I always hated school, because my teachers were always horrible to me, because of my dyslexia. Coming to the learn to sew class, I love learning again. Steph is a really good teacher. She helps and encourages me and made me believe in myself again and because of her I want to continue learning. I am happy that I had the opportunity to meet a teacher who is so passionate about teaching. I have learnt so much in the course of 9 weeks that I thought was impossible. Thanks Steph Please continue being a great teacher! JW
I am in my first year (of a 2 year course at Harrow college. I am super happy with all of my classes & all the staff members. There have been minimal issues, but they were all solved well & fast. I have had so much support & opportunity since starting 5 months ago. And I look forward to continuing my course & building up many more wonderful experiences.
The sign language tutor MONI is great. She is dynamic...on the go. Full of fun and very motivating. Never seen her down beat in any of her lessons.She is deaf but can communicate better than many hearing tutors. A great experience! The price of the course is pretty reasonable compared to other insitutions.
