Excellent instructor. It was great to have someone like Anthony sharing his knowledge with us.
Anthony Vaccaro was great and really seemed to care about my work during the feedback videos. He showed great interest and knowledge during the Q&A’s as well, and answered every questions asked during so, as well as answered every question posted via forum throughout each week.
I loved the overall feedback and this course, it was clear and honest. And gave me a different way of creating creating an environment. He could easily see where I need to improve my assets and explained it very well.
