Can I do a class in a small group? Yes, indeed! There can be groups of up to four people. The lesson price is reduced per student for groups larger than two people.
Frequency? Meetings can be once a week, more than once a week or twice a month.
May I try a class first before committing? The first class is available as a free demo class to see if it suits your fancy.
What textbook should I buy? Materials are selected based upon an assessment of your level and your needs conducted during the first official class. The typical used textbook costs around $25 to $50.
How big of a commitment must I make? Many students prefer to pay monthly; paying on a class-by-class basis is also fine. I encourage students to think in terms of three to four-month batches of classes. After every 16 classes, the student takes the assessment again in order to judge progress.
