Course plan and timing:

This course will start on Request (at least 3 students) and There will be 12 session for this course (depending on different factors such as the number of the participants, if we have more than 6 people in the class we will need more time on correction so we will need a complete session to cover that).

Each session would be about 90 minutes long, so the course is a 15 -hour teaching course but you will be in touch with the instructor throughout the course by our WhatsApp number.

Due to time differences, we will need to adjust a time that is suitable for everyone in the course, our first option is 14:00 Tehran time on Sundays, but this time might change upon participant’s request (we do understand your conditions in different parts of the world so we will try our best to adjust everything as smoothly as possible).
