With 30 years of experience teaching Physics, Science & Mathematics in both government & private secondary schools, she not only has the KNOWLEDGE but also the understanding of HOW TO TEACH and HOW students LEARN.

After 30 years in traditional secondary school education, Diane is continuing to use her skills and knowledge to tutor individual students.

Diane's many years as Head of Science involved planning and running excursions, incursions and many Science events to engage students in Science. This, along with her passion for Science, her love of costumes, dressing up and transforming into various characters for Science Week and other programs, has led her to develop in-school presentations and demonstrations for students that are not only informative, but also exciting, fun and engaging.

SKYPE


SKYPE
Skype is a telecommunications application that specializes in providing video chat and voice calls between computers, tablets, mobile devices, the Xbox One console, and smartwatches via the Internet.

Skype also provides instant messaging services. Users may transmit text, video, audio and images.

To download and install Skype on a desktop computer, laptop or mobile (iPhone or android) click this link
https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/ 

Then all you need to do is add me as a new Skype contact. Don't worry, your student is probably going to know how to do this!


Skype data usage
The data used by a Skype video call depends on what devices are involved at either end, and on the 'bandwidth' that is available (i.e. the data transfer rate, or speed of your internet service).

Video calls between two mobile devices using Skype over the cellular network apparently uses about 3.75 MB of data every minute.

If you are on a faster home internet service and making a HD video call, you may use up to about 22.5MB per minute.

The below table shows some approximations of the number of Megabytes used for some typical types of Skype calls - those that don't include videos and those that do.
