- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Firstly I would have an introductory Skype call so that I could best understand the student and parent's needs. I would then tailor a lesson programme to these needs and set the work via email with clear instructions. Following on from this I would run a virtual lesson to go through the work over Skype with the student and then afterwards follow this up with any notes or thoughts on progress made via email.
