About Rob
I am an easy going, knowledgable and creative teacher. I strive to put the students and their personal needs first. I'm very aware that each student/person learns differently and I incorporate various strategies of learning into my lessons. There is a lot of humor and dialogue with my lessons, allowing my students the freedom to be themselves while playing.

As a school teacher, I have lots of experience in building student confidence and knowledge. If you aren't confident then you aren't progressing!

I like to record my students at different intervals of their education so they can hear the progress! I email a lesson recap after every lesson so that the student can see what we learned that week, including any notes/attachments for the student to review.

I also encourage my students to text/email/ or call with any questi
ons/concerns between lessons. This gives my students the ability to get through a challenging or difficult concept/strategy when its happening and not have to wait till the next lesson.

Rob is an amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter is very energetic, and has challenges staying on task. Rob makes every class fun, and adjusts his style or plan to keep her interested in the guitar lesson. I feel like she has learned a lot in a short period of time. I highly recommend Rob!

No show. I was set up and ready 10 minutes ahead of time, and 15 minutes after we were supposed to start I gave up. No call. no email, nothing. I called him at 6:20 to be told his day was screwed up by a funeral, and I told him my dog ate my homework. Pathetic. I knew I had a lesson, he must have known he had one to give, and no notification whatsoever. I don't do business like this.

Courtney has been such an inspirational teacher. She has taken me from absolute zero to feeling like I can actually do something with confidence now. This during only two lessons. Courtney has a very gracious and friendly teaching style with me which I find very patient and comforting while learning something challenging.

This was my first lesson with Courtney and am already looking at the schedule for possible next lessons. Courtney is very patient and encouraging. Thanks to her I have confidence that I will actually be able to learn knitting which seemed impossible before tonight. Thank you Courtney! I am so happy to have found a teacher like you. See you very soon.

About Rachel
I'm an accountant by day who self-taught myself how to use the Cricut. My 13-year-old daughter wanted to learn but she didn't have the patience to learn on her own so I taught myself so I could teach her. Then my friends got Cricuts and they weren't sure where to start or what to do next. I have coached dozens of people now online and in person thru the ins and outs of the Cricut. I'd love to help others explore how to get the most out of their Cricut to make gifts for family and friends that are so personal and customized they are truly​ treasured.

From the beginning stages of sewing to the more advanced stages I am able to walk you through the process. I use store patterns in addition to creating my own patterns through self drafting.

I'm a life-long learner and avid seamstress. I have been sewing since I was a young child and learned from my grandmother basic hand sewing. From there I learned other techniques through books, trial and error, and hands-on classes how to sew professional looking garments, quilts and bags.

I love everything about sewing from the ideas to the creation. It is a slow process and can be a lot of fun if you take your time and can enjoy the process. I want to teach others this amazing skill.
