Here's What Other Writers Thought:
Conor is a superb teacher and communicator. Conor has the rare ability to criticise constructively. None of us ever felt that his criticism was unfair: there was always something to build upon, some nugget of helpfulness. The fact that all of us clamoured for a second course under Conor's tutelage is testament to the high personal and professional esteem in which we hold him. – Philip McGuinness
Conor is a really excellent teacher in my opinion. He manages the group very well; is an affirming and inspiring mentor. – Anonymous
