Who is tuition for?

Our tutors teach learners of any level, from beginner to advanced. Learners must be aged 16 or over.

What will I learn?

It depends on you – our tutors will work with you to establish personal learning goals and lessons will be designed around your needs.

Some clients want to improve their English for business or academic purposes. Others are new to London and want support improving their language skills and discovering the city. Some learners come to us with specific areas they want to develop, such as their vocabulary, listening or confidence when speaking. Our tutors will put their years of experience and expertise into ensuring you achieve your learning goals. They will also explore strategies with you for longer term learning so that your English continues to improve.

Who will be teaching me?

All of our tutors have CELTA (or equivalent) teaching qualifications, specialist tuition training and years of experience. After you contact us, we will match you with the tutor who best suits your needs. Read more about our tutors.

Where and when will lessons take place?

Our tutors are flexible. Lessons will be arranged with you at a mutually convenient time and place.

What is the teaching approach of your tutors?

Future Perfect tutors are all trained in our unique teaching approach. We believe in participatory education, inspired by Brazilian educational philosopher Paulo Friere. The learner is at the centre of the learning process from course planning to assessment. New skills and knowledge is built onto existing knowledge. We work in this way beacause we believe that learning occurs when new concepts are within reach.

In practice, this means our teachers are constantly assessing learners' progress, introducing new language in context and regularly collecting meaningful feedback about the classes. We believe that everyone can be a good language learner. It is our job to provide the opportunity for purposeful practice that will bring success.
