Presentations: I offer a variety of virtual visit sessions, more details of which can be found on my Virtual Visits Page.

Fees (as of April 2021) range from $85 for a 30 minute session "Term Special" session up to $140 for my 45 minute sessions.
30% discount for additional sessions booked by the same school in the same booking.

After using Skype for my virtual visits for several years, I've switched to using Zoom as it's far simpler to use and administrate. I'm also happy to arrange virtual visits using Google Meet. I don’t currently offer sessions using Microsoft Teamsas it is incompatible with Apple Keynote, which I use for most of my sessions, and does not work well on my Mac computer.

Audiences: Children aged 4-8 years old.

I’m happy to consider virtual visit requests from any English-speaking school, providing the visit can be done between 9:00am and 9.00pm United Kingdom time on a weekday.

No recording of virtual visit sessions without permission from the author.

Virtual Visits Page to request a virtual visit.
