I'm a passionate chess player with an extensive knowledge of chess theory who specializes in teaching beginner/intermediate (up to ~1600 USCF) players of all ages. Lessons will be personalized to focus on student's weaknesses and areas of needed improvement, as well as generalized chess instruction.

Hi! My name is Avalon. I have my bachelors degree in fashion design and I’ve been making clothes for almost 10 years but I’ve been passionate about fashion for as long as I can remember. I started teaching kids how to sew one summer and I’ve been in love with it ever since. I have experience in both pattern making and draping and I own my own business where I make custom designs for customers. I am comfortable teaching students at all levels, so feel free to reach out.

An overall great experience. Avalon is extremely relatable and explains even the most tedious things extremely well. Can’t wait to take more classes with her! Will definitely be a regular.

Omg I so love the way she teaches. I was in need of learning how to sew from someone else but she did not help me the way she should’ve. So I found out about Avalons Sewing class and I loved it. Highly recommend you all to take a class or two with this wonderful human being

I have been involved with paper crafts -- with an emphasis on ecological awareness -- for about three years, and I am thrilled to finally start teaching what I know! Within the first few lessons, you will know how to make a stellar 3D Father's Day card, craft an artistic paper fan to help you cool off this summer, and create adorable finger puppets. As time goes on, you will be able to design and use your own stencils, create decorative paper and envelopes, beautify jars with decoupage, and more! This class is catered for children, and it will include other creative activities like drawing, painting, and block printing. Most materials will be provided by me or can be found around your home.
