About Candace

I'm a classical violinist, a loving single mother, and a independent business owner for life, health and accident insurance through AFLAC from New York. I am a very accomplished musician performing in many venues and events such as the Long Island String Festival, NYC All County Music Festivals, Valley stream District 13 Music Festival, NY All State Concert, NYSMMA Music competitions, and yes even Carnegie Hall with the NY Metropolitan Youth Principle Orchestra 1st Violin. Ive learned that nothing of value in life comes without blood sweat and tears but it is worth it.

The things I love most in life are my son and providing for our family. On week days, you'll usually find me prospecting potential clients to help with their benefits for employees in any type of weather, for my independent business through AFLAC. On the weekends I like

to take my son with my dogs (sometimes) to the park, museums, and church or teach him the various wonders of life.

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

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.

About Marie

I have been an educator for more than ten years. In that time, I've taught and tutored English, Language Arts and Spanish to students from elementary to PhD level. I also help students study for the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests and coach students through the college and graduate school application process. I love teaching and learning. I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to my students.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in a few words : learning should be fascinating, relevant, individualized and fun. Helen Keller said, “ A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.” My goal is to help my students ask the questions that will lead them to deeper understanding. The poet Mark Van Doren said, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” In our lessons, I will help you make discoveries that will ins

pire you to keep learning.

When I’m not teaching, I love reading, exploring the California coast, writing poetry, meditation and singing loudly.

About Kevan

Hi! I'm an actor, director, and playwright who loves sharing my passion for theatre with people of all ages. I am primarily an acting teacher specializing in the Meisner technique. I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma with a BFA in Acting and Texas Tech University with an MFA in Theatre Performance. I have had the opportunity to train from some of the country's most exceptional theatre artists, and bring a wide array of tools to my work as an acting coach.

Acting is hard work, but it should be fun! I'll teach you specific techniques or we can work on specific material.
Students can expect a highly personalized experience; I like to "meet the student where they are", serving as a guide and a coach rather than an all-knowing guru. Whatever your experience, skill, or comfort level with performing may be, I will work with

you using the tools in my toolbox to make you a more present, spontaneous, and engaging performer. I teach students to better understand their character and make spontaneous choices, living fully in the moment as an actor instead of worrying about "what's my next line?" or "do I look silly?"

Let's find what's unique about you and find ways to use it!

I can also work with students on healthy use of voice, dialects, and movement. I specialize in French, Russian, Cockney, Received Pronunciation (RP), Southern American, and Irish dialects. I'm excited to work with you!

About Karson

I am a graduate student in a Department of Religious Studies. I began my graduate career in Spanish language studies but rekindled my relationship with religious studies, which I also pursued in undergraduate school. I studied Spanish throughout high school and found a true love for it once I reached college. I love the bonds people create when learning different languages because it requires trust and a keen sense of compassion. I have been to Peru twice, which has also broadened my understanding and use of Spanish! In the near future, I hope to enrich my language rolodex by learning Italian. I suppose one might say I have a love for Romance Languages!

About Rachel

Hello! I have a deep desire to share my passion with foreign languages with as many people as possible! Spanish and Greek are languages that are incredibly close to my heart, and I can help you get speaking with practical and useful lessons. I've been teaching languages for many years and am willing to help people of all skill levels. I have spent so much time immersed in Spanish and Greek culture, and have unique perspective and knowledge. My grandfather was an immigrant from Greece, so the language means a great deal to me. Whether Spanish or Greek, I can assure you that you will be speaking the language if you want to!

I am not impatient or judgmental, and I will be there to encourage you in every lesson. No question is wrong and I will answer as many as you like!

"English is my second language. It’s not easy finding the right teacher. But I’m glad i’v Founded it. He’s a great teacher!"
Kayla
"I’m so lucky to have found Dannia! As I had not spoken Spanish in quite a long time, I was very nervous for my lessons with her. She reassured me that I
would be having so much fun and there was no need to be nervous.

As an adult who studied Spanish in school, I really want to continue learning how to be conversational. Dannia is patient and super friendly— she is very organized in her lesson plans and objectives and I feel very comfortable with her. She guides me to the best version of what I want to say and always lets me know when there is opportunity to say something differently or better.

I cannot wait to continue our lessons together in my quest to be fluent!"

Sophie
"Very nice teacher! She has good learning methods, and is very skilled in Portuguese."
Moe
"A great teacher who is enthusiastic, very smart and makes class fun!"
Denise
"I took lessons with Sabrina over several years in small group settings. She always made the meetings fun and addressed the group's individual needs. She
was always prepared with great ideas. Sabrina gave me confidence to engage in conversation in Italy on my early trips and then helped me prepare for a 2-week course at a language school in Italy. I was able to get into one of the more advanced classes, thanks in large part to Sabrina's tutoring. I was sad to move away from Sabrina's location and the opportunity for classes but am happy to see the online option."
