I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.

Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

Karen is a meticulous teacher. She explains lessons in an accessible manner and gives you hands on experience under her direction. She takes time to ensure the student's understanding and proficiency before progressing. She is patient and kind. She was extremely flexible in scheduling our lessons. I learned to crochet and the basics of getting started, how to read patterns, supplies needed and much more. I love that I am now proficient at my new hobby thanks to such a wonderful teacher. Thank you Karen!
Beth
AWESOME I so enjoy working with Karen! In advance of today’s lesson, we coordinated re work on a summer shawl Project. We both thought a summer shawl addressing those summer air conditioned restaurants was a good project for folks like me that travel a bunch and need take along projects. With Karen’s guidance in mind, I bought gthe yarn. Then Karen showed me 6-9 different shawls she’s made so I could pick target shawl pattern that wasn’t above my ability and appealed to me. I’m now on my way; 3+Rows in and feeling confident of noteworthy progress til next session.
Beth
Encouraging, supportive, first class instructor. I signed up for lessons after I realized the kit I bought was above my knowledge level. It's been an awesome experience. I am more confident in reading instructions and making the (pattern specified) numerous different stitches. F2F lessons is the best; its been an awesome experience. I will take more lessons from Karen - she's just that good; a real gem for "take lessons".

Martha R.
Instructor Mingla is awesome. She has been working with my 9 years old daughter for quite some time now. Ever since my daughter started her online math tutoring sessions with Mingla she is doing excellent in math. She was a B+ average student in math and now she is an A average. Mingla has a lot of patience to deal with kids and she makes sure they understand what she is teaching them. I can openly express this because I see how she is with my daughter. After each of her math sessions, my daughter always let me know how much she learned and how she is so happy she is able to understand math problems easier the way Mingla explains them. I truly recommend instructor Mingla for your children's needs in Math. She is a very dedicated individual who works very well with kids! Highly recommend her!
Michael
Very helpful and friendly. Easy to understand the language with her methods.

Mingla is very patient and does a great job of finding ways to explain Thai words in English for me. I would recommend her to anyone.

Knitting is a wonderful skill! From the practical -- such as scarves, sweaters, or socks -- to the artistic, learning to knit gives you a hobby that reduces stress, gives the ability to make your own gifts, and even earn a little pocket money! I have been knitting for over 20 years and selling my knitted creations for about 10 years. I can get you started with knitting!

About Christelle

I love creating: writing, knitting, seeing new things come to life and thrive. I have extensive experience teaching women's health classes and counseling in natural women's health, because motherhood courses through my veins. I am also a published author and speaker. I love to encourage and su

As we took a childbirth class from Christelle, you might say we took one of the most important classes in our lives from her! We honestly believe if we had not taken her class we would not have had nearly so positive an experience in natural childbirth, so much credit is due to her. Christelle prepared thoroughly for all our lessons, included interesting activities and personal anecdotes. Most importantly, Christelle made it clear that she cared not only about our grasp of the content but also about us as people. That made all the difference.
Ryan
Christelle is very knowledgeable and personal at the same time. I like how she can draw a lot from her personal experience as well.

I learned things I never knew and, as we went along, she gave me the reasons why things are done a certain way which is good so it'll make sense and I won't be as likely to forget them. I'm very happy and can't wait for Lesson 2."
