Perfect! Mari is a superb rollerskating instructor! She is very skilled, patient, and great at guiding you through bespoke lessons to help you achieve your skating goals. Learning how to skate with Mari brings even more joy to skating!
Perfect! Mari was really great. She helped me with certain things I am trying to work on and she gave me other suggestions to practice. Right away it helped a lot with things I was struggling with. I definitely want to continue the virtual lessons and have some in person lessons as well. Very pleased with my lesson with Mari :-)
Great connection - even if the class was virtual over zoom - we covered so much! I am glad the drills I suggest helped you nailing down backward crossover and pivoting.
Perfect! Started out as an absolute beginner and I'm so happy I chose Mari! She has very kind and encouraging energy to make me feel more confident in my skates.
Great teaching you how to roll :-) and happy you decided to start this new practice!
Perfect! So sweet and talented! An amazing instructor, I learned so much in one hour!
Always a pleasure having students like Elisha and Arielle. They are committed to learning while having fun. The best attitude!
Perfect! Mari was very patient and encouraging! I could hear her well, she showed me how to do things as many times as I needed, and watched as I practiced over and over, giving me great feedback. I look forward to my next lesson with her!
Great virtual class! I enjoy your enthusiasm and motivation in taking your skills to the next level.
Perfect! Mari is an excellent instructor. She helped me feel more confident in my skates and within the first fifteen minutes of our first lesson I had already learned a few techniques. I had so much fun and can't wait for our next lesson!
Great teaching you how to go downhill on inline skates and different breaking techniques. I am glad I had the opportunity to add a little rolling dance move at the end of the lesson. That was fun!
