Reading Sarah’s comments, I felt a sense of relief that I had chosen a professional to help me. It turns out I regularly made grammatical errors that I wasn’t aware of. Sarah’s manner is enthusiastic and friendly, yet clear and precise. This experience has made the intimidating subject of grammar much clearer, and a lot less scary. I’m so glad I did it!
