Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
The online lesson works via Skype or FaceTime. In addition to that we have a shared document, on which both of us will write notes, which will be sent to you after the lesson. We will also do listening exercises and some grammar games.

During the first lesson we will have an additional 20min at the beginning, so we have more time to get to know each other and try out the online tools.
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
