ENGLISH TUTORS

A good command of the English language is essential for everyday life here in the UK. Regardless of the career path your child may choose, the ability to communicate ideas in an intelligent way is invaluable. Particularly in the earlier years of English study it is of great importance to keep on top of spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary.

Our English tutors are here to gently remind your child of the spelling rules, to share their favourite words to make descriptive writing come alive, and to inspire your child to take their understanding of texts to the next level.
