“What we learned in two days was more informative and clear than what I saw in a full semester elsewhere. The teachers were welcoming, presented clearly and engagingly. They answered all questions in an easily understood manner and didn’t miss a beat in their presentations. This course was exactly what I was looking for.”

“I really, really enjoyed it! It was so interesting and the course leaders were so knowledgeable and made every effort to ensure the content and activities were applicable to each participant.”
