About Tiffani
Hey There! My name is Tiffani and I can't wait to meet you and get you started on your own path to learning English, writing a novel, or reducing your accent. I have been a Freelance Writer since 1996 and an educator since 2005, specializing in English Language Learning and Writing. I'm the author of four books and thousands of articles and news stories, and I'm certified in ESL and CASAS testing.

I'm also an experienced needle, designer and teacher. I have been teaching crochet for more than 10 years, and I'd love to teach you how to make something beautiful using this easy, elegant craft.

My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine.

I have a flexible teaching style, and my bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science and my 15+ year history in working with students with specia
l needs, allows me to approach lessons from many different angles. No matter your difference, I am the teacher who can help you reach your goals because your goals are my goals.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2005. I'm available most days of the week (check out my calendar), and I can work with you online through Skype, in person in the Allentown area at a coffeehouse or your home. Contact me for specific details, and I'll get back to you right away.

Learning a new language, or how to launch your freelance writing career, can be daunting, but you have everything within you to be successful. I'm here to help share my gifts, education, and experience with you. Contact me today, so I can help you reach your goals and realize your dream. Blessings!

I went to Kari to get help with hidden stitches to make upholstery Seam repairs. She really helped me fix a lot of bad habits. I'll continue to work with her on leather seams as well. She is very professional as a teacher. She has a very good eye and can catch mistakes quickly. I was quite impressed with her artistic abilities. Kari has a really unique set of skills.

About Arun
Hi! My name is Arun. Although I currently work as a consultant for Bain & Company, I have played chess competitively since age 10. My current USCF rating is 1874, and I have experience coaching both kids/adults since 2007. My coaching style is laid-back and open - I think it's important that chess remain a fun activity, even during lessons!

I also love teaching math. I have a degree in Mathematics & Economics from Dartmouth College, and have participated in math competitions (such as the AMC, AIME, etc) from a young age. I can tutor any material through the high school level.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt as my first chess coach and has greatly increased my understanding of chess. My games are now competitive with players 400 to 600 rating points above me and I feel I am improving every week. Funny how much I can learn quickly after playing for forty years, with just a few lessons.

Jeff was such an amazing teacher. He came to our home and even brought the special paper with him. Our son who is 7 and his friends (8-9yrs) thoroughly enjoyed learning how to fold origami and it was a creative fun way to spend the afternoon. We hope to do it again soon.

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 support my students and build into your lives -- to see you make goals, work hard to achieve them, and then succeed! If you are a student who will work hard -- and have fun doing so -- and want a coach who will cheer you on, then I am the teacher for you!

Baby Sign Language classes are either caregiver and child or caregiver alone. Baby Signs classes are appropriate for young children age 5 years old and under. Health coaching services are for women age 18 years old and up. My ESL classes are for women who are at least 18 years old.

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.
