      Reviews

      This was an amazing experience. From the preparation, beforehand to get me to focus on what I wanted to achieve. When I then needed guidance, you were really patient and made me feel more competent.
      I was out of my comfort zone and I sensed it. However, you reassured me and paid me multiple compliments on my ability and creativity.
      It is said that the best teachers show you where to look but not what to see.
      You're an amazing teacher.
      Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
