COVID-19: Temporary move to online learning

  

From March 2020, as a temporary measure all QUEST TOKYO services will be offered online. 

We are committed to ensuring continuity of learning and enjoyment of study using online teaching tools.


Frankly, online learning is not our first choice of tool for teaching; we at QUEST TOKYO prefer to be face-to-face when working with children. In this situation, however, we have no choice so will work hard to get very good at effectively using technology, very quickly. We appreciate there may be some online learning fatigue from prolonged school closures; we will endeavour to be as flexible and creative as possible.


We believe this action is in the best interest of the health and safety of everyone in the QUEST TOKYO community and ensures we are prepared should a more prolonged government request to stay at home occur in the coming weeks.


These are challenging times for all small businesses, thank you for staying with us. 

Hopefully we will be through the worst of this situation soon.
