Online specialised English language coaching for academic purposes

One-to-one lessons offer the learner a programme which is designed precisely to their own unique requirements. In this way, the learner makes the maximum possible progress because the teacher is able to focus on their needs and their personal learning style in each lesson. Throughout the day, lessons can be supplemented with self-study. This helps consolidate the work done during lessons. Tutors set self-study exercises and give students direction and guidance to maximise the consolidation periods between lessons.

Individually focused learning

The learner achieves rapid progress as the content focuses on the aspects of training needed the most. Tutorials provide an opportunity for repetition of material in as much detail as required which provides the learner with an in-depth understanding of the lesson content.

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

Progress tracking and assessment

Learners take an entry level test prior to the start of the course so the tutor can identify the areas which the learner most needs to work on. The learner also completes a detailed Needs Analysis with a tutor who will adapt the course to ensure the professional or academic goals are met.  Progress is constantly monitored in weekly tests to track progress. Tutors set new goals each week to make sure the learner remains motivated and challenged throughout the course.

Areas of specialisation

One-to-one lessons allow students to develop their English in a specific area related to their academic area of interest.
