Key Benefits

You can benefit from:

      • Private tuition which greatly enhances the student's progress (this greatly affects the speed of learning as well as the amount of information that someone can absorb in a given time)
      • No 'group tuition' issues.
      • All students get the same level of attention from the instructor
