Personal Tuition

Sometimes working one to one with a tutor is a great way to move forward with specific skills that you wish to learn. Another reason may be that you would prefer to do shorter workshops on a regular basis to suit your busy week.

Working with Deborah you can choose very specific subjects which you wish to develop in the barn.

I am able to offer one to one tuition at a time that is convenient to you.
