Keith was a great help to our sales staff. It was apparent that his ultimate desire was to help us succeed in our sales training efforts when he went out of his way to stay in touch with our management staff through phone calls and email. We would recommend Keith because he is a stand-up guy and truly cares about those seeking his expertise. He will also tell you if he is not able to help in an area, his integrity is top of the line.

Keith is a fantastic Instructor. He has helped many of my students understand some very difficult concepts in Finance and I have sought refresher sessions with him and its a pleasure to work with him. Keith can breakdown some really difficult financial models and help you demonstrate efficiency with them. I highly recommend him, as I recommend him to all my students at the University.

Master Russell has competently instructed me in taekwondo, exhibiting learned and sound experience and knowledge. I explained to him my objectives and he has diligently, skillfully instructed me in achieving my taekwondo aims. He is highly patient and innovative in his teaching methodology. He has a written taekwondo manual, depicting techniques from white bell through and beyond black belt. Teaching taekwondo is an enjoyable pursuit for him, making it easy for the student to grasp all taekwondo technique details. Physical, self-confidence and mental strength gains are also derived from his unique teaching style. One would surely profite significantly from taekwondo instructions from master Russell.

Acoustic Guitar · In home
My son had the pleasure of taking guitar lessons for 3 years from Ippolito. His passion for music and teaching style was very inspiring, as well as, his patience and motivating demeanor kept my son interested and wanting to improve his musicianship. Always encouraging, with guided interaction, he kept my son on task during lessons. He was very professional and punctual in all our interactions. Above all, he was appreciative and accommodating to my son's style of music without compromising the basic core instruction for guitar. His goal, as an instructor, was to instill a lifelong passion and appreciation for music. I would highly recommend Ippolito as a guitar teacher. It was a pleasure to work with him.
