Quoted from anonymous evaluations by adult students:

Jim was great, funny, engaging and extremely patient. Would recommend him as an instructor for anyone, especially beginners.

I especially liked how he paced introducing new material (baby steps!) and how he gave us exercises so we could work at our own speed.

What a tremendous instructor. This was my first class with him, and I hope it’s not the last. Absolutely brilliant.

Very well prepared and helpful. Felt like he answered everyone’s questions, but didn’t get the class bogged down while doing so.
