Maureen is super fun to learn from and I feel like I'm learning so fast! She is able to customize the lessons to where I need to be, and even when we get sidetracked by talking about cats, I get practice, because she asks me questions about my cat that relate to our lesson. I'm planning on buying another lesson package when I'm done with this one, because I've learned so much in only 5 or 6 weeks!

Super nice and taught me the most important signs right away - "I don't understand, please sign that again!" I'm so happy that I chose her, Maureen is super kind and patient.

Maureen is an amazing instructor. In the 5 weeks I worked with her she communicated back and forth with me via email every week in between sessions, sharing resources with me and following up on questions I had asked. From the very beginning, she asked me questions to get an understanding of what I was hoping to learn and take away from my lessons with her. We worked on a variety of skills from manual and non-manual classifiers to storytelling to grammar. I will definitely come back to Maureen for more!
