Tuition Information

The following steps will ensure tuition runs as safely as possible during these uncertain times to help prevent transmission of coronavirus.

Indoor Face-to-face Tuition

Indoor  face-to-face tuition has now resumed subject to all parties adhering strictly to the following conditions:

  • You will be asked to sign a brief coronavirus health check questionnaire prior to the first lesson;
  • Lessons should be rescheduled by all parties at the first sign of any ill-health, regardless of how minor and whether or not we suspect it to be coronavirus;   
  • On arrival,  your temperature will be checked using a contactless digital thermometer. If your temperature is 37.8 degrees or higher, you will need to reschedule your lesson;
  • Before arrival, tutees are requested to 1) use their own toilets  and 2) bring their own writing implements; 
  • Face coverings to be worn by tutee and myself;
  • The tutee's parents are requested to drop off and collect their child at my doorstep;
  • Lessons will start and end with hand-sanitising and sanitising of high-touch areas (work areas, door handles, etc.); 
  • Social distancing of one metre plus will  take place.

Unfortunately, without a commitment to the above conditions (besides my T&Cs), secured weekly slots will be lost and given to tutees on my waiting list who are able to adhere to all conditions.

Remote Tuition (
should we return to lockdown)

Essential requirements: an email and WhatsApp account, a means of photographing work (a Smart phone, scanner or camera) and a telephone.

Additional requirements: for those wishing to include video calls (Zoom), you will need a computer with good internet connection, a webcam, a printer, a microphone and speakers/headphones. 

Homework: Once you have received, completed and returned your work to me (either left on my doorstep, via email or WhatsApp), I will mark and return it with detailed comments, and provide new tasks for the upcoming week. Oral and written tests, and discussion of new concepts will take place either on Zoom or by telephone – whichever you prefer.


Considering how rapidly the situation is changing, please keep checking this page for updates.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times. 

Best wishes,
