Scott is an amazing teacher who really knows how to make the student comfortable and the lesson enjoyable. He’s very perceptive about my strength, weakness and goal and really knows how to help me improve over our remote session. He also really cares about his students and is committed to getting the best out of them. I highly recommend him as an acting teacher!
