What people say about George's teaching:
-George is fabulous!! Very knowledgeable and a great teacher! He is able to teach while working with the machines at the same time!! A lot of folks can't do that.
-Outstanding! One of the best instructors I had. His demeanor, explanations and timing to cover all material in allotted time was the best.
-If I come out of one of these classes with a little gem it was a success and there were several.
-Best "Instructor" as far as explaining the techniques. Had the time allotted down to the minute where he had covered all the material in his outline in the two hour block of time. Had great answers for the few questions asked. He explained this subject matter that good. It was very apparent that he was a shop instructor professionally.
Education is the most important tool you'll invest in.
