"I would say that a huge strength of Alan McMillan is that he's an absolute expert in this subject, and he does a great job at keeping students intrigued and attentive. I would say another strength for Alan is that he is unbelievably passionate about teaching students this information, and the students realize that, and in turn become passionate about learning the information."
