I have been playing chess competitively since the mid-70's, am a certified Local Tournament Director, and have run chess clubs in many different locations. My current chess rating puts me in the top 5% of competitive players in Texas and the top 10% nationally.

I have an organized curriculum available which I customize to the needs of the student. Another aspect of our lessons requires playing games so I can see that the student has gained the skill taught, and give them an opportunity to put a new skill to practical use. I make use of problems, special playing situations, and review games the student has played once the student learns to write the moves down using standard move notation.

I also offer discounts for group sessions, if interested.

I enjoyed my sewing lesson. Kaneisha made sure I understood everything she was teaching me. She was patient.
LaQuanda
Kaneshia is patient and is hands on when teaching. Makes sure you understand and asks questions as you go along to make sure you got it. She encouraged me to bring my own machine so that I know how to use it and get accustom to the machine. Never used it before and she helped me understand the basic use of the machine.
Natalie
She was very informative and I love that she gave me constructive criticism on my garment. I can’t wait to learn more from her.

I teach embroidery, hand sewing and machine sewing to students of all ages. Beginning students can learn hand sewing stitches that are used in conjunction with machine sewing to finish items.

Embroidery is like painting with a needle and floss. Students can learn basic embroidery stitches to use on pre-printed kits or to create their own drawings.

About Tracy

Billie began knitting at age 4. Over the decades she has knit everything from slippers, afghans, jackets, sweaters, baby clothes to dishtowels. She is a retired educational consultant who worked with parents and teachers to bring learning toys to children in their most formative years. She understands how life in our fast-paced world can lead one to feel the need to multi-task. Knitting allows you to do just that! You can have conversations or watch a film on Netflix while turning a piece of yarn into something useful, one stitch at a time. But it's also very relaxing, once you're up to speed. Billie is a patient teacher who will ensure that you'll be knitting in no time.

In your first class you'll learn how to cast on, and do the knit and purl stitches.
If time permits, you'll also learn how to bind off. Billie can help you select patterns to make things that will be at the right skill level for you.

"My first chess lesson with Atousa was WONDERFUL! Besides being a chess Grandmaster with a thorough grasp on the entire game, she was also personable, engaging, encouraging, and willing to work with me (although I am not a very good player yet). I thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and am looking forward to future lessons and becoming a better player."

"Sam is a truly fantastic teacher. I am a clinical counselor and very picky with giving praise to anyone in the helping and teaching professions, but Sam, who (among other qualifications), also has a psychology AND teaching background, has a gift of making children feel almost instantly accepted, cherished, and excited. He is patient, warm, strategic but flexible, always adjusting to my daughter's needs in an instant. Sam provides that perfect combination of inciting commitment and a disciplined approach to learning while allowing a child to grow in his or her own pace and have fun while doing it that most children need, and I can whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone."
