Other Language Services in DC:
Many other services in the area exist to maximize profits. Many charge extra fees and lock you into a contract you may not be satisfied with. The tuition you pay goes to a “middle man” and not the teacher responsible for your learning. These “schools” do not require their instructors to be highly qualified because they do not want to pay more money for better quality teachers.
Will you learn English from these other schools? Maybe. Are you getting the best instruction for your tuition dollars? Probably not.
At the English Teacher Collective, you get the best teachers and the best value for your money. You get quality instruction, flexibility and a personal touch.
