Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Be ready for plenty of homework & also try to prepare in advance for the coming lessons.
Other comments: Great value & teaching. Small tip - teachers should check to ensure all class members have “got the point/understood”, not just the ones that answer quickly. They should also make available some “high volume” working exercises for each specific point, to allow students to thoroughly practice. Currently the number of worked examples is more aimed at demonstrating the issues & then a few tests, rather than multiple examples to ensure the points are fully trained.
Small class teaching, teachers and students can exchange more
