    Importance Of Functional Skills

    “What our customers say”

    Anna – Kent

    This was very informative, and I found it easier to attend it on Zoom as it saved travel time and hassle. The tutor and the rest of the group were amazing, thank you too all!

    An enjoyable course despite being on maths! Tutor was very aware of different learning needs / levels of each learner and adapts to them without compromising flow of teaching sessions.

    I like the fact that it was online, and the flexibility of the course.

    Great communication between the tutor and myself and with the office when booking exams. Fast and efficient.

    Sarah – Surrey

    Shelley is an amazing teacher! She makes everyone understand and explains everything in detail and covers all aspects of a situation. She involved everyone in the class to participate and treated everyone equally. I will miss this course and my lovely teacher Shelley.

    Max – Brighton

    The whole course was well put together. Initially, when I started the course, I was a bit overwhelmed, as I hadn’t studied since I’d been at school, but Tom made it easy to follow and understandable.

    Georgie – Kent

    Overall, excellent, had my reservations about attending course prior to starting. However, so pleased I did! The instructor, Orsi, was brilliant, informative, patient, and calm. It made the learning an enjoyable and worthwhile experience.

    David provided a concise and organised learning platform, highlighting the goals and outcomes each day. He was both patient and supportive in his teaching style, recognising barriers to maths and able to meet the needs of the group.

    The pre-reading and videos provided allowed the opportunity to reflect on what was being taught.

    It was an enjoyable experience back to maths for a mature learner!
