At Homelingua we offer home tuition courses to overseas students. Living and learning in the home of a teacher is the most effective way to learn English.

What are the benefits of home tuition for the teacher?

  • Flexible work in the comfort of your own home. You can choose when you want to have students and enjoy the convenience of working in your own home.
  • You can enjoy the independence of being self employed, but with the support of an experienced organisation behind you.
  • No office or school politics and a minimum level of administration.
  • Great job satisfaction. Our teachers get great job satisfaction from working with students on a one to one level.

What are the benefits of home tuition for the student?

  • The teacher is handpicked for the student by a member of the Homelingua team to match the students interests, needs and level of English.
  • The course is tailor-made by the teacher for the student.
  • The student is immersed in the English language inside and outside of lessons.
  • Better value for money than studying in a language school with many students.

What kind of teachers are we looking for?

From our experience our most successful teachers have:

  • A passion for English language teaching.
  • A recognised EFL or PGCE/PGDE qualification.
  • A strong feeling of empathy towards other people.
  • Patience and a willingness to share their home and time with the visiting student.

What do our teachers need to provide?

The requirements vary depending on the course, but as a general rule our teachers need to provide:

  • Comfortable accommodation and meals.
  • One-to-one English language tuition.
  • A warm welcome and integration into the day-to-day life of your family.
  • Picking up and dropping off to and from the nearest station convenient for the student.
