About Dovile R.

I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Kept cancelling. Unresponsive to my texts. Not my type of teacher as she was very unproffesional.

Dovile was great! She arrived on time. I wanted to brush up on my skills on how to make a pattern from an old dress. She is an excellent instructor. She explained things very well. By the end of the 2 hours I had a made a pattern and cut it out. I felt we accomplished a lot without rushing. It was definitely a 5-star experience.

My 11 year old daughter had a great experience with Dovile. So nice and convenient for her to come to our home. Our first lesson was an assessment of how much my daughter knew about the machine, a general overview of how to use and conversations between the two to decide on what to make. Loved that Dovile gave homework each time(make a bobbin, cut the material for next week, etc.) My daughter made a denim purse and gained skills and confidence inputting out our machine. Thanks, Dovile!

Only one lesson so far..great experience. So nice to have someone come to our home and work on our machine with our tools. Dovile was very laid back and worked well with my 11 year old daughter in getting to know our machine (and each her interests). They put together a plan (with homework) for the next lesson.
