Dear pupils,

From Monday 23rd, I will begin teaching via Skype for the forseeable future, unless my pupils specifically request to carry on with one-to-one lessons as usual. I am not self-isolating as such, but it would be unfair for me to keep on with all lessons as normal.

I should mention that my wife works in retail --- specifically, Holland and Barratt, where people go to buy things for when they're ill or feeling peaky (I would say her efforts to help people are not to be sneezed at, but I feel this analogy may be considered somewhat facetious under the circumstances), and the chance of my also carrying the virus is therefore probably rather higher than average. Covid-19 has some particularly lofty ambitions, and I have concluded that it can progress quite well enough without any further assistance from me.

As a bonus, you will also get the amusement of watching me try to operate unfamiliar technology.


Lesson times as usual; considerable flexibility to rearrange or postpone as you desire (usual terms apply). Please confirm your Skype contact information as soon as you are able. Thank you.


Look after yourselves,
