Doing it Online

The pandemic has meant that we are all having to work a bit differently. Our Gold, Platinum and Improver packages all offer face to face support with our tutor. This includes an hour introductory session where your tutor will go through the basic theory and at the end of the hour, you will even be able to start writing some words/sentences in Teeline! Your tutor will also run through the format of the lessons and discuss how you would like to undertake the course. We are so flexible that we will work with you and your timescales and preferred method of learning.
