We offer one-to-one tuition with an experienced and qualified English language teacher and sessions can be designed exactly to your individual needs.  These classes take place during the Afternoon Activity Sessions.  Each tuition session lasts 1 hour and you can choose as many sessions as you like.

For all one-to-one sessions, you will be sent a copy or summary of the student's work.  You can book these sessions online when you enrol onto the Summer School.

Below are some examples of subjects these sessions could include - academic writing, grammar, conversation and error correction, creative writing or pronunciation: listening and speaking - but we are happy to discuss any other options, ideas or topics you might have.

Academic writing

Improve your formal academic writing: descriptive, analytical, persuasive and critical essays and reports. This is essential for students who are consideration education in English-speaking countries in the future. The tutor will model examples of good writing and provide practical advice and modelling. Your writing will be marked and clear feedback given.

Grammar

Whenever and however we use English, grammar is important. The tutor will begin with a short needs analysis, then provide custom tuition for any areas of your grammar which needs improvement and development. Your will analyse how English is used in real life, followed by controlled practice then an opportunity to use the language learnt creatively.

Conversation and error correction

English is not just an academic subject that has to be learnt; it is a skill which we need to use in real life - and we learn through practice. Our tutor will prepare a series of conversational tasks and topics to engage you. Throughout the session, your errors will be corrected and suggestions for further improvement will be made at the end of the session.

Creative Writing

Students learn language best when they are able to use it in creative expression. In this session you will be guided through a structured creative writing process in order to create a short fictional piece such as a short story or poem. The tutor will edit and proof-read the writing with the student for a polished final draft.

Pronunciation: listening and speaking

It is critical that you can understand what is said to you and communicate what you say to others clearly. In these sessions, you will first be shown how to identify and tell the difference between certain sounds in English. You will then complete some controlled practice activities with your tutor, before engaging in open conversation with error correction.

Please feel free to contact us by emailing summerschool@stedmundscollege.org if you would like to discuss these sessions in more detail.
