I love cooking and I am very enthusiastic about it. I still get excited over a beautiful cut of beef or the perfume of fresh cut basil. My teaching stems from my natural joy of cooking and using fresh ingredients. I'm patient, fun and I truly enjoy teaching my students to cook.

I also offer small party cooking classes where I teach 3 course dinners. These classes are limited to groups of 3 and are booked by using 3 (60) minute sessions in one evening.

Groups between 4 and 6 are booked by using the 4 (60) minute blocks for one evening.

I cook almost every day. As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

In my classes you can learn how to make simple Italian family styles dinners for those evenings that you do not have a lot of time to cook or you can learn how to make a ...

About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her! I couldn't have been happier.

The class was a blast. My wife and I gave each other a gift to take a cooking class from Dave Hammer. The lessons weren't too complicated and even an old guy like me was able to do it. A great date night for any couple. Highly recommended.

I am passionate to work in a environment where I can apply my passions for food and people. I graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education, New York NY October 2015 with the hopes of one day becoming a teacher in the school and until that day I want to share the love and knowledge I have of food. I have taken cooking classes since I was a child and always loved working one to one with someone who loves creating something as special as food. I have worked in many high end restaurants and bakeries , I have learned so many tips and tricks that I would love to share.

About gabriella
I am extremely passionate for all kinds of food especially healthy food and sweets I have worked in restaurants as the pastry chef and as a line cook , I love teaching what I have learned in culinary school and in professional kitchens . Any one can cook and be proud of their skills in the kitchen as long as they have basic knowledge of what works together. I also have worked with disabled children in schools teaching basic things such as cookies and simple cake. I absolutely love seeing how someone can grow so fast in the kitchen making beautiful creations with some guidance, I have trained dish washers to become line cooks its incredible to show someone how amazing they can be as long as they believe that they can.
