WHAT GAELEN’S STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"There is no way that I would have made it to the score I did without Gaelen’s help. I cannot thank her enough for all the help and motivation she gave me."
"I really appreciated that Gaelen didn’t chastise me when I fell behind and was always able to find things to teach me even when I wasn’t sure what questions I had."
"[She was] incredibly organized and instructive... could not have had that confidence without her excellent teaching and direction."
