Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

Nolan M.
Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

Japanese Original Traditional Origami

Origami is fun, easy, inexpensive and great for sharing with others. I teach many different types of origami. :)

*Easy Origami
*Animals
*Traditional
*Unique
*Fun Origami
*Flowers
*Accessories
*Fruits & Vegetables
*Sea Creatures
*Sweet & Food
*Christmas
*Halloween
*Others Many More...;)

Origami (Ori meaning "to fold", and kami meaning "paper")
is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin.

There is nothing quite like the joy you get from transforming a plain square piece of paper into a container, animal, flower, etc.

It still puts a smile on your faces when you complete an origami. :)
