    My course was great. I appreciated the teacher's expertise and willingness to answer any question. The best thing was that the class size was limited to six, meaning everyone had a chance to speak up.

    Tony was a fantastic tutor, with an enormous amount of experience, which he shared patiently and creatively. I particularly liked being able to bring real life examples to work on together.
