Hello! I have been crocheting for several years now. In your first lesson, I will walk students through selecting materials, learning a few basic stitches, and how to read a pattern. In your second lesson, we will begin working on a pattern from a few curated beginners patterns. In a third lesson, I will teach some additional stitches and provide an additional pattern for the student to complete.

My goal in my lessons is to teach students how to be successful in their crochet project, so they will feel prepared to take on more challenging patterns in the future. Crochet is relaxing, fun, and beautiful, and I want to inspire the same feelings when my students attend my lessons.

About Heather

I have been crocheting for about 3 years, and I love to share my passion with others! I have taught several friends and family members but I joined TakeLessons to try to branch out and teach others. in my day job, I am a project coordinator for an IT company, so crochet allows a great creative

Edward and I had a horrible time trying to connect via the Take Lessons interface. I could see and hear him but he couldn't hear me. This being interactive doesn't work. We futzed with it for about 20 minutes and then went to Skype, which worked perfectly. Take Lessons needs to get their act together on their interface.

Once connected via Skype, we had an almost instant "buddy" connection. Eddie is really pleasant and very good at working with what you have, which in my case is not much. We spent the first ten or so minutes with me hitting simple shots with the cue ball only so he could study my "technique." He immediate spotted about three flaws and we spent the next thirty or so minutes working on grip, alignment, open and closed bridge (left hand use for a right hander) and ball striking for an on line shot. From there he had me shooting a simple cut shot explaining how to aim it, hit the spot and pocket the ball. I must have hit that shot for him 30 times with only ONE miss. The whole time he was giving me feedback on minor corrections and positive reenforcement when I got something right. We finished the hour with him giving me practice instructions for the next week and a brief conversation about sticks and tips. It turns out I lucked out and bought what he called "an excellent entry stick".

I played a match with a friend right after the lesson and applied what Eddie had given me in our lesson. I made a lot of shots I would normally not have expected to make utilizing Eddies instruction. I still lost the match (my friend is highly advanced) but gave him more of a game than normal, and won two out of five. I'm very pleased.

I teach and play poker extensively. Winning at poker is a lot more than luck. It is about the skill of reading people, understanding incentives, math, and storytelling. When this all makes sense, you can win regularly in poker. I'll teach you how to win, and win consistently.

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
