COVID-19 TUITION UPDATES
In line with government guidance, the following steps will ensure tuition runs as safely as possible during these challenging times to help prevent transmission of Covid-19.
Indoor Face-to-face Tuition
This is subject to all parties adhering strictly to the following conditions:
Unfortunately, without a commitment to the above conditions (besides my General T&Cs), secured weekly slots will be given to tutees on my waiting list who are able to adhere to all conditions.
Remote tuition is reserved only during school closures, total lockdowns and for families in quarantine.
A) File drop-off and phone call: This system requires you to drop off your file for marking. After marking, I will provide new homework and a ten-minute telephone call to test learning. This is by far the preferred method after face-to-face tuition for English tuition. You will need a WhatsApp account, a means of photographing work (a Smart phone, scanner or camera) and a telephone.
B) Video calls: Although video calls work well for maths, I discourage them for English if tutees are local because I have found them to be a far less efficient and effective mode of tuition than the above. For the infrequent need of video calls, you would need a computer with good internet connection, a webcam, a printer, a microphone and speakers/headphones.
Homework: Once you have collected, completed and returned your work to me (either left on my doorstep, via email or WhatsApp), I will mark it with detailed comments, providing new tasks for the upcoming week. Oral and written tests, and discussion of new concepts will take place mostly by telephone or if necessary by a video call.
Considering how rapidly the situation is changing, please keep checking this page for updates.
Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
