  • said: Fantastic Tutor! Very small class which was great. Highly recommend this class, learnt so much more than I thought I would in a small amount of time. Clean, tidy and comfortable work space, very easy to find. Communication before course was great. My first course through Sydney Community College, will definitely be enrolling in other courses.
