Mrs. Odell has been a God-send to our family. We have been homeschooling for 9 years and, although I am a certified teacher and was a NBCT for 10 years, I am not comfortable teaching the advanced writing that is necessary for my high school students. Writing, reading comprehension and proper grammar are so important for their future success and Mary is such an insightful and extraordinarily passionate instructor in these fields. She consistently strives to motivate and help each and every one of her students reach their full potential. Her invaluable teaching techniques afford her students the tools necessary to improve and succeed. My kids have thoroughly enjoyed her calm but challenging classes. We love Mary Odell and the enthusiasm she has when she presents the IEW curriculum.
