"We purposefully booked driving lessons with Henry because of the impression that he made at the parents class. He has a great approach in regard to his delivery of information to teenagers and with the way he also relates to them."
"Most people don't fully understand that being an instructor (at anything) isn't a single skill, but rather the combination of many. It's more than the mastery of what's being taught, it's also the ability to teach it. That means understanding your students, listening to them, explaining and teaching in a way that fits them, and having an attitude and approach that balances comfort and progress. I've had plenty of good instructors who checked a few of the "boxes" I listed off, and I've had instruction in everything from motorcycling to scuba diving, but Henry is one of the very rare few who truly deserve the title of GREAT instructor. He does it all. I felt more comfortable AND learned faster under him than any other driving instructor, and the cherry on top is that all the hours of driving lessons were enjoyable. Henry isn't just a great driving instructor - he's a great guy, and I'd recommend him to absolutely anyone who wants a driver's license."
"Henry is exactly what parents and students want in a driving teacher. He was very helpful and encouraging throughout the whole lesson. He is positive and supportive and he gave good advice and guidance without being intimidating."
"As a family, we would like to highly recommend "The Driving Whisperer" for your learning teen driver. We have two teens who have recently completed the classroom instruction with Mr. Binghi. They have learned a great deal from an instructor who is both knowledgeable, as well as very enthusiastic about educating individuals in the arena of this extremely critical life skill. We have more confidence in allowing our teens to embark on this new phase of life after having completed the course work, as well as road time with Mr. Binghi. Indeed, our teens have had a very positive time of instruction on the road. What could potentially be a very tense situation, was, instead, quite relaxed with Mr. Binghi, who understands the needs of the learning driver, in that he is quick to provide valuable support and encouragement. Overall, our teens have had a very positive experience with Mr. Binghi and now have more confidence as they embark in this new journey. As parents, we can have more confidence as well. We look forward to having Mr. Binghi instruct our other children in the future. Thank you, Mr. Binghi for your patience and careful instruction in working with our teens, as well as for supporting and encouraging us in this extremely important phase of parenting."
"Mr. Henry Binghi is an awesome teacher and a very nice man."
"Henry Binghi was a pleasure to work with. He was flexible with my daughter's schedule which was huge. His calm and encouraging approach to teaching was instrumental in helping my daughter feel more confident. She was well prepped for her drivers test, and passed the first time. I also appreciated the way he kept me informed of how her lessons went. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a competent driving instructor who truly wants to be sure the students are safe on the road for themselves and other drivers around them"
"Mr. Binghi is an excellent instructor who will help you every step of the way. He is very patient and very helpful. I enjoy driving with him because if you mess up, he's there for you. He is an excellent coach and a really good instructor."
"He’s a great instructor. The best from the 3 instructors I have had."
"Henry is a great instructor. All of our lessons have been on time and very professional. He taught me a lot in the time we drove together. I felt very comfortable when taking my test."
"Great teacher! He was incredibly patient and very informative with every driving skill I had learned. He did not take over control of the brakes and was very calm, cool and collected. I would have never realized the tricks to parking without the knowledge that Henry has. He helped as needed and always let me try it out first and taught me how to correct myself."
"Henry is a fantastic teacher!! Almost wish we had to take more than four lessons!"
"Our daughter was very anxious and failed her driving test ( after driving lessons with another local driving school) The driving school she had attended could not help us to get her prepared for her second test so we made one call to Henry and he was RIGHT there to help. (As her mother, apparently, I was "the worst back seat driver" and was not allowed to instruct ...basically she fired me.) Henry immediately scheduled multiple lessons to help her conquer her fears. She was very comfortable with Henry and with each passing lesson became more confident and assured. By the last lesson she was ready for her test and passed. Thanks Henry , we are forever grateful for your care, concern and expertise. We highly recommend The Driving Whisperer !"
"Very helpful and gave constructive feedback.He made me feel very comfortable while driving. I wouldn't want to drive with any other instructor."
"Henry is the best instructor! He makes classes fun and not boring! Thanks for all your help Henry."
"My son, Justin, thoroughly enjoyed his driving experience with Henry. Justin felt extremely comfortable driving with him. He was patient and took the time to explain everything. My son wants to finish his behind the wheel sessions with (and only with) Henry!!!"
"Congratulations Henry...the official Driving Whisperer of the Farmington Valley!!! WOW...families and students are SO fortunate to have you around to teach this most important rite of passage. They could not learn from a more professional, caring and intuitive teacher. You taught our daughter to drive with humor, compassion and "respect" for the road and for others. You are honest, caring and make the kids really feel at ease learning in the classroom and behind the wheel. Most of all, you have such patience and a world of perspective to teach. You make the driving experience personal and well thought out...with an open invitation to learn skills at their pace and re-learn when necessary. You made a defensive and safe driver of our daughter and partnered with us so we could enforce your teaching. Thanks again, Henry!"
"Henry, you are the driving whisperer."
