Now that I've been sewing for 6 years, I constantly wish someone would have taught me as a child. There's nothing like the sense of accomplishment you have from making your own clothes or altering a garment that didn't fit or giving a gift to someone you know no one else has. To be able to give that to someone else is what I dream about. Whatever your motivation for learning how to sew, I'd love to be instrumental in teaching you! All ages and skill levels welcome!

About Amber

Hi! I'd love to be able to help you on your journey of sewing. It's such a magnificent skill to have and there's nothing like the joy of making something yourself. Even if the end result isn't what you imagined or "good", the process from start to finish is one of the most life-giving and rewarding

Amber is very sweet and polite. She also listens and makes sure she understands what my expectation is. Besides my background of sewing, I also have limited English efficiency that I worry a little. Thank you so much for being kind and patient to me Amber. ❤️

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.
Rachel G.
Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

Hello everyone, my name is Danial Asaria and I am a professional chess player that has traveled across the world competing in tournaments representing the U.S. After achieving the master title at age 11, I have become a 5-TIME NATIONAL CHAMPION and am currently the NUMBER ONE 18-year-old on the west coast of the United States. In addition, I have played some of the best in the world including world champion Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura. My peak USCF rating is 2390 and my FIDE rating is 2340 awarding me the titles of national master and FIDE master. (top 5% in the world) I founded the Asaria School of Chess and have taught for three years in chess camps across the state with students ranging from 5-85 years old. One of my biggest teaching accomplishments is assisting one of my students to go from #117 in the country to #13 in the country (gained 500 rating points) for their age group in a matter of 5 months! In addition, one of my students went from 1700-2000+ in less than a ...

Very patient and exciting coach! My son is a beginner and only 9 years old but Danial explained everything in such an easy to understand manner that he was so thrilled after the lesson. Definitely one of, if not the, best teacher on the website.
Hannah
The best teacher I have seen on this platform! My kid has had many different chess coaches, but right from the start I could tell Danial was different. He knew how to explain every concept in such an understandable manner and took the time to make sure she truly grasped every idea. In general he is a very kind teacher who cares deeply about his students. Highly Recommend! She improved 500 rating points!
Jordan
At 34 years old I never expected to be taking chess lessons from a young prodigy who is 15 years younger than me. But I am so happy I took the chance. Danial has not only shown me the beauty in the game, but taught me life lessons that I have even used in my professional career. Each lesson really is specified to what I need to work on, and he can answer any single question I ask on the topic. The best teacher I have had in a very long time, and I would recommend him extremely highly. A diamond in the rough.

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.

We would play on our own and then review our games with him. He answered all of our questions and gave excellent advice on play. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn this dynamic game."
