Congratulations! You would not be reading this if you had not decided that it was time to further your education (or that of your child). In today’s ever more competitive world, every step you take in educating yourself increases the value you have to others and the ability to make more and better choices further on down the pathway of your life.
Education and knowledge are not only the key to a more interesting life but also to greater prosperity. There is a good reason that the phrase “Knowledge is Power” exists in so many languages!
As in my teaching methods themselves, I make the process of booking and having lessons as easy and painless as I can.
First, please click HERE to go to my blog and read the first post, which briefly outlines some simple questions you need to answer for yourself before you get in touch with me. You need to clarify for yourself how much time you have for your studies, how motivated you are to learn and what goals and outcomes you want to achieve.
Once you have answered these questions for yourself, you write me an email and briefly outline what you want to achieve and how you want to go about getting there.
We arrange a first (free) Skype call to discuss your requirements and to get to know each other a little and to possibly set up times and a lesson plan.
You decide on how many lessons you want to book as a “block booking”. The more lessons you book as a “block”, the cheaper it works out per lesson. Initially, you may want to book one single lesson, just so as to see if my teaching style and methods appeal to you.
As you have seen from reading my blog (please read my blog before contacting me!), I have strong beliefs about how I like to teach, based on my many years of teaching experience.
Payment for the classes happens in advance and through Paypal. To book a class, please book at least 48 hours in advance, unless we have established a regular weekly schedule. If you cannot make it to a class, the lesson fee is not refundable and the lesson cannot simply be rescheduled.
In the extremely unlikely event that I cannot make a class, I will do my best to let you know in advance and you will either be refunded or we will reschedule the class.
I will provide all necessary teaching materials initially, usually in the form of Word Documents or PDFs. I may send you links to online materials or videos, which are openly available. Should they not be available to you for some reason, we will make alternative arrangements. Where there is a will, a way can usually be found!
Should we settle into a fairly long term teaching arrangement, I may ask you to purchase an online textbook from Amazon or some teaching website, but not within the first month or two.
Each lesson is between 45 and 50 minutes long.
Current rates are as follows:
|Number of lessons||Price per lesson||Total Cost|
|Single lesson||US $ 35||US $ 35|
|Five lessons||US $ 30||US $ 150|
|Ten lessons||US $ 28||US $ 280|
For ongoing, regular students it is also possible to book 20 lesson blocks at a special rate of US $25 per lesson, i.e. $500.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me.
