Tarek has been teaching electronics classes for my 13 yr old. He is thorough in explaining each step over the  video. Taking classes online needs special skill, especially with Arduino kit.  My son has been looking forward to every class. Showing circuits in the shared screen and explaining and making sure he is wiring things right needs lots of patience. Tarek has been enjoy doing this. Overall my kid has been happy to work with Tarek and will recommend him to anyone.

Good with kids, totally focused on safety first, but works them hard with lots of repetition to see that they are getting it, with good technique.

My 5 year old son is usually averse to trying anything new with a stranger, especially if it involves a physical activity. Tarek was able to put my son at ease almost instantly and he built a great rapport and trust immediately. As a result, my son was totally into the parkour activities and soon realized how much fun it can be! They were out in the backyard for over an hour and we're having so much fun, my 2 year old daughter de used to join them as well!

I would highly recommend Tarek for a host of reasons:
- Establishes great rapport with kids and makes them feel at ease
- Lets kids have fun but with strong focus on safety
- Let's kids learn at their own pace

Tarek is a focused, safe and fun parkour instructor and I would highly recommend him for kids and adults.
