Course testimonials:

  • The teacher has a great deal of patience and respect for people. This allowed for everyone to feel comfortable and able to absorb information.
  • Emma, the facilitator was an excellent communicator, giving one to one help, explaining everything and making the course very enjoyable. I look forward to the advanced class.
  • Learning some of basics that I never knew about has made me much more capable of overcoming minor, yet irritating frustrations using my ipad.
  • Emma was a wonderful teacher
  • Emma was patient and informative .. leaving nobody behind
  • I enjoyed seeing how easy it is to become aware of the way to use my ipad properly. Knowing the way to protect myself with some privacy issues too. The venue being very accessible was welcoming as was our presenter. I did not feel silly asking Emma questions that were unnecessary for other people.
  • Emma was a perfect Teacher, so clear and willing to help us all, I learnt lots. Looking forward to returning .
  • Easy to understand. Teacher was great. Easy to get to location.
  • This was an excellent course. There was a lot of new information but it was delivered in a readily accessible way. The trainer was patient and understanding of the frustrations that seniors experience with technology. I will be attending more of these courses and I recommend them to others who want to enjoy using their iPads.
  • I thought the teacher was excellent - explained everything clearly & in terms beginners could understand which is very important. I hope to do another course for my iphone. Thank you. Ann de Mestre
