- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Online Students will need:

1. Access to a PC and good internet connection (Windows XP or above).
2. Download Skype to your PC from (concealed information) and make a Skype account if you don't already have one.
3. Install the whiteboard add-on to skype (email me for more details).
4. Get a good headset with a microphone.
5. If you want to do a face-to-face online, you will also need a good quality Skype-compatible webcam (check the Skype site for ideas).

Payment

Online students need to have a Paypal account or make arrangements to pay me by postal order, or post office moneygram. International students can pay by paypal, bank transfer or Western Union. Please email me for more details.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Do you need an extra brain?

Passing exams is not just about getting information from the book into your brain. It's about getting your ideas from your brain onto the page. With me, we will iron out the knowledge and understanding problems, but we will focus a lot on getting you through that all important exam, or completing that crucial assignment. I'll focus on how you learn best and how to turn your learning style to grade-gaining advantage. You might find that many of the skills you learn with me can be transferred easily to other subjects.

For people struggling with literacy at any age, maybe I can help. Spend thirty minutes, three times a week, for three months, online with me, and read the difference.

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have a very broad academic base which includes Biomedical Science and Social Sciences. I have taught ESOL and also ESOL through ordinary school subjects (Social and life sciences) in Korea and India, and taught academic writing up to tertiary level in the UK.

British Institute of International and Comparative Law.
