"I had an amazing time on your course. You gave me a really clear and concise understanding of the duties of a dept head, which has boosted my confidence in this role dramatically.

You are an amazing teacher and explained everything so thoroughly.

I also loved the format of your course for each new topic; 1. Explanation 2. Home work 3. Presentation.

This really is the best way to learn and I got as much out of your course as was humanly possible!

Thank you so much again, what I learned from you is invaluable."
