Student Reviews
Janet Elaine Foster
“I got much better grades than I expected and really learned a lot about listening and not judging. I was very encouraged by my tutor’s comments and feedback. I felt he was very approachable. The notes were well set out and easy to digest . It was helpful to do self-test exercises throughout the course. This method of study has been ideal for my situation. I felt it has been time well spent and I have enjoyed learning. Thank you.”
