Excellent Tutor

I had 5 French lessons with my tutor, Shelby S

Shelby is an excellent teacher and very personable. She is professional and has fulfilled all my expectations in brushing up my conversational French.

I highly recommend Shelby as a tutor

Extremely helpful

My son has been working with Shelby for a few weeks now and I can already tell there is a difference. He was not thrilled when using an in home tutor but he really likes the online aspect. Shelby tutors him in English and French and I'm looking to see some great scores on homework and tests in the near future.

My son's review of her is, "She is the best teacher ever!"

Renee is very knowledgeable, but also has the God given gift of teaching. She truly pulls the best out of my son. His diligence and focus are growing, right along side of his piano skills. We could not recommend her more highly.

I cannot tell you how many individuals have come to me and told me, "I have this sewing machine but I don't know how to use it." This is your opportunity to learn how to perform basic tasks with that sewing machine that might be collecting dust.

Being able to sew means being able to save money and make something that is unlike anything you could buy in any store.

I will demonstrate how to use your machine, how to care for your machine, how to read a pattern, how to preserve those special patterns that you use most often and how to be creative and make something that is yours and yours alone.

Tina is the best voice coach. She is very professional but friendly at the same time. Somehow my daughter(8 years old) clicked with her and loved singing with her! Tina successfully prepared my daughter for the Talent Show quickly even though the date was imminent. My daughter is currently taking a break from singing until her school is over. I highly recommend Tina to anyone who has a child or teenager as she is very patient and fun to sing with!

I have been sewing for over 30 years and was making my own clothes by the time I was in second grade.

I teach the foundation skills of handwork, using a sewing machine, finishing, hemming, ironing, measuring, pinning, cutting,and following a pattern or instructions.

I can help you make curtains, pillows, bags, aprons and other household items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern or basic garment.

My lessons are not like reality TV. Projects take longer than you may think they will. I will teach you how to properly create a quality finished project.

Please note, I do not teach pattern making, draping and advanced tailoring. My experience with serger/marrow machines is limited.

Please see the Overview below for general information.

Today was my first class with my teacher Kim. It was great experience learning from her. She helped me in every step in cutting fabric the right way using pattern.
After taking this class i have no doubt that I will be able to learn even with skype session as the teacher knows how to deliver her skills and knowledge even on Web cam.
Also i am not very good at speaking English because I am not native speaker and my mother tongue is different from English but still the teacher was able to make me understand how should I proceed my project of making wash day apron.
She is very nice and has very good communication skills along with the knowledge she has about her subject (Sewing etc)
I will recommend this teacher to others too.

I specialize in teaching the novice learn how to sew. From basics of repairing a seam, hemming pants to replacing a zipper or tailoring a shirt. You will learn basic apparel construction (ie: skirts, pajamas, etc.) as desired. If you have a specialized garment, I can assist you to make a pattern from that piece. Give it a whirl, you'll save lots of money on seamstress fees and make custom items all by yourself.

I had my first sewing lesson with Claudia and I was so impressed. I know sewing basics but have a new machine and needed to learn zippers and button holes. Claudia went over my machine with me and helped me navigate all the new features. She knows her stuff. We went over the information I needed to know about the different feet to do zippers and button holes. She showed me how to put on the feet and told me about other feet I might want to get. I am starting a project and next lesson I will do button holes and zippers myself. It is so worth taking the lessons. She is professional and very nice. I highly recommend her.

As I am still learning about the art of sewing myself, I only teach beginning sewing lessons to those wanting help with new machines or basic techniques. If you need assistance with specific areas, you are welcome to ask, but I very likely will not be the best candidate. However, I am always willing to work through issues with you and help find solutions as efficiently as possible based on my own experiences.
