About Melissa
Hi there! I'm Melissa, and I am a fashion design and sewing teacher on Staten Island. I have been teaching children and adults how to sew since 2014. I've been sewing since I was a child, and I've been teaching since 2007.

I am mostly self-taught, and that, coupled with my youth, gives me a unique perspective when teaching. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson- almost all of my students finish the first hour with a handy drawstring bag to keep their new sewing supplies in. I have a specific sewing curriculum for the first 3-5 lessons that helps lay a groundwork for making more exciting things.

After we finish those steps, I work individually with students to make whatever they would like, from Halloween costumes to memory pillows to peplum tops. The choice is
yours. I'm not the kind of teacher that is going to make you spend hours mastering a straight hem because frankly, that's really boring. I want you to learn while working on projects you care about

My experience includes;

-I worked in a tutoring school teaching kids from ages 5-17 in all subjects.
-I designed a program called Creative Studios for creative writing, fashion design and fine art. I taught these subjects to students aged 8-12.
-I teach sewing and fashion design (including fashion drawing) to various students in a one on one format.
-I teach fashion design and sewing to tweens, teens, and adults at SI Dance and Arts Center
-I am a resident costumer for Sundog Theatre.
-I taught at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund Saturday Academy
-I am pursuing a Masters in Adolescent Education in Social Studies

Please note that I am located in Staten Island, NY. I may be able to accommodate some Brooklyn students, but please inquire before booking. I have locations in 10306 and 10309 that can accommodate students if you don't wish to learn in home.

My studio space is located at Staten Island Dance and Art Center. It's a lovely, artsy space with bright yellow walls, four sewing machines, 2 professional mannequins, and a closet full of fabric and notions!

About Haddar
Hey, I'm an Israeli Messianic Jew. I studied fashion design & makeup in Israel to very high levels. I've always had a passion for fashion & other arts, every sense I was little I was the makeup artist in my family for special ocasions (yes, I was a little girl doing grown women's makeup & hair) I always enjoyed making things.

I decided to study Fashion design because I had a dream to make my own wedding dress. Little did I know I was going to fall in love with it, & work hard to be the best I can possibly be. then I decided to study makeup to be able to offer more to a bride, & couldn't stop taking more & more advanced classes into fashion & unique styles.

I'm happy I know how to do things most salons don't, like ballroom dancing dresses, or modest corsets. I've always been happy to help others be the best they can possibly be & sha
re my skills. I will be very happy to share my skills with you, & help you be the best you can possibly be. So let's get started :)

About Arlene
I am a Hairstylist, of 35 years. Owned and operated my own hair salon for over 14 years.

I graduated from Wilfred Beauty Academy in New York City. Advanced training was completed at Dudley Cosmetology University in Greensboro, North Carolina. Throughout the years, I have taken advanced courses to keep up to date. i.e. hair extensions, braiding along with non surgical hair replacement.

I have been a Cosmetology Instructor at post secondary school. I continue to facilitate courses for the State of Florida, along with her own private classes. Giving back to the community as well as sharing my time, knowledge and wisdom with the youth has been a very rewarding experience for me. My passion for the hair industry is what motivates me to continue to share and pass on the knowledge to everyone.

· Hair Braiding · Online
I have been braiding professionally now for about five years, and realized that there were some fundamentals of the art that I did not know. I signed up for Arlene's online braiding course, and I have not regretted the investment, as I am now able to better satisfy the needs of my clients as never before, which has resulted in increased repeat business, and scores of referrals which has impacted my business in a most positive way.
