Home tuition is a unique opportunity to live and learn in the home of a professional English teacher, benefiting from one-to-one personalised lessons in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

What is home tuition?

On a home tuition course, you live and learn at the home of your teacher. In the morning you study and in the afternoon and evenings you take part in fun and engaging activities with your teacher.

Our course fees are inclusive of tuition, accommodation in a private bedroom, meals at the teacher’s house, study materials, local excursions and insurance, making home tuition great value for money.

Homelingua Advanced Learning System

personalisecourse-blackPersonalised course based on your study goals

One of the biggest advantages of a home tuition course is its great flexibility. In the one-to-one setting, your teacher will personalise the level and topics of the lessons according to your own needs and interests. Our Homelingua teachers will focus on making sure your personalised course meets all your study goals and academic needs.  With Homelingua home tuition you can expect to enjoy a relaxed, friendly atmosphere becoming a part of the teacher’s family. Before starting their course, students complete a placement test and we ask students about their study goals, academic needs and interests. Our Homelingua teacher will contact you before the course starts and you can let them know whether there are any areas you wish to focus on during their course.

qualifiedteachers-blackQualified and professional teachers

We only choose qualified and professional teachers to teach our range of Bucksmore Homelingua courses. We only work with teachers that have an English teaching qualification such as CELTA from the University of Cambridge or TESOL from Trinity College London and fully qualified school teachers (PGCE). Our teachers come from various backgrounds and specialisms such as finance, business, law, medical and aviation. Our teachers are fully inspected and regularly observed by the Bucksmore Homelingua academic team.

You can expect to make faster progress on a Bucksmore Homelingua one-to-one English home tuition course than on a group course in a language school. As you are living in the home of your teacher, you also have the advantage of being totally immersed in the language outside of lesson times which means you can use the English that you have practised during the lesson.

managedcourses-blackManaged courses and progress monitoring

The Bucksmore Homelingua Director of Studies monitors all students and courses ensuring that the maximum progress is made by the student. He will contact students at the beginning of the course to make sure everything is satisfactory and also send an end of course satisfaction survey. Your Homelingua teacher will complete a personalised progress report, giving feedback on your progress as well as areas for improvement.

A Typical Teacher’s Home

Our teachers live in different kinds of homes, some in cities and some in the countryside, but you will always have a room for yourself. It is also possible to request a private bathroom too. If you have special dietary requirements such as a halal or vegetarian diet, please let us know.

Your bedroom includes an area for private study so you have your own space in the family home. You will take part in all the family meals and the great home cooking is one of the many hidden joys of a home tuition programme. Many students like to cook a meal of their own for the family to share the culinary experience.

Many of our teachers are school teachers, and many have previously been successful business men and women. They have beautiful family homes in fantastic locations all across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Every family home is inspected by the Bucksmore Homelingua team to make sure it meets our high standards.
