Private Class Option

Perhaps the classes don't fit your schedule. Or maybe you want to learn something specific. Private classes are an excellent option. The advantage of this option is intensive or partial days and flexible hours. We can even help to suggest a project if you only have some ideas in your mind. With more one-on-one time with the instructor, work is done faster, and you can cover more topics in more detail. Our team has extensive experience teaching students at various skill levels.

🌈🌈 You can WhatsApp +852 9083-8693 or email to obtain a quote for a private class or schedule a lesson.
