I would specifically work the exercises in this course multiple times. Vary the details but get comfortable with what you’re seeing (known hides) and get Sasha comfortable with the search environment and hide challenges. Be very careful not to cue her where hides are when you know them. As she begins to become more confident you’ll taper back rushing in to pay and allow for some type of communication before you pay. Gradually. As long as she’s comfortable in the search. If you see unease, go back to paying quickly and lowering your criteria for that search.

I hope that makes sense! 🙂

We’ve seen quite a bit of improvement with Sasha since the first video, so good work!
