Let me answer some of your questions right now.
why online tutoring?
Online tutoring is just like regular tutoring.
The only difference is that we communicate via a screen.
The benefits of online tutoring are many:
we work from the comfort of your own space
we can work together from anywhere in the world
transport and travel are no longer an issue
fits in with your busy schedule
We can work on reading, comprehension, writing, spelling, grammar, speaking.
Your needs are my focus.
I work from home but I am prepared to meet-up if you are in Canberra city centre.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET STARTED?
If you have a quiet home, office or dorm study area, you are ready to start.
The basic set up looks like this:
a screen + a keyboard – ideally a PC or laptop – and access to internet
a quiet, distraction free nook – a study corner, homework desk in a bedroom
a Skype or Facebook Messenger account – both are free and easy to set up
pencil/pens + paper
a glass of water
box of tissues
we’ll swap email and Skype names
You will need to book online or call/SMS me to book your preferred time.
I am willing to be flexible with booking times, on request.
On booking, I will email you ‘Welcome’ information.
HOW DOES ONLINE TUTORING WORK?
Now that you have booked your preferred tutoring time-slot with me, we will connect to chat about your needs.
At our arranged time, you will be at the screen and ready – I will call you.
If you cannot make your call and fail to notify me, payment will still be due.
We will establish your needs and goals and get started right away.
Sessions will be supportive, non-judgmental, and practical.
I am very patient and understanding - don't be shy.
I want you to be successful and will adapt to suit your needs.
You will be encouraged to lead - practice, practice, practice.
Do not be afraid to ask - for clarification, for repetition, for anything you need.
HOW do we pay for online tutoring?
Payment can be made via Direct Debit.
It is preferred that payment be made ahead or on the day of your session.
I accept weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments.
Please allow at least 3 working days for new direct debiting to take effect.
We will organise payment details once you are booked.
is online tutoring safe?
Online Tutoring is completely safe.
My online sessions are as private and confidential as other in-person or commercial tutoring.
I am familiar with all current Teacher's Codes of Professional Conduct.
I have all necessary Police Checks and a current Working With Vulnerable Persons card.
All we need to do now is get started. Hit the BOOK NOW button.
I’m looking forward to working together.
