A Great Value

by Maria Blanco
I am impressed with the amount of quality information that Maryn has packed into the little course. Bravo!

Smart, accurate; succinctly appropriate

by Lana Henry
I really appreciated Maryn's care for detail. She is compassionate for the beginner who does not understand technical language, but kindly reminds the experienced grant-writer of necessary steps for an A+ Winning Proposal. Many insider tips are shared along with diagrams, pictures and power-point presentations which aid the student in grasping new concepts or retaining the information past the lesson presentation. Maryn uses various methods to help the student not only retain the information, but also review and think through applications which aid the student to incorporate the new terminology and concepts into practice. I really enjoyed this course, even though all the material is now covered in a newer version which uses more advanced technology and is much better for the audio and visual senses.
