How does it work

The lessons are conducted over Zoom using the in built screen share and additional audio sharing feature so you can hear and see everything from my computer from the comfort of your own home wherever you are in the world. Each week there is a two hour class of which you shall follow progressively through the syllabus. Each week an assignment is given and in the following class I will open the assignment project to run through how you did and how to improve on your efforts.

Outside lesson time you will be able to keep in touch with me at all times to help you with your progress. I can answer any questions and help you with any problems you may be faced with during your course.

A feature of this course is analysis of your projects in class. Proven a highly effective and progressive activity for the benefit of my students. This allows me to show you where your going wrong, where your going right, how to put solutions to the problems found and also examples of how to improve.
