(top 5%) I have taught for two years now in chess camps across the state for kids and adults and currently have regular students online as well.

My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars.

About Hans
Hello there!
My name is Hans and I am the quintessential do-it-
yourselfer. I’ve loved woodworking for about 20 years now and have finished my first tiny house on wheels (see photos below). It's a beauty if I do say so myself. Before I devoted full time to the design and completion of the tiny house, I apprenticed under an expert cabinet builder and trim carpenter to hone my skills in the trade. My ideal student may be somewhat or completely new to woodworking and wants to dive in with their first project. Maybe you have already gotten your hands dirty with a few projects but want to progress to a more difficult task but need guidance. What would you like to build? Whatever the case, look no further.
At your service,
Hans
P.s. I only teach lessons over the internet through the video classroom feature on TakeLessons platform. I do n
ot teach in person at present.

About Sarah
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.
