Platform: Outschool or Education Revolution?


In order to maximize exposure to the classes, my goal is to host them via Outschool. However, while I am an approved instructor there, I don't know how long it takes for classes to be approved to allow enrollment. However, I hope that is where it will be!


Since the goal is to start these classes in Mid-June, if the process is hasn't been completed by the end of May, the first round of these classes will be hosted directly through Education Revolution. Not to fret, Education Revolution hosts multiple classes per week, and has the infrastructure. In fact, Outschool uses a premium Zoom account for its instructors--and so do we.


If you haven't taken classes from Outschool yet, please use my referral link! You'd get a $20 that you can use to take my class (or any other one)--so it's like a $20 coupon!




If you'd like to know when class sign-ups are available on Outschool, contact me via Facebook or via my contact form.
