A few words from our learners

“Dear Teacher: I want to thank you so very, very much. I had a great experience in class. Your teaching style opened my mind. I respond to real life stories. You included your experiences just enough to help me. I woke up every morning relaxed and could not wait to get to the classroom. Your style of explaining everything was counted on by me. I was more relaxed in your classroom than ever before. I knew I’d “get it”. And, yes, things did go “fast” as you explained at the beginning. However, you never hesitated to go over anything if one of us needed you to. As a result of your teaching method, I did far more than I had anticipated going into the course. As a result, I am confident that I am going to succeed in my plans. I am going to get up every morning and go to the library and practice everything I learned. Thank you.”

“Although the course is free, it provides valuable learning covering the basics to get you started with a good foundation to enable you to pursue more advanced learning… I have wanted to be able to communicate through Social Media but felt intimidated to proceed on my own and therefore had no confidence… but following this course has shown me the opportunities that exist and how to function properly and confidently.”
– Andrew Sarrasin

“You will learn something and the course is free. The training is very good and instruction is easy to understand and very clear. Nice to have an agency that caters to literacy.”
-Rachel Sarrasin

“It motivated me to create a Facebook and You Tube profile which are essential marketing tools in today’s increasingly digital/plugged in world. I learned a very simple, professional-looking and immediate way to create promotional videos to promote myself.”
