My sewing curriculum is designed so that first time learners will feel motivated to keep on sewing. The first three projects are usually completed within the first 3-4 lessons. After learning how to operate the student's machine, together we will make a draw string bag, a skirt (for a doll, for a student or someone else) and a stuffed animal. These first three projects lay an important foundation; students learn basic and useful skills they will use over and over again as they begin to choose their own projects that we work on together.

I believe that if the student- whether a child or an adult- enjoys sewing and sees what they are capable of from the start, they will be more eager to learn more and take on new challenges.

Currently developing sewing worksheets for children.

Instead of teaching common openings that everyone knows about, I can teach tricky openings that are filled with traps. I use many different openings on Chess.com and confuse opponents. I also teach tactics and am rated over 2300 on tactics.

About Hagen

Normally, chess teachers will teach you about classic openings such as the Ruy Lopez or the fried liver. However, I teach uncommon openings that are actually easily playable. If you are tricky in chess I strongly recommend you play my openings.

Vinny has given lessons to my son for 3 years in the Chicagoland area. He started in 7th grade. My son made the highest level of Wind Ensemble when entering high school as a freshman. I highly recommend Vinny. Vinny works on your child's school music and he also gives a lesson that you need to accomplish. Vinny is a likable person, great with kids, he has this "cool" vibe to him that makes you smile and the kids relate to him very well. I suggest you try him out!

Vincent was a great instructor, gave my son all the resources he needed at all times, was super flexible with scheduling and very dependable. Highly recommended!!

I have been teaching crochet since 2013, with levels ranging from beginner to advanced. I can teach students the basic stitches to some of my favorite, more advanced techniques, including crocheting in the round, charts, lace, and colorwork.

About Rhiannon

My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same. I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knif

Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!
Danielle
I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

I have already improved my USCF rating by 372 points in 3 months!! After having tried 3-4 other chess teachers, Sam's been the absolute best and will stick with him!"

"Matt is a great person both intellectually and personality wise. I have known him for around 4 months and he has a unique approach to the way he teaches. He uses real world scenarios to provide another angle to approaching the game. I have increased my level 100 points since working with Matt. Matt also took the time to analyze the games we had played and provided great feedback so I can understand where I was weak and when I was in a strong position. The only downside is that Matt lives 4.5 hours away. I know in person would provide even greater experience. Matt is also very positive and genuine. I believe you will become a better chess player if you work with Matt.
