I started training with LDC to become an approved driving instructor by training for the part 3 test. Ella was allocated to work with me due to being the closest LDC instructor to me. I had initially passed part 2 with a different instructor, but what a difference it made training with Ella, I ended up passing part 3 first time. It was a completely different learning experience for several reasons. Firstly, Ella is obviously passionate about what she does and nothing is too much trouble for her, and you can tell she really wants you to succeed. She will answer all calls, texts and emails promptly, even out of usual working hours, and would often juggle around students and timetables in order to find solutions for all her students. Her teaching style is very student centred, and although she does encourage you to progress, she never did make me feel that I was going beyond my capabilities, and it was a great learning experience, very comfortable and manageable. Ella is very knowledgeable in her field, and is happy to pass this on and share her experiences. All of this combined with her personality made the whole thing manageable. Initially, I was somewhat phased by what I had taken on as I thought Ella would teach/instruct me what I needed to know and do, but the more we worked together I could see how I took charge of my own learning, with Ella as a facilitator, and a very good problem solver if I was having a bit of a struggle, and she is quick to identify problems and work out a solution. Very happy with Ella and would highly recommend her to others for the reasons above. Thank you very, very much.
