The InTuition Experience
Our success rests on students having a first-class experience and achieving their language goals. We achieve this by matching you to the most appropriate host tutor based on you needs, interests and requirements. We know our host tutors well so personally select each one for you.
Once you have accepted our proposal we then work to make your InTuition learning experience a special one.
We look after you
It’s all about you
We pride ourselves on providing each student with a warm and welcoming reception. Students can opt for our Meet and Greet service, being collected at their arrival airport by their host tutor or our professional driver, and host tutors are provided with full information about students’ food, accommodation and study preferences in advance, ensuring a smooth start to each study programme.
- Before you arrive
Students prepare for their course by completing our Pre-Course Planner and sending it to their host tutor before their course starts. Host tutors use this information to ensure they are well-prepared before students begin their programme, meaning progress is possible from day one.
- A personal welcome
Most students arrive for their course on a Sunday afternoon. Our host tutors will quickly make each student feel completely at home. A relaxed and comfortable environment is guaranteed.
- Mid-Course and End of Course review
During each course, host tutors regularly assess progress to ensure that the desired progress is being made. At the end of each course, host tutors provide a full End of Course Report with guidance for future learning.
Our InTuition Vis-a-Vis service allows students to continue their one-to-one lessons online, after they finish their home tuition programme.
- At the end of the course
At the end of each course, students receive an online Certificate of Achievement which can be integrated with LinkedIn to add to a CV.
Language Level Profiler
We build a course around each student, not around a course book. To do this, we analyse each student’s level in the different core skill areas. Using our unique InTuition Language Level Profiler , our host tutor is able to assess strengths and weaknesses and build a personalised course to maximise each student’s progress.
Combining the results of the Language Level Profiler with each student’s own objectives, our host tutors develop a bespoke programme for each student.
How we select our Homestay Tutors
Selecting the right tutors defines our success. Right from one of our team personally interviewing each of our teachers before we register them.
We receive lots of applicants but we only take the best. They need to be qualified in EFL, of course, holding as a minimum either the CELTA certificate from Cambridge University, or the TESOL Certificate from Trinity College London. Their home has to be clean, comfortable and well located.
We induct, train and support them so they understand the InTuition culture and work to our high standards. But most of all they need to be warm, hospitable, interesting people who love welcoming our students into their home!
