Cheap Broadband

I don’t usually blog anything political but I am incandescent about this:

The incompetence of this Education Secretary of State leaves me speechless.

Home schooling problems?

It is possible to obtain free or cheap increased mobile data if you need it for home-schooling.

Three, BT, Virgin and Vodafone all have cheap or free offers available to people struggling.

If you need to access material for your offspring , don’t despair as BBC Bitesize provides masses of English and French with some interactive and practice questions.

Skype lessons

Due to Covid I am still only teaching via Skype and will not have any slots available until February at the earliest. I still have a waiting list of three so would advise people to look elsewhere for urgent tuition – sorry I can’t help!

Skype online tuition

Sadly, due to the coronavirus situation I have had to pause face to face tuition.

Don’t forget that I can offer online tuition if you would like to keep your studies going while schools remain closed. I am available during the day as well as some evening times and am happy to offer weekly or fortnightly lessons – just contact me for more details.
