As well as introducing tutors to work with children, we also arrange private tutoring for adults.
Whether you are retraining and suddenly find you need GCSE biology or A level maths to get onto a course; or you fancy adding a new language to your CV, we can help.
We have highly experienced tutors on our books offering private tutoring for adults in English as an Additional Language (EAL). It can be daunting arriving in a new country, especially when you don’t speak the language as well as you’d like to. We can help you, not only to find the right words, but to find your feet.
A private tutor will tailor their lessons to make sure you don’t just know the right phrases, but you know how things work in your new city. Tutors can help you book tickets for your family to see a show, or to help you make the right impression when you meet new colleagues.
We’ve found it can be convenient for parents to have their own tutor alongside their children and it’s encouraging for children to see their parents learning too!

She gained her CELTA qualification in Spain and during that time worked in Spain and London with people from all over the world.
Now Katie is based in London, she is a private tutor to people who are new to the UK and require an overall improvement in their language to help them with day-to-day things. Katie can also help with preparation for the Life In The UK test.
After her CELTA Katie gained another qualification in Business English and worked with Blue Chip companies such as Ernst & Young, Nissan, tech start-ups, law firms and hedge funds.
She has helped English as an Additional Language students with writing formal emails and presentations, staff appraisals and client pitches.
Supporting a child with English as an Additional Language is a key part of what Katie does. She has worked with many 16-18 year olds in person and via online tutoring.
In particular, they focus on written work and learning vocabulary in order to increase fluency. In addition, they practice techniques required to answer the listening and reading parts. Katie has found that online tuition is greatly beneficial to those wanting to get a head start before moving to the UK.
In 2011 Katie Lane trained in phonetics and elocution. She learnt the physiology of the voice and how sounds are formed. It helped identify specific areas of difficulty for speakers from different regions of the world.
