See Jeff Price’s full bio on the AAAE website. 

“…it’s obvious (that Jeff) has been doing this awhile and has a passion for teaching, and finding effective ways to prepare students.   While there was an incredible amount of information crammed into a week’s time, the way the program/class was designed, presented and organized, and the methods Jeff used and encouraged us to utilize to prepare for the exam, were a huge help.    It was one of the better classes I have taken, and one that I actually enjoyed – which makes learning that much easier.” – Brian L. Wayne County Airport Authority


“Thanks so much for your efforts this past semester…the CM exam was tough but thanks to your masterful “leading edge” teaching strategies, and wonderful way of making complex concepts easy to understand, I am now an AAAE A.M.!

I have to be honest, the test was very tough, and I had some doubt if I was successful, especially after falling four points short twice! You can imagine my surprise when I saw my score of 86.67! You helped me gain a plus 20 points!!!!

Thanks again, and please feel free to share this testimonial with anyone whom you feel may be encouraged!” – Lou S. Department of Aviation, Farmingdale State College
