Excellent Tutor

Jo Dean is an absolute gem! Patient kind and knowledgeable. She is very helpful and a true professional. I recommend her to anyone who needs help with setting up your new machine and getting started. I will be using her again once I need more assistance.

Nicole, 1 lesson with Jo Dean

Patient and knowledgeable tutor.

She talked me through making fashion illustrations and flats in Adobe illustrator. She was very patient and shared a lot of valuable tips and knowledge on the subject.

Jo Dean is a find!!!

Jo Dean is helping me with a very complicated pattern. She is patient, never makes me feel pressured, and really knows her stuff! I’m very new at sewing, I’m really glad I found her on Wyzant 🙏🏻.

Very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. She gave me several excellent tips and advice on using my machine, and helped me with problems I was having with stitches.

Timely Help

JoDean was perfect for meeting my needs. She understood everything about my new machine, because she studied the manual before we started my lesson. I will depend on her whenever I need help. I am 76 years old and just now wanting to sew. She is patient. Thank you!

Mary, 1 lesson with Jo Dean

Knowledgeable and patient

Jo Dean was so kind, knowledgeable and most of all...patient. She is going to continue helping my daughter learn to use her sewing machine, because I have never sewn!

Lauren, 1 lesson with Jo Dean

Knowledgeable and patient Teacher

Jo Dean was extremely patient and has great follow up. it is definitely difficult learning to sew remotely for a sewing class. 1 hr is not enough per session for beginners. I highly recommend Jo Dean and will continue taking classes with her!

Diane , 2 lessons with Jo Dean

Amazing teacher!!!

Jo Dean T. was extremely helpful to me!! She did her research on my sewing machine beforehand which was really helpful, and she tentatively listened to all the questions I had and gave me really detailed answers. She is super nice and caring, I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor and will be taking more classes in the future!!
