Just had my first lesson. I have never played a musical instrument or have any musical training. James made me feel comfortable right away. I thought I made a very good start. Feeling like I will really enjoy this and am confident I will pick this up faster than I thought.

James is very kind and mellow enough to make the most insecure person feel confidant and energetic enough to be motivating and fun!!!! Warm natured.... and his wife is so pretty!!! I could never sing infront of anyone but he made me feel so natural the first day!!! He is not pushy and does not make you feel rushed or nervous! If you are shy and know nothing about music this is the man to schedule with! Cool cat!!!! Ty James!!!! Can’t wait for more!

Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him.

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !
