"Brilliant tutors! Very approachable and friendly and with a genuine passion for teaching and imparting knowledge. Have attended courses in London (ALS) and some (not all) tutors think they're better than you. Over here all of them were so nice and approachable and yet completely fair and honest in their moulage assessments. Brilliant faculty. Dr. Nauman and Dr Charlotte deserve special mentions.
