"I did the level 2 computerised bookkeeping course through your College and had a great tutor.
Bear in mind, when considering what I have to say, that I was an academic with the OU for 20 years, was involved in writing courses, and also tutored students.
I have done a lot of study in my time and I would like to say that studying with the College has been one my best educational experiences.
The course material was excellent, the assignments and practice exam extremely helpful and I had one of the best tutors I have come across. She is knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Her comments on my queries were timely and exceptional, and it was in no small part due to her support that I was able to pass my exam with 98%.
She not only does her tutoring job well, but clearly takes an interest in her students. She even offered (unbidden) invaluable help with my L2 manual exam which I did today (even though I had studied it with another college).
