Mig Welding
Reviewed by Jesse on 5/8/2021
Michelle was very helpful, she is an excellent teacher and welder. Her classes are small, just two people, so she can really gear the time towards your particular interests and needs. She is extremely knowledgable and answered all my questions thoroughly and patiently. The class is totally hands-on. After every try at running a bead she would go over it with us explaining what was good and what was not, and what to do differently. In just those two hours I feel like I got much better at MIG welding and learned a ton. It was a lot of fun. I plan on taking her TIG welding class next.

Though I had done some research, I had not welded before taking Michelle's class. By the end of our time, I had a great understanding of the basics and clear instruction as to how to improve once I left class. Michelle's broad experience in the field drew me to this course, but from the outset it was also immediately apparent that she's a great teacher. As someone who had just done some reading she took me through each step carefully and efficiently. Beginning with prep and safety she helped me understanding how to organize my workspace. When we got to welding she demonstrated technique in a comprehensive way before turning it over to me. I made my fair share of mistakes, but I steadily improved because Michelle helped me evaluate my work and usually offered more than one way to correct any mistakes. By the end of class I understood how to run an ideal bead, but also how to recover from my mistakes. This was a very informative class and I can't recommend it enough for beginners or anyone who is looking to reacquaint themselves with the basics.

Mig Welding
Reviewed by Joseph Matunis on 2/28/2021
I've been meaning to learn to weld for decades and I can't think of a better introduction than the one I got with Michelle. She's remarkably knowledgeable and experienced in a wide range of welding and metal working techniques, and, (more importantly for a beginner student), a skilled, patient and enthusiastic teacher. Her class was a great combination of information about the machinery and mechanics involved, (not only in MIG but in other welding techniques) and well paced and hands-on practice of well scaffolded skills. I feel like the lesson got me exactly the practical skills and information I needed to move forward, carefully, into the world of welding.
