Nathan was awesome. I had very little sleep as I have PTSD and have a difficult time learning, especially on 3 hours sleep. But he made it make sense, completely memorable and easy for me.

I came and got the manual beforehand so I could pre-read. I found this helpful as I had some context and knowledge before the information was delivered. Nathan was a great instructor. Would take a course from him again.
