I have enjoyed sewing since I first learned in 8th grade. (That was in 1968). In my youth, I made clothes for myself. As my family grew, I made clothes for my daughter and costumes for all three of my children, as well as costumes for their lower school musical productions. I also made many of the curtains and drapes for my house.
I would most enjoy - and would be most effective - teaching a novice. You would get more out of the experience if you had your own machine, and could practice between tutoring sessions.

Jeanne and I have been working on three different outfits. Some of the required skills can be difficult to master. As Jeanne mentioned we have been trying to complete the last section of buttonholes. I could not completely remember the set up with my machine. So over the last week, I went to the internet to see if I could look up information on my machine. I found that people blog questions about techniques that Jeanne has shown me (eg how to do shirring). No one had the technique that she showed me or an understanding of the importance of simple steps (pinning) that will assist you in your work.
This is why a titled this review the Old Fashion Way. I am an apprentice learning from a master with the ability for questions and inquiry that goes beyond a video or blog spot. This is the best part of tutoring. Very Grateful.
Jeanne has helped me learn how to use my machine, practice the skills she's taught me and begin and finish a first project - all in three sessions.
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.
I can help with choosing a pattern, interpreting the directions, choosing fabric, laying out the pattern pieces, cutting it out, assembly and finishing of the item.
