“Perfectly paced and pitched, it was clear that the tutor knew his stuff and was giving us tips and tools along the way, not just teaching us what HTML is, but how to best apply it. Also the tutor was very responsive to questions and answered them thoroughly, so it felt like the course was tailored to individual needs, rather than “scripted”.”
