I have been knitting for at least 7 years and I also taught an adult to knit as part of a free class. I have done crocheting, cross stitch, tatting, and quilting as well. I am a warm individual available for tutoring in psychology, math, reading, writing, and stitching. I have a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College, where I majored in psychology and received high marks.

A Sensitive and Empowering English Teacher

My mother taught me how to knit, crochet and embroider when I was 8 years old and I?ve been enjoying those arts ever since. I grew up deeply admiring Erica Wilson (okay, this dates me) and I?m absolutely in love with the experience of creating beautiful and useful things with a needle and thread. I?ve been practicing the arts of crewel, embroidery, cross-stitch, knitting, crocheting and beadwork for over 40 years now. I have an online boutique, where I sell my beaded flowers and jewelry, crafted with attention to detail and passion. I want this for my students: to learn the arts of a needle an [more]

Private Flute Instructor

I have been knitting crocheting voraciously since 2005, though my start in the fiber arts began at a very early age. As a child, I lived on a farm in Montana, and my parents had a wool business. We raised our own sheep and angora rabbits there. My mom was active in the fiber arts community there, and it was from her that I learned to spin and weave when I was 6 or 7 years old. After some time away from that, I taught myself to knit from books as an adult and began attending group knitting nights to become involved with other knitters. I have created many projects and have also taught many of m [more]

Graphic Designer, Artist and Craftsperson

I started knitting when I was young, and then in college I needed something to keep my hands busy during lectures. Knitting was the perfect way to distract the antsy part of my brain while I listened. I am highly skilled in basic knitting, and able to expand with more advanced techniques to create interesting objects and textiles. Since sweaters and blankets felt too monotonous for me, I specialized in soft toys and smaller items. "Quick Fix Knitting" is my favorite! Who doesn't like instant gratification? [more]

Experienced Math and Computer Science Tutor

I've been knitting for eight years and taught myself to crochet over a year ago. I've made many different garments and accessories using these methods both as gifts and for personal use. One of the programs that I began as a resident assistant was a weekly knitting group. I encouraged my residents and those across campus to come and learn the craft; I taught them myself. While working in the Career Development office at Dominican University, I was consulted to perform projects both large and small using Microsoft Access, Excel, and Word. This combined with my programming and coding skills set [more]
