I love knitting, enjoying making a huge variety of items using many different techniques. I knit using the English style, having grown up in Cheshire, England, but also knit using the Continental style of knitting too. I have been teaching knitting in groups and on a one to one basis for a few years. My students have ranged in age from 8 years old to 80 years old.
If you need help with a specific project, learning a new technique or just starting out as a beginner knitter, please get in touch.

I think Jane will be able to help me through a gauge related knitting weak area I’ve had for years. I’m excited to get to the next lessons. She’s very knowledgeable and had at her fingertips anything we needed to keep digging for answers and examples. Couldn’t have asked for a better suited match for me.

Tommy
Dipankar is a great teacher. I feel like I can attain my chess goals with his instruction.
Matt
I started taking lessons with Dipankar in November. At that point my rating was 1200-1300 on Chess.com. I have improved my rating to be around 1500.

Dipankar teaches in a way that makes you think about different positions and different strategies as if they were occurring in a game. He doesn't just give you the solution, he makes you talk him through your logic, and then points out any flaws / improvements that there may be. Ultimately, in a dynamic way, he has been able to improve my game.

I came to realize that the main reasons I was losing games was either an early tactical mistake, or a blunder mid game. Dipankar showed me how to think through each move, and some common problems to avoid.

I look forward to continuing lessons with Dipankar, and continuing to grow my game / rating.

donna gave a very easy to follow and straight forwards lesson, i came in with no editing experience and after about an hour i was well versed in my software and could edit a video alone.
Patricia
Great communicator. I was hesitant about signing up for ‘online’ lessons; however, I was able to walk through the steps guided by a very patient teacher. Donna is fantastic, and I look forward to our next class. I could've easily spent the entire day online with her.

Donna is a wealth of astrology knowledge. I found our sessions together to be informative, fascinating and useful for my overall understanding of astrology as a student. I recommend Donna!

I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one
children and adults for about 10 years. I have great patience when I teach
students never believing that any concept is too difficult to understand or
master. I have a love for the game that I want to instill in others
I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …
