Clear and consise powerpoint presentations which were all released at the beginning of the unit allowed greater flexibility in terms of 'getting ahead'. Response times for any queries were extremely fast and clear, with the offer of ongoing support also a massive plus. Any brief correspondence and it is easy to see that Stephen is passionate about what he does and really wants to impart knowledge and assist students.
