K. Degel
The Vectorworks for Beginners class was fantastic! Such a knowledgeable, helpful and patient tutor. The class sizes are small so the tutor is able to give each student lots of attention and assistance. The classroom has lots of natural light. Love the Bethnal Green area too! I'm so glad I chose this course over others offered in the London area

Excellent training! First time learning Vectorworks. Could easily have been an awful, gruelling experience. I highly recommend Sam.
