Guided Home-Study| Online Private Tuition
We model guided home-study 2020 on private teaching at the University of Oxford.
Elcox alumni say that guided home-study leads to lasting understanding of English.
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 prescribed online reading materials and AV lectures.
These open the mind to the latest ideas of today’s leading thinkers and give new meaning to the demanding task of strengthening your present understanding of English.
Engaging at your own pace with this fresh information, you will analyse key controversies and construct arguments to present to your tutor in the form of an academic essay.
Your essay script is the basis for online dialogue and debate with your tutor, who evaluates your use of English and explains how to eliminate repetitive errors and make progress.
Your tutor questions your approach to issues you have identified in your essay and helps you to defend your ideas and contentions and agree on the best way forward.
Benefits of Guided Home-Study
Guided home-study brings English distance learning to life as it exercises your capacity for critical analysis and reasoning, and enables you to gain a professional advantage at work.
Your tutor assesses your writing for content and use of language, teaches on grammar and style, talks about your next assignment, deals with your questions and, when required, shows you powerful exam techniques.
Your tutor works at your pace to ensure you progress to your full potential.
You develop indispensable learning skills and writing techniques that distinguish you from the normal learner and enable you to stand out from the crowd.
Online private tuition eliminates the risks associated with a packed classroom.
You learn to set prime goals that take you much further than average.
Private tuition allows flexibility, such as combining language study with exam preparation.
Tailored guided home-study enables you to pursue and cultivate your various interests.
This means that guided-home study motivates and rewards your efforts.

The Importance of Writing
Tutorial essays are central to our Oxford-style teaching for several reasons:
- Essay work displays your current ability to communicate distinctly.
- The written word shows your strengths and weaknesses when working in English.
- Your tutor will offer you corrections, comments, and advice to avoid errors.
- Your scripts form bases for instructive and meaningful online private tuition.
- Writing develops a lasting and practical understanding of the current topic.
Preparative courses for public English exams cover the Cambridge B1 to C2 syllabi, three TOLES Legal-English tests, the TOEFL Academic, and the Pearson Academic-English tests.
Alternatively, you can benefit from a study of Professional-English to extend your reading and writing skills, refine your pronunciation, and sharpen your listening.
This enables you to carry out practical research and gather reliable information with which to construct and deliver robust and reasoned argumentation, advice, and proposals.
We also offer several programmes in English with Philosophy for professionals and other advanced learners who wish to strengthen their roles as influential experts and advisors.
Online distance learning with private tuition renders crowded classrooms superfluous.
