Importance of English tuition
English is the most prevalent language in the world
English is spoken by a whooping 1.5 billion people, which is roughly equivalent to 20 percent of the world’s population. Although there are other languages with more speakers, English has undoubtedly become the world’s universal language. This is because English has become the de facto language in key sectors like education, entertainment, and business. A good command of written and spoken English will open the doors for us to excel in our increasingly globalised world.

General problems faced when studying English
A common problem faced by non-native English speakers is how to effectively communicate their ideas verbally. Oral communication could be hampered due to poor pronunciation, confusing sentence structure, or just an inability to put ideas into words. Sadly, most students are discouraged or embarrassed by their poor speech and end up speaking up less.
This creates a vicious cycle whereby students create fewer chances for themselves to practice communicating in English. With 1 to 1 English tuition, students are provided with an encouraging environment, in which they can practice English oral communication without fear.
Understanding innuendos in text
Great writers are able to structure text such that there are multiple meanings open to interpretation. There is also a multitude of writing techniques, such as sarcasm , irony, satire, and allegory, that writers use to make their writing more interesting. For example, irony is used when the writer tries to signify the opposite meaning.
Younger students often struggle to understand the “hidden meaning” behind text. Although this can be practised through reading more, guidance and explanations from English home tutors could expedite this process.
Expressing Ideas in Writing
Conveying your ideas in essays is something even native English speakers struggle with. In fact, most students feel that writing is much harder than speaking or reading. This is because the expression of ideas does not flow naturally in writing like how it does in speech.
In writing we are constrained by structure, word limits, and words themselves. In speech, our tone and body language can help us convey our ideas, but in writing it is all limited to the words we put on paper. Stringing your words together in a masterful way that can help you express your ideas is a key goal of English home tuition.
Benefits of English Tuition
Your English tutor will be able to focus all their energy on improving whichever aspect of English you are weak in, be it speech, reading, or writing.
Students often fear embarrassment when speaking up in large classes, in case they mispronounce words or are unable to string sentences together. In a 1-1 English tuition setting, the environment is more encouraging so students can practice speaking English with their English tuition teacher without fear of embarrassment.
