Teaching my brain the balance between right and left brain writing was quite something, but the overall product was always great. Lorraine is a wonderful tutor. She is firm, helpful and clearly very knowledgeable. I love studying through the college; it’s always educational and pleasant.’ Noreen Arangies, Writing SEO Copy for Websites Course
