Individualized one-on-one instruction in the English language begins at the most basic levels and rises to the level of those who have mastered the subject and wish to become the best they can be. Personal tutoring at this level, utilizing "Skype" technology, is a unique approach allowing for immediate response between the student and the tutor. One-on-One learning has shown itself to be the most intense and fastest way to learn a subject, without the distractions so often found in a group setting.
In sessions that are tailored to the specific needs of the student, our tutors utilize the skills of the spoken word, written word, textbooks, homework, classic English stories, and patient pronunciation to help a student become more and more proficient in English. This allows each student to work at his or her own pace without having to compete with others in a classroom for the attention fo the teacher.
The focus in on comprehension and achieving the expected results so that students may advance through the levels and reach their goals.
