Hi there- I am looking for a teacher to help my daughter get off the ground with sewing. She has taken a couple of commercial sewing lessons and done some experimentation, but could really benefit from something a little more direct and regular.

The Job:

-Every Friday for 4 weeks (hopefully starting 7/21) to begin with, with option for future sessions
-2 hours long either between the hours of 4pm-9pm (negotiable)
-In my home (we have 2 sewing machines to work with)
-Direct sewing instruction for a gifted 9-year-old
-Project ideas to be determined between teacher and student on first session
-Flat rate of $100 for entire session, to be paid out weekly

The Student:

-Eager to learn, has been talking about sewing almost her whole life
-Pleasant disposition with high creativity
-Works well with kind adults
-Somewhat of a perfectionist which can lead to indecisiveness, so may need guidance

The Teacher (you):

-Must know how to operate any basic sewing machine
-Must have some kind of experience working with children (babysitting, summer camp, younger siblings, etc.). Experience working with gifted children preferred, but not required.
-Must have a working knowledge of common sewing pitfalls and how to solve them
-Must have own reliable transportation with no scheduling conflicts for all 4 Fridays
-No allergies to cats
-Happy and energetic disposition
-Not remotely flaky in the slightest

If interested, please email me a brief summary about yourself and your sewing experience (any pictures you may have of your work would be preferrable, but not required) and contact information. I will be out of town Wed-Fri of this week, so I'm hoping to fill this position in the next couple of days.

Thank you and have a good one!
