- One-to-one lessons from an experienced English language exam trainer
- A course delivered just for the student’s needs, at their precise level and at the optimal speed
- Free online video English lessons included in the standard course fee.

Enrol For This Course
Students have two afternoons or evenings a week where their host tutor will accompany them on a local excursion or activity, taking into account the student’s interests and preferences.
Outside of these times, students are welcome to relax in their host tutor family’s home – perhaps catching up on emails or other work – or take the time to explore the area independently. Host tutors will provide full support with using public transport, and other expert guidance about what is available to see and do where they live.
As part of our course application service for international students, we issue all documentation required and have it couriered directly to you, for a small fee.
If, for whatever reason, your visa is refused, we guarantee a full refund of your entire course fee.
Please contact us if you have any questions about applying for a Short Term Study visa to study with InTuition.
We have a number of host tutors with a wealth of experience and training in teaching students with disabilities, including learning, visual and auditory.
For students that are not fully independent, we are happy to arrange for an accompanying carer to join them on their programme for a special discounted rate. Many carers choose to take an English course during their stay, too, in which case our standard 2:1 fees apply.
We have a number of teachers in the UK and Ireland that have wheelchair-accessible homes
For us to best serve the student and offer a unique learning and cultural experience it is fundamental that we receive full details of the student’s learning and motor skills during the enquiry process.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our Placement Manager, Valia. She has extensive experience in coordinating Paralympic and Special Olympic athletes’ accommodation and access requirements.
Based on the information you provide about your reasons for studying, your priorities and interests, our Placements team carefully select the right tutor for you. They then send you a very detailed Host Tutor Profile, outlining the teacher’s background, expertise, home, family and location. You choose whether to accept their recommendation or not – you’re always 100% in charge.
