Rates: We offer one hour, one and a half, and two-hour private lessons at $90/hr for in-person and $80/hr for online lessons. Private lessons can now be booked directly from our website.
Private lessons are offered in combinations of teaching game, reviews, tsumego (life and death problem) and tesuji (good moves for certain shapes) tutorial, and lecture. A teaching game and review are highly recommended for the first lesson to allow the instructor to get a sense of the student's current strengths and weaknesses. Afterward, a tentative study plan will be designed for the student.
Students will connect with the teacher via Skype or Google Hangouts voice chat and use the KGS or OGS. For the first lesson, the instructor will connect with the students 15 minutes before the lesson to set up and provide the student a chance to ask questions.
