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.

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".

About Mya Mya Seinn
Hello there!

My name is Mya and I am a very patient instructor and understand that students learn at a different pace, after all everyone is an individual!

Availability changes every week and please contact me for availability.

I received my degree in Geology from Yangon University in Yangon, Burma in 1993. After I moved to New York City in 2005, I earned a M.A. (Geology) from The City College of New York in 2010. I learned crocheting and sewing from my mother. I also took a bauble, bangle and bead string class, Draping I and II classes, and pattern making I and II classes from Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

I’ve been teaching private sewing lesson (since 1998), beading and pearl knotting lesson (since 2009), and Burmese language (since 2014) and I have loved helping my students.
Although trained in
standard teaching methods, I developed my own method to fulfill my students’ needs.

I am looking forward to helping new students to achieve their goals!

Mya was an awesome teacher! I am/was a complete novice prior to this lesson and, after an hour, she had me confident enough to go out and buy my own machine and start practicing with easy projects. After I get all set up at home and get some practice in, I will most definitely be returning for more lessons! I also love that she sent me home with notes and the practice samples we did so I can remember them later. Great experience - will definitely be back!

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 Adriana
Hello there! I’m Adriana! I’m a Professional Hip Hop/Urban Freestyle Dancer and Creative Influencer— while having a very unique approach to fuse meditation within my teaching. Although I went to college for International Business, I found that Dancing was what made my soul sing! I took that passion and made something out of it, and every since then I have been able to Work with variety of different artis in the Maryland, DC, and Virgina areas.

I will admit that I didn’t go to your traditional preforming arts school, but I learned through a variety of professionals in array of dance styles. I can proudly say that I taught myself how to freestyle, which is one the hardest things to do as a dancer. I then took my dance up a notch and added more to the visuals by adding jewelry and fashion. With this addtion under to my belt, I’ve been
able to truly display my full essences of myself in music videos, and project with different artist all over the world.

Students of mine can expect to learn more than just dancing but also learn to freestyle while incorporating fundamental techniques, and be able to allow dance to be a catalysts to build stronger confidence; While also developing a balance of the mind to enhance peace/happiness in ones life through dance meditation, and being able to express all thoughts fully through the body. I’ve learned that Dance can offer so much— you just have to be a little creative and my goal is to help you unlock your creative potential.

I’ve taught a variety of privates lessons, group classes, and summer camps. I’ve taught ages ranging from ages 3 and up. All I need is your time and determination to help achieve you goals!

Hi, I'm Michelle! I've been sewing for most of my life. As a little girl I used to sew doll clothes and matching clothes for me and my friends! I'm a creative at heart and love to sew, bake, play the piano and honestly most creative endeavors. You can find me at home on a weeknight jamming to 90's love ballads, watching HGTV/Cooking channel while I sew. I love playing with patterns, prints, textures and making new outfits and learning new skills. By day, I work with special needs kids. I have taught piano lessons and sewing lessons and currently am focusing more time on teaching sewing to eager students. With the Great British Sewing Bee, Project Runway and more, so many people have become interested in sewing and rightfully so. It's a wonderful skills to have. I'd love to give you a chance to bring out your inner creative. Let's sew!
