“Key insights into the concepts by the instructor using analogies and past experience. Reviews of student lab work so we could all learn from each other's attempts. Instructor shared additional definitions, print screens and checklists. He truly cares about student engagement. Instructor also solicited questions from class via email at the end of every day and answered them first thing in the morning, so we all learned from each other's questions.”

“There truly aren't enough descriptive terms to describe Mr. Mc Mahon [in a VERY big way]. I swear, the energy, drive, and expertise are just a few areas to bring to the forefront. I feel so fortunate to have received instructions from one of the original Masterminds [and Mastermind he is]. Finally, not only does he share his email address, but he answers it and in a speedy fashion! THANK YOU, MIKE!!”
