refreshing rest at they create. Beginners and Intermediate levels are welcome.

About Melisa

I love to teach. I first learned to knit as a 21 yr old that decided to move to Norway from Kentucky to be with my boyfriend after I graduated from college. My mother-in-law taught me how over 35 years ago. Knitting is a great way to relax, it is repetitious so it is great for those with anxiety

Experienced and patient first came to mind. Has been a knitting peer and problem solving friend for more than 10 years, and we knit together weekly when not practicing shelter in place.
Susan
Melisa is a very experienced knitter. Even though she is at such a high level, she can instruct others and explain techniques in a very understandable way. She enjoys watching students gain confidence and improve their skills. Very few knitters have Melisa’s mastery of this art or the ability that she has to teach it.

Hula hooping is a magical form of movement that is as much fun to learn as it is to watch. It is a great work out and stress relief. I have been studying hoop dance for 6 years and it is by far my favorite thing to do. I love to teach and guide others on their hoop journeys. My students experience immediate results and will build a good platform on which to build their own personal hoop flow.

About Morgan

My name is Morgan. I am a hula hoop dance performer and instructor for Spin Happy Hoop Dance in Cincinnati. I have been hula hooping since 2009 and take pleasure in sharing my art with others! I specialize in teaching both children and adults hula hoop dance. I have a ton of knowledge to share, so

I'm a Home Economics teacher with 30 years crochet experience. I have skills and strong foundation in handicrafts and specialize in fundamentals of crochet. I typically use inspirational ideas around me and modify them according to my students' needs. I structure my lessons in a way the students will learn what they want to learn without feeling bored.

I'm available for eager students of all ages and experience levels. I would love to work with you and help you learn to master the basics of this needlework. I will also help you build a crochet portfolio that you can use any time as a quick reference guide (and inspiration as well) so you can comfortably make your very own DIY crochet projects!

I am enjoying my lessons and Loudel is very flexible when I need to move my am appointments because of work conflicts.
Carie and Courtlyn. M.
Loudel is a natural teacher. She not only teaches in a way that is easy to understand and build on, but gives much needed insight into the historical aspect of how Tagalog has evolved in your first lesson. Her knowledge of how you can connect the grammatical rules of English and Spanish are also beneficial in helping make connections. In order to get the most from your lessons, immerse yourself in the resources she sends you ahead of your lesson. More importantly, relax and enjoy your session! You have chosen an excellent instructor.
Danie
Absolutely wonderful teacher. Great lessons, professional handouts. I couldn’t have asked for a better Tagalog teacher.

"I normally don’t leave reviews, but after gone trough a few mediocre chess teachers, we are so happy we found Sam and I wanted to take a minute to say that Sam is an phenomenal chess teacher, our children( girl and boy, 6 & 9 ) Love his lessons and have grown so much in terms of chess skill level. Sam is very professional, super patient and uses exceptional effective teaching methods. He’s the best chess teacher we have found in south Florida, after years of changing teachers! Thank you Sam!"
