At the end of each lesson, students will receive a practice assignment for the coming week based on what was covered in the lesson.
Following the first lesson, recommendations will be made for books and other supplies, which can be purchased online. Typically, my students spend about $30 on materials each year of study.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
