What else can you expect from our English tutors?

Love Learning

Our tutors love English and love to teach it! They’re excited by teaching how to write with a sense of purpose, and to deliver an insightful presentation with confidence.

Academic Progress

From mother-tongue English students in local schools to those adjusting to an English-based curriculum, we also support the TOEFL/ IELTS/ SAT/ ACT and refining writing skills.

Learning tailored to needs & personality

Whether it be skills, knowledge or confidence, our tutors are able to quickly identify areas that need to be focused on to make a lasting change! They don’t just stick to one single teaching method, but draw on extensive experience of varied approaches to best suit individual students. Our tutors can also provide specialised support related to Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, among others.

Peace of mind

All our tutors are background checked, highly-trained and have years of teaching experience. Every tutor is as unique as your child and we pride ourselves on paying great attention to match students with the best possible tutor for their needs and personality.

I found the staff to be considerate and responsive to our needs. We needed a specific kind of teacher and they sent us one that was better than we could have hoped for. I'm grateful and relieved!

Hello, I wanted to let you know that my son's IB results came back today and he did very well in maths. Andrea Ludwig has been his tutor for the last two years, and helped bring him from an "I hate maths" perspective to one where he has been happy to engage again in a subject he used to love.Andrea was not only good with him regarding the subject itself, but also took care of him psychologically. She understood when he needed to be pushed, when he needed just to drill and practice, and when he needed to rest. My son enjoyed his time with her (even if he was always late), and they had a good working relationship.Thank you for an excellent service.

We have always been impressed with the service that TutorsPlus provides. Our daughter is at 4P in 2019 in a bi-lingual school in Geneva. We initially contacted them summer of 2018 before school started to give our daughter the opportunity to practice French and build confidence. She gained confidence from these sessions and have progressed a lot at 4P. This year, she has her exam for "Epreuves Cantonales' and when we asked her last week what areas she needs to improve - which is grammar, we immediately contacted TutorsPlus and they were able to coordinate our Tutor - Anais, who always have given excellent sessions and built a good rapport with our daughter. She is very professional and comes with materials based on the areas the child needs to work on. We highly recommend TutorsPlus!

My husband and I had the pleasure of speaking with Alex at TutorsPlus for an Educational Advisory/School Choice session. It was an invaluable conversation, that gave us great insights and perspective to inform our school choice. We have lived in Geneva for many years, yet despite having a lot of input from friends & word of mouth, we found the school decisions to be challenging to navigate. This session and the perspective & insights Alex offered were absolutely invaluable. We are now confident in our school decision for our children.I would highly recommend this service to anyone! If you are musing over school options for your children - absolutely speak with TutorsPlus. Thank you Alex & the TutorsPlus team!

What can I say about TutorsPlus and the invaluable advice we received from Alex and her team. They provided honest, real and experienced advice that helped us make important educational decisions for both our girls at a critical time for our family. I can honestly say our move to Switzerland was made so much easier based on the service we received from TutorsPlus. Thank you TutorsPlus I cannot recommend you guys enough.

English as an Additional Language (EAL)

A high percentage of international students are studying in a language that is not their mother tongue. Tutoring for EAL focuses on recognising and using high-frequency English words for academic purposes to accelerate a student’s ability to communicate their ideas clearly and purposefully. EAL support is not only for English as a subject, but can help all subjects being taught in English through the learning of key words and writing styles related to anything from a History essay to a Science lab report.

Mother Tongue English Programme

Many English mother tongue students study in the local system and their use of English is restricted to the home environment. However, using English in an academic setting requires a different vocabulary and a high level of written fluency. Mother Tongue English tutoring is perfect for native-English speakers who are making the switch from the local system to an English-language curriculum, or for those who would like to maintain a high level of English, especially in writing, while remaining in the local system.

English Literature

Our expert English Literature tutors guide students through the key elements to consider when critiquing a text, as well as help plan an insightful and clearly-structured response. Finding that solid “thesis statement” and strong “topic sentences” is a complex process that takes many of us years of practice.

English Language

One of the great challenges for students is adapting their choice of words, register and text structure to suit a particular audience or purpose. Our tutors draw awareness to these differences and encourage experimenting with words, voice and tone to create fantastic articles, stories, reports, and speeches.

English Homework Help

Often students are more than capable when it comes to homework and assignments, but simply struggle to get started. Our tutors provide a structure and routine for doing homework as well as guiding them through the initial brainstorm and planning process needed for their assignments. Most importantly, we want students to become independent learners and will help them build the skills and self-knowledge to manage their homework on their own.

We have a range of tutors who are experts in bringing students with special education needs – from Dyslexia & Dysgraphia to ADD/ADHD or Autistic Spectrum Disorder – to a higher level of communicative competence.
