FAQ: What is Skype?

    Skype is a real time, video web conference application which enables you to communicate with anyone and anywhere for free, as if you were actually face to face in the same room.

What are the benefits of using Skype vs. meeting in person?

    You can save money and time spent in traveling to the physical location. Weather will not effect the ability to have the lesson and you can have the lesson from any location you have a computer. Skype also offers the ability to record unlimited lessons for $29.95 with “Supertintin Video Call Recorder”, making previous lessons available anytime.

Lessons in person with Kelly are available at limited times, please contact him to schedule a date or submit an appointment through the Booking Calender below.
