Our English courses are taught by skilled and experienced teaching staff. Our teachers are experts in motivating the students to develop their skills and confidence. We favour small classes, with an average of 10 students, to ensure teachers can provide the support that they need. Our qualified and experienced teachers ensure that students can master the whole language by improving the ability to use English grammar. We will even make the student’s pronunciation sound more natural and easier to understand.
Students can study using a wide variety of activities including working in pairs or groups. They also use various materials such as CDs, DVDs and computers to help them to learn. Moreover, students have individual tutorials with the tutor who will set personal targets with them.
After each mock exam, students are encouraged to bring in their exams to be reviewed. The collection of exams over the years provides the tutoring service with a number of examples for use in tutoring sessions and to better prepare students for upcoming tests.
Similarly, certain handouts are prepared to help teach students on particular topics. These are accumulated and updated occasionally as needed. Students who are enrolled in tutoring sessions have full access to materials. The cost of these materials is very low because they are provided from time to time over the years when a need arises. Although some investment of time is required to produce them, it is an overhead cost and can be spread out over several years for as long as the handout remains current or useful.
