Fall semester classes
As before, classes will be Tuesday and Thursday from 9 to noon. Unfortunately, all
classes are full right now. Sometimes, students drop out and make a space avaliable for late registrants. If you
wish, you may register on line at any time only for my class for advanced and moderately advanced students . Go to the "Registration" page

I receive the registrations.
