I noticed that Kitty gestures hardly at all and that Jennifer gestures a lot.. Too much of "talking" with your hands can be distracting; too little leads to the bored viewer... IMHO. Great Show -- I see you elsewhere on the web and like your content, topic choices, and presentations very much. Thanks for requesting feedback AND thanks for listening! Suzanne
The O'Neil Sisters
Thanks for watching and writing in, Suzanne! Funny, we go back and forth with who gestures more. Glad you like our stuff! Cheers, Jennifer & Kitty

Useful tips. Never thought of the idea thet you would like the intro and outro at the end.
The O'Neil Sisters
Thanks for watching our lesson, Razia! Yes, filming the intro and outro is so much easier after filming the body of the lesson. You already know what you're going to say! Best of luck with your lessons!
