Online Course Booking Form

1. Course outline

All our online courses are run using Microsoft Teams and for the duration of the course the students will have access to Teams and a secure @oxss.co.uk email. The student will need access to a desktop or laptop (tablets or smart phones are not really sufficient), an internet connection, webcam, microphone and speakers. The webcam etc. can be built in or external. The student will also need access to a mobile phone and an email address (other than the @oxss one) for account authentication and setting up the @oxss email. We have to set up @oxss email otherwise the student will not be able to join lessons via Teams.

We are currently running the following:

  • Ad hoc sessions – 1-to-1 tuition online – minimum booking 4 sessions
  • Ad hoc days – 1-to-1 tuition online – minimum booking 1 day
  • Group tuition – these are booked as group, i.e. the onus is on the customer to create the group - 2 or more students – please enquire.

We can provide courses for:

  • Intro to A level: students transitioning from GCSE/IGCSE to A level
  • Intro to degree level: Students transitioning from A level to degree - higher fees incurred
  • Intro to GCSE & IGCSE: students sitting GCSEs & IGCSEs in 2022
  • Intro to IB: students sitting IB final exams in 2022
  • 1st year GCSE & IGCSE students: students sitting GCSEs & IGCSEs in 2021
  • 1st year A level students: students sitting A levels in 2021
  • 1st year IB students: students sitting IB in 2021
  • Other bespoke courses may be available – please enquire via email - kirsty@oxss.co.uk

All bookings incur a £10 set up fee – this gives you an oxss email address and access to Microsoft Teams for the duration of the booking. If you extend a booking then there is no need to pay this fee again. If you rebook at a later date then the £10 fee is incurred again as the email and Teams access will have been revoked.



2. Course Dates

We will be running these courses as long as seems appropriate. At present we will be offering online tuition on Monday to Friday - 9am to 5pm UK time - although we may be able to accommodate alternative hours for overseas students.

Due to the nature of online tuition and the need to set up accounts, we will require at least 24 hours from confirmation of a course to its delivery.

3. Subjects

Subject Level
Please select from the following
Intro to GCSE / IGCSE: students sitting GCSEs & IGCSEs in 2022
Intro to IB: students sitting IBs in 2022
Intro to A level: students transitioning from GCSE/IGCSE to A level
Intro to degree level: Students transitioning from A level to degree - charged at higher rate (£65 to £75 per session)
1st year GCSE & IGCSE students: students sitting GCSEs & IGCSEs in 2021

Please give as much information as you can for the subject(s) you require, e.g. the subject required, if applicable, whether this is GCSE or IGCSE, and the exam board(s) of study.  Providing this information now will speed up the application process. For intro to degree level exact course details are essential – ideally a link to course content.

 

In our experience we find the tuition works best if the tutor and student(s) can see each other. The tutor can “read” the student and see if they are confused, concentrating, happy, etc. Although it is possible to provide tuition without the student being seen, it is preferable for all parties to be visible. If the student(s) are hidden we believe that an important element of 1-to-1 (or small group) tuition is lost.
