Tutoring for students studying English as a second language

Increase your confidence in English

1:1 and group coaching for non-native speakers and EFL learners (English as a foreign language) who really need extra support to learn English.

Many of our students are those who have recently moved to an English speaking country and are taking school exams, IELTS exams (International Language Testing System), or simply need to boost their language skills for a workplace environment.

Overview of English lessons

Tutoring English as a second language is a highly demanded subject. We help students who really need support, like young people who have just started at an English speaking school and require that extra boost of confidence for GCSE, A level or a University Degree.

Our teaching also extends to adults who need to acquire new English language skills, whether it's for personal development, workplace requirements, or those progressing through language proficiency levels (CEFR A2 - C1) or wanting to take the IELTS exam.

Additionally, we provide tailored solutions for businesses, schools with foreign students, and anyone else seeking specialised training in verbal communication, reading, or essay writing.
