Student Testimonials:

"The instructor makes the course what it is. His teaching style is so encouraging and he makes everyone feel comfortable. He models the spoken word, gives us opportunity to ask and answer questions, uses the book and various audio and video sources and makes the two hours fly by. I looked forward to the class every week and always felt as if I had learned a lot. Greg is just so kind and you can tell he really loves his subject matter and loves sharing it with students." - Former Student
