Tuition options

Tuition can be given on Sewing Machines and/or Software in your own home, school or college.

Home Tuition.

If you can come to my home, we can work at your pace on a “one to one” basis so that you understand it fully. (Not everyone learns well in a class situation, so this is sometimes better).

Group Tuition.

If you prefer to learn in a group, (this is often more fun), and you may have friends who would like to join you so that you can learn together.  You choose the venue – either your home if there is enough room, or hire a hall if you are a larger group. This often works out cheaper.

Courses for Schools or Colleges.

I also give courses to school/college tutors.

If you are a tutor of textile courses in your school or college, and need further help in understanding the Brother software and how this applies to sewing techniques needed for the courses you are teaching, I am available to help you. I am often called upon to run courses for tutors either on a one to one basis or in a small group. If requested, I can also give a basic introductory course to small groups of students as well, and in conjunction with an interactive white board, this works really well. The students usually find this great fun, and are really keen to progress their knowledge afterwards.   


I can travel to you, and most customers prefer this.

Alternatively, as mentioned  in my Home Page, I am also happy for you to come to me if you prefer. (Travel expenses would obviously not be charged for this.)


One to one tuition in your home:- I charge £15 per hour, plus 50p per mile travelling expenses in each direction, if I travel to you.

If you wish to include a friend or a group of friends in on the tuition (providing you have the room in your home), then I am happy to do so, but this will be reflected in the price and will need to be discussed when booking.
