“What an instructor! I have taken many classes in my day but Kayleigh is a cut above! Knowledgeable, helpful, articulate! Delivers curriculum in a manner that is fun and exciting and memorable!”

“Ms. Farrell has been an invaluable asset to our teaching community. Her attention to detail while teaching and /or improving curriculum has been impeccable.”

“Kayleigh has a gift, a way of breaking down complex information and delivering it in a clear and simplistic way. She is knowledgeable, clear and one of the best instructors I have ever had.”

“Kayleigh has an absolute amazing ability to deliver the information from this course in a way that really sticks. There were many times that I would read something and have a general idea but still with so much confusion. Then Kayleigh would touch on the topic and would be able to just marry the theory and the practical together for me in a way that it never left me. Kayleigh also embodies professionalism and if you're willing to show up and do the work, she will be your biggest cheerleader. I truly enjoyed having Kayleigh as an instructor.”
