Why choose us?
We’re a small company with superior quality. We establish personal relationships with all our students. That’s the way learning works best while being fun too. Our classes are one-to-one, face-to-face interactions, not computer exercises. Your class is customized for you: your level, your pace, your questions, your needs.

How do online lessons work?
We do live one-on-one lessons using Skype, a free, easy-to-use program that lets you make voice/video "calls" via the Internet, using your computer and webcam, or your tablet. Your screen will look something like that shown above, for a face-to-face conversation. When you schedule your first class, we'll send you simple instructions.

Scheduling: Instruction is customized to fit your needs and so is scheduling. Each meeting is arranged according to mutually agreeable times. Most people prefer to set up a regular schedule, making changes as necessary for specific dates. Schedule adjustments provide flexibility and are usually confirmed meeting-to-meeting. Rescheduling is permitted with at least 24-hour advance notice.

With personal instruction, we can adapt to your level and focus on just what you want. You can start anytime. We suggest that you contact us so we can discuss your specific needs.

Prices: The cost is $35 per hour for personal instruction.

Payment: For your first lesson, payment is due in advance so that we can reserve your time. After your first appointment, lessons must be purchased in advance in 6-lesson packages (exceptions on a case-by-case basis). We accept payment online via PayPal, so you know it’s safe.

More about Skype
In case you're not already familiar with Skype, it's a video chat program or app that you install on your computer or tablet. It is something Skype like Apple's FaceTime application but you can also do screen sharing, instant messaging and file sharing as part of your interaction. You need a good Internet connection, but the program and its use are free. See

What equipment do I need? You will need a tablet such as an iPad or a computer with a webcam, microphone and speaker or headphones. Most laptops have these built-in, in which case you're all set. You should have a quiet location where you can concentrate.

Most of our customers are not computer experts, so we use computer technology that we’ve found to be effective and easy to use. We want you to be able to connect easily so you can focus on your English right away.
