What you want to know first: the lesson fees and how to get started

Fees depend on the structure and content of the classes that we decide to set up together. Private (= individual) classes start at $20 an hour, while group classes (using a speaker phone, for example, or using your computer with phone software and several headphones plugged in) start at $30 per hour. (We don't use a stopwatch, so hours tend to be generous.) Payments should in most cases be easy, since I have accounts in Canada, Europe, and Japan.

To get set up you send me an email, we exchange phone numbers, and then we talk. Once we have decided such things as the purpose of the classes, their content and frequency, the level we want to aim for, resources we want to use, the payment modus, etc., we can start. It's all pretty informal and there is no need for a long-term contract (but it can be done that way if you want it, for example if you receive external funding). I am flexible...
