One-To-One lessons

Our one-to-one sessions are tailored to your academic or professional objectives, and allow you to focus on an area of personal interest or weakness. The close collaboration with the personal tutor enables you to significantly improve your English whilst receiving constant guidance and support. These one-to-one lessons are combined with self-study sessions so you have the opportunity to reflect on what you have learnt throughout the day.

Individually focused learning

You achieve rapid progress as the content is adapted to the aspects of training you need the most. Lessons provide an opportunity for repetition of material in as much detail as required which provides you with an in depth understanding of the lesson content.

  • The course content is tailored to your academic or professional objectives
  • Special attention is paid to your individual areas of interest and learning style
  • You use the time efficiently, concentrating on what is of highest personal priority
  • Tutor and student work on a personal action plan

Progress tracking and assessment

Prior to the start of your course, you will be tested on your level of English and will have to complete a needs analysis document. This is so your tutor has as much information as possible to prepare the content of your one-to-ones.

Areas of specialisation

One-to-one lessons allow students to develop their English in a specific area related to their career, academic studies or personal interests. Professional areas of specialisation could include CV and cover letter writing, interview practice or focus on specific domains such as medicine, law, finance, engineering, oil and gas. Academic areas of specialisation could range from exam preparation, university entrance preparation or improving study skills for post-graduate research.

Flexible study

One-to-one lessons offer flexibility and can be tailored to meet the availability and language learning requirements of the students. Students may choose to study for any number of hours per week (minimum of 5). Students may bring their own content which the tutor can incorporate into the course, for example, if you are preparing for something specific such as a presentation or preparing a business proposal.
