About Kim
For creative people and makers, crafting is like going to the gym. You will find great fulfillment and a sense of accomplishment if you set aside time on a regular basis to nurture this very important part of what makes you who you are. Think of me like a personal trainer. I will encourage and inspire you while you develop your skills and express yourself through a variety of textile based media.

Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing and enjoyable experience as you learn a leisure time activity. I am extremely patient and detail oriented. When you let me know what you would like to learn or make, I will guide you through everything from selecting materials to fine tuning your technique. Take a lesson with me to fi
nd out why my students love me.

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 8 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children.

I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience.

If you are using this site without the assistance of a TL Rep, I recommend the schedule as you go option. I often have openings in my calendar sooner than the site allows. After we make contact, we can choose the best date and time.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please let me know what you would like to learn or make before your lesson so that we may be fully prepared with any materials, tools, equipment, books or handouts. Students are expected to provide all their own tools and materials unless other arrangements are made.

Recommended duration for in-person lessons is 90 minutes. A surcharge may be added for travel outside of areas accessible by one MTA fare or expected travel time exceeding 90 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
Textile based crafts including crochet, knitting, embroidery, sewing, patchwork, plastic canvas, needlepoint, counted cross stitch, bobbin lace, historic textile and costume conservation and storage, and more.

I also love to research and develop craft projects for classes or master techniques students would like to learn.

It was a pleasure to take my first crochet lesson from Kim. She is knowledgeable, patient and shared technical instruction in a way that was easy to understand and follow. I'll definitely be scheduling more lessons with Kim!

This was the first lesson for my son. He was actually surprised and thought that it was a great first lesson. He said that Daniel reviewed the concepts with him which allowed him to solve the problems. He is motivated and is looking forward to his next lesson.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

I've been taking Japanese lessons now for a few months from Aimi. She is friendly, patient, and interested in what you want to learn. Because I have plans to travel to Japan, she has focused her efforts on educating me on what phrases would be helpful as well as ensuring i know key customs.
I've loved every minute.

Would 100% reccomend Aimi せんせい to any student looking to learn everything from conversational phrases/basics to someone looking to becoming fluent in the language.

Having almost no experience with the language, within the first 5 weeks of learning from Aimi せんせい, I have made tremendous strides in learning Japanese, so much so that I've decided to continue taking lessons beyond the first 5.

During each lesson, in addition to having a well structured learning plan, Aimi is amazing at explaining the cultural origins or words/phrases as well as some of the more nuanced aspects of the language. In addition to this, she also is very responsive over text, and is able to answer any questions I might have throughout the week (outside of lessons).

Lastly, I think the best part of these lessons are that they are fun, instant feedback and learning goals oriented, and that she changes the lesson/matches the pace the student is trying to/learning at.

ありがとうございました, せんせい!

About Grant
Hello!

My name is Grant and I’ve been helping students grow for almost 10 years now! How time flies! I started playing music at the age of 9 and have been in love with it ever since, staying active in my local music scene as an instructor, performer, manager, and booking agent. I have also earned a degree in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University for all of the students wishing improve their writing skills!

In addition to freelance work, (weddings, jazz brunch gigs, etc.) I am the lead guitarist for the Funk/R&B band Water Seed and the soul project RetroFit. I attended Indiana University for jazz guitar and have studied under jazz greats Dan Miller, Corey Christiansen, and Oteil Burbridge.

I pride myself in taking a students learning needs and using that as my basis for their specific lesson plan, always on a case-by-c
ase basis, tailored to each individual student. Everyone is at a different waypoint on their path so why would I use a predetermined formula to try and help them, am I right? I am excited to meet and grow with every single one of you, let's learn to love the life we have and let our studies become radiant!

I teach all kinds of disciplines from guitar, mandolin, banjo, and clarinet, to creative writing, meditation, and even astrology. If you have any questions about my teaching methods, skill level in a certain discipline, or anything thing you can think of I would be more than happy to answer you!

Musically yours,
Grant

I was hesitant about taking lessons on line but I was unable to find an instructor in my local area. Grant was fantastic!!! He was very patient with me and I was able to easily understand his instruction. He provided a lot of helpful information and I learned a TON in the first lesson. I highly recommend Grant as an instructor for anyone wanting to learn to play the Banjo.

About steven
Hey there!
I'm Steven. I've been playing games since I was old enough to hold a controller. Video games are more than a hobby for me, they are my passion. I have experience in every genre of game. Fighting, FPS, MOBA, RTS, you name it, I've played it.
My specialties are as follows, in no particular order:
1. Heroes of the Storm (Diamond every season)
2. Smash Bros. (and most other games like it, such as Brawlhalla for PC, where I have been in the top 10 in the world in ranked)
3. Overwatch (I have played FPS most of my life, including Counter Strike, Halo, etc)
I have a strong belief that when the average skill of video game players increases, it continues to increase because of it. The better everyone is, the better everyone can get. When there is more competition players will be more likely to push themselves and innovate more, makin
g for a better video game experience for everyone.
