Here is some feedback from others on this course's trainer:

"Thayenga has been most generous in answering all the questions thoroughly, patiently and in a positive attitude, absolutely clear in her explanation, patient and perfectly understandable. She gave us valuable contents and a sound teaching"
Antonella Fontana




"I appreciated Thayenga's insightful advice very much. I feel far more confident now to be assertive when it comes to clients who request a proofread on text that obviously needs revision, and I now know the pros of quoting hourly. My new mantra: An hour of my time is an hour of my time!"
Iana Zagorui
