"The Masterclass has all the information in one place and all the people I've met there have become inspirations, friends, and helpmates. It's really been beyond my expectations. With the help of the Masterclass I've created an online class using the Academy's platform and now I have a whole new avenue of income."
Becky Campbell AVT Masterclass
"The Academy of Virtual Teaching Masterclass gave me the tools I needed to turn my blog into a business. By participating in the lessons and applying what I learned, I've been able to put systems in place that are the foundation of my online classes. From the pace of the lessons to the community of supportive people, all of the Masterclass resources are conveniently located in one place. Lyric has done a successful job of pulling together and organizing information, events, and experts to guide her students through the journey of building a business so they can share their love of quilting, sewing, and crafting with others in the online world."
"I appreciate the thoughtfulness in the amount and wide-range of content in the AVT Masterclass. It's very robust! Pretty much every area and topic for building a virtual teaching business are covered and there is concrete information on what you need and tutorials on how to get it done."

"I've learned that my fellow teachers are not my competitors and each one has a space of their own. And that when we lift each other, we all rise together."
