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 Nancy
Hi!! I have been a makeup artist for 7 years and I LOVE what I do! I believe that everyone can conquer makeup application and achieve a beautiful makeup.

I truly believe beauty is everywhere; I love bringing out the beauty in every person, enhancing faces’ natural attributes. I have been described as very creative, and love thinking outside the box. As a freelance makeup artist, I am passionate about makeup and enjoy every aspect of it. I offer professional makeup services for weddings, photo shoots, runway, corporate and social events, Halloween makeup, and others. Personalized, corporate and/or fun makeup classes are also available.

My makeup skills include traditional makeup, airbrush, runway, fashion, prosthetics and latex (special effects makeup). I provide services on-location, and have worked for different model agenc
ies like Insomnia Models, and Pasarela Senorial as their lead makeup instructor and executive makeup artist. I have worked with renowned Puerto Rican photographers Abdias Cintron, Robert Quiros, and others. Additionally, I worked with Punky Accessories Designers. My last job was being part of the Dollface Agency beauty team in Savanah, GA. I've been working nationwide delivering great product and customer satisfaction.

I love to teach students to improve their skills, as well as, conquering the technique and application of makeup.

ls. If Stress Management, Pain Reduction, Safe Strength and Flexibility Fitness Training based on 5000 year old Practices mixed with the latest scientific knowledge and Guided Spiritual Meditation are your interests, I look forward to meeting you.

Steve contacted me before my first lesson to discuss what I expected from the session. I had only scheduled one lesson and wanted to try it out for myself and because I am enrolled in a graduate study program; I needed to try an alternative healing session so I could complete an assignment. I loved that Steve explained the movements and how they affected the internal body, mind, and spirit. He is a wealth of information and I plan on continuing to learn from him.

I haven't even taken the lesson yet, but am struck by his professionalism in reaching out to me by phone to discuss my knowledge and expectations of Qigong. You know the feeling you get when you talk to someone about a subject and you have an inclination about their depth of knowledge of it? No doubt, Steve knows exactly what he is talking about and with his extensive experience and personality, is a teacher that really wants to explain things in a way you really comprehend.

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.

About Cherelynn
Hello! Hola! Buon Giorno! I'm a makeup artist by trade but an encourager by heart. I've been doing makeup as a career for quite some time and in it, I've had the chance to work on everything and everyone from celebrity clients to homeless ladies during a mission outreach. My primary goal in teaching is to touch a heart and instill confidence and encouragement to my client while building positive self esteem through the art of makeup. Every person has a beauty to them and can learn simple techniques to improve their appearance as well as their outlook on life.

Makeup can give a job applicant the boost they need to ace the interview!
Makeup can give a bride peace and confidence in her wedding day.
Makeup can make an executive look more vibrant in corporate headshots.
Makeup can make a young girl feel extra special at her birthday pa
rty or prom.

Makeup can do so much more than add a bit of color to your face, it can actually add hope to your day!

It is my humble honor to walk this beauty journey with you. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration and going forward, let me know what I can do for you.
