The instructors are very knowledgeable and understanding. My life is crazy. I have 2 kids and limited sitters so it really works around my schedule and accommodates me. Although I do miss a day here or there, they make it very easy for me to get back on track and keep learning. So far I have met many new friends and mentors. Thank you Raphael’s for this great opportunity!!! You really do change lives!!!
