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.

I've had a few lessons with Sonya under my belt now and I could not be happier with her as my instructor. I came into this with very specific things I wanted to learn or touch on and she has been very knowledgeable. I'm not an absolute beginner, more of an advanced beginner and she adapts her lesson plans accordingly. She knows her stuff, she's great at teaching, flexible and just an all around cool chick. Money and time well spent.

This is definitely a subject that requires patience to teach online! Sonya is well suited for this job both in patience and in knowledge, and in creativity to teach with a difficult format. You won’t be disappointed.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

She is a fantastic teacher and will structure your program based on your needs and learning style. She makes learning a lot of fun so it doesnt seem like work. She knows 5 languages so i might have to learn more than just romanian.

About Matt
Hello! My name is Matt! I love teaching technology, whether it's setting up a Minecraft server on a Raspberry Pi, Cool hacks and shortcuts on mobile devices, or simply, how to be better with securing your information.

I have spent 10 years travelling the United States, teaching people how to understand regulations regarding IT security (HIPAA), as well as how to make their day better! When I have done training presentations, I love to give "real word examples" that keep people interested, such as showing people what an actual computer virus looks like. I strongly believe that training needs to be fun and entertaining, to be successful! I also cannot emphasize the fact that I am fully aware that people may need to ask questions that they may feel is "dumb". No such thing. I have spent years teaching nurses, where a lot of them do not ha
ve a lot of technical proficiency, but we have to keep in mind, I can fix a server, they can fix a human! I have taken the task of learning Python on my own, and finding real world examples, have been instrumental in learning, and others I have shared with that has had the same success.

I also believe in transparency. I will only teach what I am confident in. My lifetime has been spent trying to learn everything I can about all the area's of IT, I have become very confident in a lot of areas. If I do not know the answer to something, I find it. I get immense satisfaction in being able to help someone either learn something, they have really been struggling with, or fix something that no-one else has been able to do, and all that, with some laughter and smiles!

In all of my training's, I teach people very good ways to use resources to continue/maintain the area's that you are trained on.
