"The story section is fantastic! I had so many lightbulb moments where things I hadn’t grasped at uni suddenly made sense. Seb perfectly summarises the content so it’s really easy to understand, but without oversimplifying it."
Natalia Fricker
"Seb perfectly summarises the content so it’s really easy to understand, but without oversimplifying it. And he doesn’t just teach you, he shares his journey with you so it feels less overwhelming as you know he’s faced the same challenges too.”
Henry Donald
"Seb’s course has even more detail and information than my university degree did on the same subject and better yet, this course summarises information to be as understandable as possible without being over simplified."
Erin Wallace
