Why learn the English Language?
English is the most used and spoken language around the world. At least one out of 5 people can speak or understand it; 1 Billion are people who speak English as a second language, and it is the official language of 57 countries around the world.
By speaking English, you instantly increase your ability to communicate with the majority of people from different countries and continents. It is the main language used in business, science, and technology - not to mention the media.
Learning English will increase your educational opportunities, improve your career, and open up a world of possibilities that may otherwise be unavailable. Not to mention the opportunity to enjoy a wealth of literature, cinema, music, and other art forms, in the language they were created in.
If you hope to study abroad, English is essential. It is likely that the school, college, or university will require you to take an official English examination as part of the entry requirements. You may also choose to take an official English test as the certificate will be helpful for future job applications or promotions.
Teachers will take the time to assess your starting level then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives in the four main skills - reading, writing, listening and speaking. You will focus on your individual need and make rapid progress.
Classes will also cover any specific area of interest or need that you may have. Often, students may have a requirement for English for Business, English for Academic Purposes, English Official Exam Preparation, or a range of other areas of need and interest.
Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push you in areas that you are already comfortable with, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
Does it matter if I have an ESL tutor near me?
No, it does not. In fact, by using an online tutor for EFL lessons, you may be saving a lot of money because you do not have to travel to the UK, Canada, USA, or any other English-speaking country in order to learn with a real native English speaking teacher!
Why choose Spires’ Tutoring?
Spires offers online face-to-face tutorials in the style of Oxford and Cambridge universities. It has been proven that studying this way can have much faster results than in group lessons. You will learn what you need when you need it and will notice progress in a short space of time.
We have a lot of repeat students and you can check out the high star ratings our clients leave.
We only hire 4% of the teachers that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA, and around the world. All have a Ph.D., MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.
Because tutors set their rates via an auction system, our prices are more competitive than many other companies. Our online classroom is stable and fun to learn through. It has an interactive whiteboard and students can access recordings of classes at any time. They use webcam video chat when being taught.
Spires deals with all of the matching, scheduling, payments, and administration, we take all of the hassles out of organising support and allow students to focus purely on learning.

Who will my tutor be?
This is all up to you. You have a huge choice on our platform to help find language tutors for your needs.

We currently have over 100 English language tutors online with academic and professional experience with students at all levels of The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). All language tutors are fully qualified to be an English tutor for foreign students
What qualifications do tutors need?
All of our tutors must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree and have ESL tutoring experience. Most have higher degrees on top of that, in specialized areas such as Master’s degrees or PhDs. All of our tutors are DBS checked or have had equivalent background checks.
English language tuition is priced according to level:
1. School level: For Primary school, Secondary and Higher Education prices start at £25/hr
2. University level: For Undergraduate and Postgraduate tuition, prices start at £35/hr
3. Professional level: For Chartered Qualifications and Admissions Test tutoring, prices start at £45/hr.
The average price per hour ranges based on the tutors’ experience, expertise and student’s level.
The average language tutor price per hr is £40/$53/€45 per lesson depending on a teachers’ experience and students’ level of study. This is higher than other areas in the UK due to the increased living costs that come with London life.
Once you’ve used the Find A Tutor feature to find your perfect online English language tutor, you can contact them with any questions you have and can meet in advance. A tutor should respond to you within 24 hrs with an answer and the hours they are available. If your selected ESL tutor isn’t able to fit you into their schedule we will recommend others that fit your specifications. After a tutor replies, you can then schedule a free webcam meet and if you are satisfied you can go ahead and schedule your first language lesson!
