  • Richard Fires

    Incredible instructor who knows the right balance of encouragement and challenging his students to get the best out of them. They go above and beyond and are a true partnership in the learning process. They are open and students are encouraged to ask questions and really understand and learn. I highly recommend them no matter your level of understanding you will not be disappointed.
