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 and is currently being done online via Zoom.
