Comments from actual customers:

“I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your presentation at our library. You were extremely professional, and you adapted easily to last minute changes. I thought that you were excellent in both your teaching and entertainment skills. It is no small thing to maintain a gentle authority over more than 100 young kids but you were able to do so masterfully. I think we all learned something about ASL even though it seemed as though we were just having fun.”

“Thank you very much for your entertaining and informative performance at my daughter’s school today.  I think the kids really enjoyed how interactive and “hands-on” it was.  My daughter retold the whole thing at the dinner table tonight!”

“Thank you so much for your spirited and entertaining sign language program…you managed to hold the attention of a very rambunctious group of 80+ with a combination of positive reinforcement, good humor, and solid information.”

Book by May 31, 2014 and receive 15% off any program.
