First Come First Serve
After first 10 students registered, rest of the students will be put on waiting list so classes can be kept at a manageable number. Following interview questions will be asked of those who register so it can be assessed if each of them are able to commit to 11 weeks, do their homework and understand their goals for these classes. If assessment doesn't come well, a student might be moved down and have them wait till next term (Sept 2014) so that time can be used properly for all of us.
