Our one-to-one tuition caters for those who require more flexibility with their learning.

Whether you have specific learning goals, require a flexible timetable or just want to be able to work at your own pace, we can help arrange a private language tutor for you.

We deliver high quality, personal teaching tailored to your needs. This can be delivered at your convenience in our offices at 180 Waterloo Place, on campus at the University of Manchester or as a distance learning course over Skype.
