Top lerares met hart en ziel, geduldig, begripvol en helpt graag over persoonlijke en professionele groei! Dank je wel Penny!
Les was prima, klaar en duidelijk.
She is very experience and she explained very well ,I enjoyed my class with her.
I'm a Dutch language tudor in Brussels and have teached kids, teens, refugees, politicians and others who want to learn more about this language. I'm interested in many subjects and will customize the classes to your needs. And will help you learn and speak Dutch in a fun, practical way. Homework and extra information on request, focus is on speech! And grammar is additional. All levels. Note: I'm from the Netherlands, so I don't speak Flemish! But for most people that's not a problem.
This class is suitable for (absolute) beginners, mediate users or advanced users of Illustrator. I will customize all classes to your level and objectives so you'll learn all you need in a short time, compared to groups lessons who have a more generic approach. If you work on a marketing department and just want to learn basics or you are a graphic designer and want to learn more tips/tricks or you're just interested and want to refresh your knowledge. All is possible, drop me a line and I'm sure we'll find the right approach for you!

Pattern Making and Sewing Classes Women's wear, Home Textile
With so many things selling outside, still many times it doesn't quite fit our taste and style. With sewing and pattern making skills you can bring anything you've imagined to reality. With good sewing skills you can upscale any DIY project and make it look like you just purchased it at the designers boutique. Learning pattern making allows you to develop any garment from scratch and be sure that nobody has anything like this. I'm adjusting to any level of knowledge from the beginner to advanced. Sharing all the techniques and tricks I know. If you think that you are a hard learner I have a lot of patience and always will find the way to explain everything till I absolutely sure you understand. I'm a practicing fashion designer and have more then 10 years experience of teaching groups and in private.
