Hi Anonymous,

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. Student feedback like yours helps us learn how we can best improve our program. 

While our program has an intensive vetting process for instructors and requires a minimum of five years’ experience in the field, we continue to monitor instructors to ensure that students are getting the best learning experience possible. We hire active practitioners in lieu of formal professors to best simulate real-life working environments. Still, we understand that not all instructors will meet the expectations of all students.

Please allow us the opportunity to provide any and all support we can at this time to make sure that you are equipped for success. Contact me directly at (312) 416-9979 so that I can better understand and further address your concerns.
