PRIVATE: One-on-One

LEO: Learn English Online or F2F: Face-to-Face.  For intimate and intensive sessions, learn so much more with your own private Specialist.

Though many students prefer group classes because it is more engaging and fun, there are so many benefits to having a private class:

  1. Tailor-fit Learning.  In a private class, we will teach you what you need (and want) to learn at your own pace.  You do not need to go over modules that you already know as you would in a group class.  If you are weaker in grammar and writing, we will definitely concentrate on this.  If you want to have more speaking, we can focus on this as well.  In a group class, you have to follow the modules
    designed for the group.
  2. Accelerated Learning. One session (two hours) of private class can mean one week of group classes.  Because the focus is on you only, you will be able to learn the lessons more quickly.  Your Specialist will make sure that you have assignments to keep you learning as much and as fast as possible.  What you can learn in one year of group class can be equal to just one month of private classes.
  3. Comfort and Convenience.  In a private class, we follow your schedule or your availability, whereas in a group class, you have to follow the group’s schedule.  That means that you get to enjoy the comfort and convenience of studying on your own time, place, and pace.
  4. More Savings.  When you take group classes, you actually have to enroll many times.  Why?  That’s because you have to keep learning and learning along with a group, which could be a little slower.  When you are in a private class, you learn fast according to what you need.

We definitely recommend a combination of group and private classes so that you get the benefits of both.  A group class is definitely engaging and dynamic, but a private class can get you farther more quickly.
