Crocheting is a hobby I picked up some years ago. It is great for reducing stress all while fostering creativity!
If you would like to learn crochet for the first time, or simply get back in the habit, I would be happy to crochet with you! Please contact me if you would like to know what I cover, as well as if you have any requests.
Starter Tip: For the beginner, I recommend working with viscose or acrylic yarn, as it is easier to work with when determining gauge (space between each stitch).

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, I prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I had an awesome learning experience with Karen. She is patient and knowledgeable and I definitely knew how to crochet when I left after just one lesson. She showed me how to make a scarf and showed me how I can take those stitches and make a blanket. She taught me how to read the symbols and patterns and I can crochet!!!

I have had nothing but the best experience working with Marlisa. She is patient, she takes the time to verify that you've grasped a concept you're struggling with and works to find the best way to communicate with YOU. I don't think anyone would regret spending an hour or two learning and chatting with Marlisa. I feel so inspired and more confident each time I leave a session. If you're on the fence about trying this; don't hesitate!

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Brooklyn, NY

I have been teaching crochet since 2013, with levels ranging from beginner to advanced. I can teach students the basic stitches to some of my favorite, more advanced techniques, including crocheting in the round, charts, lace, and colorwork.

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. :)

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!

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!

My first class with Mya Mya was excellent. I had taken a class prior to this and was not feeling confident about my abilities until I met Mya Mya. If you're thinking about sewing and need help. I would encourage you to meet with an instructor first one-on-one before taking a class or online training. The instructor and can help guide you better. I'm so glad I learned about this instructor. You will not be disappointed.

I have been crocheting for over 15 years and knitting for over 5 years. My true passion is knitting but I teach both. I taught for Michael's craft stores for a little over a year and then decided to venture out on my own and teach privately until I am able to reach my ultimate goal of owning my own yarn store. My current students say I have a lot of patience and am a joy to learn with. I can teach anywhere from beginner lessons to advanced techniques such as cables, lace and socks.

Amy knows a LOT of details about a LOT of different techniques for Knitting! She has been incredibly easy to listen to & learn from as her voice is gentle, feminine & soothing to take in & she’s pretty to look at :) There is a cleanliness in spirit that I see, feel and take in during my time with her & that I appreciate very much. It’s a truly kind, fun and holistic experience learning from her. It’s like learning from a loving guardian or elder sister... it’s a sweet, easy & spiritual experience learning from Amy!
