Individual tutorials

The individual tutorials give you the flexibility to concentrate on the skills you need most. The most popular are the speaking and writing components. For the speaking component you will simulate a full oral exam and then be given feedback. For the writing component you can produce up to 4 pieces of writing for one hour of individual tuition. These have to be sent to the teacher before the individual session so that the teacher can give you valuable feedback on the writing produced. Other skills can be covered if requested.

  • Extra hours of individual tuition can be added at the special discounted price of Euro 60 per hour
