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 Ashwini

Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.

Ashwini assumed that I was married upon meeting her, and asked me when I was getting married as soon as she learned I wasn't married. She also asked where I was getting married, even though at the time I wasn't engaged. Even when I made it apparent I wasn't engaged, she continued to refer to my boyfriend as my fiance.

She would send me political things going on in India, even though I have no interest, and it has nothing to do with the lessons I was taking from her. She asked me if my boyfriend was voting, and many personal things that shouldn't be asked of a student learning Hindi.

She often moved my scheduled time around without asking, which meant that I needed to move my schedule around in order to attend her sessions.

As a teacher she was pretty good, but some things disappointed me there too. For instance, I made a sentence in which a jeweler was a woman, and she stated that can't be correct, because there are no woman jewelers. I'm a woman engineer, and it's really sad to see such a sexist thing. Even when I attempted to ask about how you would say something about a woman jeweler, she said it was impossible. Later she said nurses could only be woman.

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

"I contacted Mya in the beginning of January because I was in the process of applying to fashion school and needed help and guidance constructing my design ideas. After I showed her my patterns, fabrics, and sketches, she confidently reassured me that everything would be okay. I came to Mya's home studio three-to-four days a week for three weeks. And during each lesson, she was incredibly patient in explaining sewing terminology, demonstrating techniques, and making suggestions on how to improve my designs. She was so knowledgeable that, at times, I felt like I was taking a college level sewing class. Seriously, I LEARNED SO MUCH! Moreover, Mya was sweet, funny, and incredibly hospitable. One evening, when I arrived to her house with pants wet from snow (because I had spent 1.5 hours digging my car out of my parking space), she gave me temporary clothes to wear while mine dried in front of her heater! No matter when I showed up, she always greeted with a big smile. I truly felt welcomed and accepted in her presence. And, even better, I finished my sewing projects nearly a week before my application deadline!!! THANK YOU, MYA :-D"

"I've had the pleasure to take quite a few lessons with Dan & I do not regret any of them. From the first time we've met at the pool hall he gave me a few simple tips & I saw a dramatic increase in my game. He has worked together amongst the pros & also has many years involved in the world of billiards. Everytime I meet with him I learn something new and bring back home some new techniques to practice which are vital to the game. He has taught me the basic fundamentals & stroke mechanics in which I had struggled with. He provides great feedback & is overall one of the best around with tons of experience. Any time I have questions or concerns I can reach out to him with no problem. Dan always delievers! It is always a pleasure working with Dan, he is very flexible, great on communication, reasonable & has the patience to teach to anyone! If you want to improve your game or have a general interest in pocket billiards / pool Daniel is your guy to reach out to. I am one of his current student's & he has not failed me. Dan always has a great demeanour & is full of knowledge on & off the table. Call or email him now you won't regret it."
