She jumped around too much. She focused on too many things at once. It would’ve been nice to finish one thing and move onto. The next was hard to follow her.

It was an amazing class. She went at a good pace and stopped when people needed clarification on anything. The instructions were delivered in a clear and concise manner and she was really engaging to everyone online. I felt like I was right there in her kitchen!
