When I create 'feedback' method I get 'name praise is not defined'. I can get why

class Student: name = "Elisa"

def praise(self):
    return "You inspire me, {}".format(self.name)

def reassurance(self):
    return "Chin up, {}. You'll get it next time!".format(self.name)

def feedback(self, grade):
    if grade > 50:
        return praise(self.name)
    if grade <= 50:
        return reasurance(self.name)

Inside a class, you can use a "self." prefix to refer to other parts of the same class — you already did this to reference "name". Try "self.praise".
