About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

About Kim
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to fi
nd out why my students love me.

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 8 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

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!!!

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

About KIM
I am a fashion samplemaker, and a devoted sewing teacher! My greatest joy is seeing my students master new skills, empower themselves through crafting their own style, and applying their learning throughout their lives. I maintain a blog on Tumblr where you can see some current and past fashion samplemaking work (as released by the designer themselves) as well as video tutorials that I've made.

While I am patient, my enthusiasm is palpable during each lesson. Each lesson is designed for maximum student engagement using a show-not-tell approach. Sewing is a hands-on enterprise! So, I do my best to empower each student with each lesson.

Kim is super knowledgeable and great at connecting tools, skills and goals. I have learned a lot more already in one lesson than I would have expected, all of it relevant to what I want to be able to sew for myself on my machine. Thank you, Kim! Looking forward to my next lesson :)

I found Kim after looking for someone to make me some custom athletic tank tops for the gym. After meeting her, I chose to learn how to sew instead, because she did a good job of making sewing make sense to me. To say I felt awkward my first time in a sewing store as a 6'6" bodybuilder the understatement of my life.

She took me from knowing nothing at all about sewing to being able to make my own work-out tops. Then she taught me how to make work shirts, and soon together we will start making my first pair of pants. (If you're as tall as I am, you know this is a very big deal.)

Friends and coworkers, for the first time, they're seeing me in clothes that fit my arms and shoulders properly and they ask where I got them. I feel really good about that, and I don't have rashes under my armpits from too-tight "XL" shirts.

If she can get my burly dopey butt to learn to sew, she can teach anyone.

She also has a stocked sewing studio. Most lessons I go there to learn, but I've also had her visit my place. I prefer to go there, if you need a button or fabric, she probably has it, and will let you buy muslin from her instead of taking a special trip to the Garment District to get it.

About Matthew
Hello, there! My name is Matthew! I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students learn the knitting/crocheting basics, expand their understanding of their abilities, and find a proactive way to relieve stress and bad moods. I teach knitting English or Continental style, multiple cast on methods and when to use them, different increase and decrease methods achieving different looks depending on the pattern and desired outcome, and finally different bind off methods.

I knit and crochet for a high fashion handcrafted company (The Third Piece), I have an Etsy shop, and am commissioned to crochet for international competitions. I'm a kind and outgoing person and my teaching style is relaxed yet focused, goal oriented, and fun! Knitting and crocheting are wonderful ways to express yourself, relieve stress,
and to make gifts for multiple occasions. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
