Course Feedback

Here is an example of what people say about our tutor...

Q: How well does he relate and respond to participants?
A: Excellent. Listened to questions and answered them very well. Very relaxed and pleasant manner, nice guy. Great attitude towards participants. He obviously knows his stuff.

Q: What suggestions can you offer for improvements?
A: Having studied at university for 5 years I was hugely impressed at Greame's teaching style. His intonation, change of place, placement and quantity of anecdotes were all perfect and led me to focus on what he was saying for the entire day. A huge achievement considering so many lecturers can lose me in 10 minutes.
