I am bubbly, outgoing, patient and FUN! I love sewing and teaching. If you have always wanted to learn to sew or take your sewing to the next level I am the teacher for you!

As an Army wife we could not afford certain luxuries like drapes. I learned to sew in order to make each of my houses feel like home. I also made bows and dresses for my daughter. Sewing has become my passion. I am also an early childhood educator, I love teaching.

Teaching sewing classes brings my two passions together.

Let’s start with the obvious first: when learning how to sew, you develop many skills such as understanding a pattern, operating a sewing machine or getting to grips with the specialist terms. But there’s so much more to sewing!

Sewing has taught me so many life skills and invaluable lessons:

Planning
Good things take time
Attention to detail
Sometimes things don't turn out the way you had planned or hoped

If you pick me as your sewing instructor I promise to teach you how to sew and how ...

Ken has a wealth of knowledge. He offers handouts to review and presents lessons with slides to instruct using actual bridge hands. He provides not only the rules for the game but also the mental steps one undertakes in applying them.

When I first started getting lessons from Dipankar, I was rated around 1000 on chess.com. Since then, I've climbed up to 1500! Dipankar has a wonderful way of teaching. He lets you figure things out, and helps you along the way when you get stuck. He's given me great opening recommendations, game analyses (my games and master games), as well as many other resources to continue improving outside the lessons. Dipankar has helped me improve a TON!
Aaron
I have been taking lessons from Dipankar for five weeks. My game has already shown improvement. When I started my rating was 1050, now I am at 1250. That is a significant improvement. His lessons are engaging and he provides a lot of feedback. I recently won a difficult game using the tactics and pointers he provided in a recent lesson. I was elated. I recognized the advancement in my game. This coupled with Dipankar's tutelage continues to encourage me to strive for my goal of attaining a 2300 rating. I look forward to see what else I can achieve under his guidance.
Namratha
We were looking for a chess coach for our 6 year old son. Due to the pandemic, we did not want to take him for in person classes. We were a little skeptical about online chess. But wanted to give it a try.

We got to know Dipankar through TakeLessons. He uses a digital chess board on the screen to play and teach chess. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is very prompt. He adjusts the lessons according to the learning speed of our son. Overall, very pleased with the lessons.

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …

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? She allowed all this uncertainty to affect her design work – she had difficulty finishing pieces she was working on, starting new projects, and getting …

It took lots of trial and perseverance to overcome challenges, and carve out a successful career. The First Step is to Make Mistakes! Many of my students are worried about making mistakes.
