About Tiffani
Hey There! My name is Tiffani and I can't wait to meet you and get you started on your own path to learning English, writing a novel, or reducing your accent. I have been a Freelance Writer since 1996 and an educator since 2005. I'm the author of four books and thousands of articles and news stories, and I'm certified in ESL and CASAS testing.

I'm also an experienced needle, designer and teacher. I have been teaching crochet for more than 10 years, and I'd love to teach you how to make something beautiful using this easy, elegant craft.

My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine.

I have a flexible teaching style, and my bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science and my 15+ year history in working with students with special needs, allows me to approach lessons from many differ
ent angles. No matter your difference, I am the teacher who can help you reach your goals because your goals are my goals.

I have been teaching private lessons since 2005. I'm available most days of the week (check out my calendar), and I can work with you online through Skype, in person in the Allentown area at a coffeehouse or your home. Contact me for specific details, and I'll get back to you right away.

Learning a new language, or how to launch your freelance writing career, can be daunting, but you have everything within you to be successful. I'm here to help share my gifts, education, and experience with you. Contact me today, so I can help you reach your goals and realize your dream. Blessings!

About Tom
Hello everyone, I'm Tom.

I have always loved teaching people things that I enjoy, sharing my experience with others, and helping people realize their own potential.

I am a musician, a martial artist, and a general IT guru.

Music and martial arts runs in my family, and I was raised around them from a very young age.

As a child, I was always fascinated with computers, and had to know everything I could about them.

My teaching style is a bit unorthodox, focusing more on philosophy and personal introspection than traditional "memorize and practice" methods, and is very mind, body, and spirit oriented.

Feel free to ask me questions for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1987 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 2121 for chess.com blitz rating. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well. I recently won the 2018 Philadelphia Open Chess Tournament.

I am currently coaching several students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating
.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecular/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

Matt as my first chess coach and has greatly increased my understanding of chess. My games are now competitive with players 400 to 600 rating points above me and I feel I am improving every week. Funny how much I can learn quickly after playing for forty years, with just a few lessons.

About John
Here goes...
I am a chess teacher, tutor, singer, and Shakespearean actor in NYC! I guess you could say I wear a lot of hats.

I graduated with honors in 2009 from New York University with a BFA in Drama. I've been professionally teaching since 2012, but I have always loved sharing the game of chess with anyone who wants to learn (just ask my friends).

Students can expect to face new challenges and to improve each and every week. I am happy to work with students of all different ages and experience levels. As a teacher in the New York Public School system, I know how to make chess simple and friendly enough for Kindergartners, Senior Citizens, and everyone in between! And as an active tournament player (current rating 2000), I can offer great insight into the needs of any skill level. I am thrilled to work with ambitious tournament playe
rs and those who just want to learn how to beat their friends :).

Chess is a wonderful, challenging game, but I truly believe that anyone can learn to play if they are motivated. Come work with me and discover your new obsession!

About Terry
I learned to sew as a teenager. It became a hobby that I became passionate about that grew into a business when I decided to take an early retirement. I’m interested in helping others learn how to perfect their skills and and be proud of their work.

I’m familiar with the challenges that sewing can present and knows the patience that it can take. Some time you may need that extra help or opinion on how to get something done correctly. I would like to share my experience and lessons learned with you.

About Rachel
I am a certified instructor yet always the student. I love to learn new skills so that I can pass them on to my students. Working 1 summer at camp defined me as a teacher. I am patient and understanding of all learning styles. No 2 students learn the same and I cater my lesson to each person individually.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was 8, but I didn't learn to knit until I was an adult. I quickly surpassed both my "teachers" to the point that I had to seek out a master instructor, and even figure things out on my own.

My beginner student project becomes your everyday go to usable project, a washcloth. Many make several before moving on to other projects such as hats, scarfs, blankets, socks and even easy, one piece sweaters!

I have researched the science behind yarn crafting and can show you how knitting and crochet can imp
rove grades in all levels of school, retrain older brains to focus, improve memory of the aged and even decrease physical therapy times post surgery; even hand and arm surgery!

I work with addiction counselors to help those afflicted recover faster, and find a healthy outlet that stays with you for the rest of your life.

My students describe me as the teacher they wished they found first. Let me teach you!

Had a wonderful experience with Rachel. She has helped me to understand and read patterns better. In addition she has helped to establish a better tension on my knitting (and crochet) so that the patterns fit the designated stitch gauge better.

Rachel is an incredibly capable knitting teacher. She has patience as well as clear guidance in a learning situation. Whatever task, stitch or just overall learning to knit is your goal, Rachel is entirely confident that she can help you achieve it.
Nothing seemed too complicated for her to teach me to do.

About Laura
I'm a self-taught knitter, and I started knitting over ten years ago. I also crochet, and I've been doing that for over fifteen years now! I love learning new techniques and pushing the limits of what I can do! I've made tons of scarves, hats, and mitts, but I've also made blankets, ornaments, and others.

I teach students that have never knitted/crocheted before, or have experience and just want help with a specific pattern, or want to push the limits and try something new!

Want to make something as a holiday gift? We can pick a simple project and have it done in time for the holidays!

I love knitting patterns with interesting textures, and my favorite style is mosaic colorwork!

Reach out and we can figure out a plan that works well for you!

Laura was beyond patient with me. At first my hand coordination was pretty terrible. I had a hard time holding onto the needle and draping the yarn correctly over my hand but, Laura kept reminding me, this is my first time and it’s going to take practice. After my lessons she would give me homework and YouTube addresses where I could look if I got hung up on what to do next. Laura is a true teacher and cares about your progress!!
