Very good first impression of Justin. My 9 year old son really liked him.
From my first class, I have a good feeling choosing Justin as my teacher, and I am confident he'll prepare me well to reach my goal and have the desired result on my TOEFL exam. The communication with him is at ease and he is very accommodating.
I had a really nice time with Justin, very nice guy, talkative, can have discussion about everything, has also different programs to make sure you can have a better vocabulary, grammar or that you can improve your speaking. I recommend him highly!
