I just finished Early Childhood Education at Sprott Shaw College in West Pender downtown Vancouver. I have learned so much in my classes with Ms. Mylyn Nuguid. She paces the class just right so you feel challenged but not overwhelmed. In her classes Ms. Nuguid asks questions and gets the students to respond which is both fun and promotes faster learning. She provides both a great mix of listening, speaking and practical learning activities and a very safe, supportive learning environment. As a student, you feel pushed to learn and try out new competencies, feel safe and supported in doing so and gain valuable feedback that helps you to improve. It has been a great experience. She is a very thoughtful teacher who puts a lot of thought into how she presents the materials, her lessons were engaging, useful, and she was very patient with everyone in class always encouraging her students to try. I would highly recommend her. Ms. Nuguid, from the bottom of my heart, i would like to say I can’t thank you enough for all your hardwork for all of us to be a good in what we do, we did it! 😘😘😘

My instructor in this educational institution is exceptional. She goes way beyond in order to assist and accommodate us. She patiently teaches us the modules and she makes sure that she would review with us before and after every quizzes. The course may be challenging but because of the dedication and patience of my instructor-Mindy Thandi, I am more motivated to learn. Thank you Mindy! 🙂 The other staffs have been very approachable and kind. They have been a big help to us. I very much appreciate the assistance.

Campus is clean and easy to locate. Our instructor Mindy is an absolute gem. She is very professional, patient, knowledgeable, and it is really easy to follow the class' discussions when she teaches. She can get the class engaged even when we do it online. If only we can have her as a Lab Instructor too. We have learned so much from her and she always is available for any of our questions. Our class is really lucky to have her.
