Tanja is a great teacher. She is interesting, knowledgeable, prepared, helpful, and sensitive. She facilitates good class discussion and holds a safe space where people feel comfortable sharing difficult subjects. She is very effective in building community. The workshop conclusion of this class and the constructive feedback was very helpful and meaningful to me.
