Vena was very knowledgeable in all of the areas of sewing I had questions in. She drew on her 15 years' professional experience to give me great pointers for the clothing line I am getting up and running; was patient, and fun! Thank you Vena!
Meret
Vena is very knowlegable about patternmaking and haute couture techniques. Besides, that she also helps me to see exactly were difficulties could come up, so that I wouldn't get into the usual beginner troubles!

As a person, she is calm and positiv minded. If you search for someone that knows a lot, has experience in the industry and it super precise- I can really recommend her!

My daughter loves how fun Ms Erin was!
Gina
I am an extreme beginner (who tried unsuccessfully to self teach) and I was extremely happy with my first lesson. The instructor was very patient, and her instructions were clear and easy to follow. She easily answers any questions that come up. She made it seem completely possible to conquer the techniques that seemed so daunting on my own! I’m excited for lesson 2 :)
Adele
Erin was a great teacher, very helpful!

"Atousa has worked with my young son for some time now. I have seen a vast improvement in his chess skills. Equally as important, he has developed a strong ambition to learn and improve. It warms my heart to hear him ask if I want to play a game of chess instead of him asking if he can play video games. Cannot recommend Atousa enough. She is wonderful."

"I've used Athan for several lessons now and he's become a friend. Happy to write this review for him (though I secretly don't want other players to get the same coaching :)). I can't recommend him enough as he's saved me tons of money and has made me much more. Athan is so smart and analytical. I already knew how to play before we started but I wasn't winning much if at all, in my home games and in casinos both in cash games and in tournaments. Athan came with a completely custom lesson plan and helped break apart how to think about the game in general, how to play players, the math, specific leaks/weak spots, and different situations. Just try one lesson and I think you'll see the same."
