I’ve been knitting for over 10 years, and my finished projects include sweaters, socks, hats, bags, pillows, and blankets. I teach my students to knit quickly and cleanly. I guarantee that as a result of my instruction, my students will learn to create products that they are proud of!

Hand Made Washcloths - In this beginners class Karen Jacobson will teach you how to cast on, knit, yarn over and bind off to create a homemade wash cloth. You bring yarn (4 1/2 oz. skein of sugar and cream 100% Cotton yarn) and needles (pair size 7 or 8, short ones are easier to work with) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin your own projects.

I am the coach and captain of the Yale Bridge Team. I am the 2018 King of Bridge for my efforts to promote bridge and excellent tournament play. I have worked directly with Audrey Grant on her online bridge column and teaching techniques––I taught as an expert panelist at her national bridge retreat.
I bring a fun attitude and encourage cardplay rather than lecture-style teaching. I enjoy hand recaps and analyzing individual decision-making.

About Reese

Hello, my name is Reese, and I'm a sophomore at Yale College. I am the founder, president, and teacher of the Yale competitive bridge team. I've enjoyed teaching college students, but I also have helped people ranging in age from 7-97. Audrey Grant, Jade Barrett, Robert Todd, and other world-class

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour
