Our lessons are non-refundable. However, if you wish to switch teachers or take a break, we are happy to help.

If you need to reschedule your classes, we highly recommend to do so at least 24 hours before the next class. We understand that sometimes life throws a curveball at us, however multiple rescheduling without valid reasons might be deemed as no-show, with lesson(s) deducted.

For priavte lessons, one lesson is 50 minutes, so that our teachers can have a small break before their next lesson. If you would like to have longer lessons, please let us know. Our teachers may be able to accommodate that depending on their schedule.

You can reach out to us via different ways on our Contact Page. Our course advisors will be happy to discuss with you to figure out the best course of study for you.
