I always personalize my sessions to your needs, expectations, and hobbies. I am here to help you to reach your goals, to pass your exams or to solidify your knowledge for a personal or professional goal.

I like to make my session fun, interactive and efficient !

About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

Bonjour !

As a native french speaker, most people told me that French is a beautiful language but so hard to learn! My answer is always the same "No more than any other language. If you have fun while learning it, it will come easily"

And I really believe it. That is why I offer French lessons using games, music and videos to help my students learn quickly without getting bored.

Either for personal interest of for profesional reasons, I will help you mastering French in an enjoyable way.

About Yaelle
Bonjour !

I was born and raised in a small town in West of France where the speciality is... a handkerchief!

I have since lived in Belgium, Norway, Israel, Romania and now Texas following my husband who is a scientist. In every country, I taught French to several students and developped great tutoring skills from it.

Beside teaching and science, my passion in life is cooking! I will be more than happy to share French recipes with you so you can feel and taste some of the French culture.

Do you want to be immersed in French culture ? I am a native French speaker and I have experience in teaching various skills : high-school level French, Maths, Biology and college-level Geomorphology and Hydrogeology.

I am thrilled to share my French culture and teach my mother tongue to any student, whatever your level and expectations are. I adapt my teaching methods to you. For beginners, I focus on a way to teach fast simple everyday sentences and basics (and when you are an English speaker it is easier than you would think !). For more advanced levels I include various course materials, such as newspapers, videos, TV shows, songs and so on.

I am curious to know what brings you to learn French ! I am available to any request on my teaching methods or to talk about your goals ! See you soon.

About Rejanne
I am a French citizen and I moved to the US in 2017 for a postdoctoral position in my original field : I have a Ph.D in Geology. During my studies I had the opportunity to teach very various skills such as French grammar, High-school Maths and Biology, or College-level Geomorphology and Hydrogeology. I also volunteered a couple of years to teach French as a foreign language to non-French adults, in France.

I love the challenge that teaching is, adapting to every student and their goals. While teaching French to my American husband I got really interested in the mechanisms of learning French as a native American English speaker. I can cover all the specificities of French : grammar, vocabulary and of course pronunciation.

Learning a language is not only about grammar and pronunciation, so if you are interested to know more about Fre
nch culture, food, philosophy, let me be your guide !
