- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I would prefer to avoid teaching online as I do not believe this is a good way forward when it comes to languages. However, I can advise on links and useful sources and I can also set and check HW via e-mail. I can discuss issues via Skype.

Expect to work hard and only then to be rewarded! Please, do not hesitate and contact me, your issues can be always discussed!!!!Jarmila

No, as I have not taught young children or vulnerable adults for some years.
