English Language Tuition Programmes

The Tutorial
OISE’s Tutorial™ Programme engages students in one-to-one situations with experienced tutors. This allows the learner to focus on their individual interests and ambitions so that it is both relevant and meaningful at all times. This leads to accelerated learning and increased confidence in a range of professional or academic situations. Learners are not restricted to one tutor but have 3 or 4 specialist teachers throughout the day so that they are exposed to a wide range of teaching styles, regional accents and specialist knowledge. The teacher's focus is exclusively on the individual participant. The tutorial can consist of 15, 20, 25 or 30 hours of tuition per week. 
The Tutorial course can be combined with lessons in small groups on The Collaborative Programme, allowing the learner to also benefit from peer discussion, social interaction and presentation skills.   

The Collaborative Programme
The Collaborative Programme is an excellent way for students to develop their confidence and performance skills in English. Students are placed in small classes of 6 participants in the morning and 4 in the afternoon with learners of a similar age, level of English and professional or academic background. This allows students to build a quick rapport with their tutors and classmates permitting a comfortable learning environment. Experienced tutors create unique lesson plans to push and challenge students and ensure consistent progress is made. This allows students to achieve the best possible results in the given timeframe.

The daily timetable is designed to expose students to a range of skills and methodology necessary in the professional or academic world. The programme comprises 31.15 hours of tuition per week and the two different class sizes provide a stimulating dynamic to the day. The overall focus is on communication and presentation skills so that students leave the course feeling both more confident and empowered on return to their workplace or study environment. The Collaborative Programme can be combined with Tutorial sessions to further polish the student’s language.  

Passing the IELTS, or International English Language Test System, is now a requirement for entry into university in the UK as well as many other countries that use English as their primary language.
