“I loved this class. Not only was the work presented in an easy to understand set of PDFs and, more importantly, wonderfully made videos…but Tam, as instructor, comes across as a truly caring and nurturing person. I’ve never before taken an on-line class where I felt as if I was in the same room as the instructor…and that she really wanted her students to succeed and feel good about themselves. Thanks Tam, for a wonderful learning experience.” –Irene Watts, Las Vegas, NV USA
