It’s good because you can go at your own pace. You can go slower or go faster if you want to. And your friends aren’t with you, so you can’t talk. It’s simple, straight to the point and non-complicated.

I prefer online because I can learn more and I can go faster. But not for all classes. It can be hard at times and I’m like, “Help me!” Sometimes you need a real teacher.

I figure-skate and spend three hours training on the ice every day — and three hours training off the ice — so it’s just too hard to go to school every day. Last year I came in eighth in the U.S. Sections. Most of the time it’s pretty self-explanatory, and if I have questions, the teachers are really good about e-mails.

I can work anywhere or anytime, but the best part is that I can take mornings off and work at night. I am not a morning person, and it was hard for me when I had to wake up early and learn. Now, I start about 2 o’clock.
