I disagree with whoever is commenting below me. Miss. Maria was having difficulties with the server that day (June 24th/June 25th) so she sent out an e-mail to let us know that and then had it back up and running. The website is totally available now and she replies to lesson scheduling stuff super quick

Miss. Maria is really patient and kind teacher. Lessons with her are very fun and she is also very bubbly. She is also very knowledgeable

I had only one singing class with Maria, and it seemed just fine to me but then she didn't upload as agreed the material I was supposed to practice during the week so when we met again she wanted to give me the same class while we agreed on material to practice to move on... After that I tried to get in touch to change the time of a class and she never got back to me. She seems very busy, can never answer the phone and hardly answers emails, am not feeling am getting any personal attention. Am switching to another more available teacher.

Maria is great! She was very kind but also super professional. She made a website just for my lesson plan (which she tailored to my skill levels/goals). She's amazing :)
