My passion is teaching Pool, known as Pocket Billiards. I have developed two unique training games that enables rapid progress on technique, aiming, pocketing balls and cue ball control. Most of all, they’re fun! If you have any interest in pool, take a lesson with me. You won’t regret it.

PS. I am an ideal teacher for children, with lots of experience under my belt.

PSS. Please note that the price here does not include my table time, which the student pays at the pool hall.

See you at the table!

Daniel was incredibly helpful in providing a lesson for myself and my Dad. He assessed our level of play quickly and catered the lesson accordingly. Daniel created a great game for us to practice on our own. Very happy with the overall experience.

Ok I literally just ended my lesson with Trivia and I wanted to make sure I wrote this review before I forgot. She is AMAZING. Her personality is so fun to start. No question is stupid and she REALLY knows her stuff. I had a project in mind that I've been wanting to work on for cosplay but I just had no idea how to approach the concept. I had messaged Trivia in advance to see if that was something she could help me with since this wasn't exactly a typical sewing lesson. She responded incredibly quick and said it was something we could do. She was able to fit me into a short notice class and broke everything down for me making what I thought would be an overwhelming project seem so much more simple now. I can't wait to start and I will definitely be in touch with her again the further I progress.
And just one other cool tidbit. I am in California and she is in Texas which I thought just added a little something more special to the lesson.
Thank you Trivia! Can't wait to talk again soon.
Toni
Really takes her time to explain ever detail from beginning to end highly recommend her for anyone
Simone
Thanks again for providing such clear & concise instructions. I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson & am feeling more confident about sewing.

As a sewing instructor, I aim to give beginner and intermediate students the time, attention, and encouragement needed to complete their projects so that they have the best experience possible. My goal is to teach you at your individual pace and level so you are comfortable with your sewing materials and equipment. You will be introduced to the sewing supplies needed at your instructional level such as commercial patterns, sewing kits, sewing machines, and more.

Online students receive a introductory call to discuss project goals and materials needed prior to class.

Look forward to creating with you all!
