Offering help to learn/ improve English in south of Spain or Online

According to academic research, linguists have demonstrated that there is not one single best method for everyone in all contexts, and that no one teaching method is inherently superior to the others. Also, it is not always possible – or appropriate – to apply the same methodology to all learners, who have different objectives, environments and learning needs.

Lessons with a Private English Tutor

For everyday life in the UK, you’ll need to have a good grasp of the English language. It’s useful for interacting with people in school, work, and anywhere else you may find yourself. There are three main aspects of language: reading, writing and speaking. Do you need to attend a language school? Why not? A private tutor is even more effective as their lessons are tailored to you. You might have come across free English lessons or English lessons online to help you study the language. However, the most effective method is to have your own dedicated private English tutor.

The English Language: The Difficulty Faced by Current Generations

It’s no secret that a lot of the younger generation struggle with the English language and reading, writing, and speaking it. Language specialists have been focusing on the problem of spelling in the modern age and text speak. With so much media influence from across the pond, it can sometimes also be tricky to know what’s British English and what’s American English and how and when you can use each. The second reason that the level is going down is because that English, like many other languages, has a number of complicated concepts including personal pronouns, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions, verbs, the active and passive voice, conjugations (present simple, past continuous, present perfect, future, etc.), spelling, grammar, writing, etc. A lot of the younger generation are used to typing out messages online and on their phones, where particular grammatical rules aren’t required or expected. Similarly, with spellcheck available every time you write something on your computer or phone, more and more people are unfamiliar with how to correctly spell certain words. While those in primary schools and secondary schools are tested on spelling, once they get to university and start their first jobs, spelling rarely gets tested. Even those who were regularly tested on spelling and grammar as they were growing up will start to struggle with it when they no longer have to rely on their own knowledge. Of course, there's no need for alarm. English private tutorials are there to help you with any aspect of the language you're struggling with. There are also tutors that can help those speaking English as a foreign language. Whether you need to learn English for a Cambridge exam or need business English for your career, tutors can teach you differently to the way you'd learn in the classroom. In fact, they can focus on any aspect of the language you want, be it pronunciation, speaking with confidence, writing an essay, achieving fluency, or just help with some English homework.

The Importance of Being Able to Write Well in English

The ERASMUS programme has helped plenty of students from the UK to live and study in other European countries. It's also helped so many British people to learn a foreign language. Of course, this can sometimes come at the detriment of your own mother tongue. If you feel that your own English has gotten a bit rusty, you can always brush up on it with the help of private tutorials. Your English will need to be good if you’re working in an international English-speaking market. With so much text being created in the form of text messages, emails, and websites, being able to spell correctly has never been more important. This is where your private English tutor can help. You can’t take your English for granted! Quite the opposite. You need to regularly work on it. How can you attend university classes and get a degree if you can’t really write in the English language?

The Perfect Solution for English Lessons

With so many other things to learn at GCSE and A Level, the elementary aspects of a language can often fall by the wayside. A private tutor can help you to improve your English. In fact, they can help you improve your writing, spelling, and speaking. Having a good level in English will be an advantage in almost every field of work. That said, it’s also useful for finding work. Current recruiters are starting to look more closely at candidates’ spelling and writing skills. How could you hire someone who made dozens of spelling mistakes on their CV? You should be aware that you can perfect your spelling and writing with a private tutor. Thanks to tailored lessons, the student can go back over anything they’re struggling with, even if it’s something as fundamental as spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Speaking Better with English Private Tutorials

Reading and writing aren’t the only aspects of the English language that have taken a hit with the arrival of modern technology. Speaking and listening have also worsened. People speak more like they text. Similarly, reality TV showcases a wide variety of non-standard dialects. There are plenty of reasons for it. So how can you improve your speaking in order to nail that university presentation you have to give? What about your next job interview? A workshop at your job? Getting a teaching qualification? Getting your dream job? There are so many situations where your speaking skills are called upon. So how can you organise a workplace meeting, a conference, or a brainstorming session if your speaking skills aren’t that good? The same is true for everyday life. How can you take part in a political conversation if your speaking leaves a lot to be desired? Hiring an experienced and qualified private tutor is sometimes the best way to go.

Private English Tutors for Improving your English Marks

We’ve looked at longterm solutions. Reading, writing, and speaking are hugely important in everybody’s daily lives. What about the short term? What if your child is struggling in their English lessons at primary school, secondary school, sixth form, or university? English tutorials can help students to get good marks. In primary school, it’s better to be proactive rather than reactive as bad grades can quickly snowball in a child’s formative years when they’re learning all the essentials of their mother tongue. They can’t afford to have gaps in their knowledge of reading and writing. The same is true when they move on to secondary school. As they start studying a plethora of new subjects, their language skills become even more essential. By the time they’re studying their GCSEs and A Levels, they’re expected to be proficient users of their mother tongue in terms of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Students who struggle with language skills will see their grades drop significantly in subjects that heavily rely on them like the humanities. Of course, a private tutor can always step in to give them the extra help they need.

Go Further with Your English

Whether you’re brushing up on your grammar, spelling, conjugations, writing, speaking, or literature skills at primary school, secondary school, or university, a private tutor can help you to fill in any gaps. Whether you do private tutorials, small group classes, or online tutorials, the tutor can tailor their lessons to you. Maybe you’re looking for a tutor to help your kids? From reception to upper sixth, private English tutorials can prepare kids for all the exams and work they’ll have to do throughout school. They can be particularly useful for helping them with their A Levels and getting into a good university. Of course, after their A Levels, their private tutorials don’t necessarily need to stop. Additionally, those who don’t speak English as their mother tongue can also benefit a lot from private English tutorials to help them learn to speak like a native. In any case, our private English tutors know how to tailor their lessons to their students and get the most out of them every hour they spend together. Every learner is different. While some may learn vocabulary quickly in their second language, others may be better speakers of English as a second language and improve quickly after a few hours of tutoring. Either way, each hour you're taught English from a private tutor is an hour you've got the best instruction for you.
