Sewing Teacher – Becoming One For Kids
What if you want to become a sewing teacher for kids? I mean a teacher in a formal classroom. Although there are parents that still teach their kids to sew, many send them to sewing classes designed for kids taught by certified or licensed sewing instructors.
Is this any less fun than teaching your kid to sew yourself? Not necessarily, for some kids a structured classroom environment may be best for them. But no matter how the child is taught, the same age related considerations apply as when a parent teaches their child.
In addition, since for a formal sewing instructor this is their livelihood, there are some things to for the potential instructor to consider.
If one is contemplating teaching children to sew for a living, there are some questions that one should ask oneself.
• Do I have the skills to teach children?
• Do I have the patience to teach children?
• Do I have the resources to teach children, such as a dedicated space, finances to purchase the supplies needed?
• Am I willing to obtain formal training if needed?
• Is this really a profession that I can do long term?
• Do I have an appropriate business plan if I want to start up an independent operation?
• Do I want to teach as a free lancer or do I want to be a part of a sewing school?
• Do I really like to sew? This is very important because how we feel about sewing can translate to whether the child learns to love or at least like sewing.
• How creative am I? The more creative the sewer is, the more interesting sewing becomes for the student.
These are just a few of the considerations that anyone who wants to teach children to sew in a formal setting should consider in order to be a successful teacher.
There are some formal training programs for becoming a sewing teacher of kids.
