I can't say enough how impressed I am with your and the other lynda.com tutorials that I have watched. I am a former math teacher, so I'm a pretty tough critic when it comes to teaching techniques. I have recommended the course to others in our company who are using it too.

I've been working through your Drupal videos on Lynda, and just wanted to take a second to say they're great! Most learning/tutorial videos I watch get annoying pretty quickly, but yours have made learning Drupal a lot easier and exciting. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

I'm relieved the site was launched within my 1-month self-imposed deadline. Meeting that deadline is a testament to your [Drupal] teaching skills.
