I will try and put up Tuesdays lesson the Friday before. Most of these classes SHOULD be just one session (but you know how time can get away..) but if your student misses one of a two day, they can absolutely take the other, I’ll have extras to catch them up, or give them materials so they can finish at home.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
