About the classes
What happens at the lesson?
Lessons are held via our video chat in an individual-groupal or individual format. At the scheduled time the student calls the tutor via the personal account and shares the screen.

Individual-groupal format
Lessons are held as one-on-one video calls for the student. The tutor may guide several students simultaneously (up to six). The tutor is constantly seeing student's shared screen, guiding each student through the lesson and their learning progress, offering help and support wherever needed. The tutor is staying online and comes up as soon as needed.

The student focuses on the project without distractions and can work his own pace. The child doesn't need to adapt to anyone, goes on his own individual trajectory.

Individual format
Lessons are held as one-on-one video calls both for the student and for the tutor. The tutor devotes all the time of the lesson to the student. The child doesn't need to adapt to anyone, goes on his own individual trajectory.
Format Features
1. The class may start up to 10 minutes earlier or later than the scheduled time. Classes are not made shorter due to this, sometimes they may last even longer. If your tutor is asking to wait for a few minutes for the call, please, use this chance to set everything up, check your connection, open necessary applications, finish homework. Just do not worry, your tutor knows you are there and will call you in a moment.

2. Sometimes two students need help simultaneously. Then the tutor may get back to one of them a few minutes later. However, there is nothing to worry about, as within the time of waiting students may find the solutions themselves! Such minutes of contemplation are also an important part of learning. In any case, the tutor will dedicate sufficient time to help every student deal with any difficulties.

You can book certain days and time for regular lessons (e.g. every Tuesday and Friday at 7 PM) as well as schedule single lessons (e.g. during school holidays week - Monday and Tuesday at 10 AM, Thursday and Friday at 12 PM - noon). Our recommendation is to make a permanent schedule, whenever possible. Regular lessons are proven to be more efficient.

How to cancel or reschedule a lesson

In other cases, the missed lesson is paid, but you can sign up for the catch-up lesson. You can work out the missed lesson for free during a week. The time for the catch-ups should not cross with your regular schedule.

If you have missed the catch-up lesson, it "burns out."

  • There is only one possibility to reschedule an unattended individual format lesson per month. The rest of the missed lessons will be charged from the balance without the possibility to attend it on a different day.
  • For the individual-group format lessons there is no limit of catch-up lessons per month.

Our courses
Our school has many interesting courses. It is not necessary to study only one course all the time, you can switch between courses or take several at once. For example, a student can study Scratch, then take a few Photoshop and 3D modeling lessons, then return to Scratch again. A child learns productively if he does what interests him at the moment.

We teach coding on Scratch, Python, HTML + CSS and JS, Java, Unity in C #, Minecraft, as well as computer graphics in Photoshop, Illustrator, animation in After Effects, video editing in Premiere Pro, and 3D modeling.
You can read more about all our courses on this page

Please note that a lesson in a new course is not free if the student has already completed a free trial lesson in another course at our school. At the same time, lessons on your balance can be used for any course without time restrictions.
