TESTIMONIALS

  1.  

As the Administrative Assistant for the Cops ‘N Kids Reading Center, Inc. and having a long history of working with children as well as adults in general, I highly recommend SAVVY School of Etiquette.  Fawn Funderburg, Founder & Owner has a wealth of knowledge that she is eager to share with young adults trying to make their way and discover what type of individual they strive to become. I’ve attended one of her classes and can personally vouch for her rapport with young adults. 

They were very receptive to improving themselves personally as well as professionally.  Older adults were present as well and we all learned a few things during Fawn’s etiquette class.  So if you are in the market for self-improvement, sign up for Fawn Funderburg’s SAAVY School of Etiquette! You will not be disappointed!!

My teenage son was unable to attend his session, so I attended in his place. I am so happy I did. The session educated the participants on the etiquette of handshakes. I was very impressed that Ms. Funderburg addressed the etiquette of handshakes in persons who have disabilities.  As a Medical Doctor, I know that the subject she discussed occurs  in real life for persons with disabilities. Great class: up to date and informative!!!

I really appreciate you and your SAVVY School. I think etiquette is so important to our little ones. This is a "lost art"  and I am so relieved that you are here to bring it back. I will continue to spread the word.

At SAVVY I learned about table setting, proper greetings, and formal introductions. It was pretty interesting and valuable to learn about these things.     Valerie H., 14



Dear Mrs. Fawn     Thank you so much for teaching me. I enjoyed your class.

Some things I would like to tell other kids who are thinking of taking your class are:

  • it is fun!
  • Mrs. Fawn is very nice 
  • No one thinks you have bad manners
  • Probably will make new friends.

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to take 

Mrs. Fawns class.
