Student and Tutor Testimonials

Caroline Legoe-Man is an experienced tutor, with an academic background in both media studies and social sciences. One of her students is Kylie Watkins, a Bachelor of Media Arts student. From the beginning Kylie was apprehensive about the course and her abilities.

“Having Caroline to help, especially with understanding the technical aspects, has made a huge difference to my studies.”

For Caroline: “It has been really fulfilling for me to see how students have embraced the ATP and have made huge advances in all aspects of their study – in both character traits that make a good student, and their study outcomes.”
