Who doesn't want to learn how to make their own jewelry design with beads? I'm one of those who created an entire studio of beads supplies, learned everything that I know, and continue to experience with new opportunities. I make my own earrings and bracelets which are my first attempts that brought me to where I am. Now my portfolio extended to identifiers for wine glasses, necklaces, home decorations, shiny and colorful chains for prescription glasses.

My last creations just in time for Halloween are spiders which are very easy to make. The advantage is that any color and size of beads can make a creature of your imagination.

Tools required are minimal and the list for a certain project will be sent ahead of the class so you can work hands on along with me.

Note: a magnifying light is always a great asset to avoid straining the eyes and seeing close-up details.

About Isabela

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 teachin

Whether you are looking to learn a new system, gain master points, or master the basics of this most wonderful game, I am here to accelerate your growth.

My primary system is 2/1, but I also play precision and standard american. I also know pretty much every convention out there if you want to pick up some new gadgets.

About Aaron

I have played bridge since I was a teenager (20+ years), and have played well over 1 million hands over this time period. I am continually honing my own game via Bridgebase.com (handle = aceman34), arguably the best teaching tool out there. I generally prefer online lessons because I find my stu

Aaron was pleasant, professional, patient and a real pleasure. Can’t wait for our next lesson.
Linda Berez
Very good lesson.

Aaron has been teaching my 9 year old son chess lessons. After several months with a weekly lesson, my wife and I are very pleased with his progress. At first we had our doubts about whether online classes would work. The truth is that we are very satisfied because the use of technology added interest for my son in learning. Aaron is very patient and makes the lessons enjoyable, with some humor. He has a teaching method that combines strategy and theory with a love for the game. That is the magic of learning and is the key to advance one's knowledge of any discipline. Now we play more and more competitive matches and his progress is very noticeable. We also appreciate Aaron's feedback about how each lesson went and tips to work on during the week to reinforce what was learned.

I'm a passionate chess player with an extensive knowledge of chess theory who specializes in teaching beginner/intermediate (up to ~1600 USCF) players of all ages. Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction. Chess is a great platform to improve critical thinking skills and one's ability to focus, as well as a great way to have fun. My lessons will help you or your children gain an understanding of the art of chess and improve your confidence and ability to play the game.

"My daughter had her first lesson yesterday and it was great! Mya Mya was very patient with her and also let her work at her own speed while learning the machine. She’s 9 and she wanted to go slow, then fast, then slow again. I’m glad I chose to use a one-on-one instructor because I feel like my daughter retained a lot more information than she would have in a group class. At the end of a pretty long lesson my daughter didn’t want to leave and asked to stay longer! We will definitely be going back for more lessons."
