We individualize all lessons/classes, tailored to student strengths, interests, and opportunities. We offer an interactive, hands-on approach to learning that challenges students while having fun. We believe that everyone has the right & the ability to learn and grow, and that everyone should have equal opportunity!
Students with special needs have just as much of a right to learn and grow as anyone else. They DO have the ability to learn! We go at their individual pace during lessons/classes, using techniques that help each student learn best. Tools in our Studio Portal and Teams platform help achieve this for each student.
Please reach out to us if you cannot find an answer to your question.

Work is assigned in the studio portal with audio/video for the student to listen to or watch. Directions are included if needed, and the private chat in both the studio portal and Teams allows you to send us questions in between lessons/classes.
That's great! We individualize all lessons, because everyone is different. Every student has different strengths, challenges, and abilities. We'll work with you to find what works best for you and celebrate each success with you! We truly go at whatever pace works well for you.
