Language tutoring

Adapting to a new environment like a university can be daunting. For some students, learning and studying mainly in English can make it even more stressful. If you think you’d benefit from individual or small-group support to develop your academic English, language tutoring is for you.

What is language tutoring?

Tutoring is an important part of the university learning process. It helps an individual help themselves and can guide them to a point where they can become an independent learner. Tutoring is a basic strategy for any model of student learning, student guidance, individualisation and monitoring, and is designed to improve a student’s self-esteem and to enable them to achieve their professional goals.

The focus of language tutoring is on improving a student’s language competence in such a way that it positively impacts their academic performance. Language competence has an influence on a student’s reading and writing performance, so by improving your language competence, there’s an immediate effect on the key skills needed to be successful at university.
