Affordable Consultancy

Having attended one of my workshops, parents will have gained a better understanding of the technology that can transform their child’s learning, them to reach their full potential.

However, parents are not always in the best position to help their children put these solutions into practicse becasue:

  • life is busy;

  • the knowledge they need to gain is overwhelming, while their children could pick it up easily;

  • theirchildren are not receptive to learning from them.

In these cases, parents can schedule consultancy. This can either be in your own home or remotely via a phone / video conference. Both give parents confidence that all the suitable solutions, are correctly installed on devices and their children are trained to use them.  

Consultancy sets you up for success

Consultancy @ Home

We come to your home and work with you on your devices.

What’s happens in a typical Consulatncy @ Home Session?

We train parents and children together to utilise technology and strategies that aid the revision process.
Normally the initial session would take a minimum of two hours during which time we:

  • Ascertain which strategies/solutions would be beneficial;

  • Create user accounts;

  • Train how to use solutions;

  • Teach a structured methodology for revision;

  • We provide a post consultancy report of the solutions discussed.

Dependent on individual required, this might take longer or warrant two separate meetings.

How much does it cost?

£70 per hour + £20 per hour travel time.

Remote Consultancy

In order to help families where distance or logistics prevent meeting face to face, we offer remote consultancy. Essentially, the same service is provided as with the Consultancy @ Home service described above, but using a phone or webinar rather than a face to face meeting.

Just talking to someone knowledgeable can save a lot of time,
money and frustration.

How does it work?

Initially we can talk on the phone but more detailed anaylsis requires video conferencing. We use Zoom (You don’t need an account to participate).

  • Through screen share, we show you slides and solutions in action

  • We create user accounts for solutions that meet your family’s specific needs

  • With your permission we can access your computer remotely, see and understand any IT problems you are experiencing and advise on resolving these difficulties  

How much does it cost?

Initial Phone Conversation £70 per hour

The one hour call is designed to get a thorough understanding of the needs of your family and any areas of concern, then we suggest appropriate solutions.
We are then in a position to agree a plan of action.

Follow-Up Consultation £35 per half hour slot.

Once the plan of action is agreed, follow up consultancy enables us to work together remotely to create all the necessary accounts and to train you and your family how to use each of the solutions effectively.


Unlike face to face consultancy where travel time/cost impacts the session length to a minimum of 2 hours, remote consultations can easily be shorter to ensure against brain overload.

Once you start using the solutions, follow up consultancy is scheduled in 30-minute slots, can be used to evaluate how things are going and answer any further questions you may have.

Coaching 

Coaching has been developed as an ongoing follow up and support to students’ whose initial enthusiasm and good intentions have waned after their Consultancy@Home.

Unlike tutoring, coaching does not require weekly sessions, where students are taught subject content, instead students are given guidance and support in the following areas:

  • Looking at what needs to be learned, by when and coming up with a plan of how best to do this;

  • Finding information to aid understanding;

  • Organising school work;

  • Discussing strategies for making the most of school lessons;

  • Teaching how to take great revision notes and convert them in to helpful quizzes;

  • Working through a structured methodology for revision;

  • Instructing on how to master a subject;

  • Improving exam technique working with past papers, mark schemes, examiners reports and model answers.

  • Setting work to be completed before our next session.

Coaching can be scheduled as required. Parental involvement while welcome is not necessary.
