Great Teacher !
Anne-Louise explained everything I wanted to learn. Prior to the class I stated what topics I would like to cover and she did just that. she used examples and drawings to make my understanding much vivid. I look forward to having more classes with her.
Wynndi D.
Anne-Louise has a very intuitive approach to teaching which matched my kinesthetic learning style. She helped me learn how to use my machine and I will work on a project so she can help answer any questions at the next lesson. We were definitely a fit. Thanks.

Yu-Gi-OH!, Yu-Gi-OH! Trading Card Game, YGO, Yugioh Trading Card Game. I love the yugioh Trading card game so much I became a YugiTuber known as "Jam1" from Jam1TCG. I am a 90s kid and grew up with the yugioh tv show. I have played the game since the early 2000s and I love it so much I never really stopped playing it. Its hard 1st starting out but that's why you should have a good teacher if you want to learn how to play yugioh.

Had to write a separate review for this subject. Jamone taught me step-by-step how to use my Cannon Rebel EOS T5. I am a youtube vlogger, and I was looking to create higher quality videos for my viewers. Jamone gave me tons of camera knowledge to better my videos. Thanks!

"I've used Athan for several lessons now and he's become a friend. Happy to write this review for him (though I secretly don't want other players to get the same coaching :)). I can't recommend him enough as he's saved me tons of money and has made me much more. Athan is so smart and analytical. I already knew how to play before we started but I wasn't winning much if at all, in my home games and in casinos both in cash games and in tournaments. Athan came with a completely custom lesson plan and helped break apart how to think about the game in general, how to play players, the math, specific leaks/weak spots, and different situations. Just try one lesson and I think you'll see the same."
