Lessons are taught by Coriden Francis MA (Oxon).

All lessons take place on Zoom.

Course Features

Small classes

I teach small friendly classes of no more than six children. I can give each child individual attention where required. There is also a real sense of camaraderie as everyone is in the same boat, working towards the same goal. The children make firm friendships too!


Weekly homework forms an essential part of the course. It will usually take about 1-2 hours to complete each week. Children email me their completed assignments and I mark them before the next lesson.

Online Classroom

I teach all lessons online in a secure room in Zoom. Online tuition is a superb way of learning. It offers more flexibility for parents and is less stressful for the pupil. It is a super way of teaching English as I can share and send materials straightaway.


The cost of group tuition is almost half that of one-to-one tuition with me. It’s an excellent investment in your child’s future.
