Definitely helped improve the speed at which I type! Friendly, welcoming environment from both staff and other learners.
This course has really helped me start to use a computer and it was free too. I now don't feel embarrassed about not knowing anything about computers. The tutor was really friendly and didn't make me feel stupid for any of the questions I asked which was important to helping me learn.
This course would be more accurately described a sewing group for intermediate/ advanced students rather than a tutored class for beginners as there is minimal tuition & individuals work on their own projects asking for assistance as required. In its current format, this course doe not meet the objectives described in the advertised course outline. Embroidery is not adequately covered: the onus is on individual students to ask specific questions but as a beginner, more proactive guidance/instruction is needed by the tutor in this area.
