I have been crocheting for more than 30 years. I have taught small classes in the past, and learned much about how to successfully bring this wonderful artform into other people's lives.

My strengths in crocheting are in making clothing (bottom up sweaters, bottom up socks, scarves, mittens, hats, dishrags, potholders, and afghans. I love to design some of these myself or modify patterns I have to better suit me. I also am good at filet crochet and I used to make more doilies than I do now.

In addition to teaching you individual crochet stitches or stitch patterns, I can teach you all the foundational skills. These would be: the vocabulary of crochet, how to read yarn labels, how to choose crochet hooks you like to use, how to read written and graphic patterns, and anything else that will make you a wise shopper and informed crocheter.

Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, let's crochet together! I have good beginner projects for you to do, or we can tackle specific areas ...

About Alise

I picked up my first crochet hook when I was in about 6th grade. I had some written instructions for how to do it, and probably got as far as doing some chains. In High School, my interest re-emerged when I took a class called Creative Living, in which I formally learned to crochet (among other won

"We never thought we would have an International Master as our son's chess teacher.

We have a typical 7 year old. High on energy with zero patience. But Danial knows how to channel that energy into our son's lessons and helps him think strategically, analytically, and patiently. Our son's games have improved dramatically ever since he started with Danial. He has learned so many different startegies and techniques from him, and can easily identify them. Being so young himself, Danial is able to connect with kids at their level and make the lessons fun, yet challenging. Being so disciplined and focused himself, he is able to pass that on to our son. But most of all, he is inspiring. He always tells our son, "I did it, and you can too!". We couldn't have asked for a better teacher, and a role model. I highly recommend him."

"I am an extreme beginner (who tried unsuccessfully to self teach) and I was extremely happy with my first lesson. The instructor was very patient, and her instructions were clear and easy to follow. She easily answers any questions that come up. She made it seem completely possible to conquer the techniques that seemed so daunting on my own! I’m excited for lesson 2 :)"

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
