Where to begin with One-to-One Sessions?
Whether you or your child are interested in having one-to-one expert tuition to develop confidence in an area or qualification of the subject, or to have further input or support with a creative problem, or to expand the range within media use or to have step by step instruction on a specific skill, the place to start is to have an initial consultation. This will allow for “perspective” and a plan of action to be formed. The initial consultation requires, if relevant, current work to be brought along so that we can identify areas to flourish and to build on. Usually this is a 30 minute consultation which is free of charge. The cost of the sessions is £30 per hour.
Typical One-to-One sessions will consist of one hour or two hour sessions after school hours, at the weekends or during school holidays which are designed to plug the gap or to extend the skills of individual students.
