Instructor Profile: Anthony Sell

Anthony Sell has over thirty years of teaching experience, having worked with thousands of students, ranging from 3 years to 76 years in age, including a very special few with unique learning disabilities and physical challenges.

"The question I ask my students most often is 'What are you doing this for?' It's a question they will revisit often throughout the course of their training, because only by clearly defining what your objectives are will you ever have a chance of obtaining them."
