Personal training
A personal trainer, in all walks of life, motivates a client by setting goals and providing feedback. In the same way your one-to-one tutors at St. Clare’s help you to make the maximum English Language progress in the shortest possible time.

Focus on your specific language needs
If you have just a week or two to spare, our one-to-one lessons allow you to focus directly on your personal English language development. Over the past year, for example, we have built the confidence and improved the performance of individuals from across the world and supported their professional, academic and personal language needs as follows:

1. Professional language - for business, finance, education, medicine, law
  • the language and strategies for good presentations and negotiations

3. Personal language - for confidence, examinations, travel and leisure
