Overview of 1:1 tuition

My Language Lab have been specialists in 1:1 tuition since 2015. Our students have always achieved better results this way as classes are highly personalised, from the initial assessment right through to reaching your language objectives.

1:1 lessons are ideal for students who need more individual attention. They're a great complement to students who are already participating in group classes, such as at school, but need to supplement their learning with a tutor who can fill in their knowledge gaps and help make sense of areas where they struggle. This could be with exam preparation, verbs and grammar, formulating longer sentences or speaking skills.

Private tuition allows for students to be corrected when they make mistakes, have someone to practise conversation with and not feel embarrassed or shy when asking questions. It fosters a closer informal relationship with the teacher so that the student feels more confident in their subject. Ultimately, students are more engaged and can achieve results in a shorter timescale.

Students will study all core modules of reading, writing, speaking and listening with special emphasis placed on grammar, verb tenses and vocabulary.

Our tuition classes focus on the syllabus requirements of that particular exam board. Our tutors have a sound knowledge of the module guidelines and grade boundaries. Examinations and assessments are susceptible to changing frameworks and so parents and pupils will have peace of mind that we are up to date with these changes. We have an extensive library of past examination papers, mark schemes, transcripts, listening exams and assessment resources for students, which can be used well before the run-up to exams to maximise students’ performance.

For GCSE and A level students, we start revising exam techniques as early as possible so students are familiar with the question format for each paper and what is expected from them by the examiners. Our lessons are designed to help students plug knowledge gaps, revise and apply proven exam techniques and improve their overall confidence to be exam ready.  

Most lessons will follow the following format:

1. Lesson recap – from last week’s class in case there are any follow-up questions
2. Syllabus topic work – we’ll study a topic on the syllabus covering key vocabulary, useful verbs, model Q&A’s and how best to revise these.
3. Grammar and verbs – we’ll always study these components during every lesson
4. Past exam paper practice – we’ll study past papers and exam techniques to consolidate revision strategies and maximise grades
5. Homework – there will be homework most weeks and students will be given access to the lesson resources, handouts and message board corrections made in class.

I got 2 A*s and an A!! The A*s are in Economics and History and the A was in Spanish. Thanks so much for all your help, I really don’t think I could’ve achieved this grade without you. Thanks, Hatty
