Other comments

Great tutors and advisors. They really played a big part in helping me. The fact that you could allow them to access your computer screen so they could see what you see. The only issues I had was with Algebra coming up with my own word expressions then solving them but they helped me until I got it down. I learned about ethics and cultural differences and to never judge a persons situation or choices.

There is bookwork but we would apply that bookwork into the workshop where we get very hands on with different units and what we can expect in the field.
