Advanced Chemistry: College Level
"Thank you so much for another wonderful year. You have influenced [our daughter] greatly for the better. Both her father and I are thrilled that she had the opportunity to study under you. You opened doors which may have never been opened had it not been for your enthusiasm for the subject and clear method of conveying material. I hope that one of my other children will have the opportunity to study with you in the future."
