|Celia||Christopher||09 May 2022||English||It was a good class. Christopher is great at teaching information to me even with challenging learning disabilities. He is very open-minded to students' ideas and allows you to explain your thinking even when the idea is off the path of getting the work done. He would then guide you using that idea to make sure you are on the right track to answering questions correctly. Christopher is great for increasing your English analysis skills in a short amount of time.|

Why study English?
As teenagers, it is common to hear our parent(s) drone on about Maths, English, History, Biology and the Sciences (among other things!). But why study English - especially if you already speak it? Well, English is one of the most popular university degrees, or majors, in the world. At all levels, it stretches your mind by forcing you to think and behave in ways that are outside of your comfort zone.
Students are encouraged to use careful thinking and linguistic analysis, and they develop very valuable communication skills. These benefits help prepare for life after school and university, where what sets the most successful people apart is not just technical skills, but critical thinking skills. The ability to identify the patterns and behaviors that shape society is a key for students who hope to be leaders in the future.
What careers can studying English lead to?
English graduates enjoy excellent job prospects thanks to demand driven by growth in worldwide trade, international law and export-led economic development. Journalism, digital marketing, politics, management - there are many top-paying professions that require either a bachelor's or master's degree in English or a closely related field. It is also an ideal undergraduate degree upon which to base further academic studies in law, business, management, and (digital) marketing. Of course, teaching English at GCSE and A Level (High School level) is a popular choice for many graduates.
How can an online English tutor help me?
Our experienced English tutors have all the knowledge and skills necessary to help students develop their own personal skills and improve their understanding of key concepts, topics, and areas of study in English. Their tutoring style will be adapted to your personal needs, ability and preferences. They will support students' academic development, improve their knowledge and boost their marks, grades, qualifications and career prospects.
Interactive English language video lessons are one way of getting help from an English tutor. They involve connecting to Zoom so that you and your tutor can communicate over a webcam.
This is a live virtual class as opposed to recorded classes many organisations offer. It is a bespoke experience. You can connect via any device, arrange times to suit your schedule, and, of course, you do not even have to leave your home.
In a word, no. This is because ALL our English tutors are near you in every city, every country, all the time. All you need is a device with an internet connection. We have English tutors in London, and everywhere else you can think of!
Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your group objectives. Classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable with, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
Who will be my online English tutor?
