About Kathleen
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. I really enjoy helping my students find success in origami. If you are a beginner or looking to learn a certain skill or model, I can help you reach your goal.
I am also a licensed teacher and have a degree in teaching Spanish. Teaching and tutoring Spanish is another passion of mine! I'm creative, patient, flexible and understanding.
I look forward to helping you realize your paper dreams and/or Spanish goals!

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.

About Abby
IMPORTANT NOTICE: ** Because my private lessons are sporadically scheduled between other teaching, all lessons for age 12 and over are a minimum of one hour.

Due to my maternal grandfather's career as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of flute music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age 15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Broadway singer Adrian West, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Roland Wyatt-
Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic A
rts. Through many years of teaching experience, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals/groups of all ages , styles, and levels, sing optimally from their hearts. The necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons, though integrating the technique into your own style takes longer and can continue throughout one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from San Francisco State University, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including the last 15 years also working successfully as an ESL educator, and 4/1/2018 to present, math and English tutor for Best Brains learning center, I have gained the confidence to help almost any student achieve their educational and/or professional goals.

About Sabrina
Buon giorno, I'm Sabrina. I hold a B.A., M.A. and Doctorate in Modern Languages (in Italian and French), and specialize in language instruction. I have spent the past 20+ years working with students of all ages, as both a classroom teacher and a private tutor, and offer highly individualized and engaging lessons to meet your personal goals, interests and above all, learning styles. I provide extensive feedback and encouraging guidance to help students continue to succeed independently.

I love sharing my knowledge of and passion for the Italian language and culture with others. I infuse a variety of cultural topics into each language lesson, depending on your personal interests and/or travel plans. You will certainly find my passion contagious! But I realize learning a language isn't easy for everyone, and it can be quite intimidating to
feel confident while speaking. That's why you need a teacher who can figure out what works for you, how you learn, and what motivates you. Everyone can speak beautiful Italian, and engage in conversations for business or pleasure, but it takes a knowledgeable instructor to help get you there efficiently. I can quickly assess and pinpoint your strengths to design activities that help you precisely where and how you need it, and have plenty of effective tricks up my sleeve.

I lived and worked in Italy for about 10 years, in educational tourism, and since moving back to the US I have taught Italian at both the High School and University/College levels for about 4 years each, as well as Community and Continuing Adult Education classes for the past 6 years, and I have training in AP exam prep. Although I have native-fluency, I have myself been a student of foreign languages, and know the struggles that come along with this exciting adventure. I know how to help you get past those hurdles, and have fun along the way.

To learn more about me, my lessons, or to ask me any questions, do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond within a few hours. I look forward to hearing from you. A presto! (Talk to you soon.)

I had Jodi as my accent modification instructor for 2 different seasons. She came to my work place as scheduled. Jodi is an excellent instructor. She did a lot of effort to make sure that I succeed in accent reduction because I had a heavy accent. During and after the training, my colleagues noticed significant changes in my speech, they started understanding me easily, there are no more "repeat again please" or "what do you mean". My speaking confidence increased tremendously after attending Jodi's training. She made a big difference in my life. I have since been promoted to supervisory level at my job.

Jodi is amazing. Her classes were very helpful to identify specific pronunciation improvement for our unique individual speech. The classes helped increasing the self awareness of our own accent and provided tools to correct / improve it. Thank you.

About Angelika
I am an experienced university teacher, Assistant Professor, researcher and PhD in Business Studies, from Sweden but currently living and teaching in the USA. I am a great fit for any student wanting to learn more about:
*Marketing
*International Marketing
*Marketing Communications
*Organizational Theory
*Management
*Human Resource Management
*Swedish language (beginner-advanced, any age group)
*Swedish culture

For my business students: I use visual aids and plenty of real-life examples in the form of case studies, videos and pictures, to increase and deepen your understanding of the theoretical concepts that you are learning. I have years of experience explaining complex theoretical concepts in business studies, so that anyone can understand. By focusing on deep learning related to real-life scenarios, you will retain the k
nowledge better, and thus perform better in your studies. It is not mainly about memorizing, it is about really understanding what business is about that will make you successful in your studies and your work life ahead.

For my Swedish language students: I teach based on real-life scenarios and settings, such as going to the grocery store, meeting a new friend, or introducing yourself to a business partner. The feeling resembles learning lines for a theater play and it is a highly effective method which I learned from studying Japanese at Middlebury College Language Schools. The reason this method is so effective is that the vocabulary is used in a context, the way words normally are used, and these memorized conversations can thereafter be used in a multitude of situations, simply by changing only a few words. You will be able to understand and participate in real conversations from start!

I teach Swedish "around your interests". This means that I will take the time to get to know what interests you, what you would like to be able to say and do in Swedish/Sweden, and then I adapt the lessons to that. For those that are interested in literature, I love to introduce some Swedish literature. For students of Business Swedish, I do not think that you can find a more knowledgeable teacher in business Swedish! For the beginner student wanting to learn some basic language to make friends and travel in Sweden and Swedish speaking parts of Finland, we will focus on everyday conversations on current topics in Sweden and Finland. For kids of all ages, we might take a stance in Swedish Donald Duck cartoons (which are highly popular in Sweden- you can find them in every grocery store!) or talk about Minecraft, school related topics etc. .

As a person, I am down to earth and easy to talk to. There are no "stupid questions" in my book. As your teacher, I am on your team, and I will do my very best for you to succeed in your studies!
