Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Students can take lessons to learn just conversational hindi. They will be able to speak basic sentences from first lesson and in 15-20 lessons, should be able to have a good small conversation. They can learn to read and write, the way I teach students can start reading words from the very first lesson. They should be fluent reader in 15 lessons.
