My son and I took his private class. Jim was very knowledgeable and patient. His focus was entirely on us and his easy-going manner put us at ease. I will be taking more classes from him.

What do you give a man for his 65th birthday? Nothing better than trying something new. Jim is an awesome teacher and you will actually make something to be proud of. Can't wait to do it again!
