Back to my Virtual Visits Page


(Last updated Thu. May 3, 2018 )

Thanks for your interest in my virtual visits! NOTE: This page is an unlisted page. Please do NOT share it with anyone else without my permission, thanks.

Every school year, I open up a limited number of free Skypevisit (and other virtual visit) slots, depending on my work schedule and paid visit requests. Paid visits always get priority but if I notice a quiet time in my schedule, I will open up a few slots and offer them first to those already on my waiting list and then (if there are still spaces available) to my newsletter subscribers.


"During the month of May 2018 on Wednesdays, I am going to be offering free 15-minute Q&A Skype video sessions from 9:30 am EST through until 3 pm EST. I am offering these to my subscribers FIRST. If you're interested, please fill out my Visit Request form. and make sure you indicate that you are a newsletter subscriber. I will assign sessions on a first-come, first-serve basis, so in the comment section of the form, please do indicate (1) what date you prefer (May 9, 16, 23 or 30) and (2) what time-slots between 9:30 am - 3 pm EST are best for you. If you prefer a timeslot outside of 9:30-3, feel free to say so but be warned that I may not be able to accommodate."

For FREE Skypevisits: Sessions will consist of a 15 minute Q&A. Please let me know in advance which book your students will have read, so I can have props/sketches available to show.

**** If you would like a drawing workshop or a session longer than 15 minutes, please do consider one of my regular paid virtual visits
