I have been crocheting since I was seven years old. I have made hundreds of projects. I specialize in baby apparel but I also make specialty items such as: purses, scarves, beanies, headbands, and blankets. There isn't much I cannot make with a pattern by my side.
I have been teaching Piano for 20 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major, you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.
*** Lesson Details *** In my opinion, piano is the hardest instrument to learn, but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping t
hem love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess incorrect performances in an honest, but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that, though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics and gain the ability to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.
*** Travel Equipment *** I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.
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.
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.
Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!

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!

Erin is an outstanding instructor. She is very, very knowledgeable. I have a pattern and it was poorly written. She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor.

Erin is a great explainer and helps any way she can!
I'm a former officer of the New York City Crochet Guild, and a current member of the Crochet Guild of America, a national organization dedicated specifically to crochet. I'm also a Craft Yarn Council Certified Crochet Teacher for over a decade; I earned my certificate and pin by donating hours to teach seniors. I learned the basics from my Mom, for whom I continue to crochet in her honor.
We will begin with a skills assessment and start with a basics refresher to get you back up to speed in no time, offering encouragement and lots of tips, tricks and tidbits along the way.
Crochet has come a long way baby! It's a great hand craft, good for motor skills, soothing for the soul and practical, too! Think of the one-of-a-kind gifts you could make for yourself and the special people in your lives!
Crochet is a part of my life that I enjoy doing, sharing, promoting and teaching. To the southpaws...you don't have to feel 'left' out...I can teach you :)
If you need to get back on the crochet wagon, let's refresh your skills and add some more to your arsenal!
Whether you are a beginner or looking to improve your skill, learn in a stress free, patient environment.
I have been crocheting, knitting and sewing since I was 8 years old. I studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and design knitted, crochet and sewing garment.
Over the years I have taught adults and children and currently teach at an after-school program. Previously, I taught both group and private lessons at my yarn Slip Stitch Needlecraft. My years of teaching has give me insight on different learning styles, and adapt my lesson to each student so that they can learn in and enjoyable, stress-free manner.
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!

So patient and very nice. Hands on. And the i aslo learned about the history of yarn and the varous kinds. I would highly recommend.
My youth was spent in Eastern Europe which meant cold winters. With that came mom’s teaching on how to make a scarf, a blanket, socks and sweaters. Though nowadays it may be counterproductive to knit, there is no better way to show someone you love than something that is handmade by you. I’ll teach you what it takes to get started. Book your sessions now and let’s start crocheting.
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so. R is a medical doctor, a psychologist, a chemist and biologist. Words can't even define how great of a man he is and how grateful I am to learn from him, too. For instance, about a famous language called "esperanto", a language created in the late 19th century.
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested studen
t who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).
I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.
I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.
I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages (and proper grammar rules which highly reflect on one's education) by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration and health.
I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.
Come & Crochet with me! Depending on your skill set I have a Beginners, intermediate, & Advanced projects for us to work on. Whether it be crochet clothes were working on, or Holliday Decorations, you'll always be learning something new in my unique crochet along classes.
Hi, we are a mother daughter duo teaching crochet to women around the world! We want to see women empowered everywhere! We want to see you grow a business like we have, and eventually take your crochet to the next level!
I keep it simple. Instead of hammering you with words you do not understand. I show you the way I learned how to crochet. I start off small and basically learn my way as I continue to crochet. I am still learning but I had to start somewhere.
I am a military veteran that love arts and crafts. I enjoy learning how to do different things like crocheting, making jewelry, drawing, learning foreign languages. I love to try anything when it comes to something I never considered learning how to do. Crocheting took over me and I stay on YouTube trying to better my craft.
