Connect with tutors in Cork offering Leaving Cert English and Degree level English support

English can be considered a universal language and thus a crucial language to master. Why is that?  Well, English is the second largest native tongue and is in the top first spoken language in the world alongside Mandarin, Arabic, French and Spanish. Another key data is that 70 nations count English as an official language and teach it from pre-school. And, a detail far from insignificant, especially if you might plan to follow a career in Ireland or abroad in geopolitics, interpretation, public relations, international commerce, science, research, education or artistic matters (almost anything actually!) is that English is one of the official languages of the UNO, WTO, WHO and the Unesco!

Studying English for academic purposes is fundamentally what drives people to book a lesson with a private tutor. It does help. It is an investment that worth it because it profoundly brightens your future and opens new doors. It helps you grasp more job opportunities. Whether you are looking for support for primary school level, high-school level or in order to deepen your knowledge because you are struggling in college, choosing the option of private tutoring will help you get a better grade, pass an exam or simply improve your performance. Choosing private tutoring is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your future.

One really cool thing about English is that it is considered one of the easiest languages to learn! If you know a bit about the history of the English language you can see that English has « borrowed » many words from the French language and have other European roots such as German and Latin. This makes it easier to work on improving the most important communication abilities: listening comprehension, oral expression, reading comprehension, written expression. Though don’t worry, it is not because you don’t speak German or any Latin-based language like French and Spanish that it will make this more difficult for you! The key for everyone to improve is simple: practice and constant efforts. There are no other ways.

Private English tutoring allows you to pull all the chances on your side and help you brilliantly succeed in your projects:

  • whether you are a high school student, a primary student or already in college ;
  • whether you want to go through specific chapters and/or concepts that you apprehend and find difficult to entirely grasp ;
  • whether you are looking forward to familiarizing yourself with the Leaving Certificate oral and written formats or any other degree level in English ;
  • whether your objective is to work on your test confidence and deal with your academic anxiety ;
  • whether your goal is to brush up on your grammar and improve specific redaction skills ;
  • whether your ambition is to clarify or refine your oral expression, expand your vocabulary, exchange tips and tricks to learn faster and remember better,
  • Whether your interest lies in adopting revision methodologies and generate consistency in your studying methods.
  • whether you are interested in expanding your knowledge in a specific subject.

And this is because Superprof English tutors from Cork are totally capable to prepare you for any exam, oral or written. Besides, you also have other types of courses to help you deepen your knowledge and level of comprehension in specific areas such as literature (medieval, classic…), computation, renewable energy, maths or even arts.

Our tutors can adapt if you are more of an online student or if you prefer courses in person. You define the best way for you to be supervised. This way you will be at ease to progress with your English proficiency.

About the price, diverse parameters raise the rates. Among the classical is the experience of the private tutor or teacher. Where the course will take place has also its importance. Indeed, if the teacher has to take the transport or his/her car to get to the meeting point, you might have to pay some extra euros. Also, you sometimes have to consider that a teacher with a specialisation (for his studies) might ask for a higher rate, which is understandable. So just remember, overall, an online lesson is less expensive, and you only need a webcam (that your computer probably already have).
