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.

Kept cancelling. Unresponsive to my texts. Not my type of teacher as she was very unproffesional.

Why can’t I leave MORE than five stars?

I’ve wanted to learn lace knitting for so long but it overwhelmed me every time I tried. Simply stated: I’m no longer overwhelmed or fearful of lace knitting!

Patty is patient, detailed and takes the time to make sure the steps make sense instead of just a monkey see monkey do what I do approach. This gives me an actual understanding of what I’m doing and WHY and removed so much of what confused me before.

Patty has a depth of technical knowledge that is fierce. Combine that with her ability to break it down and truly TEACH me what to do and that’s a recipe for pure awesomeness.

I’ve already booked 2 more lessons because um hello.... I need to learn ALL THE THINGS

My session with Patty was extremely helpful. I really liked the online video format. I was able to correct some tension issues which I now need to practice. I'm looking forward to our next session!

About Siddharth
Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

About Cheryl
Crochet is my passion and God-given talent and I love to share what I learn with others! I've been crocheting off and on since age 10 via books, dedicated teachers, YouTube, crochet magazines, and online communities including Ravelry, Pinterest, crochet blogs, yarn company websites to name a few. I love trolling for online patterns, can interpret the unique crochet "language" and have literally binders full of crochet patterns I've saved over the years.

Friends and family know what to to expect from me as gifts--handmade crochet items. They have encouraged me to sell my creations...

I've been teaching for almost 10 years, offering private and group lessons up to five students. Also, I am a current member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA) since 2009.

Lessons are designed for folks who have never picked up a crochet hook or w
ho want to refresh their skills or learn new ones. Lessons are available online, at your home or my studio.

This was GREAT!! I learned 2 new stitches and she made it SO easy. We started out by showing what I already knew and talked about how I learned best. I got a skein of yarn in my favorite color to practice with. Cheryl introduced me to a lot more crochet possibilities and tools to use for the craft.
I had so much fun and can't wait to take my next classes.

About Bora
Know thyself is the saying, and it applies to chess as well.

Everyone is different. Each has his/her different objectives. Everyone also his/her own strengths and weaknesses.

I tailor the lessons taking these into the account, and focusing on improving on the weaknesses within the framework of the student's goals.

I try to put the emphasis on calculation, middle-game positions, and endgames, however.

I am taking weekly lessons with Bora in order to push my game to the next level. Bora is passionate about chess, and it really shows in his approach to teaching, which I find to be both entertaining and effective. Bora is also a nice person all around and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and/or their kids.

I was literally raised in a bar. At 8 years old I would get out of Elementary School and go to the bar to meet my parents. Took out trash and stocked beer to get a roll of quarters and hit the tables. Learned from some of the best there are. Have played in leagues such as Team League Texas, Texas 8 Ball Society, APA, BCA and HBOB. Have helped many players along the way become much better players.
