‘The course was very well structured and Denise was brilliant at explaining things in a clear and concise way. The course had a clear set of aims and the exercises perfectly achieved these learning goals. Denise was very approachable and knowledgeable. The sessions were informative, and the environment was positive and engaging. The breakout rooms especially helped as they allowed further discussion in small groups and allowed you to get to know other course participants better.’

‘Denise proofread the activities, transcripts and subsequent units on the CMS for an online business English course. She worked efficiently and accurately, asked pertinent questions, and got to grips with new systems with ease. I look forward to working with her again.’
