Small Class Sizes

Ivy Global classes have a student-to-teacher ratio no larger than 10 students, thus ensuring every student benefits from attention and interaction with the instructor. In this low student-to-instructor ratio setting, our teachers routinely engage with students to provide tailored lessons suitable for each individual’s abilities and needs. Space for classes is reserved on first-come, first-serve basis.
