Personal language tuition

Learn to find your way around abroad, buy that holiday home, learn your partner’s native tongue, prepare for exams, or enhance your career!

From buying a house in France to writing a wedding speech to impress your new in-laws, you will have your own reason for learning a new language. What better way than with your very own personal language teacher to support and inspire you? A teacher who may become a real friend.

Are there more than one of you? Do you want to learn with your friend, or your son or your daughter? Our customers include children of all ages, family groups, and groups of friends. We have a group of small children learning Mandarin, for example. We also have a group of sports planners learning Brazilian Portuguese!

Are you looking for help with GCSEs, A Levels, IELTS, other language specific exams, or any special learning requirements? We have qualified teachers with the expertise you need, who can offer one-to-one language tuition across London.

35 + languages to learn

The most commonly requested foreign languages are English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese and Russian. Recently we have seen increased demand for Japanese, Mandarin, Dutch and Swedish. We also have requests for Modern Greek, Arabic, Turkish, Bulgarian, Romanian, Hungarian, Serbian, Norwegian, Polish and many more languages for personal or online language tuition.

Let us find you a tutor!

First, let us know the language you want to learn, your location and any specific requirements. We will ask you your reason for learning, your level and previous experience, as well as where and when you want the tuition to take place – whether it’s in person or online.

During this free consultation, please ask us any questions you may have. It is our role to help you as much as we can.

What happens next?

  • We match your requirements to a suitable teacher.
  • With the teacher lined up, we confirm the first lesson.
  • Your teacher will call you to say ‘hello’.
  • The first lesson takes place!
  • You pay the teacher after the lesson.
  • We contact you to make sure you enjoyed the lesson.
  • You liaise with your personal language tutor for further lessons.

Your choice of time and location

Our first intention will be to find you a teacher who can come to your own home to teach. This is not always convenient so there are other options to consider. You could have your lessons online, at home, at work, at the teacher’s home, in a local cafe or library, or in a public space with quiet zones.

We can find you a teacher to suit most timing requirements. These can include language lessons in the evenings after work, daytimes during the week, early mornings before work, after school time, weekends or in your lunchtime. Tell us your availability and we will do our best to arrange the lessons in your spare time.

Pay as you go

By far the most flexible method of payment for private language lessons is our pay-as-you-go system.

With our pay-as-you-go system, you simply pay the teacher direct electronically, or in cash, at each lesson. It means the following:

  • Relaxed – no need to commit to a course
  • No initial outlay – you pay for what you have
  • Flexible – your teacher needs
  • 24 hours notice of cancellation, that’s all
  • Simple – you deal directly with your teacher
  • Customer service – we are here 9.00am – 5.00pm every week day for assistance and back up, and will answer emails as soon as possible.

If your lessons are going well and you wish to commit to a course then contact us, as you may qualify for a discount. See our language tutor rates for details.

What to expect from a lesson

On your first lesson your new teacher will:

  • Assess your level.
  • Listen carefully to what you want to achieve.
  • Discover your interests and talk a little about themselves.
  • Introduce your chosen language at the level you need.
  • Set you some work to do in your own time.

After the first lesson you can liaise with your teacher for further lessons. Next time he or she will know how to help you progress and gain confidence in the most interesting and effective way.  

A personal language tutor is the best way to gain confidence.
