1. THE PROCESS
How you start and continue working with us
This is the process and cost involved when you start working with us (i.e. when you are simply checking out and 'trying' our service)
We listen carefully to your case, answer any questions you may have and give you a general idea of how we would work with you.
If, after considering our feedback and checking our information, you wish to proceed, you simply e-mail us and we will set up a Trial Session for you.
|2||Trial Session + After-Session Report (ASR)||
During Trial Session, we take you through a range of some of our main strategies, activities and techniques, interactively testing key aspects of your proficiency.
We will also take various ‘audio’ samples of the English you produce during these training activities.
Afterwards, we send an After-Session Report containing:
(*Note: The full-price of Trial Session + Report is £85. However, contact us within 48hrs of your consultation to book a Trial Session and get £35 discount)
If, after the Trial Session you wish to proceed further we suggest you complete a short Trial Program.
Note: You do not have to do the ‘Trial’ Program. We have other options. But, it is a good starting point because it includes the ‘full’ range of our approach/services at a relatively lower cost and gives a clear idea of what longer-term path may suit you best.
Our Trial Program includes:
By the end of the Trial Program you should be very clear about how we can push your English to a more advanced level.
Note: The Trial Program is a trial only in that there is no obligation to continue afterwards. However, for us it is the real start of our process to advance your English. So, we officially get to work on your English even during the Trial Program.
|2-3 weeks||Starting at £250|
(*Note: If you contact us to book a Trial Program within 3 days of receiving your 'Trial Session Report' the full fee of the 'Trial Session' (£85) is deducted from price of your 'Trial Program').
After those three steps you can choose to continue with one of the following options.
Our Refinement Sessions service is a ‘pay-as-you-go’ arrangement, consisting of a set number of one-to-one training sessions adapted to your personal needs.
This is our ‘regular’ service and suitable for advanced speakers and/or very busy people looking for a flexible but, impactful option to refine key areas/details of their English.
This option is ‘pay-as-you-go’. You book a minimum of five sessions at a time and exact content of arrangement is decided between you and your coach.
You can also add additional services (e.g. accent training, writing proficiency etc.) from our range; creating your own personalized arrangement suited to your budget, schedule and ambitions.
|Pay-as-you-go but, typically people go on to book between 10-30 sessions||Arrangements start from approx. £65 per session|
Our most complete, attentive and intensive package. A 3-4 month program divided into 3 stages.
Each stage includes a set number of one-to-one coaching sessions and an exceptional amount of support, training and material between sessions.
You can pay for the program in stages (i.e. one stage at a time) or book multiple stages at a reduced rate.
This option is only for very ambitious, enthusiastic and committed learners. If you choose this option, your English becomes our personal project.
|3-4 month program (divided into three stages).||Total cost of whole program starts at approx. £3000 (payment plan possible).|
We offer a number of ‘short-term’ programs, which focus on more singular skills (e.g. Writing, Pronunciation & Delivery etc.).
We also offer a ‘Self-Advancement Program’, for learners based in English-speaking countries (or who use English regularly in their day-to-day lives).
This affordable option consists of 10 x Refinement Sessions (option 1) + extra training/material to show you how to advance effectively by yourself.
|4-8 weeks depending on option.||From £350|
We offer different lower and higher-cost ‘versions’ of the options above. If you arrange a consultation,
we will send you full-details and prices of our main three coaching options and their different versions. Then, in the consultation, once we have a better idea of your needs, ambitions and budget, we can explain which of our options (and which ‘version’) might be best for you.
The program is a 3-4 month package divided into three stages. We offer discounts for booking multiple stages at a time or you can simply book one stage at a time and then, either stop or continue when you have finished that stage.
|1||Introduction||4-5 weeks||From £499|
|2||Preparation||6-8 weeks||From £1295|
|3||Advancement||6-8 weeks||From £1295|
(Note: The prices listed indicate cost of each stage if you pay in advance and in one 'single-payment' . We also offer further discounts for booking multiple stages in advance.)
We have our general range of options and prices. But we also take into consideration individual needs and situations. Here are some examples of our flexibility:
We offer a range of prices; from flexible, lower-cost options to more attentive, higher-priced services. However, we may be able to adjust certain services to meet specific budgets.
Maybe you have a very specific 'English' need? We offer many other services including formal writing courses and preparation for presentations/job interviews and language examinations such as TOEIC, IELTS, CAE.
We mainly work online. However, we offer face-to-face 'physically-present' coaching to groups/individuals residing in London and Tokyo. We can also arrange to travel to other destinations.
You can customize or supplement your arrangement: If you are interested in making extra progress or working on specific skills we offer a range of extra ‘top-up’ services.
Although maximum benefit is attained if you do all the stages, there is no obligation to complete every stage. You could also have 'breaks' between stages but we cannot always guarantee availability after gaps.
One of the main objectives of the program is to set you up with all the tools and know-how to make progress as a more independent learner. So, although not a requirement, this option is aimed at people that live in an English-speaking country or use English regularly.
You do not need you to make any long-term commitment with us. You can commit to one stage at a time and then decide if you wish to continue. However, many clients take advantage of our discounts for booking multiple stages in advance. It is totally your choice.
All stages can be paid for in installments. However, we also offer discounts if you pay for a stage in one single payment and if you book more than one stage at a time.
The ‘real’ push for advancement is concentrated into stages 1-3. However, we also offer a further additional stage (Stage 4: Refinement Program) to work on problem areas and refine the details of your ability.
We can arrange sessions at times to suit your schedule. We can also extend or condense durations of programs slightly. However, we do have maximum time-frames for the completion of programs.
