"David, thank you so much for bringing Jim here to work with us. I have yet to work with him in my Styles II class (or see him in Heartbreak House), but every time I watch him coach my classmates I want nothing more than to work on my own scene imediately. I become excited to work and grow both as an actor and as a teacher (I teach yoga and I also work as an acting coach for pre-college kids in Denver). Everyone of my classmates that I've spoken to about this seem to feel the same way. He has a wonderful way of making us forget that we are struggling so that we are open to a plethora of new choices. Thank you so much for bringing us this inspiring teacher."
