3.       You will probably be asked to enable things such as your microphone, camera and audio – click 'OK' when prompted.


4.       You can choose a photo for your profile via settings if you want.


5.       Please tell your tutor whether you are using a smartphone, tablet or laptop if you can.


6.       Prior to your lesson you should ensure you have any equipment you need and a suitable space to work.

Text message – click on the blue Zoom box at the top right of the message.

Email – click on the link in the email you received inviting you to join a Zoom meeting.
