Student can establish the focus of each session with the instructor. For instance, they can choose to create or design a new character,  creating a story, the rendering style of one or a set of characters, etc. A goal will be given to the students for each lesson.  

Student should also expect to be given some homework which will help to reinforce what was learnt.  
All classes will be hosted via Google Hangout with the webcam on both the instructor side and the student side.  Using a webcam, the teacher can demonstrate live drawing as necessary, and student can also share their work with the instructor in real-time. (recommended).

To enrich the one-on-one experience, course material prepared by the instructor for all private lessons and the recording of all private lessons will be made available to all students. 

This is to be done so that students can maximize their learning experience. They can review the material they had covered with the instructor.  And they will also get to see what are the subject other fellow students are learning!

Students will be given the access to all course materials including all drawings done by the instructor during the lessons, and also the recording of all the private lessons. They can access them as well as videos. (Part of the drawing in low resolution will be posted on School website)

Students will be asked to scan and upload their work onto the Google Drive for the instructor. All scanning should be done at 300 dpi and save in JPEG format.  The student can choose to share their uploaded work only with the instructor, or make it available for other students to view.

All students will be invited to join a Private Google+ Community. The purpose of this private community is to enable students to have group discussion and for the sharing of ideas and questions.

  1. Officially, the GMAT measures skills in the fields of English, Mathematics, and analytical writing. Actually, the GMAT tests some basic English and math skills, but what it mostly tests is how well you use specific techniques and strategies for best performance on the GMAT.
