Hi! My name is Avalon. I have my bachelors degree in fashion design and I’ve been making clothes for almost 10 years but I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember. I started teaching kids how to sew one summer and I’ve been in love with it ever since. I have experience in both pattern making and draping and I own my own business where I make custom designs for customers. I am comfortable teaching students at all levels, so feel free to reach out.

Joshua has been a great teacher for my 11 year old son! My son is learning how to play the saxophone and even though he's had no experience playing any type of instruments, he's learning a lot because Joshua's a great teacher. He's patient and kind with him and I would recommend him to anyone that's looking to learn something new!
Calista
Josh is very professional and serious about teaching chess. He teaches my 9 year old daughter and she is learning fast. I asked him to make sure my daughter states the rules before each move and he does a great job at that. He is very nice and we feel very comfortable with him. He doesn't joke around or waste time. I like that especially when dealing with kids. We will continue our classes with him. My daughter will take a few mins to get started and he starts the time when she's ready.
Matt
Josh is a no nonsense teacher. I liked that we got right into it the first lesson so to speak. We had to use FaceTime instead of zoom so it was a little hard for me to hear, but he was very patient and repeated instructions many times.

Hindi being a National Language Of India. Most of the parents in the USA are willing to make their children Hindi literate along with communication. I take the privilege to help them to reach their goal. As Hindi is a foreign language, it will certainly help high schoolers to raise their credits.
