Frequently Asked Questions
What is the outline of a lesson?
The general outline of a one-on-one online lesson:
- Small talk (back and forth communication is encouraged)
- Answering questions you might have about your previous lesson’s material and/or giving your reflection about the feedback you received on your previous homework
- Working on your needs: This is the part of your lesson when we work on new tasks to improve your skills. This is also the main part of the lesson, hence we spend approximately 45 minutes on it.
- Closing of our session (summary of the freshly learnt skills, Q&A, Homework Assignment)
Naturally, your age and aims, YOU and your life are different from everyone else’s. Therefore, the above is only a guideline.
What equipment and software do I need for the lesson?
Online lessons are held on Skype or Zoom. We use voice, chat, video and screen share features as well. If you don’t have a fast internet connection, (and you are an adult) you may switch your video feed off.
Why do you have a learning contract?
In any co-operation, it is important to have an agreement which provides the basics of mutual respect.
