– Alice, 21, Bruxelles –

“I always thought that being a part-time tutor while studying at college was a great opportunity for my CV and work experience. At the beginning, I didn’t know how to organise my class and I was feeling a bit stressed so a friend of mine encouraged me to take this course. The topics were really helpful, it broke all the steps of tutoring down into simple sections and now I’m feeling way more confident with my private students.”


– Cate, 30, Cork –

“This course covered all the areas that I needed. I enjoyed the fact it was online but still very informative. It didn’t take me that long to finish and get my cert.”
