What if you miss a class:
We would want every one to attend all the classes, but missing one or two classes will not matter. In every class we will summarize and review the previous class material. Also, we encourage students to study the guide in advance and practice materials presented.
Also, for students who would like more help or unable to catch up due to missed classes, we may be able to arrange one-on-one session.
