“Sean was an awesome instructor. It's very obvious that the instructor training here is intense as well. He knew exactly what he was doing and had a very knowledgeable response to every question posed during the class. What was even better is that he knew the ORIGIN of the questions so he could answer at a core, foundational level rather than just a surface level answer. That's good teaching! We all loved Sean's snazzy attire. However, his knowledge is irrefutable, and his presentation is filled with little Sean-isms, which makes the presentation even more entertaining. I could listen to the material on its own, but with Sean's personality behind it, I found the material even more engaging. Thanks, Sean!!! Great classes!”
