Individualized, private lessons

• For personal and spiritual growth

Tutorials are done via a combination of individual meetings, either in person or via telephone, along with listening to class recordings.

Personalized lessons can also be scheduled for an hourly rate of $50.

Tutorial students receive a comprehensive working knowledge of astrological symbols, a strong foundation in understanding and using one's own chart, and training in using astrology responsibly and effectively to help others. Courses are taught with a psychological and spiritual approach. Class recordings are a combination of lecture/discussion, with students' charts utilized as examples.
