"Enlarge your circle"
For those who have difficulty attending regular classes due to location or scheduling issues, we offer the opportunity for supplemental, one-to-one instruction online. This is not meant to replace in-person teaching but can enhance progress, attendance issues in mind. This is especially well-suited for beginners; however, more experienced students who have moved away and have not found an instructor may want to explore this option. We will consider each situation case-by-case.
Those interested but who have not trained with Surrey Tai Chi Club should write by email including a little about their background, especially as it relates to tai chi, and reasons for wanting instruction.
Requirements: Online students will need a webcam, preferably wide angle if not in a big room, microphone, and Skype account. We can help make sure you have the right equipment and set-up. With Skype there will be no cost for the online connection itself. Sessions will generally run 30 minutes. Session fees will be agreed before hand. Online students will be invoiced via Google checkout which requires a gmail (googlemail) account and will pay by credit or debit card.
Form Analysis: Students can also choose as an alternative, or in addition, Form Analysis. A video of them doing the form will be analyzed and a written report produced with detailed commentary and corrections.
