The instructor was patient and nice. However, we didn't even cover 70% of the content, and the instructor basically was just reading her slides. She also failed to cut out some of our classmate's irrelevant chitchat in class. I did not pay to listen to them talking about their life problems. I don't think it's worth $300 and definitely want my money back.
