Why choose Spires’ online Linguistics tutoring?

Why study Linguistics?

Linguistics is an academic discipline concerned with the study of language from a scientific perspective. Linguists study aspects of human languages and linguistic utterances, including the design, distribution, acquisition, and use of them. Studying linguistics is a great way to broaden your perspective and understanding of the world we live in. Linguists study the production and dissemination of textual material – written or spoken – as well as ethnographic material such as folktales or rituals.

One reason many people choose linguistics as a major is the social benefits it offers. Linguists are interested in how languages work and what makes them different from one another. This information is relevant to anyone who spends time speaking, reading, or writing in a language other than their native tongue.

What further degrees is Linguistics useful for?

If you have earned a bachelor’s degree in linguistics and want to continue your education along the same path, then a master’s degree in linguistics is a good option. A master’s degree is a great way to continue your education in linguistics and apply what you have learned to career goals, such as teaching in an elementary or high school, or working for a company that does business abroad.

Other degree options include:

  • Masters in Linguistic Data Sciences
  • Masters in Empirical and Theoretical Linguistics (ETHEL)
  • Masters in Applied Linguistics and Text Analytics
  • MSc English Language and Linguistics
  • PhD in Advanced English Studies: Linguistics, Literature and Culture
  • PhD in Applied Linguistics

Linguists who pursue a PhD are typically interested in pursuing research careers that focus on a specific area of study, usually presenting their findings through scholarly publications like journal articles. A student with a Bachelor’s in Linguistics may also pursue further education in teaching, translating or interpretation if they desire to specialize in these areas of study.

What careers can be studying Linguistics lead to?

Linguistics is an excellent degree for people interested in careers involving communication, written expression, and understanding language. To give you a few examples of job titles that a person with Linguistics degrees might find themselves in, there are positions such as:

    • Marketing Executive
    • Technical writer or editor
    • Computer programmer or analyst
    • Information systems manager
    • Paralegal
    • Academic research
    • Public relations officer

What careers can study Linguistics lead to?

  • Translation
  • Interpreting/transcription work
  • Foreign language teacher
  • Lexicographer
  • Publishing copy-editor/proofreader
  • Speech and language therapist
  • Civil Service fast streamer
  • Digital Copywriter
  • Information officer
  • Public librarian

How does Linguistics help with understanding foreign languages?

Research in linguistics has allowed us to better understand how human languages work. Once you understand the mechanisms of human languages and the commonalities between different human languages, you can apply this knowledge to learning any foreign language. Linguistics courses often include specific language instruction, but the goal of linguists is to look at languages from a scientific perspective and develop an understanding of how languages work and why certain aspects are present. It does not matter if you want to learn Chinese, Spanish, or German; a degree in linguistics can help you achieve your language learning goals.

How expert tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point and then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online 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 they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.

Why Choose Spires’ Tutoring?

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 PhD, MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

We have a lot of repeat students, and you can check out the high-star ratings our clients leave. 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 organizing support and allow students to focus purely on learning.

How does Spires’ online tutoring work?

You can find a professional tutor in four easy steps:

  1. Use the Find A Tutor feature to create a post outlining your needs and requirements.
  2. Find your perfect tutor from our wide variety of skilled professors and educators. After filtering your search results using the Find A Tutor feature, you can choose to view the profile of the best choices for your needs. You can then see reviews, star ratings, total hours taught for Spires, and the price per hour.
  3. Have your face-to-face class. This can be done whenever and wherever you are; it’s all online, so neither you nor the tutor needs to travel.
  4. Replay the classes afterwards for any missed information at your own pace and convenience.

Private help is that easy!

Does it matter if the tutor is near me?

No, it doesn’t! It’s all done online whenever and wherever you are. All you have to do is pick your ideal mentor and speak to them to arrange the best time for you to have video lessons. It doesn’t matter at all if they are miles and miles (or kilometres and kilometres) away from you!

Who will my tutor be?

This is all up to you. You have a huge choice. You can look through our member tutor profiles, check student reviews and bids, their qualifications and backgrounds, hourly rates, hours taught, and other subjects they teach. You can even check if they have many repeat students. Then, communicate with your favourites to see if they are right for your needs and learning style. You can have a free video call via webcam, usually over Zoom. Then you pick the person you’d like to help with your studies and schedule your first webcam lesson!

How many Linguistics tutors are available to give private lessons?

We currently have over 11 tutors for Linguistics with academic and professional experience specializing in a wide range of topics from GCSEs to postgraduate support and everything in between.

What qualifications do tutors need?

All of our tutors must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree and have 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.

What is the role of a tutor?

It is their responsibility to guide you to understand the subject you have chosen. Using their expertise in the chosen topic and their teaching experience, they will help you understand, analyze, and apply the content of the lessons at a later date, whether it is at your chosen university, in your career, or in your day-to-day life.

How much does a private Linguistics tutor cost per hour?

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 the student’s level.

How much is a Linguistics tutor per hour in London?

The average tutor price per hour is £40/$53/€45 depending on a teacher’s experience and the student’s level of study. This is higher than in other areas in the UK due to the increased living costs that come with London life.

What happens when I send a message?

Once you’ve used the Find A Tutor feature to find your perfect Linguistics tutor, you can contact them with any questions you might have and even meet in advance. A tutor should respond to you within 24 hours with an answer and their available hours. If your selected teacher 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 meeting, and if you are satisfied, you can go ahead and schedule your first lesson!

Can I arrange Linguistics revision help?

Yes, you can! Our huge database of Linguistics teachers offers a wide range of specializations and expertise.

Is ‘Linguistics tutor wanted’ a suitable title for my advert?

Although this may not be the worst opening line, we strongly recommend that you give it some more thought. Consider what you need and what you are trying to achieve. Think about your level and what you need to improve on. Whether you need help with GCSE-level guidance or help with a university admissions letter, put it in your advert. For example, a great opening for many of our clients could be: ‘Linguistics support required to help with Oxbridge Admissions Test’. The more details, the better the match!

How can I help my child learn Linguistics?

The first step to learning Linguistics is to pick up a book! A tutor can provide the right guidance, material, and support to learn more efficiently and effectively with clear goals, objectives, and noticeable results. Finding the perfect tutor with Spires is the right step in ensuring your child engages with Linguistics!
