Lessons - FAQ & Teacher List


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the newly re-opened Lessons Department - offering one-on-one virtual lessons with our faculty of skilled and knowledgeable teachers. Help this section grow by signing up today!!

The lesson-plan/curriculum is to be determined and decided on a case-by-case basis between student and teacher. The appeal of this method is that it allows the most freedom for both parties to customize the appraoch and to tailor each series of lessons to the particular topic and to the people involved.

Please understand that at this point, teachers are generiously volunteering their time to help; try and be courteous and respectful of this generosity.

To sign up:

- Pick the subject you want to learn and with whom you'd like to study.

- Send a message to SYS65 indicating your subject and teacher preferences.

- Daniel (SYS65) and/or your new teacher will respond with a decision on your placement.
