I Want To Teach

"I love ACA. Your teaching methods are awesome and I’m learning more than I ever thought I would."

- Jessica F., ACA Crochet Instructor Training Student

Learn to TEACH crochet!

Just knowing how to crochet will not make you a great teacher. In fact, even the greatest crocheters can have trouble teaching.

That's why I created a different approach to crochet instruction that includes teaching objectives, lesson outlines, homework, patterns, action steps, and more!

And no, it doesn't include large groups or granny squares.

When you learn my approach to crochet education, you'll build a community of crocheters who will know, like, and trust you! Let's pass crochet through the generations in better hands than we found it, together.

In this course we'll cover:

  • Private Crochet Instruction
    • Lessons vs Workshops
    • Lesson Foundations
    • Becoming a Coach
    • Skill Assessments
    • Student Tool Kit
    • Teaching Environments
    • Payment structures, left-handed students, slow learners, children, first projects
  • Client Journey
    • Marketing Efforts
    • Promotions; keeping students coming back, finding new students
    • Building a Community
    • Ravelry
    • Continuing Education & Support
  • Templates & Forms
    • Guidelines & Responsibilities
    • Lesson Overview & Courses Syllabus
    • Individual Lesson Plan & Agreement
    • New Student Checklist
  • Teaching objectives, lesson outlines, homework, patterns, action steps and more for the Beginner, Easy & Intermediate levels of crochet!
