Online English Tuition With A Unique Approach For UK Students Aged 5 To 16

Experience Estia’s innovative online English lessons and tutoring programme designed to help school children excel.

With Estia, your child will have access to:

✅ Personalised online English classes

✅ Material aligned with the national school curriculum

✅ One-on-one check-ins with private English tutors

✅ Our Freephone Teacher Line for guidance and support

✅ Lessons that cater to your child’s learning style

Our approach to online English tutoring goes beyond other platforms.

We don’t make assumptions about your child’s level of English knowledge and understanding.

Our comprehensive online assessment determines the gaps in their English knowledge and designs a tailored programme to address their specific learning needs.

How Our Online English Tutors and Lessons Work

With Estia, your child will have regular online tutoring sessions with a private English tutor. They’ll also receive a personalised lesson plan to fill the gaps in their knowledge.

 

Online Assessment

Step 1: Online assessment

Before their first lesson, students will complete a comprehensive online assessment.

Our intuitive technology identifies where your child needs support to improve their understanding and skills in English.

This is not a traditional English test, and your child won’t need to pass or obtain a certain number of points to qualify.

The purpose of this assessment is simply to learn more about your child’s level of knowledge of the English language.

A tailored English lesson plan

Step 2: A tailored English lesson plan

Your child will have access to online English classes designed to address the gaps we’ve identified. They will have over 2,000 online lessons at their fingertips whenever they’re ready to learn.

These lessons closely follow the national curriculum, so your child will be familiar with what is taught.

Our online English tuition means students can work their way through their programme at their own pace and test their knowledge as they progress.

Aside from their tailored programme, students can also use the Estia platform in manual mode for exam prep, to get help with homework, and to find answers to specific questions.

Private lessons with an expert English tutor

Step 3: Private lessons with an expert English tutor

Your child will have regular check-ins with an online English tutor as they progress through their lessons.

Continued support from real English teachers

Step 4: Continued support from real English teachers

Through our Freephone Teacher Line, both you and your child can speak directly with an online English teacher whenever you need help with an Estia lesson, homework, or assignments from school.

Progress and performance reports

Step 5: Progress and performance reports

As a parent, you will get access to regular progress reports that detail how well your child is performing, where they need support, and how they’ve been using the Estia platform.

Our Building Blocks Approach to English

We believe English is a building block subject that is crucial to your child’s overall education.

The concepts and knowledge they gain at school and through online English tutoring apply to all the other subjects they will learn.

Watch the video below to understand our building blocks approach to teaching English.

Through our unique approach, your child will receive online lessons and tutoring on these core aspects of the English language:

Why Choose Online Classes and English Tutors with Estia?

Here are just some of the reasons why families all over the UK are choosing Estia to help their children build their knowledge, confidence, and English skills.

✅ English classes aligned with the UK curriculum

Our online lessons are closely aligned with the UK English curriculum. This means your child will already be familiar with the material covered in their online English classes and will learn everything they need to perform well at school and beyond.

✅ One subscription for the entire family

We’ve designed our subscriptions so that you only pay one fee for everyone in your family learning English rather than paying per child.

This saves you money, makes Estia’s online tuition affordable, and gives your children the support they need to learn English.

✅ Flexible to fit your schedule

The Estia platform can be accessed anytime, anywhere. This means that your child can learn based on their schedule and routine.

There’s no need to find a local English tutor and try to fit sessions into your child’s day. We provide the lessons, tutoring, marking, and live support to help your child grow when it suits them best.

✅ A comprehensive curriculum

We currently have over 2,000 on-demand lessons and 6 million questions covering the UK curriculum from Year 1 to Year 11.

✅ Minimal parent involvement

We know your time is valuable, but you still want your child to get the best education possible.

Our online English tuition programme requires little parental involvement as we provide all the support your child needs.

However, you will still be kept up to date with progress and usage reports so you can monitor your child’s learning.

✅ A super smart online platform

From an interactive whiteboard for real-time tutoring to intelligent technology that adjusts as your child’s knowledge improves, Estia is a truly innovative platform.

✅ Blended education for all learning styles

Some children learn better when they listen, while others are visual learners. We’ve created our online English lessons to be engaging and interactive, catering to all learning styles. We call this blended learning. Visit our blended learning page to find out more about our lesson style.

✅ Get support from an experienced teacher

If your child is stuck on an English question or is preparing for a test and doesn’t know an answer, they can speak to one of our online English tutors via our Freephone Teacher Line for help. Our tutors are qualified teachers with extensive experience in all levels of English.

Can my child access a GCSE English tutor through Estia?

With your subscription, you’ll also access our entire curriculum for everyone in your family and one-to-one tuition sessions every two weeks with an online English tutor.

Do you offer online tutoring in any other subjects?

At Estia, we believe there are two subjects that are at the core of a good education: maths and English. That is why our platform focuses on teaching children these two subjects. You can learn more about this on our maths tuition page.

Our intelligent online platform can help your child prepare for exams of all kinds using the manual mode. They’ll have access to learning materials and resources to help them study for exams and tests.

What is blended learning?

Each child has a unique way of learning. Some prefer to read, while others learn best with a hands-on approach. Some children learn better by being actively involved, while others want to sit back and let their teacher demonstrate concepts.

For this reason, we’ve created a blended learning system that accommodates all learning styles and preferences. This approach results in highly engaging and interactive learning that helps students to better understand and retain information.

Will my child be a part of a small group?

Our aim at Estia is to provide a fresh take on traditional online tuition. So your child will not be a part of a small group and will instead have one-on-one sessions with an online tutor.

Our platform lets students engage in self-study and development using their personalised lesson plan. This means they can learn at their own pace but still have regular check-ins with their online tutor.

We believe in empowering our students to expand their knowledge and understanding by working through their tailored lesson plans as it suits them. However, an online English teacher can be reached using our Freephone Teacher Line if they have questions or require guidance.
