Classes are held regularly. Most classes are taught by me (Tracy), with the occasional help of other teachers. I like to keep class sizes small and offer them at a very reasonable price. Although my classes are ‘cheap’ they are professionally run. All classes are meticulously planned. Many of my classes have been run multiple times with slight tweaks each time to enhance student outcomes. I hold a Bachelor Of Education and have many years of experience in teaching to groups and individuals.
