Our teachers offer you a prompt and personal service; we aim to introduce you to qualified and experienced teachers within a couple of days; we do not ask for any up-front payments or registration fees; we require our teachers to come to your home to teach, and to fit in with your schedule, which will enable you to get to know them and directly experience the benefits of the high quality tuition that they give.
There are no contracts nor any requirements for a minimum number of lessons. We offer short-term intensive tuition as well as ongoing support, which can continue for many weeks and months. The rhythm and routine for lessons can, and will, evolve to bring the best benefit to the student. Lessons can take place at any time through the week and at week-ends and can continue through the holidays, as families experience the benefits of the high quality tuition and routine. Our tutors will also teach siblings and small family groups, if required, which can prove to be very beneficial and enjoyable for families.
