I have been on other courses where Tutors haven't really cared or listened and it seemed like they didn't want to be there. Suzanne go to know each one of us and how we worked. It was a Level 2 Maths course but she broke things down to work through each step and made rules to remember formulaes and mathematical terms like the mean and mode. I really enjoyed this and would like to so another course with you. Thanks

I enjoyed the functional skills course as it was a small group, I didn't feel frightened to speak out. Scott was very patient with me. My punctuation has improved and I am more confident with maths, which I want to carry on learning.

I really enjoyed the course, great group of people and brilliant tutor.I have always been nervous about learning new things, and didnt have much confidence in myself, but since doing the course i feel i have learnt a lot, and come a long way thanks to my tutor Andy Norwood.I sometimes found things difficult, but got there in the end as Andy was very encouraging, patient and understanding.I felt comfortable asking questions as Andy was easy to get along with and very down to earth.Doing the course has made me want to do more with my life, and gave me more confidence to achieve.Sad that its over because i really enjoyed it, and appreciate all the support Andy has given me all through the course.Thank you very much.

The first course I did was personal development for employability. I found this course very useful in preparing for going back to work with tips on interview techniques and help with my C.V. I would definitely recommend this course for anybody looking to get back into work and the tutor (Andy Norwood) was very professional but at the same time put my mind at ease and made me believe in myself.I also did Maths and English functional skills with the same tutor, I would recommend this course also as it refreshed my memory and also taught me new things due to teaching methods changing over the years and has given me more confidence to enable me to help with my children's homework.

At first I felt I was unable to face the course but my tutor helped me believe in myself and he was patient and encouraging throughout. I have refreshed a lot of my previous knowledge by doing the course and I am more confident that I was before I started.

I just want to say thanks for last 6 weeks or so, I was struggling and really down when I started and this course has given me new focus to start a College course in the new year and get more qualifications to achieve what I possibly can moving forward.I can't thank Andy enough he is totally focused on trying to help people and makes everything down to earth and do-able if that makes sense. I really do hope I can leave with a pass at Level 2 because that would be great for myself and future plans. Thanks again really enjoyed it all!

This was a very pleasant three weeks, covering topics I knew little about. I'm not sure if you could find a better Tutor she was very pleasant and professional. Quite a credit to the company as Suzanne genuinely cares and is thoroughly informed and confident with her subject matter and explaining in a way that you can understand and relate to, especially with anecdotes and work place examples.

On my first day I was really scared and when I walked in Suzanne put my nerves at ease because she was really smiley and bubbly. Because of Suzanne and the course I am a lot more confident in myself and I've taken a lot from Suzanne, as she believed in me. I found the course to be really fun and helpful, as I struggle with spelling I never felt daft like I have on some courses and I knew I could ask for help as I was involved and listened too.

When I came on Day one I really wasn't looking forward to this, but it's now the last day and I wish it was longer! I like how Suzanne did the course she actually made it fun and I learnt a lot as well, she used stories and phrases to help us remember information and made what could have been the boring bit come to life.
