I absolutely love Kelly's teaching style. She explains things clearly and allows me to do all the steps myself, while overseeing and giving me tips. She also lets me choose my projects so I'm motivated to work on each project. She is also very accommodating with my schedule and kiddos who are sometimes in the vicinity.
