I've had 3 courses with Tim so far, including the Six Sigma Certificate Course. In my work and educational experience I've had the fortune of observing many styles of instruction and leadership.  Tim has displayed strength in both these areas.  He was very well organized and prepared for each class, provided ample breaks between intense learning sessions, and clearly had is heart on ensuring that all students captured the lesson(s).

Tim is an obviously seasoned businessman, and provided a continuous flow of real life business/corporate examples throughout all three courses,  allowing students to better understand the strategy behind the Six Sigma & Data Analytics tools that were being taught.  I see him as being an incredible asset to Harper in the coming years, and am thankful for the opportunity to have had him as an instructor.
