Academic English 2020-04-08T10:07:22+07:00

“Academic English” for pre-University Students

So many students are now faced with weeks, or more likely months, of being in limbo before they begin the next phase of their education. A very high proportion of these students find that writing excellent Academic English is very challenging and they desperately need a course that will give them the skills they must have that will enable them to write well when they are immersed in University courses.

Gary King, our Director, is offering a custom-designed course for pre-University students that will give them the tools and the confidence to write well no matter what the course is that they are going to study at university. The course can be tailored towards the specific needs of each student: the course can be more Business or Economics based, Science based, or just general Academic English. The course consists of readings and associated writing assignments and presentation skills so that students can speak about a topic of interest for a certain time period: anything from 5 minutes to 30 minutes during the tutorial. Mr King will train each student to write well, write confidently and to speak clearly with correct pronunciation and intonation that will grab the attention of all listeners.

The course can be 12 hours, 21 hours or 30 hours in duration and delivered in 90-minute tutorial slots at any mutually convenient time of the day, once or twice per week. The course can be delivered to each individual student online via Skype or Zoom. The fees are shown below:

      Covid-19: Tutorial Procedures

      Just recently the Covid-19 situation has become increasingly worse once again and obviously worrying for all of us. Schools are closed or likely to be closed and will be offering online learning to supplement and replace all classroom teaching, homework assignments, examination preparation and project work. We here at GK Consultants will continue to work with students on their learning, school assignments and try to support each of them in terms of organisation, time management and other guidance as needed. Intensive support for IGCSE, A Level, SAT, ACT, AP and IB examinations will continue as we approach crucial dates during these next few months. Homeschooling programmes will continue as before.


      GK Consultants will continue to operate as follows:


      • Students can have their tutorials delivered either in person or by an online learning interface such as Skype or Zoom. Remote methods of teaching and learning work well, and we have used online teaching and learning techniques for many years. Online tutorials are scheduled at the same time as their face-to-face counterparts or can be rescheduled if an alternative time is convenient for the student and the tutor.


      At GK Consultants we are always here to discuss all matters relating to your son’s or your daughter’s education. Just because we are dealing with a health crisis does not mean that education is interrupted – you child’s future is as important today as it ever was.

      We look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions and let us all hope that the situation improves soon and we will be able to look back on this current pandemic in terms such as, “Do you remember when……...”

      Best wishes to you all: I, my academic team and administrative team wish you and your family a happy, healthy, safe, and successful 2021.


      Gary King
