Testimonials

What our teachers say

  1. 'The benefit of studying 1:1 is that you can design the course and individual lessons very precisely to target the needs of individual learners. It can be a great option for busy students who are looking for a highly personalised and flexible approach.'
  2. 'Having taught high level executives in multinational companies for 15 years, I understand the importance of tailoring the lessons to each student’s perspective and specific context to help them identify and overcome their own personal linguistic challenges.'  
  3. 'I always look to not only make the most of the time in the lesson, but always give a lot of training, resources and guidance on how our students can build on this outside the class.'
  4. 'It’s great to see students go on to achieve their goals at the end of the course. Whether it is getting into the school or university they want, being offered the job they dreamed of or simply being able to chat confidently with their English speaking colleagues and friends'

What our students say

  1. 'The teaching style is tailored well.  It is adjusted based on my requirements and turns out to be really useful.  It seems I am beginning to speak English directly without pre-translating in my mind.'
  2. 'I would like to highlight my great appreciation for the teacher’s patience, professionalism and correctness.  I feel great progress in speech and my fear of speaking English in front of my bosses is decreasing.  I am very pleased.'
  3. 'Before I started 1:1 lessons, I couldn’t get beyond a band 5.5 in IELTS, despite sitting the exam many times.  After studying 1:1, I achieved my goal of securing a band 7 and my desired place at a UK university.'
  4. 'My son studied 1:1 to prepare for entrance interviews at several top UK private schools. He was not confident in this situation at all.  I was delighted that his 1:1 course gave him the confidence to present articulately and he was offered a place in all our top preferences.'
