Our max student-teacher ratio is 3:1, and we are frequently working closer to 2:1.
We use a unique method of instruction that alternates between teaching periods and practice periods. Each student will spend 1:1 time with an instructor before doing practice in a small pod of three students. During the practice period, the is an additional instructor to help students as questions or difficulties arise.
These periods are very short (about five minutes), and our curriculum is designed around this method. It is very effective because of the individualized instruction and the immediate availability of assistance during practice.
