Honestly I was a little overwhelmed by all the choices of teachers available but we prayed and Desiree is THE BEST choice for my 15 year old daughter. My daughter is so excited for every "hour" lesson. Desiree takes her time and is an excellent and flexible teacher. I am surprised at how quickly she is learning and Desiree works with her to make sure she is pronouncing words correctly. She is accountable to me with a description of each weekly lesson so I know exactly what my daughter is working on. She sends her home with audio and books to work on and stays in touch with me if needed. I feel so blessed to have found Desiree.
