I cannot thank you enough for teaching my friends and me the wonderful game of Canasta! I knew just from talking to you on the phone that first time that you were the one for the job. You are a pleasure to deal with - always early, ready and prepared for an informative lesson, but three special qualities really stood out to me: (1) you are impeccably organized; (2) your pre-class and after-class emails to the group were exceptional at reenforcing the various concepts covered; and (3) it is evident that you aren't just going through the motions - you really care that we are able to play on our own when our lessons are over. I will miss seeing you regularly, but feel confident that we are now "mini mastas" and ready to go out on our own. Thank you.
