I absolutely love Kelly's teaching style. She explains things clearly and allows me to do all the steps myself, while overseeing and giving me tips. She also lets me choose my projects so I'm motivated to work on each project. She is also very accommodating with my schedule and kiddos who are sometimes in the vicinity.

Learn to knit basics
Hand Made Washcloths - In this beginners class Karen Jacobson will teach you how to cast on, knit, yarn over and bind off to create a homemade wash cloth. You bring yarn (4 1/2 oz. skein of sugar and cream 100% Cotton yarn) and needles (pair size 7 or 8, short ones are easier to work with) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin your own projects. This pattern can be easily converted to make other items, from table runners to scarves.
Hand Made Slippers and Baby Booties - Learn to knit and purl. In this more advanced class Karen Jacobson will review knitting basics (cast on, knit, bind off) and will teach you how to purl and make pom-poms to create a pair of homemade baby booties. You bring yarn (2 oz skein 4 ply worsted weight Cotton yarn) and needles (pair 10 1/2) and you leave with the pattern and the know how to begin making your own slippers. This pattern can be easily converted to make adult size slippers as well.

My primary system is 2/1, but I also play precision and standard american. I also know pretty much every convention out there if you want to pick up some new gadgets.

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.
