About Paula

I have been formally teaching sewing in my home classroom in Brookfield, Illinois, for the past 2 years. I prefer teaching in my home classroom but I will travel a reasonable distance to the student(s) only if they provide their own machine and tools. Travel time exceeding 15 minutes will be charged at 1/2 the hourly rate including both to and from the student's location. I do not provide transportation from the student's location to my home and back. I am available for daytime classes or after-school classes beginning no later than 3:30 p.m. At this time I cannot offer weekend classes. Minor children must have written permission from a parent or guardian with contact information in case of emergency.

I teach both children (age 7 and up) and adults. I never teach more than 4 students at the same time. I have been sewing for myself, others and my home for over 40 years. I provide well-maintained sewing machines that are less than 2 years old. I also provide any sewing tools needed. Some practice fabrics will be provided but the student may be required to purchase their own fabric/pattern for some projects, depending on the project. This would be agreed upon prior to the lesson requiring such items. A student may use his/her own machine and tools if desired. I devise a curriculum individually for each student to meet his/her needs. This would range from structured lessons for a student who has never sewn to refresher courses for adults who had minimal instruction in junior high or high school. I have had students who wanted instruction based upon a particular pattern or project.

My goal is to provide instruction that is not only informative but fun. References are available upon request.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Sewing

I have been sewing for myself and professionally for others for 40 years or more. I have been formally teaching in my home classroom for two years and have helped friends learn about sewing informally. I have used curricula and patterns provided by Kids Can Sew, Inc. and devised my own curricula based on students' needs/desires. In July I will complete formal sewing teacher instruction to further document my qualifications.
