Overview

Hey There! My name is Tiffani and I can't wait to meet you and get you started on your own path to making beautiful crochet and knit items! I've been a successful freelance writer and needle artist for more than 20 years. My articles have appeared in magazines and newspapers, like Yahoo! News and Pennsylvania Magazine, and my patterns have been published by The Daily Fibre and on Ravelry. I have my own needle arts business called Ani Burnett Designs (new website in the works, but you can find my blog at https://aniburnett.wordpress.com or my Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/534819483379718/).

I have a flexible teaching style, and my bachelors degree in Cognitive Science and my 15+ year history in working with students with special needs, allows me to approach lessons from many different 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 Hava Java or your home. Contact me for specific details, and I'll get back to you right away.

Learning to knit or crochet (or both!) is so easy, it's almost unbelievable. Contact me today, so I can help you reach your goals and realize your dream. Blessings!

Tiffani Taught My Daughter To Love Writing!

Tiffani has been my daughter's writing tutor for several month's now, and she has helped her to overcome her obstacles and become the writer she never thought she could be!

Tiffani is professional and punctual, and she curtails each lesson directly to my daughter's needs.

I highly recommend her!
