I've been crocheting for 15 years and I've never had a student leave a lesson unhappy. Within the first hour or so, you'll be able to do the basics of a chain and a single crochet and as time goes on you' will be able to make almost anything and read patterns. I specialize in crochet toys, but have also made blankets, hats, booties, art installations, etc. You will require yarn and a hook for your lessons. If you wish to practice at home you can purchase both of these in most craft stores for under $5. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I look forward to getting you hooked on crochet.

Erin is an outstanding instructor. She is very, very knowledgeable. I have a pattern and it was poorly written. She was able to untangle it and explain it to me so that I can work on it independently. She is very patient. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning knitting, stuck on a pattern, or want to expand on their knitting skills. She has a lot of knowledge and can explain and impart this knowledge very well. She is a truly great instructor.

Tyra is amazing. It was a bit hard to see virtually. We had to do FaceTime because your platform did not work which I believe was not a problem on my side but yours. Nonetheless I am looking forward to my next lesson. She’s a gem

Tyra is a wonderful teacher. My son (10) does lessons once per week. He has struggled in the group setting at school, but with Tyra he looks forward to his lesson every week and loves his time with her. Tyra has great methods of instruction, she knows her stuff, she's funny, kind, straightforward.

We love Tyra. She teaches in a selective high school for the arts, so is used to getting the best out of kids. And I love that she comes to our home!
I'm a former officer of the New York City Crochet Guild, and a current member of the Crochet Guild of America, a national organization dedicated specifically to crochet. I'm also a Craft Yarn Council Certified Crochet Teacher for over a decade; I earned my certificate and pin by donating hours to teach seniors. I learned the basics from my Mom, for whom I continue to crochet in her honor.
We will begin with a skills assessment and start with a basics refresher to get you back up to speed in no time, offering encouragement and lots of tips, tricks and tidbits along the way.
Crochet has come a long way baby! It's a great hand craft, good for motor skills, soothing for the soul and practical, too! Think of the one-of-a-kind gifts you could make for yourself and the special people in your lives!

I am a full time online English Teacher, and a previous daycare owner for 10+years. I have tutored many of preschool and elementary students, with math, reading, phonics, writing etc for years and my students academic grades have improved tremendously; within the first few lessons. My teaching philosophy, is that learning requires more than just educating someone or acquiring new knowledge. In my opinion, I feel, that it is more so rather, are entire inner and outer circle of well being; which is why my approach to teaching is from an aural, visual and curiosity perspective. Clay Patrick Bedford, once said: “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives” My teaching techniques are always challenging. However, very exciting, interesting, with a blast of fun and lots of activities; very suitable and appropriate for your child's grade level. I always assess, recognize strengths, weaknesses, and structure my lessons accordingly. This helps me to monitor the students’ progress and provided insight to their expectations. Whenever my students learn something new, I stress how much they have achieved so far, rather than pointing out how much more they need to learn. During my teaching experience I have observed that a confident learner progresses more quickly than a discouraged one. My number one goal, is your child's success. Let's aim for the stars!
I learned crocheting since I was a little girl. I can make hats, gloves, scarves, decoration stuffs... I love to share my hobbies with all my students!
I was born in Vietnam and just came to America 2 years ago. Teaching is my passion, both Vietnamese and Crocheting . My students said that I am very patient, enthusiastic and responsible! And the improvement of students is my happiness!
I am a very back-to-basics teacher. Crochet is a craft where learning the absolute basics will allow you to create incredible things. Just using the basics of chaining, single crochet, double crochet, color-changing, and crochet in the round, I was able to invent patterns for and create over a dozen unique pillows for my friends. Learning a stitch like a half-double back post crochet may sound impressive, and can allow you to create a unique design, but it's not necessary to make something beautiful.
I will walk you through the basics of crochet and teach you to make a few basic things to get a feel for the craft. I can also assist you in reading a pattern you may have found somewhere, as well as trying to determine how something you found was made so you can try to recreate it. I will also walk you through the basic terminology and mechanics of the craft, such a hook size, yarn weight, and things like that.
I am a law student currently looking to do some extra work and make a little money on the side. I began to crochet about three and a half years ago, picking up a how-to book, a hook, and some yarn from my local Micheals. I wanted something to do with my hands while watching TV aside from playing Minecraft for the thousandth time, and crochet became the answer.
Crochet is an excellent hobby, especially for a person with ADHD like myself. It allows me to occupy my hands when doing something else, while at the same time creating creative and useful. It can also be a great stress reliever, allowing you to get lost in the repetitive, almost mindless motions of the hook and yarn.
I look forward to meeting with you and passing on the knowledge I have acquired.
I keep it simple. Instead of hammering you with words you do not understand. I show you the way I learned how to crochet. I start off small and basically learn my way as I continue to crochet. I am still learning but I had to start somewhere.
I am a military veteran that love arts and crafts. I enjoy learning how to do different things like crocheting, making jewelry, drawing, learning foreign languages. I love to try anything when it comes to something I never considered learning how to do. Crocheting took over me and I stay on YouTube trying to better my craft.
