Jane teaches her clients.
Many training establishments provide handouts
and/or programmes on DVD/CD-Rom and expect their pupils to "have
a go". This leaves them struggling and having to ask for
assistance (or get left behind), which can be stressful, not to
mention humiliating, particularly if in a classroom environment. Wikipedia's definition of E-learning - "... is essentially the computer and network-enabled transfer of skills and knowledge. E-learning applications and processes include Web-based learning, computer-based learning, virtual education opportunities and digital collaboration. Content is delivered via the Internet, intranet/extranet, audio or video tape, satellite TV, and CD-ROM ". Where is the personal coaching and interaction? So you got to the end, but did you learn anything? Did you enjoy it?
One-to-one tuition is not like that. It
is not humiliating. It is personal coaching. You can repeat something as many times
as you like and ask as many questions as you wish, no-one else
is watching and I don't mind! And what is more learning can actually be enjoyable too!
Jane is your private coach. She is
there to help you.
