Nina is a great teacher. When she realized that most of thy class spoke English she switched immediately to English, while still explaining in French as necessary, and when the other students arrived she switched back to French for most of the class but still helped the English speakers. Her instructions were clear and the way she set up the class made it so that no one was waiting for tools, there were different tasks to do. She asked for permission to help ppl instead of just taking things and doing it herself, but mostly she would give a demo and then let you try again. She went around the class and checked with everyone and helped as needed. She responded well to different preferences people had, allowing some to work on their own more even though they probably needed the help (even though it was offered), and helped those who asked for it while checking in on everyone. I really felt like I learned the beginning of a skill and could complete similar projects on my own. Nina speaks English very well and explains things well in both languages. Her class was one of the best put together classes, in steps, in explanation, in timing, as well as having a good amount of detail about upholstery in general. Also really appreciate the lesson paper.
