Instructor is responsive to questions. Respectful. Information is dense and condensed, but also basic. My own skill level may be beyond what is taught in these videos. The instructor covers a lot of territory. Sometimes it comes across as more of an outline. I looked for examples, and didn't find them (e.g. ways to organize notes and bits of information.) I think the instructor's commitment to teaching well comes across. She invites honest criticism, and asks her students to do the same.
Thank you, Rachel, for many useful insights!
