“All I can say is that Alex is a master and our weekend exceeded all of our expectations! Not only was this an amazing and priceless family bonding experience but we each learned things that we will carry with us forever. From the beginning, Alex listened to our interests and helped design a course that would feed our desires. On the ground, he took our excitement for a subject and ran with it – frequently modifying the class to suit the needs and interests of one or another of us. Having such a personalized experience allowed us to gain knowledge collectively and individually and in a way that really made us stronger as a family. Whether walking into the woods or out the front door, we are all that much more confident. We can’t recommend Alex enough – he is a gem of an individual and a truly wonderful teacher". — Tristan W.
