I think they have great online classes. The teacher's are very helpful when you ask questions. The teacher's are very encouraging, they help you build up your confidence. There is one teacher that does not give us the correct answers to our tests unless we type type the question back to her, and the page we got the answer from. I would recommend this school to others.
