|NOT SURE ABOUT TECHNOLOGY:
IT REALLY IS EASY. If your like many and feel that twinge of pain when thinking about technology don't let that stop you. I will guide you through the entire setup process (which doesn't take much time) over the phone at an agreed upon time the weekend before the our first lesson. Believe me, if I can get my children's grandmother in the US using skype I can get anyone up and running.
Not sure if face to face skype lessons would work for you? Well first, you will get a feel for it on the weekend setup session. Secondly, you are not locked into any more lessons. You can stop at any time. In the past most of my students from the Gold Coast drive 45 minutes for face to face lessons, but once they trial the skype never drive down again preferring the convenience of working at home.
