About Dovile
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.

As a result of my lesson with Connie, I gained a clear and thorough understanding of the most challenging pattern I am working with. Although I consider myself to have intermediate skills I still needed the assistance of some one far more proficient and Connie is that person. She is a patient, professional and most pleasant woman. I will not hesitate to call for her help again.

Vena is a phenomenal teacher. She really ensures that you understand the concepts fully when teaching and doesn't rush through anything to fit it within a certain time frame. In our first day, she helped me learn the semantics of patternmaking and sewing and apply it visually to a dress form! For any beginner or someone who needs to solidify their foundation, Vena is a great instructor!

Had my first lesson today and Vena showed me many tips on how to lay out the pattern properly on the fabric and reviewed what the pattern symbols mean. I learned things I never knew and, as we went along, she gave me the reasons why things are done a certain way which is good so it'll make sense and I won't be as likely to forget them. I'm very happy and can't wait for Lesson 2.

Jean definitely has the heart of a teacher as he explained everything in the simplest form to make it easier to understand. He answered every question with a thorough answer and made sure that I knew what I was doing before he got off the phone. I would definitely recommend him!

About Sandra
I have been crocheting for over 35 years. I crochet almost everyday keeping my skills up to date and learning new ones. I give projects away to either one of my 5 grandchildren or donate to charity for children.

I have an easy going, friendly manner that helps take the stress away from learning a new skill. I like to meet my students in person in the safety of a public place like a coffee shop or library near their home. I like to be present and able to see how they are holding the hook and yarn and help them make any adjustments if needed. It's also nice to be able to give encouragement and any suggestions when I'm sitting right next to a student.

Crochet is an awesome craft, it's portable, calming and sometimes challenging. Creating items either from patterns or your own design gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment.


I will bring a hook, yarn and some instructions for you to practice with and take home. All you have to do is show up and have fun learning to crochet!

I met with Sandra at a coffee shop near my house. She was very knowledgeable about crochet and taught me the basics. I tried teaching myself online but it was so much easier with her sitting right there next to me showing me how to hold the hook and what to do with the yarn.

I will definitely get more instructions from Sandra when I get stuck on a project. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn crochet.

As I have gotten older I needed something to occupy my free time. I decided I wanted to learn to crochet and knit so I could make stuff for my grand babies. I found Sandra' information online and I couldn't be more satisfied with her teaching abilities. I learned basic crochet techniques and when I feel more comfortable I will definitely be giving her a call.

About Stephen
Currently looking for new students.
I teach piano, japanese, chess, go(weiqi/baduk), and meditation/self-improvement.
I am very proficient in all of the above subjects and have helped dozens of students reach their long-term goals over the years. I am also very patient and have taught children piano lessons for more than 10 years. As a learner I know how overwhelming new subject-matter could be and I tend to understand the pace that the student needs/wants to go at.
I feel a huge sense of accomplishment when I see my students improving. I also am constantly improving myself as a teacher so the lessons will only get better and the material should be easier to understand with time.
Let's master anything you want to work on, and have a lot of fun too :)
Thanks for reading!
-Stephen

Patient instructor. I'm super rusty and he was able to keep at my pace. He also made it interesting by using practical scenarios and alternating with cartoons or games. He watches anime as well so I was able to learn while talking about things I like. It helped practicing much easier.

About Bernadette
I have been knitting for twelve years and I have ten years of teaching experience. I have taught all of my children and the neighborhood children to knit and enjoy uplifting the spirits of others with this beautiful art.

I am located in California and am available on webcam only unless by appointment in person. My primary focus when tutoring is to ensure that the experience is a happy one and the student learns the requested skill and is more confident about knitting that before we engaged. Yarn is very forgiving. Knitting takes patience and time but is very relaxing. I enjoy every moment of it.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

I enjoy knitting everything and with every type of yarn. I do not discriminate. The only type of yarn I do not like is the yarn that runs out in the middle of a project. I enjoy knitting for charity and for those in ne
ed. I donate to hospitals and I knit for people that are battling cancer. I encourage others that I teach to knit with the same amount of love and compassion. This is a great passion of mine and I want to share my passion with the world. This is a lost art and I want to continue this wonderful art to every generation. I am also on instagram at #detsysknitting.

LESSON DETAILS

Please inform me what you would like to learn, what your want to make before the lesson to avoid wasting time. I would also like to ensure that I am prepared with materials, equipment, books, etc. to ensure full learning occurs. The student is expected to bring their equipment.

I learned to knit when I made a scarf. I have been knitting for 2 years. Bernadette taught me how to knit when I was only 8 years old. Bernadette is the best knitting teacher because she knows a lot about knitting and she won't go faster than you are ready to go. She moves at the right speed. She knew when I needed help and she taught me how to pearl too. I liked learning how to read a pattern and how to use different yarns.

When I make a mistake with what ever I make she will fix it and tell what I did wrong. I won first place for a art contest with my knitting. I made a wash cloth. I love knitting so much.
