I have just finished digital marketing course and had Matt as a tutor. In a few months time I learned way more than at university. Matt is an amazing tutor, always ready to spend some extra time to explain you the topic once again if you did not understand it completely. I couldn't be happier that I found this course online. Thank you so much for everything!
