- 2018.03.16: "THANK YOU! As a physics teacher I've started more highly recommending your videos to students when they are absent to catch up on content. A pair of students were gone for three days (90 min of class a day) at the start of our vectors unit and upon returning said, "I don't even feel behind" which is not usually the case! We then talked about WHY your videos are so helpful. Thanks for sharing common misconceptions, frequent questions, and visual representations as well as traditional notes!"
