AFTER SCHOOL TUTORIAL

ec com has been providing After School Tutorial classes to Primary and High  School students in Christchurch since
2003. Most lessons are available ”online” and/or at our office for learner convenience.

 

Private one-to-one tutorial is also available.

We continue to offer the following class lessons from Monday to Friday between 3.30pm and 7.00pm subject to learner demand:

  • English Support

Three levels – Beginner/Elementary; Pre-Intermediate +; Intermediate +. We also provide Primary School study at three basic levels, sourcing study material from a wide range of resources including NZ Curriculum based exercises.

  • IELTS  

- Entry Level IELTS study targeting high Pre-intermediate/ low Intermediate level learners aimed at IELTS band scores between 4-5. This a great introduction to IELTS and/or general English study.

  • TOEIC

We provide a three-course progressive programme. Each course contains 6 x 1.5hour lessons. Further specialised study is available on request.​

  • TOEFL

- To cover the full programme learners would need to commit to 50-70 hours of study. We recommend a minimum study course of 30 hours. With additional lessons and tests available.

  • SAT

- We recommend a minimum study course of 30 hours to cover materials, although, additional lessons and practice tests are available. Most learners elect to continue to study over a longer period of time.​

Small classes (max 5) mean that all students get time spent with them individually to help them understand and gain true learning. In a small class the students also learn from each other in a collaborative learning environment.

  • We assess learners’ English ability and needs, to recommend an appropriate text for study.

  • Learners are required to purchase their own copy for personal study and review; most common texts are able to be sourced by eccom on behalf of learners, if required.

  • We have developed a study method to create independent learners and provide one to two hours of self-study for every one hour of face to face class time.
