Heart to Heart Teaching
In addition to having the convenience of having class at your leisure on your smart devices, students will have the opportunity to see the teacher live and in person every week. Although technology has facilitated and enhanced the learning experience in many ways, nothing can beat the tradition of learning while sitting directly in front of a teacher.
