How do I set up my webcam, laptop or iPad?
You will need to position your webcam, laptop or iPad so it shows a clear view of your hands on the keyboard. You should position your computer monitor, laptop or iPad so you can comfortably and clearly see the screen. Although not essential, a headset or headphones are useful too.

You don’t need to worry about connection speed, broadband connections are sufficient and since we will meet over a Skype video call before lessons are arranged, we will be able to see if your conenction is good enough at that time.
