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.
We then we send you:
If after checking our feedback and 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 session, we take you through an interactive demonstration of our main strategies, activities and techniques.
Afterwards, we send an After-Session Report containing:
(*Note: The full-price of trial + report is £85. However, book a trial for a date within 7 days of consultation 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 this ‘Trial’ Program. We have other options. But, it is a good starting point because it includes ‘full’ range of our approach/services 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’ beginning of our process to advance your English. So, we do not wait until you officially decide to start working with us, before we officially start working on your English.
|2 weeks||£199 - £299*|
(*Note: If you book a Trial Program within 7 days of doing a 'Trial Session' the full fee of the 'Trial Session' (£85) is deducted from price of 'Trial Program'. The prices shown here include that deduction)
After those three steps you can choose to continue with one of the following options.
The three-stage Advancement Program is our ‘master-plan’ for your English; our most complete and attentive option.
It provides all the training, support and knowledge for you to transcend your current level and push towards a genuinely more advanced standard of fluency.
If you have a genuine desire or need to improve then, this exceptionally-attentive option is the service we recommend.
Essentially, booking the Advancement Program means the transformation of your English becomes our personal project and we give your case our full focus.
|3-month program divided into 3 stages||First stage: £449|
Personalized Coaching is a 3-weekly ‘pay-as-you-go’ arrangement customized to your specific needs and budget.
This flexible, lower-cost (but still impactful) option is for very advanced speakers or very busy people who want to make progress, but need something a bit lighter.
The service is ‘pay-as-you-go’. You book 3-week blocks at a time and exact content of arrangement is decided by you.
You fill up each of your 3-week blocks with sessions and/or services from our range; creating your own personalized arrangement suited to your budget, ambitions and schedule.
|3–weekly 'pay-as-you-go' arrangements||From £150 per 3-week block|
We offer a number of ‘short-term’ programs which focus on specific aspects of your English ability e.g.
– Writing Proficiency
These programs are perfect if you are not in the ‘right’ moment to commit to a more ‘longer-term’ process of advancement; but, still want to make some progress in key areas of your ability.
|From 4-10 weeks||Various prices from £595 upwards|
If you contact us, we will send full-details of these options in PDF format. If you arrange a consultation,
we will be able to get a better idea of your needs, ambitions and budget. Then, we can explain face-to-face which of these two main options might be best for you and potential costs for your particular case.
The program is a 3-month package which is 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 either stop or continue.
|1||Introduction||4 weeks||From £449|
|2||Preparation||6 weeks||From £1295|
|3||Advancement||6 weeks||From £1495|
(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. 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.
Although not a requirement, this option is aimed at people that live in an English-speaking country or use English regularly. Because, one of the objectives of the program is to set you up with all the tools and know-how to make progress as a more independent learner.
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 two additional stages (Stage 4: Reinforcement and Stage 5: Refinement) 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 duration's of programs slightly. However, we do have maximum time-frames for the completion of programs.
