"If you love the look of Origami but were worried that it seems complicated to make, then this course is for you
Origami should be enjoyable! With the help of these lessons, you’ll see that it’s easy to create complex and elegant Origami models! Each lesson is between 30 and 45 minutes and gets you from the flat piece of paper to the completed model!
You get a great sense of satisfaction from being able to pick up a simple piece of paper and making it into a piece of art!

I teach a fun beginners course on the Tarot. This course goes over what Tarot is (and isn't), a little bit of history, how to get started, how to do a reading, and more.

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

I was a chess tutor for Elementary and Middle School aged kids for 3 years. I helped them learn how to play, get better at playing, and also facilitated events for my students to compete in chess. I have played Chess since I was 4 and before I stopped competing, I had a ranking of around 1600. I was also the President of my school's 30 member Chess Club when I was in high school. I think Chess is incredibly fun and beneficial to a young mind. I hope I can teach you what I know!

McKenna has a great style where she continually challenges me to push my thinking but also keeps the lesson fun and shares the way she would think about a given situation. This was my third or fourth lesson with her, she clearly comes in with a game plan to make me incrementally better each week, and always concludes the lesson with some things for me to think about for next time or when I'm playing with my friends. She clearly has a brillant chess mind but more importantly for me is a great teacher.

McKenna was patient with my 6-year-old.

I wanna say that you’re a very talented piano teacher and also your voice is out of this world. Thank you for all the lesson you’re amazing.
