I couldn't have asked for a nicer teacher. The first 15 minutes Shannon helped me get my Skype working right when I thought it was. I liked the patience she had trying to figure out my problem with Skype so I'm sure she will be the same after hearing more of the off tune sax I have :). Thanks Shannon!

I was very excited to be taking lessons, I played when I was a little girl, & my husband knew this & bought me a violin for Christmas so I could play again... but I was nervous if I would be able to learn since I'm not young! Mr Lin is a great teacher, he is very patient, & made me feel very comfortable... and I'm teachable! Yeah! I did good... I'm going to keep practicing, and can't wait for my next lesson!

Keith is awesome. Keith has a lot of knowledge in the field of finance and economics. He has provided me with both academic and professional advice. Keith maintains a positive attitude during tutoring sessions and really is a pleasure to work with. Studying with Keith makes me not dread studying like all of times. I would highly recommend Keith if you are studying economics, finance, or accounting.

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.

Table Tennis · In home
I am so pleased i came in with virtually no Table Tennis experience besides a few weeks in high school PE, and I am now rallying with coach Morris throughout the entire lesson. interestingly enough I am also noticing my volleyball skills improving! I think what's happened is that I'm training my brain to stay focused on the ball and not take my eyes off it as i hit it.
My game has improved much faster than I expected, and I attribute that to coach Morris not only correcting my technique, but helping learn how to self-correct. this guy knows his stuff and if you listen to him you will improve rapidly as well.
Anyway I feel like I get my money's worth and genuinely enjoy taking lessons with coach Morris. he is always prepared and ready to play. he is full of useful advice and drills to work your week spots.if you really want to learn the game and improve, then Morris is your man.

When I booked my first lesson with Morris, I had no idea that table tennis could be such a great work out and so much fun at the same time. For many years I was a teacher - Junior High School, High School, and college. Morris has all the qualities that make for a great teacher. He is a superb player himself, he understands the learning process, he knows how to teach, and he respects his students. He makes learning to play table tennis a joy. If you want to learn to play table tennis, I enthusiastically recommend Morris.
