Kevin Ahern is a really good teacher, I really enjoy his lectures, but sometimes it's hard to follow the lecture due to the presentation picturing one thing and him talking about something else. And also when he's talking about about the presentation I wished he had some sort of pointer so I would be easier to know what structure he's talking about????????
