Intensive and flexible private English lessons to suit your individual objectives

English Tuition in London

All students studying English in London have different objectives. For some students English language private lessons are the ideal solution to maximise progress.

With English Language private lessons, you receive the dedication of a personal English tutor who will create a programme just for you. When you start studying in London, at the beginning of your private tuition course, we will perform a detailed analysis of your objectives and will obtain regular feedback from you to make sure your objectives are met.

Some students choose to do combine private tuition with one of our group courses (e.g. Prestige English, Executive English etc), so that they spend half the time in a group and half the time in private tuition.

If you wish, you may also choose to take your individual tuition with one or two friends or colleagues - making it a 2:1 or 3:1 course.

  • Course content is entirely flexible to suit you
  • Study with experienced tutors who know how to maximise your progress
Course options
You can choose to study as little or as much as you want. Most of our private tuition students choose to study for between 10-15 hours per week.This flexible approach means that you have control of the intensity of your course and schedule.

Private_tuition2

There is no ‘typical’ private tuition student. You may believe that a group course is not the best solution for you,or you may have limited time available due to a busy career or home life. Students choosing to take private English tuition do so for a number of different reasons, such as:
  • priority focus on specific areas of interest
  • preparation for an important presentation at work
  • increasing confidence in preparation for an English language conference,seminar or meeting
  • increasing overall level of confidence in all aspects of English language
  • wish for tutor to focus 100% on yourown individual objectives

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • significantly improve your performance in priority areas
  • understand your own strengths and identify future areas of focus
  • speak with greater confidence, fluency and accuracy
  • use a greatly increased vocabulary

FAQ

Q. You say that I can begin my class on most Mondays. How does this work if my course starts in the middle of the LSC Stanton term?

A. Many students start their course in the middle of term, and the General English course is designed for students to join the class at any time. Our coursebooks are structured to help students do this, and there is lots of revision. In addition, your teacher will be prepared for this and he / she will be able to tell you the areas of English that you need to give special attention to.

Q. Will the classes be different from my English classes in my own country?

A. That depends on what sort of English lessons you have had in your country!

Our lessons are 100% in English, and they will help you to communicate in English.

Our teachers are trained to bring the best out of you, and to give you lots of opportunities to practise speaking with the whole class and in groups and pairs. While you are doing this, your teacher will go round the class to correct and help each student. You may also do some language games to help you to practise.

Q. Do I really need to study grammar again? I know lots of it already!

A. Yes, you do! We think that it is really important to be able to use the grammar when you are talking or writing, rather than simply do grammar exercises, which are easier. We will give you lots of opportunities to practise spoken grammar to help you to become more fluent and accurate.

Q. How do I study effectively?

A. We take great pride in the quality of our tuition. Our Principal began her career as a LSC Stanton teacher, and several of our more experienced teachers have worked for us for many years.

We believe that a positive classroom atmosphere with plenty of opportunity for communicative practice provides the best environment for learning.  We believe that by giving you lots of variety in class and by giving you plenty of opportunities to practice your English with your classmates, we will help you to maximize your progress.

The LSC Stanton academic methodology is set out below:

-              100% interactive communicative lessons

-              All teachers are qualified to teach English and are carefully selected by the Principal and the Academic Manager

-              We have eight levels of English so you can make faster progress at precisely the right level for you

-              We use up-to-date methods and materials

Much will depend on your attitude towards your studies. If you want to make good progress, LSC Stanton has the teachers and other resources to enable you to do this.

Q. How do I check my progress?

A. You will have revision activities every week and regular progress tests in class. In addition, we have 4 terms per year, and we expect our students to make progress to the next level at the end of every term. At the end of every LSC Stanton term, which typically lasts for 11-12 weeks, we will give you an end of term test. This is designed by LSC Stanton to test all aspects of your English language ability (reading, writing, speaking and listening). Once your teacher has marked your progress test, he / she will give you detailed feedback on how your have progressed, and tell you whether you are ready to progress to the next level.

You will be able to record your progress in the LSC Stanton Learner Diary, and your teacher will help give you advice on which areas you need to focus on, and will write this in your LSC Stanton Learner Diary. You can also speak to your teacher at any time for advice on how to make the best progress.

Q. What do I do if I find my class too difficult or easy?

A. If this happens, please speak to your teacher and explain to him / her what the problem is. They will help you to change level if necessary. If the teacher feels that you should change level, they will speak with the Academic Manager and the teacher of the other level and they will decide f you are ready to do so, and also confirm whether the next level has availability

Q. Will I be able to practise my English outside class?

A. Absolutely! It is really important that you try to do this as much as possible. Try to speak to as many people as possible – classmates, homestay family, people in shops etc. This is good practice, even if they are not English. Please remember that London is a truly international city, so many of the people that you come into contact will have different accents, which makes it fun and challenging to communicate with them! LSC Stanton has an exciting social programme, which is a good way to meet other students, practise English and to enjoy London.
