It depends on how much time you have, how motivated you are, and when you need results (or deadlines you need to meet). You may do one lesson per day, one to five lessons per week, one lesson per week, or you may do more than one lesson in one day. Each lesson is one hour. If you can’t decide, we can make suggestions during the trial lesson.

What happens during the trial lesson or the first paid lesson?

  • The tutor will evaluate your English level, discuss your English learning history, your strengths/weaknesses/needs and your objectives. The tutor will already start getting to know your English abilities along with the results of an evaluation you will receive and complete before the trial or first lesson.
  • As the tutor gets to know you better, it is normal for adjustments to be made to customize the lessons for content, method and strategies to better achieve your goals. The tutor is your partner. Your success is our success!

What if I need to cancel a lesson?

If you must cancel a lesson, please email us at least 24 hours before the start of the scheduled lesson. If you fail to do so, then you will lose the lesson and be charged. If you need a refund because you want to stop the lessons, we will consider a refund.

Will my lessons expire?

When you purchase lessons, the lessons are valid for 6 months from the date of purchase. After 6 months, any lesson not completed will be lost. If you need to take a break, go ahead and take a break. But after 6 months you will lose the lessons not completed. So, your motivation is important in achieving your goals!
