My students can expect a lesson that's full of fun, engaging and accompanied by a high level of passion and energy.
I'm result oriented and very dedicated to my students and provide students with a lot of constructive feedback during the lessons.
Lessons will mainly focus on students strength and weaknesses, through many different means. The lessons are supplemented by several materials: work book problems, live game play, analysis of student's own games, online resources, classic game review and much more. My custom lesson plans are based on the student's own background and experience. I am always committed to making each lesson fun and exciting!

I love...love...love crocheting. It's so much fun and a relaxing creative time. I have been crocheting since I was 9 years old. I am left-handed. I started out making chains. My mother taught me a few stitches like granny squares and octagons. And then I began teaching myself to read the patterns. I have been reading patterns for over 10 years now. I would love to share my love of this craft with you. Contact me and let's get started!

I will teach using visual aides such as videos and diagrams. If we meet up I will provide yarn and needle for you to practice with if you do not have your own. The first completed project will be donated. If you have trouble following we will find the right method that suits your learning style.
