Indoor Face-to-face Tuition Resumes March 8th 2021

This is subject to all parties adhering strictly to the following conditions:

  • Lessons should be rescheduled by all parties at the first sign of any ill-health, regardless of how minor and whether or not Covid-19 is suspected;
  • Before arrival, tutees are requested to 1) use their own toilets; 2) arrive wearing a face covering; 3) refrain from bringing food or drinks;
  • You will be asked to sign a brief Covid-19 health check questionnaire prior to the first lesson, and refer to this before all subsequent lessons;
  • Tutees to be dropped off and collected at my doorstep;
  • On arrival, your temperature will be checked using a contactless digital thermometer. If 37.8 degrees or higher, you will need to reschedule your lesson;
  • Lessons will start and end with hand-sanitising and sanitising of high-touch areas; 
  • Social distancing of one metre plus will  take place;
  • Face coverings to be worn by tutees and myself ;
  • Each tutee will be provided with their own writing implements which will not be shared with anyone else;

Unfortunately, without a commitment to the above conditions (and my General T&Cs), secured weekly slots will be given to tutees who are able to adhere to all conditions.


Remote tuition (as described below) is reserved for families in quarantine and/or during further lockdowns.

System A - File drop-off and phone call: This system requires you to drop off your file for marking. You will need a WhatsApp account, a means of photographing work (a Smart phone, scanner or camera) and a telephone.

Once you have collected, completed and returned your work, I will mark it with detailed comments and provide new tasks for the upcoming week. Oral and written tests, and discussion of new concepts will take place by telephone.

System B - Video calls: Although video calls work well for the science subjects, I discourage them for English because I have found them to be a less efficient and effective mode of tuition than the above.  This system will therefore only be considered for tutees who live over ten miles away.


Considering how rapidly the pandemic situation is changing, please keep checking this page for updates.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.
