Hello! My name is Kathleen and I'm excited to share the magic of paper folding with you! I've been folding since I was in Elementary school and teaching formally since 2004.

Great first lesson. Kathleen contacted me in advance to find out what I’d like to work on and she was prepared with several options tonight. Her helpful tips on folding and diagram reading were just what I was looking for. We agreed on the next piece and I’m already looking forward to our next lesson. Thank you!

Kathleen is a very pleasant person to learn from. She is patient and very willing to redo if you need a rerun on a step. She is very knowledgeable and has a lot of learning things to share. I love my origami lessons, looking forward to each new experience. Kathleen is a very nice person.

I was looking for a boost to my new hobby with origami, and have had two lessons so far with Kathleen. I couldn't be happier with the lesson experience; her approach is detailed, clear, easy to follow along with and relaxed. She was even folding upside down from her point of view so that I could see from across the table. I was really impressed. There's nothing like learning from a real person. Definitely looking forward to more lessons in the future.

I HATE sounding like a textbook. Spending hours memorizing grammar rules is not my idea of fun learning. I understand that in order to learn a language, you have to speak the language. That's why I only teach my students what they need to know to start speaking. We learn a language by using the language so I don't stress grammatical perfection, my approach is all about fun conversation.

About Allahyiah
Hola Todos! (Hello Everyone)

I am presently a Spanish Instructor of both adults and children, I conduct in-person sessions in my local community, held at convenient times in the evenings after work and school. My gift lies in helping my native English speaking students to master the fundamentals of both English and Spanish, laying a firmer foundation for a smooth transition from the familiar to the new. I’ve been quite successful at taking the fear and intimidation out of the process, producing students who relax and approach their learning eagerly.

I also provide individual instruction online to students all over the world, which is extremely rewarding, given the joy I receive from life long learning. As a lover of language, opportunities for expansion are limitless, from sharing the afternoon with a friend in Brazil, to providing
translation for local community outreach, to simply communicating with the vendor who’s selling the wooden pallets I want. If you envision a more connected world community, I can help you experience it!

Whether you want to to get an A+ on your next Spanish test, become more comfortable with traveling to foreign Spanish-speaking countries, or just connect with people and art using the second most commonly spoken world language, you've come to
the right place! I have been studying Spanish for the last 7 years of my life, and on top of that am currently working on bachelors degrees in both Anthropology and Linguistics, as well as an associates degree in Spanish and a nationally recognized translator's certification. Let me know if your ready to take the next steps towards fluency!

About Liam
I am currently a college student working on a double major (Anthropology and Linguistics", a minor (Spanish), and a Spanish to English Translators certificate. I am fascinated with language learning and do it daily, it may sound odd but it is actually one of my favorite hobbies (on top of Spanish I have study Turkish, German, and most recently French). My prices are low because I am not in fact a teacher, but I understand all to well what it is to be a student and want to help you with your own language learning journey.

When I began studying Spanish, I was immediately hooked. I wanted to learn as much of the language as possible as quickly as I could. There was just one large obstacle in my way: the classroom setting. Following the rigid curriculum of a classroom is incredibly restricting to a language learner. Just think about it, w
hen you were learning English, did you start with present tense, then move to present progressive, then past tense? Of course not, because that would take too long. Instead, you learned to absorb the bits of language you were exposed to, then try it out without any real fear of making mistakes. You could say things like "I eated" instead of "I ate" in front of your parents only to find them carefully correcting you and letting you on your way. This is an entirely different set up from the typical classroom, where the equivalent mistake in a Spanish class could cost you a good grade. I intend to create the same kind of atmosphere with our lessons. I have lived in Spain and experienced the same thing with my host parents, patiently correcting my every mistake until before I knew it we were conversing fluently. As well I have obviously been in the typical Spanish classroom, where the difference between "la lámpara rota" and "la lámpara rompida" is the difference between passing and failing a test. What they don't tell you is that every native Spanish speaker made the same mistakes you are, just without all the pressure.

If any of this struck a cord with you, do not hesitate to contact me! The hours I have listed may seem small, but in reality my schedule is quite flexible and I'm sure we could find a time that fits your schedule!

Want to learn to speak Spanish super quickly?

Learning how to speak Spanish will help you communicate with the millions of Spanish-speakers in the US and Latin America. It will also help improve your memory and help you make friends more easily.

I've been helping people learn Spanish over the course of the last 15 years. In terms of my personal background, I'm from Venezuela, I've worked at Google and Amazon, and I have been in the education field for 10 years. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to see whether we're a good match!

About Daniel
My passion is helping people learn new skills. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing someone improve in something that I know will enhance their life.

In terms of my personality and teaching style, I'm very relaxed and make learning really fun--that's part of what enables learning to be effective!

In terms of my experience, I've been an educator for the last 10 years. I have also worked in education at Google, Amazon, and other well-known companies and won several awards for my educational strategies (E3 scholar, South by Southwest Scholar, Design, Art, Technology Award, Hermes Creative Award, and more). In terms of education, it's a BA from Brown University, a Master's from Carnegie Mellon, and an MBA from Wharton.

So... let's get to the things I love teaching most!

PIANO
I've been playing piano for 25+ years. When I first
started learning, I really struggled to motivate myself to practice, so I understand many of the challenges that beginners face when they take up the instrument. It's not easy! However, I've learned some strategies that make practicing fun and effective. I love motivating individuals to accomplish things they could only dream of. My particular specialty is helping people learn how to improvise and compose their own music. By being able to improvise, you'll be able to not only WOW your friends and family, but also have a greater appreciation and understanding of all the music you hear. You'll naturally also get better at music theory, and--once you're good--you'll have a feeling of satisfaction that is incredible.

SPANISH
Quieres hablar Español? Having learned four languages and taught many in the past, I've crafted a particular style for teaching people languages that takes into account the way that humans learn languages naturally. We'll converse and read about all your interests so that you can really enjoy it. It's really fun and you'll get to speak very quickly!

Native speaker fluent in english and spanish. I have been educated in both Mexico and USA, so my language levels meet high standards; currently I tutor AP (advanced placement) Spanish students at a local school, and have seen such a huge progress with them, because there we make learning fun and varied, and also give many tips on language learning, as I learn other languages myself,and have seen results, I am an expert adviser, who gives personalized help.
I also get close to my students so they feel comfortable with me, we make learning fun and humoristic, not just plain on studying grammar, this way always fails.

About Carolina
I love art, and social studies, they are to me the pleasures of life: sometimes I like to write poems, to express my feelings through them, as I believe this let's me release my negative emotions, and is an alternative to bad things like alcohol, etc. I love seeing art from all over the world: European, Latin, Asian, but mostly middle eastern, for whom I have a great love and would love to meet soon, specifically Petra, Jordan, Egypt, Israel, since some of the most beautiful places are located here, and I dream of feeling free, adventurous and far away from the daily typical routine. Simply contemplating breathtaking places would be life changing and stepping on the places where the greatest civilizations once lived could be life changing. I'm ambitious, and no wish is too silly for me, I believe that we have the power t
o remove the problems of our society, positivity is stronger than complaining, and brings us all together into harmony, regardless of our age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disabilities, etc.
