I've been practicing origami for over 20 years. My love of animals as a kid inspired me to learn origami so I could fold my very own paper zoo. Now, I teach students of all ages and skill levels to fold. I've also been a theatre educator for nearly a decade and I love empowering the inner artist in all of us.

I'll work with you to master the common folds and bases, learn all kinds of models, and show you how to read diagrams so you can keep folding on your own, and even try your own original designs. In addition to creating pieces of art, origami exercises hand-eye coordination and can feel as calming as meditation. After every session, you will come away with amazing paper creations!

Just by folding paper, you can create beautiful pieces of art in five, twenty-five, or one hundred and five steps, from a simple fish to a three-headed dragon. The art of Origami truly has no bounds.

I'm currently based in Arlington, VA but I often travel for my theatre work and will keep my ...

Jeff was such an amazing teacher. He came to our home and even brought the special paper with him. Our son who is 7 and his friends (8-9yrs) thoroughly enjoyed learning how to fold origami and it was a creative fun way to spend the afternoon. We hope to do it again soon.

The most important question a client can ask: Why me and not someone else?

1. My powerful program is interactive, convenient and affordable. I always look for ways to upgrade it and provide the best customer service - total satisfaction is guaranteed or you will get your money back!

2. There are many good chess players around the world, some of them are weaker and some are stronger than me. But it is one thing to play chess, and another teaching it. I believe I have special interpersonal communication skills which I use during my lessons to make it fun and understandable - especially for children.

3. I am not only a coach but also a leader who provides direction. I will not only teach chess but also show my students how to learn and advance on their own - such as learning to explore ChessBase, ICC, and other self development platforms. Using this method will allow students to develop their skills much faster.

Ron
My name is Ron. Last year my 10 y/o twins took weekly origami lessons from Haggit for a period of 6 months. They are both doing origami diligently since then, and proudly teach origamo to their classmates. Origami became a fun family activity in our house.
In march 2019 they invited their friends to celebrate an Origami birthday party. Haggit taught the guests how to fold several models. The children had a great time. They were all talking about their experience the following day at school. I highly recommend Haggit for teaching and leaading Origami parties
