Our English through Special Interest programmes include 10 hours of One to One English lessons in the home with the teacher and four afternoons of one of the following requested activities: Tennis, Cooking, Jewellery Making, Photography, Cycling, Music, Drama, Art, Design and Architecture. These are just a selection of what we can offer. Please contact us and we may have a teacher for your chosen special interest.
We offer a flexible teaching programme. Students can choose from just 10 to 30+ hours of tuition per week. Lesson timings are flexible, and are to be agreed between the teacher and student. Generally, lessons take place in the morning, which frees up the afternoon and evening for private study and leisure activities, but this of course may be changed with the agreement of teacher and student.
The methods used in any particular class are dictated by the student’s needs and targets, and in one-to-one classes these can be refined further by the student’s own personality and learning style. By combining the professional care and attention that our teachers give to each individual student with appropriate course books and materials we hope to assist each student to achieve these targets. However, in all cases, in addition to the student’s own targets we will also aim to build their confidence and fluency in English by encouraging them to communicate actively with their teacher in and out of lessons.
As with all one-to-one classes, the student’s own needs and learning targets (as expressed at the time of booking and refined in early discussion with the teacher) dictate the syllabus. The course objective is to meet these targets as closely as possible within the time allowed, bearing in mind the initial language level of the student.
