“She made the class environment very relaxed and conducive to learning the material. I very much looked forward to going to Anna's class because of the discussions we had and the knowledge it gave me. She also created assignments that portrayed the topic exactly and required a lot of real world application which is the best way to learn.”

“Anna was able to make me want to go to class! She is passionate in what she does and it shows. She gave real life examples that helped me understand and connect material from various chapters.”
