In addition to private tutoring, I offer courses in history and Scottish Gaelic language. These courses are generally offered through Seattle Central College. Click on the link to see what is currently being offered and to register.

If you are not local to the Seattle area, consider scribing to my Goraidh - A Gaelic Language Tutor Patreon page. In addition to blogging about topics related to my courses, I'm revising all my handouts and posting them there. Check it out to learn more about different subscription levels.

If you would like to host me (in person) with a group of your friends, or get a group together for one of my classes online (via skype), contact me!
