Testimonials

Rachel is a masterful teacher. The teaching methodology, the course content and its delivery made for a wholly complete learning experience. There was an excellent balance with the learning and teaching, layering that supported being wholly prepared when the program completed. Rachel has an extraordinary talent in creating and delivering a teaching module that ensures the success of its students. - Caren Cook
The 200-Teacher Training was fabulous. The instructors were knowledgeable, kind, experienced, a wealth of information. The course material was very well done, thorough, thoughtful and complete. The layout of the course was really well done. As a high school teacher in my past life and understanding how organize curriculum. I was VERY impressed with the course. An excellent balance, excellent pacing, really well done. - Kristen C.
My learning experience, although intensive, as the name foretold, was one I would take over and over again. Despite the monumental amounts of information being taught, every section was clearly identified and eloquently delivered. So much so, that even though there was an enormous wealth of knowledge to be understood before our final, I found myself not having to study much as I had already retained every bit of information. Rachel is a genius!  - Hannah Todd
