Virtual Classes: 

Our virtual classes are LIVE classes with one of our experienced educators. These classes  give you access to our full virtual event space where we have various resources and videos available for your review at any time. You can launch your Google Meet "classroom" at your scheduled time to engage in an personable, interactive lesson and have your specific questions answered in real time. These classes are essentially our usual in-person classes adapted to the virtual setting. We also have a list of suggested items for you to bring, so we can mimic that "hands-on" experience the best we can.
