ESSENTIAL SKILLS AND QUALITIES

ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE CLEARLY
The ability to speak and understand English clearly. (Australian-English!)
In order to ascertain this ability, the first step is for a brief conversation via Skype.
My preferred means of communication is via voice rather than text.

SKYPE
A clear Internet/Skype connection is essential.

TEAM VIEWER
Have TeamViewer installed on computer. TeamViewer is a free software program that enables remote support and online meetings. Free download available at www.teamviewer.com.
The purpose of TeamViewer is to enable the Tutor to be able to see (and control if necessary) the display, keyboard and mouse on my computer.
It is not necessary for me to use TeamViewer to access the Tutor’s computer. If the Tutor needs to demonstrate something to me, it can be done via Skype screen-share - whereby I don’t have any access to the Tutor’s computer - other than to view the demonstration(s) that the Tutor wishes me to see.

AVAILABILITY
Be available at a set time/times on certain day(s) of the week. To be negotiated.

RELIABILITY
If unable to keep to a set meeting time, inform me know via email, text, SMS to mobile or whatever means agreed upon.

RAPPORT
I like to form professional friendships with people with whom I work. I offer - and expect in return openness and honesty.
