Students are missing the feedback from a mentor and the encouragement from their peers that helps accelerate their learning to the next level. We believe that learning through live, with your familiar or unfamiliar expert instructors is the most preferred and effective way to gain new skills.

Meanwhile, freelance teachers only pay monthly when they earn, while schools enjoy a low termly fee starting from 2,000 per student while teaching staffs and management staffs of client schools are not charged.
