Hello I am looking for someone that is willing to teach me more about magick and witchcraft. I have been studying and practicing it for about 2 years now but every spell I have tried doesn't work. I am also willing to learn more then just spells.

The best teacher is yourself! Although a personal teacher would be good. Trying to teach on-line is difficult, if not impossible!
And, if you are trying to cast spells, then you are not studying witchcraft; you are studying Wicca! Although Wicca does use witchcraft, it is really a religion; witchcraft, of itself, is not! It is many,many years ago since witches cast spells! That was when everybody believed in supernatural forces. Many still do; but many do not!
First, understand that every living thing has magick. It is the life force of the universe. Basically, it is the energy that makes everything (tangible and intangible) live. Some call this force "energy". Some call it "spirit". Some call it "chi". Some call it "chakra". Some call it "electricity", and so on. But we and all creation exist and are sustained by and linked together by the same force, which I call "life". There are many ways to tap into life. Before your spells can work, you must tap into life.
And don't be bound in the box of religious boundaries. We create those for ourselves, because of our social nature and desire to belong to a particular group who can relate to us and we relate to them. But the fact of the matter is, everyone has and uses magick, either wittingly or unwittingly.
To add to that, everything, living or not, is made of of molecules that are constantly vibrating at different rates depending on their make-up or density is how fast or slow the vibration is. By visualizing and feeling this, we can then start to move the energy around after connecting with it.
But if you want to learn Wicca (witch), Raymond Buckland is one of the greatest teachers of all time. His subtlty and wisdom helped the American people get past their fear of the religion, which is really called "pagame" (pagan), which means "people of the woods" (people of nature).
