Professional Online Language Tutoring: 100% Personalized for You
Although long-term language-learning programs incorporating both complete language-learning software and conversation practice have proven to be the best path for those hoping to achieve true language proficiency, oftentimes this is more than certain learners either need or desire. For those learners searching for a quick alternative to the typical learning option, Transparent Connect Online Language Tutoring sessions are the ideal solution.

Two Possible Ways to Use Your Tutoring Session(s)
Language Tutoring for Absolute Beginners

Ideal for learners who may have previously studied a foreign language but find themselves out of practice and now in need of a tune-up.
Like we do for the absolute beginner, Transparent Connect Refresher sessions will be customized by your instructor to match your specific, language-learning needs. Topics covered and skills worked on vary depending on what it is you want to learn.
Professional Language Tutoring: Designed to Fit Any Schedule
With Transparent Connect Tutoring, you will receive 90 minutes of private, customized lessons with an experienced language instructor. These tutoring sessions are delivered either by email, phone, or in our online classroom environment where you can use video to communicate with your tutor. You can schedule these one-on-one sessions in a variety of increments, for up to 90 minutes in total, throughout the duration of your subscription.
Your tutor will work with you to determine not only your exact language proficiency, but what you are interested in learning, as well. From there, they will be able to create customized tutoring sessions based on your goals and areas for improvement. Some students prefer to focus on conversation practice; others want to learn more about the most challenging grammatical topics; many have questions about particular examples they have found confusing. Our Transparent Connect Tutoring sessions may include any and all of the above, depending on your preference. Your tutor will also provide you with targeted guidance and personal goals for your next steps towards improving your language skills.
Why should you enroll in tutoring? A study by the U.S. Department of Education has proven that the combination of computer-based learning programs and live, human instruction is far superior to either method of learning independently. With the aid of a tutor, you will be able to advance your language skills at a faster rate than just learning on your own. Even better, students rave that our tutors are "well-educated", "experienced", "patient", and "encouraging".
Sessions can be scheduled by emailing your assigned tutor to find a time that suits both the tutor and the student (Please note: these sessions are NOT predetermined at the time the subscription is purchased. All coaching sessions are to be scheduled according to the student's and tutor's availability).
