Helaine was the MOST patient teacher I could have imagined! Canasta was overwhelming at 1st...so many rules! But Helaine broke it down week to week into manageable chunks of information. By the end of her lessons, I felt less intimidated and more excited about playing on my own! Knowing that she is always there, whether via phone or email, offers reassurance as I continue on my journey to master canasta! 

Thanks again Helaine; you truly inspired me to play something other than mahjong!
