As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.
Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.
Look forward to creating with you all!

Learn chess from a self taught expert 2100 rating. When exposed to chess years ago it was love at first site. I realized there’s a reason it’s the most highly referenced game in the world. As your skills grow you will uncover the pure beauty and life lessons chess has to offer. Patience, resilience, relentlessness... and most importantly, the maturity to think before you move.

As your teacher I will arm you with strategical knowledge and tactical prowess. My most important job however will be to make sure your love and passion for the game increases with each and every lesson. I want you to win. I want you to have fun.
