I was getting the same error, so here is how I solve it and hopefully your case is the same as mine.

1- I'm not using workspaces, I'm using Visual Studio Code on a Mac running OS 10.15.1 2- After some research it appears that means my node version could be an old one, which you can check from your terminal running node -v... so I have to update several programs:

-I update npm (current version 6.13.1) and installed n as recommended here: https://bytearcher.com/articles/ways-to-get-the-latest-node.js-version-on-a-mac/

-with n installed I upgraded node from v10 to v.13.3.0 (which is the latest as of Dec 8, 2019)

After that I was able to see the same things as the teacher. Hope this helps
