Yes, the instructor is detailed and clear in what he is sharing. The only thing that gets to me is that he keeps the cursor moving so fast while he talks. So I don't know if he wants me to follow what he's doing. If he does, he's moving the cursor super fast! But his articulation and speaking speed is fine.
