Learning with Katherine.
“Getting the most out of any class is a burden the student must carry. However, when the instructor eases that burden, productivity increases to the student’s advantage. Katherine does just that. She eases the struggle of learning a new subject. She does not just present the material but she walks you through it. She does not just hope that you learn the subject but through feedback she makes sure that you understand it. Her satisfaction is not based on how well she knows the subject but how well you learned it. All of these characteristics make her the ideal instructor.”
“Katherine . . . you are a breath of fresh air. Your mannerism, style and approach are enchanting and professional. All students are blessed by your presence and knowledge. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality and delivering a breathtaking course.”
“You are such a great teacher! You kept me up and interested the entire time . . . usually I’m very sleepy during these trainings since I normally work off-shift. Thanks again!”
“You bring such soul to your work.”
