Overall, Ellie was patient, encouraging and intuitive. I really appreciated that Ellie first took the time to show us, step by step what we were learning, took the time to be sure we understood and asked us to repeat the steps back to her, before we sat down to do it on our own. When I made a mistake, she suggested I just leave it and continue on, but she could tell I preferred to start over and she encouraged me to do what made me happy with the final product rather than what she would do. She was laid back and free with praise. She was very aware that everyone has different learning styles which is rare to find.
