5.0 stars Chris was very helpful and made sure we were all comfortable with each activity before advancing to the next. Class was easy to follow along and moved at a good pace. He was open to customizing the learning plan to our needs. Most importantly, he made it interactive which let me keep my focus throughout the entire course. I definitely learned a lot today. Thank You! (seems like the strongly agree should be the first option....I almost picked disagree by accident)
