Why choose an online class?

You may ask what the difference is between such types of classes and your regular Youtube videos. Well, in short, classes like these follow a specific structure, meaning the progression of skills flows. So, you won’t find yourself learning about French knots without knowing what your basic stitches are.

As for the difference between online classes and regular classes? Pausing, rewinding, fast forwarding, skipping… Online classes are exactly like one-on-one classes. You are in control of the speed of learning. You get to choose when to move on to the next lesson without being slowed down or hurried by your classmates.

I love online classes to the point that I even opted for distance learning when I was doing my Master’s degree!
