Since only a few persons applied to attend the Communication Studies Crash Course on Sunday 12th May (probably because it is Mother's Day), I have decided to cancel that day's class and accommodate everyone on Friday and Saturday. If you registered for that day, please contact me.
Sunday 2nd June's session is fine.
Please note that the Part One Caribbean Studies Crash Course on FRIDAY 3RD MAY and SATURDAY 4TH MAY are now full. There are still places available on Sunday. All those persons who have already submitted registration forms are good.
I am beginning to work on the Communication Studies registrations.
From April 1st, Daniell's Institute of Learning is moving to a new venue: Hamilton Holder Street opposite the Woodbrook Youth Facility so we are moving with them. It is a two-storey brown building on the corner.
If you are coming from Ariapita Avenue, turn down De Verteuil Street (towards Wrightson Road) and it is the first corner on the right. The brown buiding is ahead of you on the left.
If you are coming from Wrightson Road, turn up at the traffic lights and it is the second corner on your right. The entrance is on the side street.
All the students have been told and know where the place is. There is NO NEED to call me.
The purple cross marks the spot.
Details about the 2019 Crash Courses and Registration forms can be found here:
Classes for both Caribbean and Communication Studies begin this week at the usual times and place. The Caribbean Studies Revision Course will begin on Saturday 19th).
In Caribbean Studies, we are continuing Topic 1.6 - Societal Institutions (Tab L) and will be focusing on Religion and the Justice System. You need to check your binders to know if you are missing notes in any of the topics.
In Communication Studies, we are beginning Module Three. You should read the notes for the Module (Tabs P, Q and R) and the model essays ( Tab U).
At the start and end of each class (at least for this week), I would be grateful for assistance to carry my notes etc. to and from my car.
I look forward to seeing you all.
A Happy New Year to all of you.
Unfortunately, I have a medical issue which makes it impossible to begin lessons in the week of Monday 7th. I hope to be able to start on the 14th and ask that you check here to verify the start date. This applies to both regular lessons in Caribbean and Communication Studies and the Revision Course for Caribbean Studies.
Since I am not at home and do not have access to email addresses, I need your help in passing the word. Please let everyone you know doing Caribbean or Communication Studies know that class will not begin this week.
I am really sorry about this but it cannot be helped.
I look forward to seeing you all soon.
Forms are now available for the Revision Course in Caribbean Studies and in Communication Studies. Either see below or go to the General Lessons Administration tab above.
The Revision Course is geared towards those who are repeating the subject or those who have been unable to attend regular lessons but who are fairly in touch with the syllabus. Persons who are completely at a loss will not benefit. Persons attending my regular lessons class in that subject are not eligible to attend.
Caribbean Studies begins on 12th January 2019 and will run for nine Saturdays (excluding Carnival Saturday). Each session begins at 1.30pm and will last three hours.
Communication Studies begins on Sunday 3rd February 2019 and will run for seven Sundays (excluding the two Sundays preceding Carnival). Each session begins at 1.30pm and will last three hours.
You can register by email by attaching the completed registration form to an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for Caribbean Studies or to email@example.com for Communication Studies. Please put REVISION COURSE REGISTRATION in the subject line.
CARIBBEAN STUDIES Revision Course registration forms can be found here.
COMMUNICATION STUDIES Revision Course registration forms can be found here.
Please note that registration is closed for my regular classes. It is simply not possible for me to accommodate any more students for either Caribbean or Communication Studies. Please do NOT contact me with personal requests to "squeeze one more in." I am sorry but it is not going to happen.
Registration forms for the Revision Course are now available.
Because of a few cancellations and transfers to other days, there are now a few spots open on Thursday for Caribbean Studies. The class is from 3.30pm - 5.30pm.
This is a reminder that Caribbean Studies lessons begin this week. The location for the class is Lazare Street in St. James, the street on which the St. James Police Station is located. Classes take place at the Daniell’s Institute of Learning; the entrance (with a sign on the gate “Daniell’s Institute of Learning”) is directly opposite the entrance to the police station.
You go up the stairs, walk past the classroom on your right, turn right and follow the outside corridor to the door with an Emergency Exit sign, go through the door, turn left, walk down the short corridor and go through another door to the classroom. Please note that, once class has started, I do not answer the phone and will not be able to give directions.
Students should dress appropriately for class, taking note that the air-conditioning in the room is quite cold and cannot be adjusted.
Students should bring
Students should make every effort to be punctual and should be picked up promptly after class since they must wait on the pavement. It is not always possible for me to wait for them to be collected. If students are driving, they should be careful to observe parking regulations in the area. You cannot enter Lazare Street from the Western Main Road and the pavement in front of the police station is not an appropriate place to park. Students should request to be accompanied to their car if necessary; I will be happy to assist with this.
I hope that the year is an enjoyable and productive one. Parents should not hesitate to contact me, preferably by email, if they have any questions.
