"I only got a 91, I thought for sure after your class I would have aced it! As an apprentice instructor of 12 years, I have to compliment you on the class. It flowed great and time went by quickly. We had just enough discussion on some of the topics and you did a good job of pointing out what we needed to know. I'll recommend you in the future. Thanks" - MS
