Jeffrey was an awesome instructor for my family (my husband, I, and my 11 and 7 year old boys). We spent two days (two half-day sessions) with Jeffrey and went from zero experience to being able to ski down the slope with confidence. Very memorable and fun experience! Thank you, Jeffrey! Jeffrey was very patient and his guidance and demonstrations made the boys feel encouraged and had fun as well. He encouraged us throughout the lesson. Boys were proud of what they had accomplished by the end of the day. Jeffrey was wonderful to work with, but it would be helpful to have an initial plan before each session and then after one session, make adjustments to the plan for the next session based on each one' s progress. Another area to improve: I thought the check-in process for the snow lessons at Granlibakken was a bit confusing. It would be nice to have some clearer directions, such as where to check in with rental and where to check in without rental. Thanks for the great lessons, and we look forward to learn from Jeffrey probably next time!

Most appreciated: Demonstration, guidance, feedback, and patience. We never felt rushed even though we may have been slow. Thank you!

It was nice having Jeffery as our kids' teacher. Both of them had big smiles on their faces at the end of the day and said they thought Jeffery was really nice. He even swapped out my son's skis when he thought the rentals he had were a little too large for him. Really supportive teacher and our kids had a really nice day, thanks.

Jeffrey had a positive attitude and fun energy right from the start. My kids said they like Jeffrey because he’s easy-going and not too strict. They added that he helped them feel better whenever they fell in the snow. We appreciate Jeffrey’s patience and taking them for a water break when they asked. He seems to be skilled at connecting with kids. Highly recommend Jeffrey!

Jeffrey was wonderful to work with. He paid great attention and followed our written notes about our daughter's personality and needs. As a result, our daughter who can be timmit at first , immediately took to him and the sport of skiing. To our surpize, she even went up the lift on her own to the top and was not scared to go down the slope with Jefferys help and even on her own towards the lower end of the slope. She was not scared and did not cry even when she fell. Our daughter loved her lesson and is hooked on skiing and we believe her first time ever success on skis is partially due to Jefferys kind and patient demeanor and ability to work with a 5 year old's needs. We as parents also liked Jeffery as a person and professional. Thank you Jefferey! We are looking forward to see you again on our next trip to Tahoe!

We couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! Jeffrey had his work cut out for him…we had zero experience skiing and were all a little nervous to try it. It was me and my three kids ages 6.12, and 14. He immediately made it fun and taught us all the basics. Before we knew it we were skiing down the slopes! It was the best experience and seeing the smiles on my kids faces meant everything. I would recommend Jeffrey to everyone!

Jeffrey was perfect! Great teacher- very articulate and great ability to tune in to his students and help them learn and improve. He taught myself and my 11 year old today. We were both beginners and he helped us improve tremendously. We both improved significantly thanks to his teaching and he was a lot of fun to work with.
