      "I completed 'Use hygienic practices for food safety' a few weeks ago. The instructor was personable, experienced and able to bring these qualities to her teaching of this subject. I particularly appreciated her ability to apply the material to the individual circumstances of each participant, highlighting aspects of food handling that was important for each of our situations. Thanks, Susan"

      "The teacher was very kind and gave the class passionately. So I could also take the class harder. Before taking the class, I was worried a lot because English is not my first language, but I was so grateful to my teacher's consideration for non-English speakers like me. I really recommend the rsa class here."

      "The teachers who guided me were very friendly, kind and professional. She tried to be friendly with all of her students, asking what they were here for, and it was very impressive. And she seems to be taking responsibility for her own work, so the quality of her classes is high. Also, with lots of questions and roleplaying, we were able to learn RSA in a more familiar way. The class was fun and perfect. thank you"
