Donations Encouraged

What has worked well since March 2020 is to keep things as simple as possible. There is no advance registration. Payment is by donation through PayPal, Venmo, or mailed check.

Suggested donation is $10 per class or $20 per week for unlimited classes.

Please DO NOT donate an amount that is stressful for you. If you are facing financial challenges as a result of covid-19 closures, donate an amount that is comfortable for you or just come without paying anything.


Last year, I got fancy and official and registered the business name, James Learning Systems LLC.

Online Classes

“Doors will open” 15 minutes before each scheduled start time. This means you can log in early enough to deal with technological fumbles (highly recommended if you are new to Zoom). If you do have troubles, there’s not much I can do for you. You’ll need to sort out speakers, camera, and microphone on your end. There is a dial-in option for phones. I think this will allow you to speak and listen, but not see or be seen.

Classes start on time. I recommend you log in a few minutes in advance so that you are settled when we begin.

You are encouraged to come early for a little  conversation. Chitchat before class is a surprisingly satisfying help for the isolation of quarantine.

You are also encouraged to drop by during the 15 minutes before any class (whether you stay for the class or not) for a little conversation. If you are working alone from home, you can consider a few minutes of this as a conversation in the break room to cheer you on in your work day. Contribute to the conversation, then stay or sign out if you have a project to finish.
