About Fatima

Hello all!

I have been sewing since I was 10. For about 10 years, I worked in a very high volume David's Bridal. During this time I was the Alterations Manager. I currently own my own business since 2002. I design home decor, fashion accessories, clothing and do alterations. I started teaching sewing in 2009 and am currently an Instructor at Joann's, Albany High School, Hobby Lobby, Hudson Valley Community College, and Schenectady County Community College. Between the all of these places I teach all levels of sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, and jewelry making. I teach all skill levels and ages in each.

Although I am on Wyzant for private lessons, I can teach classes by request.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching because I enjoy the challenge of helping someone understand. I see tutoring as teaching one on one. I will individualize each lesson according to the need of the student. I will not skip over something that is difficult for the student to understand. I will find another way to explain it or demonstrate it until the student gets it. I do this while being patient, kind, and fun! Students are never bored with me.

I am interested in results. I feel that tutoring only matters if results are being achieved. If there are any specific questions, concerns, or needs; please do not hesitate to contact me.
