Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have been tutoring on Skype and google hangouts for over 10 years and a perfected system of tutoring online. I use BitPaper that runs on the student browser along with hundreds of pounds of investment in hardware such as writing tablets. Lessons are recorded so students can review as and when they need. Students gain instant access to a range of resources that I have purchased directly through exam boards such as Exampro and access to all restricted school resources. I also direct them to appropriate resources from outstanding authors. I have accounts with all major publishers of resources including Hodder CGP and many more.
