I Can Tat!

“I took several weeks viewing the videos, practicing between sessions. Georgia's instruction was clear and easy to view. I loved that she didn't edit out her 'oops' moments - it made me feel like my oops were perfectly ok and I could keep trying. Her use of humor was fabulous!” - TONYIA LITTLE
