Class Size

Our ratio of students to instructors is generally 4 to 1. At times when our classes may be full we may bring in assistant instructors to aid in supervising and guiding our students. We have found that utilizing all of the instructing outlets is very valuable, as they give students a different perspective or teaching style that may enhance their learning experience. The instruction is extremely personalized and we keep track of each student’s progress, detail of completed work and attendance on a daily basis.
