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.

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 just want to say, "I am very pleased working with Thomas." I never thought that I could master the game of chess especially by being impatient and a slower learner. This is my fourth lesson and I have already played a game of chess. Thank You So Much, Thomas. I can't wait until my next lessons.
