"One-to one teaching can encompass the best and the worst aspects of teaching"
Priscilla Osborne, author of Teaching English One to One

Armed with the right teaching techniques and approach, it's possible to overcome the challenges of teaching English one-to-one and for both teacher and student to enjoy the one-to-one teaching experience.

It is common place for all teachers to encounter one-to-one teaching at some stage in their career. However, discussion, support and resources for one-to-one teaching are rarer. Teaching English One to One is a handy and practical book to support teachers successfully plan and prepare for the unique one-to-one teaching situation.

Chapter 1 analyses the differences between one-to-one tuition and group tuition to help you understand the variants in approach.
The next chapter logically guides you through pre-course preparation, with useful tips and questions to ask your student.
Find out how to write a needs analysis based course programme and why this is important for teacher and student throughout the course.

Teaching English One to One contains comprehensive case studies, examples and forms you can use and adapt accordingly. As well as tried and tested teaching techniques for managing students and your teaching time.

With whole chapters on different methods of giving feedback and correcting errors; teaching business English; Homestay teaching and teaching children and teenagers. This handy guide covers every aspect of teaching one-to-one.
