- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
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 improve 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!
Certified Knit and Crochet Instructor for Micheal's Craft stores Marlton NJ
Very clear and precise instructions. Very patient. Great personality and attitude!
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.
