I attended evening classes at Hollywood Hills and Renee Despins was my teacher. Having not been in a classroom setting for over 25 years, made the whole process quite daunting. Could I actually take 3 college level classes, pass them, and pass a state exam? By the end of my first class with Renee, I knew this was going to be a good experience. And by the end of 2 weeks, I knew I was really learning something. Not only was I understanding, she made it enjoyable too. There definitely was a lot of studying to be done outside of class, but always ringing in my ears are Renee’s phrases No Darn Fooling Around and The servient tenant Serves, among many others. These sayings were invaluable to me throughout my studies. I took my exam today, and passed.
