Whether your child is aiming for entry into university, or international schools, we can create an IELTS™ exam preparation course to suit your child’s specific needs. Our teachers work hard to ensure the student achieves success and develops their study skills.

On a home tuition course students learn English at the teacher’s home. The English immersion environment means your child becomes more confident in using English and develops their knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary in a natural context. When students learn English at the teacher’s house, not only do they benefit from a personalised course, but they also take part in cultural activities and family life.

Using the Homelingua Advanced Learning System we can deliver results and progress much faster than other study methods.

Personalising the course to your needs

The teacher will assess your child’s level of English and IELTS™ exam technique at the beginning of the course and plan a personalised course. The teacher will focus on language points and skills the student finds difficult and help make the maximum progress possible. Our teachers can also customise the course based on your child’s study goals, interests and hobbies, language needs and other special requests. Our young learner teachers are experienced in looking and teaching children and your child’s safety is our number one priority. For more information read the student safety page.
