I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one

I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.

Shiva was very charismatic and understanding. She didn’t rush or speed through the process. She took the time to help me get the grasp of what she was teaching me and gave me much encouragement when I felt like giving up. This is my first lesson here on this platform and I have to say that it was a pleasure learning from her. I will definitely sign up for more of her classes. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of
