Enrolled Students can gather on Zoom every Tuesday morning to ask questions and explore important course topics. Every week you will receive an email identifying the week’s lessons that you should explore during the weeks. In the Tuesday Zoom sessions we will explore questions that student have entered at the bottom of the lessons or new questions that are posed during the session.

The Sessions are casual and always informative.
