Private online language instruction allows you and your teacher to collaborate in creating a curriculum that fits your needs, no matter where you live and from the comfort of your home or office.
Online instruction can be very effective, and Skype is a powerful instructional tool. It allows for document and screen sharing, so that both student and instructor can look at the same page or handout, and even highlight words and phrases or type comments on it. The instant messaging feature works like a whiteboard, with the advantage that the student is left with a record of the lesson to review in between sessions.
How does it work? The instructor will Skype-call the student at the appointed hour. During the lesson, the instructor will use the Screen Sharing feature to share handouts or websites (all material for the lesson will also be emailed to the student ahead of time). The instructor will also type all new vocabulary or examples on the instant messaging window.
What do I need? You will need a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone. You will need to download Skype and create an account. Skype accounts are free.
If you are unsure if online instruction is for you, we will gladily do a free half-hour lesson to help you decide.
