My son has taken few lessons with Grace to help with homework and test prep. My only issue is with the audio quality of the lesson: either she's speaking a bit too far from the microphone or something wrong with her computer microphone. So sometimes it's very hard to hear her although volume on our end is on max. Other than that she's very patient and helpful and my son is gaining confidence.
