After a couple of failed attempts about 15 years ago, I finally decided to take up the challenge again at the tender age of 36. I chose Sevan on the strength of his testimonials and after reading about the LD system.
Sevan really is a great instructor, he is very encouraging, offers good constructive analysis and has the uncanny ability to remember every single manoeuvre taken on any given lesson. As well as Sevan's great tuition, I found the mock tests particularly useful.
I didn't have time for the fully intensive course so paced my block of 30 hours at about three hours per week. Thanks to Sevan's teaching methods this was easily enough to see me through and my first attempt ended with those magic words... "You've passed"!"
