"I was really happy with my work with Jessica because we went through all of the material in a very organized manner. I also really liked how she kept the notes from every session in order to identify common trends, which really helped me, especially as the test day approached. I also was given plenty of material and practice to do every week, and the culmination of learning new grammar and practicing helped me earn a better understanding of the latin language in general."
