    Carl is an exceptional teacher! He makes effective use of the time, generates and shares a lot of resources, and explains everything clearly. He provides positive and constructive feedback that encourages / motivates to continue practicing. I would highly recommend to anyone

    Carl is a wonderful teacher. We covered a lot of ground in my first lesson, but at a pace that was comfortable for me. Looking forward to the next lesson!
