“Very helpful and professional. I was made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable to ask any questions. I have found the online learning program to work very well so far. Weekly classes are helpful so that we have contact with our class and also Claire can provide not only the information but examples as well. A great arrangement that works well for all lifestyles. Having 3 young children this program is perfect for me. Really enjoying my course so far and very happy I made the decision to study with Hader.”
