Patience, patience and patience. I listen to what the student needs and adjust my lessons accordingly. Some students need more time to grasp one concept or another. Some breeze through a concept and need more of a challenge. Also, there are no stupid questions in my class.
I have a degree in Fashion Design. I have worked in the fashion industry as a patternmaker and loved what I did. I branched off to teach both at the middle school and college levels. I taught intro to sewing classes, garment construction, digital textile design and fashion design/illustration. I also had my own seamstress business out of my home where I made custom gowns, did bridal alterations and prototyped crazy ideas from clients. All were very satisfying and educating in their own way.
Cancellation policy is 24 hours advanced notice. If the lesson is canceled later than that, or there is a no show, the fee for the lesson is still due.
The first free lesson will be to discuss your wants/needs out of lessons and to brainstorm some ideas of ways forward.
