Tutoring and Conversational Practice
These are uncertain times. There hasn’t been an epidemic of these proportions in our lifetimes, and never have we seen schools closed down for weeks — or months — on end. This has left many parents asking: how can I help my child continue to practice speaking and building their interpersonal language skills?
Well we want to help!
We’ve heard from many parents that their middle- and high-school aged children are seeking additional support in world languages and that they want to continue the practice. To help offer additional support during this time, we’re excited to leverage our network of incredible educators to offer Language Tutoring and Conversational Practice options.
You can now book time with one of our Spanish, French, Latin, or Mandarin High School level instructors, to have a conversational practice session, ask specific language questions, or get more focused language tutoring — all done online or via phone, so we can maintain social distancing practices (but still engage in some connection!)
This service can be purchased by the hour for $60/hr, and you’re welcome to book in either 15, 30, or 60-minute increments. Try the first hour for free with coupon code "FREEHOUR" or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Instructors availability varies however, once you register, you will receive the email of your tutor and you may arrange a mutually convenient time to begin your sessions. We also ask that you complete this registration form to give us additional information about your child's goals for these sessions, language level and whether or not they prefer video or chat only sessions.
