"Thank you. You were so great to work with and were always wonderful with the boys. You made handwriting fun. The improvement I saw in both my boys was remarkable and was even noticed by their teacher. After working in their class, I see how difficult it can be when handwriting is getting in the way of true learning. I am so glad we did the coaching sessions now so that my kids can focus on reading and learning, not how to write. " ~ Stefanie A., Olivenhain, CA


“I consider your class a gift to Nicole… She wasn’t even writing some version of her name before this class and now she can legibly write her first name, thank you. … She loves you as a teacher and the class as a whole so keep up the good work and thank you." ~Caron S., Carlsbad, CA


"Our daughter has improved her handwriting and drawing skills immensely through working with Julie. Julie is great at keeping kids' attention through fun games and activities. She has a wide variety of creative techniques to teach handwriting." ~ Laura C., Carmel Valley, CA


"Julia had such a great time participating in Ready, Set, Write. Even more important, she developed some solid foundational practices that she will carry forward with her. Thanks!" ~ Margaret S., Encinitas, CA


"Both of our daughters had a wonderful experience in Ready, Set, Write! Handwriting. It provided them with a solid foundation for basic handwriting skills. Her techniques helped to eliminate the bad habits that I have observed in so many children as a classroom volunteer. Julie incorporated age appropriate games and activities into her coaching styles that both excited and motivated our girls. We saw amazing improvements in their handwriting." ~ Renee R., Carlsbad, CA
