We open from Tuesday to Saturday and hours of when teachers are at school are from 12pm to 9pm or 10pm, Saturday we start from 9am till 6pm. Depending on schedule and other factors, there are times when teachers may be asked to teach morning lessons, this is shared and taken turns with other team members.

On a typical day there could be 3-7 lessons and lunch/dinner breaks will be taken, because we all need to eat and drink and relax.
