Hi I'm Mark and I'm excited to be your instructor!
During my career as a qualified accountant I have been told many times that I am good at explaining things. I believe this is because I enjoy breaking down big problems into small parts and teaching people from the ground up.
I know from experience that it is always best to teach the basics first. Once my students have a solid foundation to build on, I can move on to the harder lessons. I love watching my students go from complete novices to experts who can confidently use their new skills in real life.
I also know from experience that students learn better when they actively follow tutorials or complete practical tests at the end of each lesson, which is one of the reasons I love Udemy courses.
There is no better way to learn than by doing.
My courses have been designed along those principles to give you the best chance possible of becoming a subject expert.
I hope my courses help you learn what you need to know to reach your full potential.
