Course testimonials:

  • said: FIVE STARS

  • said: The tutor, Payal, was very passionate, knowledgeable and patient. She made sure everyone in the course got the most out of it. 4 weeks just wasn't enough time though.

  • said: Small group, which is best for this type of course due to the need for a lot of individual attention. Great tutor, very experienced in this subject, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course. As a full time employee working in the city I am pleased that you have these courses in the evening, and in the CBD. Only negative comment is the problems with the lifts.
