See what people are saying:

My (grown) son brings up your session with him at least once every time I see him. When we went to dinner with friends, I noticed his behavior has really changed.  Thanks, D.M.

My daughter learns something new each class. It is so nice to have her politely remind me that my elbows should never be on the table among other reminders. No matter how well traveled, experienced or trained our children are, Pat has a way of bringing out the best in them." B.P.M.

"I appreciate all the great feedback on the interview with the press. I am now more prepared to be interviewed. I think the feedback will very much assist me in future interviews ..." C.H.

"Pat Durham is an exceptional instructor in social etiquette for our students. Regardless of the ages or size of the group, Mrs. Durham effectively and graciously instructs them in the necessary skills for them to successfully navigate any social situation. Our younger students grew in confidence through guided practice in personal introductions and table etiquette. Our older students benefited from her patient and persistent instruction in how to love one's neighbor through gracious deference to others. What is remarkable about Mrs. Durham is her rapport with the students. They love her and appreciate her wit and warmth. Her wealth of experience and Christian perspective only adds to the quality of her work.

I wholeheartedly recommend Pat Durham as an etiquette coach for any student of any age, in any circumstance."  - L. Collins,  Covenant Academy
