My daughter had her first lesson with Katie today. Katie is an excellent teacher; she knows how to motivate the students and how to get the best out of them. She is very kind, knowledgeable, and teaches very efficiently. My daughter loved her, improved a lot, and is looking forward to her next lesson.
