I'm in the Barber program here at Bates Technical College Downtown Tacoma in Washington State and everyone knows it is by far the best Barber program there is to offer I mean you absolutely learn everything here and the Instructor is awesome he really does love his students and would do anything in the world for them no doubt. This school is really awesome not only because it's kind of cheap pay but I mean the teachers really do care about your education.
Review Bates Technical College
The teacher in my program gives way to much work and does not really explain things when first coming you have to ask your class mates.Sometimes even pop up assignments in class.I think that some of the things should be changed so that the students can attain more knowledge and be more successful.
I prefer learning in a traditional classroom but incorporating online assignments is okay. We can email our professors when we need anything.
