Reviews

August 2020

 

The whole course was presented in a professional and friendly manner, the explanations were clear and all the practical exercises were challenging, interesting and fun. I was impressed at how you had planned the materials and exercises and adapted to having a 10 year old join the course! It was great that she was able to participate fully and you managed to pitch all the exercises at the right level so it was all useful, challenging and enjoyable for all ages, something which I think is quite difficult to achieve. She loved every minute of it and came away full of enthusiasm and inspiration.
