The lessons were explained clearly, and Rachel added additional explanation every time I asked for it. It was very helpful to have Rachel’s responses, via comments in Word, on my assignments. I also deeply appreciated Rachel’s prayerful approach. In some ways, her example of approaching her work by consciously bringing herself into the presence of the Lord was the most valuable thing about the class. Also, the way she clearly and kindly communicated with all of us students was a reminder to me of the way I ought to clearly and kindly communicate with my clients. I also (moving on to the nitty-gritty!) really appreciated her explanation of things like dangling participles and dangling gerunds!
Rachel’s (the instructor’s) feedback was the most helpful. I also like when we practiced copyediting. She answered all of our questions. When she did answer questions, she was positive and graceful. I learned a lot of information.
