Student Testimonials


SUPER GREAT CLASS! I loved it! The teacher, Laura, was wonderful. She was incredibly patient, thorough, clear, and I feel she covered all the basics of InDesign. Laura was attentive to where each student was in the exercise and didn't hesitate to come to each of us and guide us into the right spot. I usually hesitate to take group classes out of fear of getting lost as I follow what the teacher is showing us on the projector and taking notes or do the exercise on my own computer. However, this class was run at such a great pace, I was able to both keep up with what Laura showed us on the projector AND do the exercise myself on my computer. This is awesome for me. I really loved it. I also like the clarity of the screen. Laura was very prepared and the Handout is a great nice-to-have! Thank you Laura! You were so patient with my questions. Learned so much! LOVED THE CLASS!

The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and answered all our questions in detail. Thank you again, I would highly recommend the course to my friends.

Overall experience was great - it was really fun and I feel confident with the program now. Enjoyed the comfortable environment & small class size. Learned a lot.
