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 Knife" of crafters. I have delved into nearly every craft and love passing this knowledge onto my students. For these reasons I have a diverse range of crafts I can teach, including: knitting, crochet, embroidery, hairpin lace, needle felting, and shuttle tatting. In addition to my passion for a variety of crafts, I also love teaching a variety of skill levels, from students beginning their first stitch to someone who wants to redesign a pattern.

With a positive attitude and a willingness to learn I can teach you any of a variety of crafts.

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!

Great crochet lesson from Claudette. I wanted more info on design and the lesson was tailored around specifics that I needed to help me design new garments and also improve my existing designs. Claudette is very friend and personable and hugely knowledgeable on crochet!

About Aimee

I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL.

Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready

to go!

About Kelove

I am a communications designer, I graduated with a bachelors from Pratt Institute 2019. I went to the HighSchool of Fashion Industries 2010 - 2014 with a design garment shown on WWD Magazine my senior year. I have always been interested in different art forms, like drawing, painting, sewing, music, movies and videos, designing logos and posters, clothing. I especially love the process of designing because of where you start and where you end. The future can be quite exciting. Learning shouldn’t be a chore, it should be fun and exciting in creative ways.

About Daniel

I love teaching pool, especially to total beginners. I’ve developed some unique training games that help you make rapid progress while having lots of fun. It’s got to be fun!! For that reason, I’m great teaching groups at parties.

Over a decade ago, I got myself a job as co-editor of what became a big seller in the pool world, Phil Capelle’s “Play Your Best 8-Ball.” In late 2015, the Professional Billiard Instructors Association granted me the rank of Recognized Instructor.

Please note: Lesson prices INCLUDE payment for my "table time." it's not extra; it's included.

I can’t tell you how much how gratifying it is to see students progress rapidly, scoring points, pocketing balls, and having a high quality experience. My students think of me as a very patient teacher, willing to go over things many times. Take a lesson with m

e and you won’t regret it.

Very interesting person who raised my interest multiple times throughout the lesson. Also taught me the mastery of an important fundamental of billiards that I looked past

My friend and I were just playing a game of 8 ball and Dan suggested a game call loop . We were impressed at how much we learned about the tangent line and how we had to focus at where the ball had to go in order to stay at the table. Dan really improved my game with just 3 hours of lesson today. He also showed us 2 other games and both required us to play differently and it made us focus on cue ball control. I was smiling each time as if I discovered fire. Dan would walk us through why and how. I had a great time If i have time to play again i would call dan no doubt.
