About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

About Rhiannon
My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same.

I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knife" of crafters. I have delved into nearly every craft and love passing this knowledge onto my students. For these reasons I have a diverse range of crafts I can teach, including: knitting, crochet, embroidery, hairpin lace, needle felting, and shuttle tatting. In addition to my passion for a variety of crafts, I also love teaching a variety of skill levels, from students beginning their first stitch to someone who wants to redesign a pattern.

With a positive attitude and a willingness to learn I can teach you any of a variety of crafts.

Myself and a co-worker spent 3 lunch hours with Rhiannon learning the basics of crochet. Rhiannon taught us the various stitches and patiently worked with us until we were comfortable with each one. She also directed us to an online resource to support her instruction that we could refer to as needed. This was our first online lesson of any kind and we were extremely happy with what we learned and the convenience of learning it online. Thank you Rhiannon. :)

About Matthew
Hello, there! My name is Matthew! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn the knitting/crocheting basics, expand their understanding of their abilities, and find a proactive way to relieve stress and bad moods. I teach knitting English or Continental style, multiple cast on methods and when to use them, different increase and decrease methods achieving different looks depending on the pattern and desired outcome, and finally different bind off methods.

I knit and crochet for a high fashion handcrafted company (The Third Piece), I have an Etsy shop, and am commissioned to crochet for international competitions. I'm a kind and outgoing person and my teaching style is relaxed yet focused, goal oriented, and fun! Knitting and crocheting are wonderful ways to express yourself, relieve stress,
and to make gifts for multiple occasions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Siddharth
Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

About Brian
As above so below. I have come to the conclusion that Astrology is one of the most important things to understand in this reality. Almost everything is governed by it. Now with this knowledge you are able to step into your birth chart and essentially your purpose here. I feel it is my missions to help people understand the concepts of Astrology and how it relates to everything around us. With my teachings I will offer you knowledge of yourself. Take the red pill and I will show you how far the rabbit hole goes.

Hi my name is Cathy and I can’t wait to meet you! I am a 48 year old with two children. My daughter is a cosmotolgist and is 23. My son is 20 and in the Navy! I started knitting when I was pregnant with my daughter and have never stopped. I knew no one who knit so I self taught myself from a book.

Thank you for your consideration!

I have been a Reiki Master since 2015 and practicing Reiki longer than that. I love to help people find ones peace and healing! Feel free to contact me with any questions!💫✨💫🙏🏻

I love knitting lessons with Cathy!!! For many years I wanted to learn how to knit. But sadly the only one in my family who knew how to knit passed away. I kept putting it off and it was to late. But a good friend of mine, told me about Cathy's knitting classes. So I decided to give it a try and I'm HOOKED lol. Cathy is so patient with beginners and she's fun ,kind and makes me laugh. In no time at all I'm able to make hats, scarves, and blankets. Cathy offers advanced classes , so I want to learn how to make sweaters and other fun items. My friends and family love all their gifts I have knitted for them so far and they will cherish it for years. I highly recommend Cathy.
