About Jean-Marc
******Update:
I am now offering group lessons for an extremely low price compared to the private lessons cost.

The price is $20 per 1 hour of group lessons
(private lessons are $60 per 1 hour).
So that's $20 vs. $60 (66% discount)

Please use the "Ask Jean-Marc a Question" button to message me and get the details or let me know that you are interested.

About Ainslie
I am an intuitive, Jungian-based astrologer. A life-long yoga practitioner, I presently run a yoga nonprofit. Daily meditation is essential to me. I had my astrology chart done on a whim in the early 90's and immediately became enthralled with the art.

I began my daily blog, featuring Street Art from around the World, in April of 2013. I published two of my novels, written in the late 90's, this year as well. With an MA in counseling Psychology, and a PhD in Philosophy and Religion, I bring a psychological and philosophical perspective to my work. My PhD, from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, concentrated on symbol systems and Jungian Psychology. With over twenty five years experience in astrological counseling, I impart a unique, artistic vision, to my workshops and readings.

Ainslie is equally patient and dynamic in her teaching style. Moreover, the breathe of her astrology knowledge is unparalleled, and she effortlessly imparts a thorough knowledge of the subject in terms that are clear and concise. After my own lessons, I would enthusiastically recommend Ainslie to any student interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of astrology.

Ainslie has given me two astrology readings.. both of which have given me a deeper understanding of astrology and myself. She is meticulous with her work and very patient while explaining all the information she gives, you can clearly see this in her weekly blogs. What I loved most about Ainslie readings is that you really feel how passionate she is about Astrology and this makes the experience so much more meaningful and fun! Thank you Ainslie!

About Brooke
I approach my students with the same attention to detail that I approach my own knitting. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to knit something and it always end up turning out wrong no matter how much you try to understand the pattern. Most of what I teach is how to read the fabric the knitting creates and how to improve your own method. I would have never been able to do this with out all of my own experiences and all the experiences that lead me to where I am now.

I have been raising my daughter, being a wife and all the while knitting and challenging myself to become better for no other reason than for myself. I took on small projects, like baby sweaters, mending store bought sweaters, making blankets and built from there.

Many times I would be at a stand still and would to go to a local yarn shop or find knitting refere
nce books to figure out what I needed to do to fix my problems. Mostly, half of my time knitting was spent ripping (frogging; as knitters say) out my work and picking all my stitches back up.

My life as a sergeant in the Army gave me a “can do” attitude that helped me to never give up. Now, that doesn’t mean my knitting didn’t ever go in a “time out” basket. However, one thing the Army encourages in the their enlisted ranks is to find a way to get a job done with the end in mind. So, that was me, just jumping in, not being afraid to do so. I mean what was the worst that could happen? It wasn’t like I was jumping out of plane. (Yes, I did do that, too, while I was in the Army.)
During this time I was also homeschooling our daughter and when you do this it forces independent study and good research traits. The answer is always out there somewhere and yes, I did believe.

Along came another life shift. This time my daughter would be taking less of my time as she was going to college and my husband would no longer be active duty. I wandered into my local craft store where I knew the yarn manager and mentioned that my life was going to drastically change. I saw her excitement plain as day on her face. “Why not put in an application?”, she asked. I did, and she promptly retired within the next few months. The teaching opportunity almost, literally fell in my lap. But, the beauty of it all was that I was willing to accept yet another life change and as a result found my passion.

About Karen
Hi everyone! My name is Karen, and have been teaching for four years, I'm a strong believer in teaching a student at their own pace. You can't rush learning! I started crocheting at first as a hobby, but now it's how I make a living. I recently became a mother and I know how hard it is to get out of the house, so I host group sessions twice a week, mothers and fathers are welcome to bring their childern. I do online teaching for students 10 and up and for those with special needs. I believe crocheting should bring people together, there is nothing more satisfying than making something with love stitch by stitch!
