What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“Sign up for a life changing experience”

Lani and Jennifer are fantastic teachers and role models. If you take this course from them, you would be learning from the best! They are able to meet all learners at whatever level of coaching experience they have had prior and are able to effectively balance challenge with encouragement. They are also excellent at building a strong sense of community … and able to bring even the most hesitant individuals out of their shells.

“I was amazed! 5 stars”

Jennifer is very responsive to student needs – I am amazed at the sheer amount of work it must take for her to respond so thoughtfully to each participant’s posts. She always responds with a follow up question or idea that supports a continuing dialogue around the learning. In addition to her direct support of learning, she also organizes a very thorough library of support tutorials that one can return to at anytime, even after the course has ended. I have often gone back to the course space, even more than a year later, to access these video libraries. What I find most helpful is that each video is quite short and addresses a single task. Whatever the question, there’s usually a “how to” video somewhere in the library. If there isn’t, Jennifer will create one before the next class. Finally, when I’ve encountered problems that aren’t addressed in the library, a quick email to Jennifer directly always results in a timely response. I’m amazed at how much effort Jennifer puts into answering specific questions to support our learning and implementation of these tools in our classrooms.

“The Way To Learn”

This course was a terrific learning experience. It’s 21st century adult learning that can powerfully impact and improve your skills. The best aspect of the course was the instructor – Jennifer. She is in the real world as a current practicing professional who understands what educators need for their professional development. Self-paced and exciting, this is the way to learn.
