    • Language and level. Please tell us something about your existing knowledge, referring to our Guide to Your Level.
    • Days and times when you are available for an online weekly class.
    • A contact telephone number.

    We will then check to see if there are places in a suitable class and get back to you.

    If there is a potential space, the next step is for the tutor to contact you for an informal chat by phone or online.

    After that if you wish to join the class, we ask you to complete an enrolment form and pay for the remaining classes in the current half term. To get an idea of the amount you will need to pay please refer to our current fee rates and term dates or contact us for assistance.

  • Private tuition

    Upated 2nd July 2023

    Are Private Classes Only Available to Individuals?

    Private classes can be arranged for 1 person or more and are priced according to the number in the class. From September 2023 1-1 classes will be £33 per hour. Please contact us for prices for larger groups.


    When Are They Available?

    Private lessons are offered when the tutor has availability. There are usually fewer slots available in the evenings, as many tutors teach group classes at that time. It is unlikely that tutors would be free at weekends.


    Is There is a Minimum Number of Classes that Must be Booked?

    We ask for an initial booking of 3 hours private classes and usually after that students pay in blocks of at least 3 hours.


    Where are these Classes Held?

    1-1 or 2-1 classes would normally be held at our office in Paynes Park but occasionally a tutor may be able to go to a student’s house, if mutually convenient.


    Is There Any Reduction if a Series of Lessons is Booked?

    We offer a reduction of £2 off the hourly rate if a series of 10 classes is booked and paid for in advance.


    Is the Student Charged for Cancelling a Class?

    We ask students to give tutors at least 24 hours’ notice if they need to cancel a class.
