What Our Students Are Saying

What Tonka Online students are saying

"The feedback and ongoing encouragement was very helpful, especially while trying to complete a course during a short, busy time period!"

"I was super nervous about taking a class like this online, as I have taken one other online course (not through tonka) where there was no teacher and there was zero motivation to keep up with work. This course was the opposite! I felt like I really had a teacher who was engaged in the process of learning, who would send supplemental items if interested, and would communicate about class topics in a way that totally worked for an online course. I learned a lot and had fun at the same time!"

"My teacher really tried to make a connection with us, I feel like if I had a question she was always quick to respond. She gave a lot of helpful feedback on assignments and tests - sometimes even more than you would get in a brick and mortar class."

"I loved how it was easy to know where the assignment was and how the course was very organized."
