« Chain is a fantastic tutor who always gives great and easy to follow explanations, looking at things from multiple sides so no matter what learning style you have she can adapt. She is multi-talented and can help you in various areas, though my personal experience is her help in writing/reading/editing projects. She can always help when you get stuck or show you how to word something differently/better. I definitely recommend Chain as a teacher! »

College graduate and creative costumer offers individual sewing lessons for curious crafters or cosplayers in Sacramento region

Methodology

I teach beginner learners (one-on-one) in their home or at an amenable cultural center such as a library or campus. For machine sewing lessons, I begin by teaching the basics of how to work a machine, including practicing different stitch types and getting familiar with one's tools; once the basics are mastered, I will work with the student to develop a lesson plan based on their project(s) of interest. Patterns, materials, tools, and techniques are all within the scope of a course of learning.

Ideally, a student should have access to their own sewing machine and a few basic supplies in order to begin. If there are financial barriers, it may be possible to use my machine as an example or to acquire the use of a lender machine.

Background

I am a recent graduate with 11+ years teaching experience both creatively and academically. I have worked as an art teacher for KidzArt, Wowza, YMCA, and Crocker House Creative Arts Center, as well as a private art tutor for multiple years. I have both high school and college-level art education as well as extracurricular instruction, plus what I've learned on my own! From pillows to coats to embroidery hoop arts, I've navigated a variety of sewing projects since the early 2000s.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $5
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $22

Details

A basic familiarity course starts at the prices listed. If you would like to request a further extent of travel to your home, the price may increase marginally. Once the student and I begin using patterns to construct a complete project, a small materials fee may be added. Contact me to negotiate possible special arrangements if you have financial need.
