I want to thank you for all the knowledge and valuable information you shared though this course. I have been excitedly preparing materials for my class in the fall!

I just wanted to share with you how happy I feel about learning with you. You are inspirational and fun!!  I am teaching an extracurricular reading class to primary and early elementary children and I love to get new and better ways to do it.  Taking these courses with you provides me with much of what I need and want.  Thank you!

I decided to take the course because I wished to have more information to help my daughters with reading.

I couldn’t be happier at what Maren Schmidt presented. It is exactly what I always dreamed as a learning method. It is very well structured, consistent and above all fun.

Besides, I got personalized tips on how to help my one daughter who has a learning disability.

The course is absolutely amazing!

Thank you so very much!
