Origami should be enjoyable! With the help of these lessons, you’ll see that it’s easy to create complex and elegant Origami models! Each lesson is between 30 and 45 minutes and gets you from the flat piece of paper to the completed model!

Learn crochet basics including chain stitch, single and double crochet. I can teach you to make a hat, scarf, shawl, simple sweater, etc.

About Diane

***Online lessons only until the pandemic is over*** My journey in music began when I was around 5 years old and first heard the children's choir sing in church. My mother used to tell me that I would beg her to let me sing in the choir but she would always have to tell me I wasn't old enough.

Diane was an excellent instructor and I enjoyed her professionalism and patience with my daughter. unfortunately my daughter became dis- interested due to a need for " a personal touch" that only in home or studio practices could provide.

Donna is truly one of a kind person! I am so lucky to trust my instincts about Donna. She is absolutely an amazing person! I like to become a permanent student as I have been interested in many subjects Donna masters. Also, I must say that Donna is a gentle tutor and being. She is a true precious gem.
Dan
Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

Ok I literally just ended my lesson with Trivia and I wanted to make sure I wrote this review before I forgot. She is AMAZING. Her personality is so fun to start. No question is stupid and she REALLY knows her stuff. I had a project in mind that I've been wanting to work on for cosplay but I just had no idea how to approach the concept. I had messaged Trivia in advance to see if that was something she could help me with since this wasn't exactly a typical sewing lesson. She responded incredibly quick and said it was something we could do. She was able to fit me into a short notice class and broke everything down for me making what I thought would be an overwhelming project seem so much more simple now. I can't wait to start and I will definitely be in touch with her again the further I progress.
And just one other cool tidbit. I am in California and she is in Texas which I thought just added a little something more special to the lesson.
Thank you Trivia! Can't wait to talk again soon.
Toni
Really takes her time to explain ever detail from beginning to end highly recommend her for anyone
Simone
Thanks again for providing such clear & concise instructions. I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson & am feeling more confident about sewing.

"At first I thought the price was too expensive, but after only one class with my son I was blown away! We not take regular classes from Danial twice a week. His ability to work with kids and not only make the game fascinating, but convey complex ideas in easy to understand ways is unmatched! In addition, his many years of international tournament experience and ideas gathered from the best in the world is clearly evident. 10/10 recommend. He is the best teacher I have seen on the platform!"

I'm ambidextrous, a lefty by nature but do many things with my right and Amy was able to show me both left & right ways of knitting to see which one was more comfortable for me. She is knowledgeable and extremely patient, upbeat personality and makes learning fun. My 9yr old took a class with her and loved it. Don't hesitate, Amy is awesome."
