- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online tutoring is recommended for those who cannot travel, who live far away or who find it easy to learn. You will be supplied with my Skype ID which is vkondou and/or the link to Bitpaper once confirmation of the lesson has taken place. All materials will be supplied online. Lessons can be recorded at the discretion of the client so the pupil can revert back to the lesson.

I tutor on a 1-1 basis, group basis, online and distance learning. Due to my busy schedule, massive bookings and the client request to fit everyone in, I mostly tutor in my house; parents can stay with their children whilst tutoring or finish off their own work; internet facilities are available along with refreshments.

Comments: Vasso has so far been an excellent help to a busy family with bringing our son up to speed, not only educationally but also in terms of addressing his confidence, diet and physical fitness. I have seen a marked improvement in his attitude towards and enjoyment of school since then and hopefully this will continue to reap benefits for him. Highly recommended, and very knowledgeable in all areas of education and development.

Comments: Vasso helped my daughter gain her confidence and hopefully bump her grace from a C to a B in her AS exam. Great tutor, my daughter got on really well with her and we will be going back again after the summer holidays for additional A-level tutoring.
