    “Etiquette makes life more pleasant for everyone.”

    Parent Reviews

    "My son took SueAnn's etiquette class and we were very happy with the results. He had such a positive experience and learned so much. Ever since he is setting the dinner table every night and points out things that my husband and I do wrong. I highly recommend SueAnn and her program!"

    "I sent my 2 boys (7yrs old) to her class and didn't know what to expect. The first day that they came home, I was pleasantly surprised to see the progress that they had already made. Both of the boys are very active, so I wasn't sure how they would feel about the class. Each time I picked them up they seemed excited and proud about what they had learned in class. Mrs. Brown was great with my boys. I recommend this class to anyone who needs it and/or for anyone looking for a fun activity for their child."

    "My son had a great time in class. He set the table for breakfast this morn and very much enjoyed it – he was so proud!"
    ~ Martha

    "Good morning Mrs. Brown,
    My son had a great time yesterday!! He said he wishes he could go two times a week. :)
    Looking forward to next week."

    "My seven year old son attended the etiquette class. He absolutely loved it. After the first class, he asked if he could attend the class two times per week. He was setting our table for dinner after the first class as well and continues to do so. My husband and I were quite surprised how much he enjoyed the class. We are delighted in the changes he has made in his manners. Thank you for offering such a great class for the little ones!!!"

    Parent Reviews

    "Ms. Brown is the consummate etiquette professional. She is gracious from the way she dresses to the way she teaches the kids. My shy child now makes eye contact when greeting someone and uses a knife and fork to cut food! Highly recommended!
    ~ Talia O.

    "Mrs. Brown is amazing and I fully recommend her class! She was able to get my daughter to do things (eye contact, proper hello, shake hands etc...) in only a few short sessions when I have tried for YEARS! My daughter now sets the table "the proper way" and constantly tells me the "proper way" to do things. My daughter will be taking this class again when she is older to review and reinforce what she has learned. Mrs. Brown provides a place mat showing correct placements. Invaluable information.
    ~ Kris C.

    "This was a fun and very creative way to teach young women etiquette. Mrs. Brown is very professional and is very interactive, positive and kind to the young women making learning fun. The Young Women's experience helped them achieve an appreciation to have good etiquette always. Learning etiquette now will help them be prepared for life experience. It was an exceptional class with a lot of great advice. I would highly recommend this class for all ages of children and youth."
    Thanks again! Mrs. Brown"
    ~ Sandie

    "My teenage son and preteen daughter learned a lot from the class they took at It's All About Etiquette. SueAnn was professional, made the class fun, and added nice touches like homemade goodies at the end of class. More importantly, she was able to communicate with various ages proper etiquette and manners in many different situations. We have practiced them as a family and my children continue to share what they have learned."

    Did a four day summer camp for my seven year-old daughter and couldn’t believe how much she transformed in front of my eyes overnight! My previous cavegirl who couldn’t cut with a knife and crouched to eat on her chair was suddenly eating just like a lady with a napkin in her lap and perfectly cutting with a fork and knife! No tears, no arguing and nagging by me! I don’t know what magic wand Mrs. Brown has but it works like a charm! It was a long drive from where we live but worth it completely and I cannot recommend her enough!
    ~ Andrianne H

    My 10 year old granddaughter attended SueAnn's etiquette summer camp in July 2013, it was a wonderful experience! It was a three day class and my granddaughter enjoyed attending each and every session, looking forward to going back. Sue Ann is very knowledgeable professional and personable. SHE is an example of exactly the etiquette, integrity and manners you want your child to learn. Suzanne is also VERY good with children. Her class preparation was amazing, she had the room set up with beautiful table settings and decorations and gave the children home made treats and also sent them home with tools to use and share with their families. My granddaughter came home after the camp eager to show us her new manners and skills at the dinner table and beyond, it was refreshing to see her exhibit what she learned with enthusiasm. I will be enrolling all of my grandchildren in her summer classes this coming season.
    Thank you Sue Ann!

    Mrs. Brown gave an excellent hands-on etiquette lesson luncheon with my high school-level Girl Scouts this past Monday. She covered everything from "Which bread plate is mine?" to where to put your tea bag after use to how to politely decline a date. She did a great job of backing up rules that the girls hear at home (No cellphones at the dinner table! No texting while driving!) and treated the girls as the young adults they are. We really enjoyed our formal meal together and the girls feel confident that they could hold their own at a business function, university event, wedding, or other formal social occasion. It was worth the fee because these are lessons that will last the girls their whole lives.    Sarah
