Personally, I have taught over 10 years. Initially when I first started out, I was teaching home tuition for a period of 6 years. Home Tuition is a very convenient arrangement for both the parent and the student. However, through my culmination of experiences in home tuition, I have managed to identify a few problems.

Why English With Us?
Problem #1: Student Mindset
"At Home, the student is in what I term as an

At Ace, We Pride Ourselves On Having a Conducive Classroom Environment
