Great support from Kiernan, progressed at comfortable pace based on students ability. Practical rather than text-book approach.

(5.00 out of 5) Meredith F [ 28 September, 2017 ]
I got so much out of this course. Linda is an excellent teacher. She is patient and so knowledgeable. Linda teaches in a way that explains the concept of CSS elements before you try them, so that you understand the basis of the language.
(5.00 out of 5) Bernadette S [ 28 September, 2017 ]
Linda was a wonderful teacher- very clear and gave good examples. She also linked the course to available web resources which is really beneficial when you are just starting out and are not aware of what is out there.
