Instructor / Paralegal Program / VCC / Testimonial

“I just checked my case law corner assignment and found out that I got 5/5. This was the assignment that I had a huge struggle with and the one that you had to call me to help with. I cannot express how grateful I am for your guidance at the time when I needed it. Just fyi, you are the only teacher that did anything in this manner since I started my paralegal program. Thank you very much for all your efforts. By far, this was one of the most challenging courses. However, at the same time, it was the most informative one and I am sure everyone could feel that you added your personal touch to it. It is rare to come across a great teacher and I would like you to know that I was lucky enough to have come across one (you). :)”
