Andrew was extremely unprofessional. He made me feel uncomfortable; he made inappropriate comments and remarks and he came on to me. I can only imagine how parents who hire this man to be alone in a car with their vulnerable child would feel to know that is how he treated a young woman. I had many lessons scheduled in advance but had to cancel which is a bummer because I was really looking forward to a local, private instructor. I would never recommend anyone to NW Drivers Ed.
**EDIT** 3/34/2016 (3 mo. post review) - I saw the response (below) to my review for the first time today, and I am alarmed at what I read. I originally wrote my first review many months ago, but was surprised and frustrated to find later that it was deleted – so about three months ago I wrote the same review again. In addition, I never saw the response that was allegedly left on that original review before it got deleted. Mysterious. Then, I got the response below:
"Ms. Yoon, We have reviewed your comments from many months ago. While we invite you to delete your post, we must ask you to refrain from continuing to edit and otherwise post inaccurate comments about our company and instructor. Whenever we encounter an individual who is displeased we cannot accommodate a request for a female instructor for custom adult lessons they are informed that the local college offers female instructors and can arrange one-on-one lessons. When such individuals have insisted on choosing our company for their adult lessons because we offer pickup service, in the past we had provided the services. Learning from this experience we now reserve the right to deny solo lessons (i.e. require observers), to record lessons, and to deny services to persons whenever we are unable to accommodate their needs or preferences. More often, when an individual needs or prefers a female instructor and one is not available they choose another service. *****SUMMARY OF OUR PREVIOUS RESPONSE***** Thank you for your past support and constructive feedback. (1) We are sorry you were not satisfied with our services. (2) Instructors are background checked and cars equipped with cameras. (3) We no longer arrange in-person meetings to discuss participation in our collaboration projects. Enrollment in our translation projects is now done through our website."
I was disappointed that the owner never made an attempt to make amends for my dissatisfaction; he simply deleted my review and then claimed to have left a response to it months ago. I didn’t think that owners could delete negative reviews, but my review (and his response) was nowhere to be found –plus, I don’t have the option to leave more than one review.
I have never edited my review or posted inaccurate information about the instructor. I felt compelled to share my experiences to advise other perspective clients that are younger, and more vulnerable than I. I originally wasn't going to write a negative review, as I did not want to hurt someone else's business and livelihood. However, because Andrew never showed any remorse for how he behaved and didn’t appear to be unaware of his inappropriate, unprofessional behavior, I needed to make it known to others because of the potential for this happening to someone else. Had I known that was the experience that I was going to have, I would not have paid money for private tutoring with Andrew Decker.
I was never informed about one-on-one lessons offered by female instructors at the local college. This was never a topic of discussion, because there would be no reason to bring up the gender of the instructor when I never had a preference, as I never foresaw anything like this happening. It is infuriating that my review and experiences are made out to be fabricated and that I received information that I in fact, never received. This makes my experiences with NW Drivers Ed substantially worse than it already was. I definitely would never recommend any business with Andrew Decker based on these negative experiences and the revelation of his character as a business man and human being.
They are really helpful and professional. They have some techniques which make driving so simple and fun! I was know nothing about driving. They wouldn't be mad for my mistake but show patience and kindness. Thank to them I got my driver license in a month and I only driving with them about total 14hours!! 14hours!!! For a driving noob to get a driver license. If I had more free time it would be faster. Anyway I Can't to tell how much time I need to get my license without them.
Excellent, very professional, private driving lessons. The basic package was a great deal. The teacher was very courteous and effective.
Andrew is a great driver instructor. He is very professional. He taught me really well all the important driving skills that you must know. He will point out your mistake and explain it to you the reason that it is wrong. I did enjoy learning the driving skills with Andrew. You should go for him if you want to have a great chance to pass the driving test.
Very good, very professional, the best teacher ever! Thank you so much, Andrew! I will recommend you to friends and family!
