Victoria was very knowledgable and friendly. She guided my daughter and I through the process of understanding the basics of starting a sewing project. We learned how to use a pattern to make a pair of pants and as a result discovered what works and what doesn't.

We were excited to have someone who understood our needs and was able to answer all of our questions.

Bgcheck Background Checked


I am an experienced Crochet teacher and am certified to teach crochet by the Craft Yarn Council of America. My goal is to educate and preserve for future generations the appreciation of crocheting as a fiber art that provides stress relief, is a creative outlet, and provides a sense of accomplishment.

I truly enjoy teaching others to crochet and have enjoyed 15 years of helping new crafter's confidence soar and creativity grow while teaching crochet in various venues throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties including Pasadena City College, Monrovia Adult School, the City of Santa Fe Springs, City of Glendale, City of Orange and City of Whittier.

Since 2004 I’ve taught hundreds of people the craft of crochet. While developing a well-organized teaching approach, creating effective lesson plans and fun methods of teaching basic to advanced techniques and sharpening my ability to tailor my teaching skills to fit the needs of all students I’ve learned that there’s no wrong way to ...

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!

Bgcheck Background Checked


I'm a passionate chess player with an extensive knowledge of chess theory who specializes in teaching beginner/intermediate (up to ~1600 USCF) players of all ages. Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction. Chess is a great platform to improve critical thinking skills and one's ability to focus, as well as a great way to have fun. My lessons will help you or your children gain an understanding of the art of chess and improve your confidence and ability to play the game.

About Kyle

I'm a class B (almost class A) player who has been playing chess seriously for just over a year, though I've been playing the game since I was a child. I regularly play in competitive over-the-board tournaments, as well as playing daily online. I have an International Master as a coach, so I am con

I had a great session with Kyle. He helped me better understand decision making in the opening of the game, and talked me through different ways on how to focus on other aspects of the game. Meeting up with him was easy. I enjoyed my lesson, and he seems like an overall cool dude.

The lesson went very excellently. Kyle was prepared yet flexible. Most importantly I learned.

Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player.

I will teach you how to make video games! I teach the following programs:

Scratch 2.0 - a great program to learn for beginners or children 8 and up! Put together code "blocks" like puzzle pieces to program your game!

Stencyl - For making games without typing code! Similar to Scratch where blocks of code are used, but much more powerful!

Unity - For making 2D and 3D games. We will use a little bit of C# language to code the games!

Game Art - Create game art and animation sprites for your games using Adobe Animate and Adobe Photoshop!

Children or Adults can take any of these programs. I recommend 8+ years for Scratch and 10+ years for Unity. 12+ years to really get into more actual c# coding.

Sewing is an important Life Skill and is the vehicle to teach self-confidence through skill building. Sewing helps you develop fine motor skills, improves your focus and concentration and teaches the importance of patience and self-control.
I am going to go teach you how to use a machine , select fabric for the right attire , identify the right thread for each fabric type.

"Lily is a great instructor. She knows her craft well. She is patient, friendly and has a great smile and laugh that helps makes her student comfortable and at ease thus making learning fun. Lily has the knowledge to help anyone with sewing, embroidery, machine embroidery and more. I highly recommend Lily as an instructor for whatever area you are trying to learn from her huge arsenal of expert techniques.

Lily is helping me to become proficient using my embroidery machine. She immediately taught me a few tricks to getting my machine to do what it is suppose to do without much effort. She has in one lesson given me tons of information and help to get my embroidery hobby started properly. It's awesome to have one on one assistance right in my home so I don't have to take my heavy machine anywhere.

I'm disabled and having a service like this one available is invaluable. I have to keep my mind working and busy, and this helps me tremendously. Thank you LILY and TakeLessons for helping me to fulfill my goals!"

He also built a beautiful bench for my new home that is extremely unique."
