5 questions about private Finnish lessons

I think that my website about my private Finnish lessons is quite informative, but here are some questions and answers that might be interesting to you:

1. I'm interested in participating in one of the mini group classes. What if all the others are much more advanced speakers than I am?

- I have planned my mini courses so that I help and correct each participant individually. That means that only one person will speak at a time while the others listen. Everybody will hear my corrections and see my notes.

2. Can I take lessons together with my friend?

- Yes you can. I will just send the bill to both of you, and you can share the costs as you want.

3. What if I need to cancel my lesson? Or what if I accidentally forget it? Do I have to pay for that?

- No, you don't. Just let me know in advance if you have to cancel. However, if you end up cancelling or forgetting your lesson too often, I will probably suggest that you would book fewer lessons. I can also send you a reminder message, if you want.

4. What if I need to take a break from private lessons? Will I lose my spot? And how can I continue my lessons after a break?

- You can stop taking lessons with me any time you want, and you can also continue any time that is good for you. However, if you used to have a regular time with me, you might have to change it, if I have already given the time to a new student.

5. You suggested that we could meet on Sunday at 10.00. Did you mean my time or your time?

- I always talk about Finland time. Depending on the time of year, that is either Eastern European Time (UTC+2) or Eastern European Summer Time (UTC+3). I do sleep, but I can be up and awake really early and really late.

In addition to teaching, I also simplify novels into easy Finnish.
