"Really interesting and engaging course. It was a really good course, the tutor had lots of relevant experience and drew on a lot of examples to explain her points. she was also friendly and funny, making it easy to engage with her and it felt comfortable to ask questions. I also liked that the course only had a few people on it, it felt like you had more direct time with the tutor."
