We provide one-to-one and group English lessons for beginners and intermediate speakers.

Before starting a course of lessons, we always arrange a discussion with you, preferably face-to-face, so we can hear about your objectives and agree on the best way to proceed.


How good does my English need to be?

Lessons are given in English, so you need to be able to have some understanding of spoken English. For beginners, we use the New Headway English Course – Beginners: Student’s Book.

How much do lessons cost?

Prices depend on the exact nature of the tuition, but as a guideline they range from £12 to £20 per hour.

How many lessons are there in a course?

There are no set numbers – it all depends on how many lessons you would like to have. As a general rule, you should think about a minimum of ten to ensure you make significant progress.

When do lessons take place?

For one-to-one lessons, we try to be as flexible as possible to fit in with your work hours etc. If you are studying in a group then the timings will be agreed in advance.

Where do lessons take place?

One-to-one lessons can take place at your address, at Mike Halson’s house in W12 or at other locations such as coffee houses. We also have a venue in Central London close to Trafalgar Square.
