"I love Mrs. Derham!!! My only regret is that the class is over. I also love how easy your website is to use and the quality of classes offered."
"[Mrs. Derham] is very friendly and conversational, pays attention to the students, keeps it at a level not overwhelming to a middle schooler but is clearly challenging them with some new concepts. This is the first time my daughter has taken a 'real' course and it is perfect because it is a gentle experience but she knows she is learning things."
