The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. We start with the fundamentals of hand-sewing and make our way up, all this with a mixture of fun, listenting and patience.

About Alexandra

I love learning and teaching languages and although I studied law I really prefer teaching languages (I speak 5 languages) and sewing (another of my favourite hobbies) love travelling and photography. I will be happy to answer the questions which arise in between your one-on-one lessons. In sho

I’m already learning a lot. She has me do a lot of talking which is very good practice.

Alexandra was professional and kind. She very patiently helped me through some technical problems with the camera on my laptop. She immediately recognized the problems I was having on my crocheting project and got me on the right track. She’s friendly and put me at ease right away. A very pleasant and informative session.

I'm an island girl interested in sharing my love for crochet with adults and kids alike.

Learning to crochet is fun, creative and benefits children in a variety of ways. With the current popularity of these crafts and the variety of yarns and cool projects available, it's also easy to interest them in learning, and is a cost-effective program.

As many teachers and doctors attest, improvement is noted in:

Fine motor coordination
Reading
Math
Comprehension
Critical thinking and problem-solving

About T'quylla

My name is T'quylla. I'm from a small island called Abaco in the Bahamas. My home was completely destroyed by Hurricane Dorian and we had to evacuate urgently. My mother taught me as a child and I find great comfort in crocheting. It's therapeutic and calming. Not to mention the great satisfacti

Aaron has been teaching my 9 year old son chess lessons. After several months with a weekly lesson, my wife and I are very pleased with his progress. At first we had our doubts about whether online classes would work. The truth is that we are very satisfied because the use of technology added interest for my son in learning. Aaron is very patient and makes the lessons enjoyable, with some humor. He has a teaching method that combines strategy and theory with a love for the game. That is the magic of learning and is the key to advance one's knowledge of any discipline. Now we play more and more competitive matches and his progress is very noticeable. We also appreciate Aaron's feedback about how each lesson went and tips to work on during the week to reinforce what was learned.
