Here's what my real students say:

I am extremely pleased with Kerstin as a tutor. We use FaceTime and Google Docs (and occasionally Skype when FaceTime is uncooperative) to communicate between Lancaster, England, and Houston, Texas. I am learning and making progress and I am excited about it!

Enhancing your lessons with Video Materials

Work through the lecture introducing video chat tools, and consider the different devices and media skills that you can use to liven up your lessons.

Choose your favourite as your Plan A, then make notes about how you will create that all-important Plan B.

You need a Plan B because:

• Your student might be using a set-up you're not familiar with

• Thousands of unexpected problems might appear at any time

Print out this worksheet or save it on your computer and complete columns 2 and 3 to make sure you are fully prepared for all eventualities.
