add at up to her plethora of ideas. She showed great dedication since
day 1. She seized every opportunity to teach. During the past month
she has taken over almost 3 lessons per week. She helped a lot during
group work and in helping students on an individual basis.
She knew the student needs and limitations and found ways to work
