Have you always wanted to learn to knit? I can teach you the in's and out's of knitting from beginning to end. Want to learn a new technique and need a little help? I often will take the time to learn new techniques just for the challenge of it. I have taught since 2010 and love knitting anything from washcloths to ornaments to socks and sweaters and beyond. This is a portable and relaxing activity.

About Angela

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their schoo

Angela was a an excellent instructor! She was very engaged with staff as we had zero experience! Angela was able to incorporate mindfulness practices into our knitting session with my management team. I would highly recommend her!

I have been crocheting for three years now and I make my own tank tops or shorts during my free time. I would like to teach others this skill because its very useful and can help to kill time. I love when people compliment my clothes and when I tell them I made them I feel really proud. I want you guys to also feel the same way. I hope we have fun during each lessons and I hope I help you accomplish your goal.

About ADIJAT

I am very experienced when it comes to crocheting. You don't need a degree to know how to crotchet. I have made several tops, shorts and got complemented for them. I feel so happy sometimes because I don't have to buy some of my clothes when I can just make them in a day. I am currently a sophomor

I love to teach what Eddie Kantar calls "thinking bridge". One of the aspects of thinking bridge is ability to count hands: distribution of suits and points.

Another, is learning DEFENSE. Every bridge player, on an average, defends 50% of a time, declares 25%, and does nothing another 25%.

My gurus are above mentioned Eddie Kantar and Mike Lawrence.

"I enjoyed taking lessons with Mr.Siddharth. He was a really cool instructor I could talk to and easily forget about time. It's always good to be so engaged with what you are learning that you put all your focus into the subject, and he easily allowed that. I even went over time in my first lesson, we were both so engaged!

I highly recommend Mr.Siddharth as an instructor. I am a relatively advanced player, but I can see how his wisdom can transfer over to beginners and intermediates. I will consider even more lessons in the future. One small caveat was his small bouts of absent-mindedness (moving the wrong piece, forgetting what as the last move), but that never caused so much confusion I didn't know what was going on.

Overall, he doesn't disappoint. Book a lesson with him, and you'll learn something."
