About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. A couple years ago I began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people. I've recently moved to the Harrisbug, PA area, and am now teaching lessons here!

Thanks!
Josh

About Alexandra
I love learning and teaching languages and although I studied law I really prefer teaching languages (I speak 5 languages) and sewing (another of my favourite hobbies) love travelling and photography.

I will be happy to answer the questions which arise in between your one-on-one lessons. In short, I will do everything I can to increase your rate of language acquisition.

It goes without saying that I love to teach! I have an easy-going personality and a positive attitude. Learning such a beautiful and multifaceted language as Spanish or Romanian will be fun with me. I love travelling, I have hosted many exchange students, so I have developed good communication and creativity skills.

I will encourage your interest and curiosity into the different cultures by using amusing topics during the session, which will automatically imp
rove your experience.

I am able to communicate with students at a very personal level . I am very passionate and enthusiastic to get them to learn. I will also promote study habits.

I have a lot of nice material and is interested in what people have to say and their needs. I am friendly and kind; I try to correct students making sure they don't feel embarrassed. I makes people feel comfortable, and encourages them to participate and learn, -even the shy ones. I enjoy the class as much as you.

Alexandra was professional and kind. She very patiently helped me through some technical problems with the camera on my laptop. She immediately recognized the problems I was having on my crocheting project and got me on the right track. She’s friendly and put me at ease right away. A very pleasant and informative session.

About Bridget
It's a great day to learn something new! Hi my name is Bridget and I would love to be able to assist you in learning the art of sewing. whether you are a beginner or not, learning is fundamental in everything we do. all you need is a sewing machine, sewing supplies, time, and a big dose of patience. and we will hit the sewing room run running.! Lets enjoy what we do and how we do it, by bringing forth your skill set and my love and passion for teaching and sewing, to the next level. I have 30 years of sewing skills and 19 of those years I have taught people from all age groups to learn how to sew. No I had no schooling, in sewing my education was in commercial art and advertising design but I had always wanted to know how to sew. so one day I was gifted a sewing machine and made all the dresses for my wedding and haven't stop sewing since
. so I hope we can enjoy each other's company as we explore the endless gifts in sewing.

I'm a life-long learner and avid seamstress. I have been sewing since I was a young child and learned from my grandmother basic hand sewing. From there I learned other techniques through books, trial and error, and hands-on classes how to sew professional looking garments, quilts and bags.

I love everything about sewing from the ideas to the creation. It is a slow process and can be a lot of fun if you take your time and can enjoy the process. I want to teach others this amazing skill.

About Shelby
I learned to sew when I was 9 years old and it has proven invaluable in my life. Whether it was bonding with my grandma making things for people at church or making my own costumes for plays, I was always ready to learn something new. I was lucky to get the opportunity to work in the costume shop in my college theater, and learned many new techniques (not to mention getting to work with much higher quality fabric and machines).
I was introduced to crochet by a friend in high school who taught me, and have learned from various online tutorials and books to create the things I wanted since learning. Though I know how to knit, I'm always drawn back to crochet because it's much faster to master and, I find, much easier.
I would love to pass on my knowledge in a fun, carefree environment. If a student isn't having fun, they're definitely not
going to remember the lesson. I make sure that students feel respected when they ask questions, and if there is still confusion, finding a new way to explain the concept.
I look forward to meeting new students and sharing these wonderfully freeing hobbies.
