  • Chris Orfanidis

    Tim Coleman is the best instructor I had so far at CGMA. Actually he is something more than just an instructor. He is a mentor.

  • Ricardo Medina

    Tim is easily the best online instructor I’ve had. Maybe even the best teacher I’ve ever had. He is knowledgeable, patient, thorough in his explanations and takes an interest in the students.

  • Brett Phelps

    Tim is an amazing teacher, and I’m so glad I took this class. He does a fantastic job of explaining Python, which is something I’ve struggled with in the past.

  • Aaron Raeck

    Extremely quick and thoughtful in his responses to forum and QA questions. Almost invariably going beyond the scope of each question to give further insight.

  • Andrew Brownridge

    The course content was very clear, with explanations of the workflow that were easy to understand. The content was paced very well and provided plenty of challenges to help learn the methodological and analytical skills required in this occupation.

  • Eric Hug

    What the course description doesn’t mention is that Tim also focuses on how to rig in a far more Professional Manner throughout the course. He does this by sharing tools he’s developed in his day-to-day use and breaks them down for those interested in becoming professional riggers.

  • Diana Donado

    In this course, I had 2 different instructors: the one in the lecture videos and another one during the Q&A. They both complemented each other and gave me different ways of doing things or point of views, which is very good.
