12.  Do you use projectors?  Your tutor uses colour diagrams when she sits with you and gives you a hands on demonstration and guides you at your own pace through the process. Viewing colour diagrams is important for learning step-by-step.   (Some training companies need to use projectors because they have very large classes and this is a lazy way to show a large number of students at once, but we feel this is not the way to go and not the best most efficient way to learn).  We believe in giving students our time and dedication and giving as much one-2-one tuition as the student needs.  Patience and giving our time to students is most important to us.  Quick fixes and quick fire practices are not what we are about.  We want all our students to go away at the end of the day satisfied and happy.  We have been teaching with colour diagrams for 13 years, sitting patiently with students as they learn at their own pace, with 100% pass rate and very good feedback from our satisfied students.

13.  How many tutors?  Practical courses at CONNECT-2-HAIR have one or 2 tutors (on average), so you are guaranteed to get plenty of ONE-2-ONE tuition. Classes are small ONE TUTOR and ONE STUDENT .  (Private tuition is available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday (one tutor one student), at our Training Academy at no extra cost.
