About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

About Alexandra
Alexandra Mortenson is a private violin teacher and writing coach in Salt Lake City. Her name means “keeper of man”, hence she has a wonderful husband, eight younger brothers, and a sneaking suspicion that she may end up with all sons. She loves to read, write, run, and hike in the mountains.

Alexandra is delighted by her opportunities to teach and help her students succeed in achieving their personal goals and ambitions. Please contact her with any questions or interest in taking lessons. She teaches the following subjects:

VIOLIN
Alexandra has been studying the violin for over 20 years, taking lessons primarily from Peggy Wheelwright and John England. She played in the youth violin group Pizzicato Strings and was concert master for her middle school and high school orchestras. Alex completed a music minor at the University of Ut
ah in December 2016 and enjoyed four years with the University Campus Symphony.

A few of Alex’s favorite pieces include Csardas (V. Monti), Symphony Espagnole (Lalo), Theme from Schindler’s List (John Williams) and The Devil Went Down to Georgia (Charlie Daniels).

WRITING
Words are Alexandra's passion, and she graduated in December, 2016 with her Honors B.A. in English. She has written for The Standard Examiner,The Daily Utah Chronicle, and LDSLiving Magazine, publishing a variety of articles and gaining experience in research, interviewing, writing, and editing. She has also worked as a research writer and editor for FamilySearch and has been accepted to present twice at the National Undergraduate Literature Conference. She enjoys writing short stories, personal essays, academic papers, biographies, and basically anything that includes words.

KOREAN
Alexandra learned Korean while serving in South Korea for a year and a half as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. While there she taught and studied daily in the Korean language, and upon returning home she started the Korean Studies minor at the University of Utah, which she graduated from in December 2016.

About Peter
I love sharing knowledge! Math has always been a passion for me, and I competed in several math competitions even in elementary school. Since then I have tutored many students in math from a fourth grade level to college math. I scored a 34 on the ACT and I enjoy helping others achieve their dreams by getting college scholarships. I lived in Italy for more than 2 years and have worked as an Italian teacher and tutor for 5 years. I have been playing guitar and making music for 19 years. You can check out my CD, "Songs from Pablo's Attic," on Spotify and iTunes. I am currently attending graduate school at the University of Utah and our tutoring endeavors help us work through school in a meaningful way.

About Galyna
Hello! I teach piano and flute.
I can prepare for competitions and exams, give knowledge of music theory, or teach music just for fun - for your, or your kid's enjoyment.

My students performed in studio recitals, successfully passed Associate Board of the Royal Schools of Music examinations, won competitions such as Music-Fest Rising Talents Festival, Crescendo International competition, Russian Music Festival and were awarded performance opportunities in such renowned halls as Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall of Kaufman Center, Italian Teatro of Columbia University, NY and Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia.

I earned my Master of Music degree from the National P. Tchaikovsky Music Academy of Ukraine and Bachelor of Music degree (with Honors) from R. Glier Kyiv State Higher Music College.

My perfor
mance experience includes concerts in Zurich, Basel, Bern as a winner of Switzerland Round Table Club Competition; chamber appearances in Haifa (Israel), Koblenz (Germany), solo and chamber performances in Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall of Kaufman center, NY, in the Musicales of the Greater Princeton Steinway Society.

I am a co-founder and artistic director of Music-Fest Rising Talents Festival.

I teach in New York City, NJ or via Skype.

In NYC I teach at the music studio next to Penn Station. I can also come to your place if it is in 3 miles radius from Penn Station.
In New Jersey I teach at my home studio in Roseland or can come to your place if it is nearby.

For in-studio lessons in NYC I charge extra $10 per half an hour to cover the cost of studio rent.

For lessons in your place I will need to charge extra to cover the cost of commute.

My daughter used to take flute lessons with Galyna. I wish she didn't move from Princeton, so my daughter could continue lessons with her. Galyna's kindness, engaging personality and desire to help a student grow as a musician were important factors which contributed to a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere. Her own performances were always inspirational. She is a great teacher, and I highly recommend her!

My daughter took lessons with Galyna for five years. At the age of seven she was true beginner - no experience with any musical instruments. Sophia really enjoyed her lessons! She ended up playing in a band in middle school and I attribute her success to Galyna's lessons. Galyna is professional, friendly and flexible. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher.

About Tyler
I am a professional writer, photographer, business owner, and quality control, expert. I graduated from Santa Barbara University with a bachelors degree in Business Management and Strategy, with a minor in creative writing.

ESL students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual voice. I can help any student to speak with freedom, confidence, and expression.

As a child, I had a really difficult time learning how to read and write properly. If it had not been for a kind teacher and tutor, I would not have been able to graduate in time with the rest of my class. It is this same dedication, patience, and self-confidence that I strive to teach in my lessons to my students
no matter their age or background. If you have any questions or suggestions about my teaching style or schedule, please feel free to contact me at any time.
