Chess lessons, for me, are unique in many ways. The main reason, is that I've always wanted to teach students the patients, skills, and techniques to achieve the levels they desire in Chess. Another reason, is I remember when I was a couple of years into my chess journey, those struggles to hit my goals. I've always wished I had more help back then myself when playing. I believe it takes a great teacher/student match to excel and create a strategy together. Then moving forward, it gives both of us the confidence to succeed together. Overall, I'd say my ultimate goal is to help others in any way I can in this wonderful game of Chess.

About Ray

I've recently signed up to the "Take Lessons' teaching program, to help others on their chess journey to achieve their goals. Als

I feel like I became a much more experienced chess player after Ray taught me.
Ron
Ray is an excellent teacher of chess. I really am grateful I contacted him a couple of years ago. Since then I have gained about 300 more points added to my rating! Ray has a great method to making me see the whole board during play. Now I’m able to detect many opponent’s strategies. Highly recommend !

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?

Rhiannon was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Looking forward to the next lessons!
Danielle
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 enjoy introducing others to the joy of creating a beautiful project using needle and thread.

I typically work with adidas cloth and DMC floss, but have also done more creative projects with students including on larger material such as burlap with yarn or projects traced on fabric then completed using thread or yarn.

My goal is to help you learn the basics and then explore creatively to create something unique and individual based on your personal preferences and end goal.

About Nicole

My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 11 years old, and after taking a few years off I picked up the hobby again in my 20s. Now in my 30s I am an avid knitter - there are always several projects on my needles (I need one I can travel with, one I can do while watching TV, and usually one I'm m
