I want you to enjoy crocheting! Let's smile, make jokes, and learn a new hobby together! After your initial lesson you will have a grasp on basic stitches. From there, I will help you develop your crochet skills so you can venture out and begin creating for yourself or for gifts! Nothing beats a hand-made gift!

After each lesson, I will give you a small assignment to work on that will help you develop. I will let you lead the pace. Crocheting is fun and should never be stressful!

About Melissa

Crocheting has been an outlet where I de-stress and unleash my creativity! I always have a can-do mind! If I can i

Lisa was great! She is very kind and knowledgeable of the Machine. She made it fun while teaching me how to learn the machine. Thanks
Allyson McClurg
Lisa is a fantastic piano teacher. She is thorough yet patient, and makes learning fun. We needed a teacher who teaches how to count rhythm, not a teacher who just plays the song for the student to know what it sounds like. We found that in Lisa and are so happy! She is wonderful!
Emily S.
Lisa is great. She’s so patient and with someone like me who knows literally nothing about sewing, she walked me through the basics of literally just turning my machine on all the way to completing my first stitch. She even cheered when I cheered for myself ;) :D

Vena was very knowledgeable in all of the areas of sewing I had questions in. She drew on her 15 years' professional experience to give me great pointers for the clothing line I am getting up and running; was patient, and fun! Thank you Vena!

As a person, she is calm and positiv minded. If you search for someone that knows a lot, has experience in the industry and it super precise- I can really recommend her!

Having been a professional instructor for almost 20 years, I teach a form of Astrology that is termed "Western Vedic Astrology." This system uses both the modern Western Greek/Persian methods combined with the ancient original ancient East Indian Vedic methods. In this way the student, in a short period of time learns to evaluate a person beyond mundane psychology to the psycho-spiritual level.

The fusion of both systems creates makes astrology inspiring, fulfilling and enjoyable to learn because it is encompassing, fun and enlightening to the student. The outcome is an understanding of the planets and the cosmos at a deeper level than ordinary Astrology can afford.

The purpose and outcome of learning Western Vedic Astrology is to become a well trained and knowledgeable astrologer who not only able to assess the present and understand the past, but able to see the future as well.

About Deva

My serious Vedic astrological and spiritual education began some decades ago. I follow my intuition and try to be analytical at the same time. My karmas and desires compel me to act, just like anyone else. However, we are not only a ball of feelings and desires. We possess a mind and intelligence

Deva Roberts is an awesome astrologer! I've had my chart done twice before and this one was by far the most thorough and helpful. Deva is brilliant! I'm very grateful that I found him to do my chart during this challenging time of my life. I now have more clarity and direction.
Chennie Sudana
Having lived in India for 8 years, I've visited many astrologers. Most of them gave bad advice or incorrect predictions. When Deva did my chart, I was a little skeptical at first. Then I realized, that he wasn't here to predict my future like a fortune teller but guide me on the right path instead. He is an astrologer and life coach in one. After taking his classes, I now have a better sense of direction in my life. His strategy has helped me become more self-aware and become more accepting of myself.
Deri
I have been a student of Deva’s for about a year now, I take lessons with him in person. Deva has helped deepen my understanding of astrology immensely! I have learned so much from him and have excelled greatly in my astrology practice. I recommend taking classes with him if you are serious about learning astrology. Astrology is very intricate and it takes years to learn. I have found that taking lessons in person has helped me learn faster and understand things deeper than studying by myself. Or even taking classes online, as long as there is a teacher involved to talk to and provide guidance and insight. Deva is a great teacher! He is very knowledgeable and intuitive, which is perfect because astrology is both a science and an art, it takes both knowledge and intuition.

"Aaron has been teaching my 9 year old son chess lessons. After several months with a weekly lesson, my wife and I are very pleased with his progress. At first we had our doubts about whether online classes would work. The truth is that we are very satisfied because the use of technology added interest for my son in learning. Aaron is very patient and makes the lessons enjoyable, with some humor. He has a teaching method that combines strategy and theory with a love for the game. That is the magic of learning and is the key to advance one's knowledge of any discipline. Now we play more and more competitive matches and his progress is very noticeable. We also appreciate Aaron's feedback about how each lesson went and tips to work on during the week to reinforce what was learned."

"I enrolled my 11-year old daughter in Felicia's Saturday sewing class. Because the lesson is some distance from our house, I stuck around and observed the lessons. Felicia is unfailingly patient, kind and unhurried. She does not jump in and take over if something goes wrong; she teaches the child to cut, measure, stitch, etc. and expects the child to master and complete the task alone. Her classes are fun and my daughter has taken a real interest in sewing."
