My first chess lesson with Atousa was WONDERFUL! Besides being a chess Grandmaster with a thorough grasp on the entire game, she was also personable, engaging, encouraging, and willing to work with me (although I am not a very good player yet). I thoroughly enjoyed working with her, and am looking forward to future lessons and becoming a better player.

"Donna worked with my teen daughter (with Asperger's) sew a cos play costume. I very much appreciated her patience and skill with the sewing project. She was very good at explaining every step that needed to be taken, along with sewing techniques. Most of all appreciated her promptness and organization in setting up sewing times. The outfit turned out wonderful and fits perfectly. My daughter had so much fun wearing it for her birthday event. Definitely will go back for future sewing lessons. Thanks Donna!"
