Guided Home-Study | Private Tuition
Online distance learning courses modelled on study at the
University of Oxford.
Students associate guided home-study and online private tuition with lasting understanding of how to use of English for clear and effective communication.
Distance Learning Methodology for Studying English
Elcox distance learning methodologies for teaching English online excel because we model them on the private tuition of undergraduates at the world-class University of Oxford.
Our tutors are Oxford graduates who understand the university’s unsurpassed teaching and apply its methodology to your guided home-study and online private tuition.
We are concerned to provide opportunities for students of English to study safely at home and help to mitigate climate warming.
Guided home-study is certainly student-friendly and secure, and online private tuition is safe and climate-friendly.
Guided home-study delivers private tuition to address your unique learning needs.
Oxford-style teaching provides what you need to study English safely at home.
For each tutorial, you choose a study topic from a list drawn up by your tutor.
Support for each topic consists in free online reading materials and AV lectures.
These open your mind to new ideas by today’s leading thinkers and give new meaning to the seemingly daunting task of developing your present understanding of English.
As you engage at your own pace with this fresh information, you will grasp key issues and arguments to present to your tutor in the form of an academic essay.
Your essay script then is the basis for online dialogue and debate with your tutor, who will identify your misuse of English and explain how you can avoid repeating similar errors.
Your tutor challenges your treatment of the issues inherent in your essay topic and encourages you to defend your argumentation and arrive at common ground.
Benefits of Distance Learning Guided Home-Study
Guided home-study brings English distance learning to life as it strengthens your critical analysis and reasoning and enables you to gain a professional advantage at work.
During a private tutorial, your tutor assesses your written work for content and use of English, teaches on grammar and style, talks about your next assignment, deals with your questions, and when required, shows you necessary exam techniques.
The Importance of Writing
Tutorial writing tasks are central to Oxford-style methodology for several reasons:
- Written work shows how well you understand English and how well you communicate.
- Scripts display your strengths and weaknesses, which your tutor addresses by priority.
- A script informs your tutor of the issues that call for immediate comment and advice.
- Repetitive errors stand out and enable your tutor to explain how you can avoid them.
- Your tutor uses your scripts to teach you proper use of English, grammar, and style.
- Writing brings understanding of the subject and stocks your mind with ideas.
