Course testimonials:

  • said: Marcus is an extremely helpful tutor. He makes sure everyone understands the content before moving on. Moreover, his explanations are clear and easy to understand. The only downside is that the course is only for 1 day, which is too short. I hope the course will be extended to 2 or even 3 days in the future, and will also extend the content besides teaching imovie on computers, it will also teach using imovie on your phone/ipad.

  • said: The tutor was good at listening and answering questions. He was clear and recapped the work we had done to ensure understanding.

  • said: Fantastic course! Well paced and a good mix of information and practice. I got what I needed out of it. Thanks Marcus :)

  • said: Writing on the white board should be clearer. Instructions on how to use iMovie should be more specific and easy. Overall a positive experience.

  • said: Small group, with very personal attention. Great tutor
