Tutoring for international students

Our tutoring sessions are designed to improve the English language and academic study skills of EU and international students whose first language isn’t English. We can help with any English language problem, such as the principles and practice of academic writing at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

What we do

Written language

If you are finding it hard to adapt to writing in the English language, we are here to help! Poor standards of written English can really affect your grades. We will work to improve your understanding of English grammar, spelling, and sentence structure.

Culture and conversation

Moving to a new country can be difficult, especially if you are struggling to understand the culture or make conversation with those around you. We can help increase your conversational vocabulary and understanding of the British academic system to make your time away from home a little easier.

Critical thinking and analytical skills

Critical thinking and analytical skills are a vital part of essay writing. We will help you to understand the language in your course material and provide you with the techniques you need to begin thinking critically and analytically.

Pronunciation and presentation skills

Giving presentations can also be a major part of academic life. If you are struggling with your pronunciation or phrasing we can help. We can also work on structuring and formatting your presentation to make sure you stand out.

Adapting to new surroundings


We know how difficult it can be to adapt to new surroundings. There is so much to learn about your new home and sometimes it can be overwhelming. We are here to help EU and international students get to grips with the higher education system in England and its examination methods. Through identifying strengths and weaknesses in your work, we can draw attention to mistakes and advise on how to correct and avoid them in the future, whether that be in essay writing, presentations, or exam techniques.
