Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 19 years, singing for 25, and playing piano for 20 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I am currently a member of Trip City Lights, an LA local funk/soul band, where I provide lead and backing vocals. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and songs (covers and originals). I have also composed/arranged various pieces for ensembles, bands, vocal groups, choirs,
plays, musicals, commercials, etc. I've worked with folks locally in LA, and all over the world. I love what I do!
History has always fascinated me. The way our world has developed and changed and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.
Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 10 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!
Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

Erin is an outstanding instructor. She is very, very knowledgeable. I have a pattern and it was poorly written. She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor.

Over the years I have taught adults and children and currently teach at an after-school program. Previously, I taught both group and private lessons at my yarn Slip Stitch Needlecraft. My years of teaching has give me insight on different learning styles, and adapt my lesson to each student so that they can learn in and enjoyable, stress-free manner.
Great crochet lesson from Claudette. I wanted more info on design and the lesson was tailored around specifics that I needed to help me design new garments and also improve my existing designs. Claudette is very friend and personable and hugely knowledgeable on crochet!

I am a full time online English Teacher, and a previous daycare owner for 10+years. I have tutored many of preschool and elementary students, with math, reading, phonics, writing etc for years and my students academic grades have improved tremendously; within the first few lessons. My teaching philosophy, is that learning requires more than just educating someone or acquiring new knowledge. In my opinion, I feel, that it is more so rather, are entire inner and outer circle of well being; which is why my approach to teaching is from an aural, visual and curiosity perspective. Clay Patrick Bedford, once said: “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives” My teaching techniques are always challenging. However, very exciting, interesting, with a blast of fun and lots of activities; very suitable and appropriate for your child's grade level. I always assess, recognize strengths, weaknesses, and structure my lessons accordingly. This helps me to monitor the students’ progress and provided insight to their expectations. Whenever my students learn something new, I stress how much they have achieved so far, rather than pointing out how much more they need to learn. During my teaching experience I have observed that a confident learner progresses more quickly than a discouraged one. My number one goal, is your child's success. Let's aim for the stars!
My youth was spent in Eastern Europe which meant cold winters. With that came mom’s teaching on how to make a scarf, a blanket, socks and sweaters. Though nowadays it may be counterproductive to knit, there is no better way to show someone you love than something that is handmade by you. I’ll teach you what it takes to get started. Book your sessions now and let’s start crocheting.
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is and how grateful I am to learn from him, too. For instance, about a famous language called "esperanto", a language created in the late 19th century.
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested studen
t who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).
I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.
I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.
I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.
I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
I am a very back-to-basics teacher. Crochet is a craft where learning the absolute basics will allow you to create incredible things. Just using the basics of chaining, single crochet, double crochet, color-changing, and crochet in the round, I was able to invent patterns for and create over a dozen unique pillows for my friends. Learning a stitch like a half-double back post crochet may sound impressive, and can allow you to create a unique design, but it's not necessary to make something beautiful.
I will walk you through the basics of crochet and teach you to make a few basic things to get a feel for the craft. I can also assist you in reading a pattern you may have found somewhere, as well as trying to determine how something you found was made so you can try to recreate it. I will also walk you through the basic terminology and mechanics of the craft, such a hook size, yarn weight, and things like that.
I am a law student currently looking to do some extra work and make a little money on the side. I began to crochet about three and a half years ago, picking up a how-to book, a hook, and some yarn from my local Micheals. I wanted something to do with my hands while watching TV aside from playing Minecraft for the thousandth time, and crochet became the answer.
Crochet is an excellent hobby, especially for a person with ADHD like myself. It allows me to occupy my hands when doing something else, while at the same time creating creative and useful. It can also be a great stress reliever, allowing you to get lost in the repetitive, almost mindless motions of the hook and yarn.
I look forward to meeting with you and passing on the knowledge I have acquired.
Sharing my passion! I have been crocheting for 4 decades and I want to share this amazing art form with you! I have taught individuals from 6 years old and up, beginner to intermediate. Learn at your pace. Once you have gained the basics, there is no limit to the beautiful, quirky, and amazing things you will be able to create.
I am more than a crochet instructor, I am a self-professed craft-aholic. If there is a creative process, I am ready to try it. Even more than doing, I love sharing the skills I have learned.
If you have never held a hook or a skein of yarn before, or even if you have and didn't feel you were successful, I believe I can teach you this craft. There are basic skills you need to learn, but there are many ways they can be taught. If you have struggled in the past, we can try it a different way.
I believe everyone needs a creative outlet. I would love to be the one to help you find yours.
