An online tutor??
Your questions answered 🙋
Here are some of my most common questions.
If there is anything else you would like to know, you can always contact me here.
Is online tutoring as effective as in-person lessons?
Many studies, including some from the U.S. Department of Education, show that online learning is just as effective as classroom learning, and in some cases even better when interactive learning elements are present. I've tapped into those insights to make sure our lessons are not just effective, but also super engaging for you.
How do online language lessons work?
Lessons are held via Zoom, a video conferencing platform. Each lesson involves real-time interaction with me, guided learning, and practice exercises.
What will I need for my lessons?
You'll need a computer or device with internet access.
I provide all the learning materials.
Do I have to be on camera?
Not if you don't want to be! I think it helps us connect, but, if you feel more comfortable without a camera, thats totally fine.
How long is each lesson?
Each session typically lasts 60 minutes, though I offer longer sessions upon request.
What are your qualifcations?
I was Head of the Modern Foreign Languages department at multiple schools. I have worked in high achieving schools in the UK, Europe and Asia for over 10 years.
What is the process if I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson?
I will always do whatever I can to rearrange a lesson at a more convenient time. Where possible please provide me with a minimum of 24 hours notice.
