1:1/Small group private lessons

Our One-to-one or Small group private lessons offer the highest level of flexibility for learners of all ages. Whether you want to have fun while gaining new skills, or help your child achieve their potential in MOE curriculum subjects, the British Council’s premium lessons are designed solely for you and your learning goals. Here are three ways that you could benefit.

Personalised support

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to learning. By focusing on your individual needs, our highly qualified and experienced teachers can get you closer to your goals, building your confidence along the way. 

Private tuition can benefit everyone. Children who are inhibited in the classroom can thrive by practising English in a one-to-one or small-group setting, helping them find their voice in a larger group, too. And for adults who may not have seen textbooks in a while, or who need to balance their studies with the demands of work and home, the personalised support can help to keep you on track and motivated by your progress.

Tailor-made content

Every course is unique. From helping professionals achieve industry-specific language goals to preparing students for exam success, the course content is developed to hone in the topics that matter to you. Our private lessons teachers are versatile, equipped with local, international, industry and skills specific experience, having worked with learners of all ages and levels. In addition to helping you improve your English, your teacher can support you in mastering communication skills such as interview and presentation techniques.

Maximum flexibility

One of the key advantages of our One-to-one or Small group private lessons is complete flexibility. Lessons can be taught online, face-to-face, or blended at any of our tuition centres, in your home, place of work – wherever and however you choose. It all begins with a pre-course consultation to understand your learning needs, before assigning a teacher and developing a schedule based on your preferred times and days.
