She is continuing where my previous instructor left off. I would think it is difficult to
step in and continue another instructors work but she is doing that so far. I received some tips to improve my singing.

Mya is a wonderful teacher and very patient with her students. My 10 year old daughter just started taking lessons with her and she loves it. Mya is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher for her!

Mya is very patient with novice learners. Both my 12 year old daughter and I have attended class and we both walk away learning new things each time!

Mya has also been very accommodating with my schedule, allowing me the flexibility to adjust my lesson time on several occasions. She has a dedicated space to give lessons that is open and welcoming!

I definitely recommend Mya. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more. We are going to have SEW MUCH FUN!

Felicia is absolutely amazing. My daughter has learned so much in the short time that she has been taking classes. She loves every minute of it and makes sure she is at every class.

If you are looking to take sewing classes you definitely want her as your instructor.

I can teach a brand new beginner to thread and take care of his /her machine. I am proficient in using patterns, pinning and cutting out any and all types of clothing. For my intermediate students I can teach them to create their own patterns and make clothing from a picture they love. I can teach them to install any kind of zippers. Advance students I can teach major alterations and also how to make difficult clothing like wedding dresses and suits!

Patricia is a wonderful instructor and an amazing seamstress. I had a great experience today. I learned how to cut patterns as well as placed them unto the fabric. Patricia even went out her way to give me one of her sewing machines so I can practice at home. I will recommend her to any and everyone.

Stella as my first tutor on takelessons. She is not only an incredibly accomplished crafter and artist, she is a patient and knowledgeable teacher too. She really went the extra mile and I feel much more confident using my serger now. I will definitely be booking her again!
