"My time at the Auto Super Shoppes academy was very good. The tutor was an amazing teacher. I’ve learnt a lot from him, his teaching skills are spot on. He explains things very clearly. He doesn’t only teach automotive; he teaches life in general on how to be a better person and have that persona of being a real man and I will carry on the knowledge and personality he has in the industry and keep striving to be as good as him. A lot of laughs and joy in the workshop and class while learning and being productive. I went to the academy knowing nothing at all about cars, only played car video games, but I feel like I’ve come a long way for only 12 weeks"
