Other English Language Services:
The trend these days is to build a digital platform and have English tutors sign up and compete with one another for business. In this ‘pay to play’ model, the technology company is the one that receives the most profit and the only accountability for the quality of the lessons are the reviews - which are often not real. Typically you have to create an account and then judge for yourself if the tutors who respond to your request will meet your needs. You may have to try out a few tutors before you find the one that works for you. Or perhaps no one responds at all.
We keep it simple. We are real people who have developed this company ourselves. Each teacher is carefully selected and we collaborate to bring you the best results. When you contact us, a human will respond to you and conduct a proper needs assessment.
At The English Teacher Collective you get effective instruction, flexibility and a personal touch.
