Below are some of my policies and other Frequently Asked Questions -
On Outschool, each class has a different refund policy. Please make note of the specific Refund policy for that class (stated at the bottom of the pop-up window after you click "Enroll.")  If you realize you cannot attend a class that has not yet met, please contact me and I can try to transfer the learner to another section of the same class. Transfer requests within 48 hours of the start of class sometimes are not possible. If you realize you have missed a class that has already passed, a recording of the class will be made available upon request. 

In the case that a class does not meet the minimum enrollment, it may be cancelled and your enrollment fee returned to you. For one-time classes, I will make sure to reach out to you at least 24 hours in advance. For multi-day classes, I will make sure to communicate with you at least one week in advance if the class will be cancelled. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will be reviewing each Formal Paragraph (with a rubric) one time to try to help guide each learner to creating his or her best writing.
