What Students Say About Nolan McKew

Nolan is one of the most talented, dedicated, patient, encouraging, and enthusiastic individuals I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with. It is an absolute privilege to have him as an instructor because he constantly inspires me to push myself, offers me wonderful techniques and guidance to focus myself and my objectives, and always makes me feel like a star (even on the days I’m flailing around like a limp fish).
