HOW IT WORKS
- Contact me for a free consultation.
- Make your payment.
- Schedule your session/s.
- Lesson materials will be sent to you to review and prepare for the lesson.
- Connect on Skype - log on Skype and contact me at the time of the lesson.
The purpose of the free consultation is for us to get to know each other, discuss your learning objectives and, together, decide on a learning plan and a schedule that best suits your goals.
You will need a Skype account and a computer with a reliable Internet connection.
The materials are shared via Google Drive, email and web links.
A tutoring session is 55-60 minutes long.
Lessons are delivered via Skype. When necessary, additional visual and audio materials will be shared via Google documents or web links.
Depending on your learning goals and objectives, you may be given additional tasks and assignments to complete before your next session.
My regular hourly rate is $17.00 or €16.00 per session (55-60 min). Those apply for single projects and occasional services. Otherwise, lessons are paid in blocks of 5, 10, and 20 lessons. The more lessons you buy at a single time, the more you save. See details on the Pricing page.
You can pay for a single lesson for individual or short-term projects, such as proofreading, preparing a presentation, mock job/university interview or any other service that requires less than 5 sessions.
After we agree on a learning schedule and you decide on the type of package which best suits you, you can proceed to the Payment page on the website and click on the package that best suits you.
Payments are processed via PayPal. You do not necessarily need to have an account. Clicking on the payment button will take you to a PayPal payment page where you can choose whether to log into your account, create a new one or proceed by paying directly with your Credit or Debit Card. Either way, the payment is processed on PayPal’s secure servers. See more about how How PayPal works.
From the Scheduling page, select a date and time for your lesson. Before that, make sure your correct time zone is displayed. You will be asked to provide your name and email address. Once you complete your booking and receive a confirmation email to your email address, you do not need to send any additional messages in order to confirm your appointment. I will be notified and will be waiting for you at the specified date and time.
It is advisable to book your lessons at least 24 hours in advance to give me enough time to prepare your lesson.
Of course, you can. We are only human and, every now and then, things that are beyond our control happen to us. It is only reasonable, and a matter of courtesy, to do so in a timely manner or, in the event of emergency, notify me as soon as possible.
Yes, we can. It is actually in your best interest to do so. You will be more likely to see progress by committing to a regular long-term study routine rather than having sporadic sessions once in a while.
Students should be at least 11 or 12 years old and should have prior knowledge of English to enable them to communicate at a basic level.
It will be difficult for us to communicate if your English level is below lower intermediate. You will need to be able to understand basic instructions and explanations in English.
