If you don’t like raising your hand, waiting for your "turn," or listening to others do it better (or worse) than you, one-on-one lessons are right for you! Ok, so maybe it's not that you prefer learning without others around, but you’d rather have class on a Tuesday morning because you’re busy and your schedule doesn’t always match up with our group classes. Perfect! We’re flexible so you don’t have to be. Private lessons are normally once or twice a week for two hours at a time, but you tell us how you like it and that’s how we do it. That's what private lessons are all about!

Private lessons tend to follow the same coursework as group classes, but your teacher will be able to turn your specific language weaknesses into strengths much more quickly.

Private Lesson Rates

We rent our Williamsburg, Brooklyn space full time and can easily reserve a classroom for your lesson at that location. In Manhattan, Boston, D.C., Philadelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin and Chicago we only rent classrooms by the hour for our group classes and usually can't provide a classroom for private lessons. However, many students have the teacher come to their home/office or decide on a centrally located public place, like a café/coffee shop, library or bookstore reading room. We are more than happy to work with you and the teacher to find a suitable location if your home or office won't work. As long as the location is central (it doesn't require that the teacher travel far from the downtown part of the city), we are happy to honor the special package rate for 14 hours for only $980 ($70/hour).

Interested in having a friend or two join you? The price is only $10/hour more for each additional person! If you are considering having more than 1 or 2 friends join you, contact us about special rates for private lessons with groups of students.

Teachers are assigned to students for private lessons based on availability, but we can definitely schedule students with one consistent teacher if you purchase a private lesson package.

You can schedule private lessons at a consistent and recurring time slot, but you can also schedule them at a different time slot each week - whatever works best for you and the teacher that you'll be working with. Please note that availability for private lessons on weeknight evenings is usually limited because that is when our teachers are teaching group classes, but those time slots aren't totally out of the question.

**All 14 hours in a private lesson package must be used within 6 months of the purchase date. 

***The cancellation policy for private and makeup lessons is as follows: 24 hour notice is required for cancellation of any Monday-Friday lessons. 48 hours notice is required for Saturday and Sunday cancellations. Otherwise, you will still be charged.
