    I am extremely grateful for this opportunity thath the academy tutors Vladimir London and Natalie Richie have provided. I am not in a situation to financially to be able to pay for this couse however being able to give back to the content providers in form of articles was both an achieveable goal and gave me the sense of deservedness.
    The academy tutors are very friendly and want the best for you; I was surprised at how early they got back to me , even on week-ends. Their determination for what they do is admirable and you can achieve a lot from this course if you are in the same mind-set. Without any doubt , the videos are the best you can find and totally worth your money; the quallity is amazing and the content is explained in a friendly manner yet straigh to the point.
    Thank you
