American Cursive Handwriting or Getty-Dubay Italic $15 per hour
Minimum 4 students, maximum 10 students in my studio or within Blanco County (locations outside Blanco County require a mileage fee, rented rooms may require an additional fee). These classes are for any students (public, private, or homeschool) or adults that would either like to begin to learn to write legibly or to improve their handwriting. I use Michael Sull’s American Cursive Handwriting book for older students (3rd grade to adult) or Getty-Dubay Italic for Kindergarten and older. Both courses include my own supplements as needed for the students. I recommend starting out with at least 8 sessions and no more than 1 session per week. The complete courses take approximately 6 months to complete and a certificate of completion at course end made by myself is presented. Ages 5 to adult. Materials not included.
