Every one of our English tutors scored a distinction+ for English in high school, has studied at university, passed our intake English exam with distinction, and then completed our tutor training programme with distinction.
First, we assess the student to identify gaps in the fundamentals (what content don’t they know?) and common error types (how are they losing marks?).
Then, we select a mentor from our team of English tutors. It is crucial for a student to ‘like’ their tutor and look forward to the lessons.
The trained tutor comes to the house for high-impact one-on-one lessons where they actually teach the ideas and concepts.
We set structured homework for the student to do in between lessons. When it comes to english, practice is key.
We use practical demonstrations, excursions, and projects to excite the student and pique their interest.
The student sits regular mock tests so that they can practice the skills under exam conditions, and we can monitor progress and increase their confidence.
A student needs to familiarise themselves with the technical requirements of the memorandum in order to excel. We teach test-taking techniques.
We supervise, guide and support the programme to ensure a great result.
We’ve been operating since 1993 and have clocked more than 180,000 hours of one-on-one private tuition. But in that time, we haven’t just been teaching, we’ve been learning as well, and what we have learnt has shaped the business that we are today.
