Excellent Course

Victoria Safarian

A very insightful course with strategies that can be implemented right away with my students.

Well Explained

Risha Cohen

It was extremely helpful learning about the importance of internal language. I know how it benefits myself and have always wanted to teach these skills to others. Michael did a great job breaking down and explaining the process, as well as providing tools to train students/children. I look forward to implementing the "predict and review" exercise.
