As with crocheting, I can teach a range of students, from those with the beginning desire to learn to students wishing to hone specific techniques. My favorite techniques include in the round and double pointed needles, because who doesn't want to learn to avoid more sewing?

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

I have taught fashion sewing in the NYC garment district for 11 years. Students ranged from teens to adults, aspiring designers, those interested in better-fitted clothes or in saving money with simple alterations. The method we use is very simple working on basic projects to increased skills as projects progress. I love sewing because it’s therapeutic and rewarding. Getting a compliment on something I’ve made is rewarding especially when followed with, “Thank you. I made it.” Sewing truly is something you can control when the world feels out of control.

When I teach classes it is so important to me that everyone completes a project no matter what. Learning a new skill takes requires willingness, a great teacher with patience and a cheerleader.

I'm a passionate chess player with an extensive knowledge of chess theory who specializes in teaching beginner/intermediate (up to ~1600 USCF) players of all ages. Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction. Chess is a great platform to improve critical thinking skills and one's ability to focus, as well as a great way to have fun. My lessons will help you or your children gain an understanding of the art of chess and improve your confidence and ability to play the game.

I had a great session with Kyle. He helped me better understand decision making in the opening of the game, and talked me through different ways on how to focus on other aspects of the game. Meeting up with him was easy. I enjoyed my lesson, and he seems like an overall cool dude.

The lesson went very excellently. Kyle was prepared yet flexible. Most importantly I learned.

Kyle is an amazing instructor! In one session he went over six or seven studies and allowed me to try and work out complicated winning ideas in different positions, and then showed me the correct ones and more importantly, the ideas that a chess player should take away from them. I can genuinely say that even in that one session, I feel like Kyle helped me substantially improve as a chess player.

"Rhiannon is such a great teacher! She is super patient and helpful, and really knows how to motivate her students. Her work is very inspiring and makes me want to really improve my crochet lace skills. She taught me how to use crochet to make lace motifs, and now I feel comfortable doing it all on my own."

She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor."

5 Questions Every Jewelry Designer Should Have An Answer For

Interested in trying your hand at jewelry design? Before you begin, consider the following 5 questions, as outlined by Nashville jewelry designer and teacher Warren F... Susan felt very unsure of herself. And unsure of her jewelry. Would people like it? Was the color mix appropriate? Was the construction secure? Was the price smart and fair?
