Highlights:

- Individual attention

- Live lectures and follow up assignments with deadlines.

- Very articulate instructors and very helpful TAs

- Professional-job-training that would make the students earn at least 700USD a month right from their home

Overall: They invest in our success. So we get the accountability we need to finish the course and we also get all the help and guidance we need to start earning. I strongly recommend!

Thanks to McLaren College for providing us this opportunity!
