I am an origami artist and origami teacher with more than 20 years experience of teaching origami to children, adults and seniors. I live in NYC. I have been teaching origami in private and public schools as well as community centers, museums and senior centers. I work well with special needs children and adults. I use paper and materials you can find in your own home, like printing paper, napkins, dollar bills or business cards. Origami is not just another art or craft form. It is a way of acquiring multitude of skills, in a fun way . Origami engages students in learning basic math concepts like shape, size and number. In the process they learn patience and concentration sequencing and problem solving. Most importantly, people of all ages gain self esteem as they succeed in finishing a model and take pride of their work. They also find that the models they fold can serve them for practical purposes; All kind of boxes to store crayons, staples, A dish to put candies, a hand ...

Haggit was great. We had a fun time and learned some along the way. Thank you Haggit :)
Melanie S.
Haggit was an excellent instructor who gave instructions that were easy to understand for students at all levels. She came to our class well prepared with several different models for us to make and had a great set-up so we could easily see how to make the folds. We really enjoyed our lesson with her and are excited to use our new origami skills!
Marie Kasprzyk
Haggit was very flexible when scheduling the day and time to host a group origami event. We hosted the event for an organization at Texas A&M. She was very flexible to provide the information needed for us to provide the correct materials, zoom link, etc to the participants. Due to COVID the event had to be remote and the participants were not able to participate in the same location. The origami project that we hosted was really fun and she ensured to take her time showing the types of folds so that everyone was able to easily follow along. She provided additional information about origami such as books that we could study to become really good at origami.

I teach a fun beginners course on the Tarot. This WILL NOT be a Tarot reading instead it's a lesson(s) in teaching you how to do Tarot readings and help you develop practices to become a Tarot reader. This course goes over what Tarot is (and isn't), how to get started, how to do a reading, and more.

The class is based upon my personal system and style of reading the Tarot (developed and practice for over15 years).

This can be taught as a class of multiple people or on a one-on-one basis. This is offered as an in-person or online course.

I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one
children and adults for about 10 years. I have great patience when I teach
students never believing that any concept is too difficult to understand or
master. I have a love for the game that I want to instill in others
I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.

I'm a Home Economics teacher with 30 years crochet experience. I have skills and strong foundation in handicrafts and specialize in fundamentals of crochet. I typically use inspirational ideas around me and modify them according to my students' needs. I structure my lessons in a way the students will learn what they want to learn without feeling bored.

I'm available for eager students of all ages and experience levels. I would love to work with you and help you learn to master the basics of this needlework. I will also help you build a crochet portfolio that you can use any time as a quick reference guide (and inspiration as well) so you can comfortably make your very own DIY crochet projects!

Loudel is personable, patient, and provides cultural context to the Tagalog vocabulary and phrases that she teaches. I would highly recommend her to anyone starting out on their journey to learn Filipino :)
Rachel
I had a wonderful experience learning Tagalog with Loudel. I can tell she has a passion for teaching and is very patient. The lessons and practice exercises she sends me have been very helpful and informative. She helps in making sure I pronounce the words correctly and allows you a chance to help formulate example sentences to further your understanding of the lesson. I also liked learning a little bit about Filipino culture during the lessons. As someone who is half-Filipino, I have always wanted to learn Tagalog. I am glad I found this website and instructor to help me achieve that goal. Thanks to Loudel's help, I now feel more confident in speaking and reading in Tagalog.

Great experience. Helped me start a crochet pattern I was not able to read. Very flexible with time.

Ready to learn crochet, want to brush up on some forgotten skills, or just need help with a project? I have been crocheting since i was 9 years old and teaching all ages for nearly 15 years and would love to get your (yarn) ball rolling! Specializing in pattern reading and writing, troubleshooting, improvisation, and more. No question is too big or too small! I believe that crochet is easier to pick up than knitting, so this is a great place to start for kids or first time yarn crafters and I encourage anyone to learn crochet as well if they want to pick up knitting someday.

Elizabeth is great. As someone who recently took up knitting and have no idea what I am doing, Elizabeth explained the differences in needles, best yarn to use and was very flexible with the lesson schedule. After three lessons, I am halfway to completing my first scarf with a goal of making a blanket!
Janet
WOW! It has been years since I picked up a crochet hook and Elizabeth was able to help re-teach me stitches and how to read a pattern. Elizabeth is very patient and shared alot of great pointers! I now feel confident to complete a baby blanket that my Mother began years and years ago and never finished. Thankyou for your magic Elizabeth! <3
