One-to-one Tuition

Don’t feel comfortable learning in a crowd?
Maybe you would prefer a personal astronomy one-to-one tuition session?

If so, I can now offer astronomy and astrophotography one-to-one tuition.
Due to growing demand, this also includes remote sessions using Zoom.

All time charged at £35 per hour (Minimum of 2 hours).
If you book a full day of 6 hours, it would be discounted to £180.
(There are no other hidden expenses).

Can’t come to me?
If you’d like this in person, I am happy to travel to you as long as any incurred travelling expenses are paid.

Tuition can also now be done virtually using Zoom, so I can now tuition you no matter where you are located and avoid any extra travelling costs (Minimum of 2 hours tuition).
This is necessary at the moment with the present social distancing measures in place.
