My youth was spent in Eastern Europe which meant cold winters. With that came mom’s teaching on how to make a scarf, a blanket, a coffee mug wrapper, socks and sweaters.
Though nowadays it may be counterproductive to knit, there is no better way to show someone you love than something that is handmade by you.
I’ll teach you what it takes to get started. Book your sessions now and let’s start knitting.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

My father truly enjoys his conversations about the Romanian language and culture. Thank you, Isabela. You’re the best!
Susan T.
I am finishing my first set of lessons with Isabela. I can tell a big difference in how I am able to hear the language. Already, words pop into my head in French. I am pleased with how much I have learned already!

I have taken 7 lessons with Isabela. I can tell that my confidence is increasing and I am remembering more and more in French. I like how she includes written, verbal, and auditory (like YouTube) in our lessions.

I have been a teacher for 6 years, teaching in a school setting as well as online with elementary-aged students. With this experience I have learned how to cater to the learning needs of individual students. Because crochet requires a certain level of fine motor skills, I start at age 8. In my crochet lessons we will start at a level that is appropriate and work at the students' pace. My lesson plans involve creating simple projects as we learn various stitches that show off their new skills.

About Meagan

I am an elementary teacher that has recently become a stay at home mom. I teach online as an English teacher and now teach crochet! I have been teaching for 6 years and absolutely love helping my students. I have been crocheting for around 5 years and love to create a wide range of projects from ha

My name is Ron. Last year my 10 y/o twins took weekly origami lessons from Haggit for a period of 6 months. They are both doing origami diligently since then, and proudly teach origamo to their classmates. Origami became a fun family activity in our house.
In march 2019 they invited their friends to celebrate an Origami birthday party. Haggit taught the guests how to fold several models. The children had a great time. They were all talking about their experience the following day at school. I highly recommend Haggit for teaching and leaading Origami parties

Everyone gets to take home an infinity scarf and they all leave learning a new skill. Dawn works well with all ages, is patient, and really enthusiastic about teaching what she loves.
