Feedback For Gihan (2)
A great Tutor and Teacher!! Dr. Gihan is a genuine teacher and has a lot of knowledge within the architecture field and more. I honestly cant thank her enough for all the help that she has give me, as with her support I was able to achieve my BA Part 1 Architecture, something which I didnt think was possible. Gihan helped take my project to a another level and taught me everything I know about architecture and softwares so far. She has given me the confidence to continue on to my Masters in Architecture and has given me all the right guidance and tools to pursue my career in the field. I would definitely recommend Gihan as a tutor, as she honestly is the best!!
Great Tutor, with lots of experience, friendly and professional.
I highly recommend.
