What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I asses their knowledge on sewing to determine their level of expertise by asking them to sew a straight stitch, To back up. To fill the bobbin. If they understand those terms and do them then they know basic sewing. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied fashion design at FIDM. I worked in factories where I learned how to sew. I make sewing samples for fashion companies. And sew custom gowns for special occasions. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $35 for 1 hours. Plus a $75 (non refundable) starting kit. I provide learning materials for students. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching my own daughters first. Then when their friends saw their projects they asked if they could also take sewing lessons with me. I took my classes all the way to their elementary school as an after school program. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I teach from ages 8 years old and up to adult. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

When I get a picture from a student of their finished project. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would start by not committing to a long term class so that you can decide if you can learn with that person, because you need a teacher that suits your learning style. And second, make sure you can ask questions! If you feel odd asking that teacher a question, then that might not be your fit as your teacher. And last, see their work. Their work should match your goal level as a seamstress. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your personal goals in relations to sewing? Do you have time to practice at home, not just go to class? How committed will you be to learning?
