AT FIRST THE LESSON SEEMED IDEAL BUT AS IT WENT ON AND PICKED UP SPEED, IT BECAME HARD TO FOLLOW. ALSO, IT'S FRUSTRATING THAT I HAVE QUESTIONS BUT NO ONE TO ASK.
EXPLANATIONS OFTEN WENT TO THINGS I UNDERSTOOD, BUT NOT TO WHAT I NEEDED TO KNOW.

I do not know the name of this instructor, but she is FABULOUS!! When I log onto Mindbites to listen to a sample lesson, I always listen for her voice because she is truly exceptional. Her explanations are always crystal clear and she speaks slowly so that the student can easily understand and follow what she is teaching.

Please give her name so that we can find her lessons.
