Guided Home-Study| Online Private Tuition
Guided home-study modelled on private tuition at world-first University of Oxford
Elcox alumnae explain how secure guided home-study brings a lasting grasp of English.
Guided home-study includes private online tuition to address your learning needs.
Oxford-style teaching enables you to study English at home, safely and effectively.
You may choose your study topics from a customised list drawn up by your tutor.
Support for each topic consists in free prescribed online reading materials and AV lectures.
These will acquaint you with the latest ideas of today’s leading thinkers and give new purpose to strengthening and extending your present understanding of English.
By engaging with this fresh information at your own pace, you will analyse key issues and construct arguments to present to your tutor as academic essays.
Your essay scripts will be the bases for online dialogues and debates with your tutor, who will evaluate your use of English and explain how to avoid repetitive errors.
Your tutor will question your approach to the issues you have identified and help you defend your ideas and recommendations for the most effective solutions.

Guided home-study brings English learning to life by developing your capacity for critical analysis and reasoning, effective communication, trouble-shooting, and problem-solving.
