COVID-19 TUITION  UPDATES
www.manchesterenglishtutor.co.uk

 

In accordance with recent government guidance (of 4th January, 2021), lessons will be remotely delivered, as follows:

Remote Tuition

Remote tuition is reserved only during school closures, total lockdowns and for families in quarantine.

System A - File drop-off and phone call: This system requires you to drop off your file for marking. You will need a WhatsApp account, a means of photographing work (a Smart phone, scanner or camera) and a telephone.

Once you have collected, completed and returned your work, I will mark it with detailed comments and provide new tasks for the upcoming week. Oral and written tests, and discussion of new concepts will take place by telephone.

System B - Video calls: Although video calls work well for the science subjects, I discourage them for English because I have found them to be a less efficient and effective mode of tuition than the above.  This system will therefore only be considered for tutees who live over ten miles away.

Indoor Face-to-face Tuition will resume when schools re-open

This will be subject to all parties adhering strictly to the following conditions:

  • Lessons should be rescheduled by all parties at the first sign of any ill-health, regardless of how minor and whether or not Covid-19 is suspected;
  • Before arrival, tutees are requested to 1) use their own toilets; 2) arrive wearing a face covering; 3) refrain from bringing food or drinks to consume;
  • You will be asked to sign a brief Covid-19 health check questionnaire prior to the first lesson, and refer to this before all subsequent lessons;
  • Tutees to be dropped off and collected at my doorstep;
  • On arrival, your temperature will be checked using a contactless digital thermometer. If it is 37.8 degrees or higher, you will need to reschedule your lesson;
  • Lessons will start and end with hand-sanitising and sanitising of high-touch areas; 
  • Social distancing of one metre plus will  take place;
  • Face coverings to be worn by tutees and myself ;
  • Each tutee will be provided with their own writing implements which will not be shared with anyone else;
  • These lessons will revert to Remote Tuition if schools go into lockdown.

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