Online English Tutoring FAQs

Why Study English?

Amongst subjects like Maths, History, and Sciences, why single out English? Even if you’re already fluent in the language, studying English at university level remains immensely popular globally. Delving into English challenges your cognitive abilities, taking you out of your comfort zone. Students hone their analytical and communication skills, tools that are invaluable in the real world. Beyond mere technical expertise, it’s these critical thinking abilities that set leaders apart.

The employability of English graduates is commendable. The surge in global trade, international legal frameworks, and export-centric economic models have made their skills more in demand than ever. Fields like journalism, digital marketing, and politics often demand English degrees. Furthermore, it’s a robust foundation for further studies in business, law, and marketing. Naturally, teaching English, especially at the GCSE and A-Level, remains a sought-after profession amongst graduates.
