The course content was very helpful & the way the instructor taught was easy to follow. I felt very comfortable asking her to repeat something if I didn't catch it the first time. It progressed at a nice rate - I didn't feel overwhelmed. The instructor's passion for the program is inspiring...the way she teaches makes you want to learn more & more.
