/ Testimonial


Small class size so we could ask all the questions we wanted and get detailed explanation and influence what was covered in class. Loved the concept of this Spencerian class as well, very suited to what I wanted to learn and my current skill level. Appreciate Martha's expertise as well as encouraging teaching style!
