What Others Say:

"Nick was a fantastic teacher. I loved getting useful notes from him, and I loved how seriously he takes the class."

"Nick inspires us to take ourselves seriously in the class, while still having a lot of fun. I’ve learned a ton in Nick’s class and can’t recommend it enough."

"Nick was fantastic and a ton of fun!"

"Nick is great. He is relaxed, and he explains concepts and exercises in an easily digestible way. His astute feedback was instrumental in helping me tweak my short comings while trying to grasp the information throughout the last 8 weeks. What I also really appreciate is that Nick used feedback to praise our work in class (and in the showcase!), which is a HUGE confidence booster when you're in the hotspot. "
