« Desmond is simply the best teacher I've ever had the privilege of being taught by. He is patient knowledgable and most important of all, effortlessly makes sessions engaging, interesting and enjoyable. I have no doubt I would not be in the position I am in now academically except for his teaching and any student would benefit just as I have from his instruction. »
