The Personal English Trainer Advantage

Benefits of taking private lessons

Working with 'me', your Personal English Trainer, you will enjoy the advantage of a customized course of study, highly personalized fun and stimulating lessons, the flexibility to Pay-as-you-Go, NO registration fees, and NO expensive proprietary textbooks.

Your lesson will focus on 'your' learning needs, and progress at 'your' learning speed.

I will maximize the effectiveness of your lesson time by maximizing your speaking time. I will improve your weak points while allowing  your strong areas to flourish.

The Personal English Training System

Personal English Training lesson system is designed to encourage you to study.  One of the biggest reasons why students fail to progress is lack of frequency using the language.  Taking lessons regularly and frequently establishes good practice and results in sustained development of your English.

It is common for eikaiwa students to cancel or postpone lessons during their course, and then rush to use up all their lessons near the deadline of their lesson contract. This is NOT efficient, it is a poor way to learn, and it is a waste of students money.

At Personal English Training, subscribe to the monthly membership plan which suits your schedule. The Membership plan is called myStudyClub. There are different levels of membership available to suit your study needs (myStudyClub LIGHT, myStudyClub SILVER, myStudyClub GOLD, myStudyClub PAIR).  Lessons included in the membership plans are used each month and cannot be carried over to the next month.  You can of course change your study plan before the end of each month to accommodate changes in your schedule.  If you want to take additional lessons during the month, you can book extra lessons at a discounted rate with your personal discount code.

To maintain a strong relationship with each student, the number of students I work with is limited to 10-20 students. Only  a limited number of places are available for students in myStudyClub 

 to let me focus on the individual learning needs and progress of each student, and provide me enough preparation time for each students lessons.

By having the same instructor for each lesson, I can quickly learn your strengths and weaknesses, I will be aware of your previous study record, thereby knowing what you have learned and where you are still making mistakes.

Limiting the number of students also allows more flexibility for students when choosing a date/time to book their lesson.

At some eikaiwa instructors are often overworked and burnt out, teaching up to 12 lessons per day with 12 different students.  Furthermore, students may have a different teacher almost every lesson which prevents continuity and familiarity.

At Personal English Training, I try to keep it ....well.... personal.
