We insist on providing students with the smallest class sizes in Melbourne. Additionally, TSSM is committed to offering as many additional classes as required and we will extend class times when students require it. Also, students will have the opportunity to attend repeat classes as required, which is helpful when students need more instruction on a particular concept or topic.
