Reasons why 1-2-1 learning might just be for you


Here at The Language Guru, we know there is no “one size fits all” method of teaching. Some students enjoy being in a class with others, getting to meet new people and learning languages together. Others find that a “one to one” experience suits them better.

Let’s look at the benefits of taking private tuition with The Language Guru:

We can create bespoke learning just for you

This is a huge bonus as lesson plans are created for each individual and take into account your learning pace, level of previous language experience, and personal capability.

Sometimes a person can find it difficult to keep up with the rest of the class or need to focus more on one or more issues which might mean the fall behind other students. With 1-2-1 language learning, The Language Guru tutors take this into account and will adjust the pace, focus and goals of a lesson depending on the needs and abilities of each person to make the most of every moment. If you have a learning disorder, this will be especially useful for you.

Also, we choose the right tutor for you, your skills and your temperament. You’re able to book sessions around your family time, work, travel, or other school schedules. If you choose to use Skype, you can be more or less anywhere in the world and in any setting. We don’t mind if you’re wearing your pyjamas, sit on the bed, in the garden or half-way up a mountain. We’ve seen it all!

The focus is on you

100% of your tutor’s time and attention is on you, not anyone else. That’s precious and means you get the very best. You can ask any question you like, check your understanding, practice pronunciation, and generally benefit from the real 1-2-1 experience.

If you’re normally a shy person, your Language Guru sessions will generally make you more confident as your skills and capability grows.

The focus is on you … to perform!

There’s nowhere to hide as if in a classroom setting, as your tutor will know if you’re not doing your homework, reading or practical exercises in between sessions. Having said that, s/he will be able to immediately spot where there are issues and be able to help and support you. Private tuition tends to be less formalised as you build a strong bond between student and tutor.
