The lessonface platform is easy to use. Finding a teacher was easy. All I had to do was describe what I wanted and they contacted me.... much easier than trying to find a teacher locally (if I even could where I am located). Everything about the platform is easy...

Lessonface is the only good thing to come out of the internet. Except maybe cat videos.
