Course length and pricing
I will offer a range of different courses at different price points, with some of them being free of charge. The free course materials are created just like the paid counterparts to give you an exact idea of how you’re taught, what the downloadable workbooks look like, and whether you feel there would be enough value and actionable advice for you to want to work with me.
The courses are divided as follows:
- E-courses: full-length courses at premium price
- Mini-courses: bite-sized courses, worth a beverage or two yet packed with long-lasting value
- Nano-courses: tiny courses true to their name, quick and free introductions to topics presented
- Email courses: length varies but these will be sent according to a regular schedule via email
I’m also looking into webinars, which some people seem to call workshops. I don’t want to add to the confusion by talking about workshops, unless they are in person (which there are no plans for currently), and so a webinar is a circa hour-long seminar on the web. These will have their own page.
My courses related to other services
The themes of my courses go hand in hand with the category topics of my blog, and the different courses will either build upon or otherwise complement each other.
If you find yourself in need of one-on-one instruction related to one of my courses, I’m offering coaching as well.
How we learn depends on many different factors and it isn’t always feasible to enroll in a class where you listen to lectures or sit in a workshop to learn a craft. Sometimes the teaching style isn’t optimal, and other times the teacher isn’t a favourite. When things in our personal or professional lives are shaking, we may find ourselves not being able to participate after all despite having paid for tuition.
All these challenges are minimised when you enroll in a course online, where you can learn at your own pace be it during your commute or in nightwear on your sofa at home. Or you travelled across the world on vacation and find yourself bursting of energy to absorb new information.
From personal experience, I also know how valuable the repeat button is when trying to figure out something tricky. If a phone rings or dog barks, you simply hit rewind to repeat what the teacher just said. This is how I’ve learned both academic subjects and some handicrafts, when barely anyone was teaching the latter locally, and this is how I want you to be able to learn as well.
For several reasons:
- I enjoy teaching. What I quietly burn for is the feeling that you will have one light-bulb moment after the other, and while it’s taken me a few years of self-studies to create a cohesive understanding of in particular the business courses, there is absolutely no point in reinventing the wheel all over.
- When I’m learning something new, I always try to learn it such that I could pass on my knowledge later. This means I ask many questions, with “Why?” being the most common of them, to create as whole a picture as possible. Not understanding why something is done the way it is can be very frustrating, so all my teaching happens with that in mind, to leave as few unanswered questions in your mind as possible.
- My scientific background has its perks, too. For me to even mention the word ultimate in any sort of professional context means that it truly is the most exhaustive guide there is to be found, and I don’t think it is within my reach to create perfection of that kind. The things I create for you to use through my free and paid channels are ‘ambitious,’ but not ‘ultimate.’ I just had to get that off my chest somewhere on this website.
- I’m invested in learning a lot more about learning, in other words how to teach better, and I hope it will be evident in my course materials. I also don’t want you to suffer through my worst university lecture all over again, as everything was read word for word from the slides and students wondered why we had bothered to show up at all. What I’m about to teach aren’t necessarily the easiest topics to digest, but it shouldn’t be horrific despite possible challenges.
- It’s important to me to present things logically, in more than one way. Preferably the student will recall and be able to reproduce something later, too. This sounds like a given, but I’ve had too many teachers over the years, who don’t care at all about the pedagogy of their teaching, which isn’t good enough. Students – you – aren’t worthy of information only, but also of having it presented in the best possible ways (multiple ways, that is).
If you’re anything like me, scattered learning from multiple resources of different quality feels exhausting and stressful, but I’m committed to packing all of it in logical, informative and life-changing courses.
