Hello Codeforces.

As you know from one of my previous videos from my YouTube channel , I am offering individual tutoring classes to students interested in getting better at competitive programming while also offering an innovative and customized tutoring program, adapted to their always changing needs in terms of improving their competitive programming performance.

However, there are so many more people who were interested in joining those classes but because of various reasons, they couldn't have classes with me and this is something I want to address with this blog post.

Lately I have been thinking at organizing group classes where I can teach various topics and guiding the group towards getting better, based on their common need, thus adapting two of my main principles when it comes to tutoring. I am looking to have a few group classes during each week.

Some of the ideas I have been thinking at were either creating classes on one demanded topic (for example, a Dynamic Programming series of classes) or creating a series of classes oriented towards people with similar skill levels, which would help them become better at the algorithms and the data structures they need in order to be able to make the push towards the next level in their competitive programming journey.

Another benefit of the group class would be that it will be more affordable than having a one-to-one tutoring program, but this also comes with the price of not being able to get fully customized help as a student.

If you are interested in joining those group classes or if you have anything else to suggest regarding the way I should conduct these classes, you can add a comment to this post, write a private message here on Codeforces or on Discord (username: stefdasca#0001). Based on the popularity of this blog post and on the amount of interest I get, I will keep working on these group classes and I will provide more detail with the way they will be conducted.

Thank you for your continued interest in my work both as an Youtuber (thank you for helping me get 4000 subscribers there) and as a tutor and I am looking forward to getting as much feedback as possible and future students for the group classes too.

            I am looking for 2-3 group classes per week, I already have individual tutoring sessions and I want to diversify the services I offer to the community.

5-10$ too cheap , you should charge more with your current rating you should be paid a lot higher.

Will you return the money back if I don't improve or if I don't find the classes as "high quality" as I expect?

    I think the initial rating should be at most 1900

I am one of Stef's former students and I thought his classes were very good for beginners. I recommend you give him a shot!
