Ages 4-16, all backgrounds and levels

Following the introduction session, our teachers work with you to create a learning plan for your children. You may want support with the topics they’re covering at school, you may want them to learn English from 0 following our own syllabus. We adapt our classes to your needs to ensure your children are improving their English in a fun and interactive way. 

All our classes take place on Zoom and the links are easily accessible on your dashboard. Unless requested to use your child’s school materials, we use our own original materials including YouTube videos, online quizzes and games as well as virtual flashcards and fun presentations. We have an easily accessible lesson record of what we cover in class so you can keep track of your child’s progress. 

We recommend classes of 30 or 45 minutes for young learners aged up to 14 years old and extend this to 60 minutes for 15 and 16 year olds. We book in all your classes for you and you have the flexibility to cancel or rearrange your classes with 24 hours.

You don’t need to prepare anything for your introduction session. It’s a chance for us to see your English level, understand your goals and English and discuss the logistics of timetable and payments. It is your chance to ask us any questions about how we teach, including our methodology and materials. 

That’s completely up to you! You can choose to have a daily, bi-weekly or weekly class. All private students must have a minimum of 4 hours per month, with the exception of the first calendar month, in case you wish to start in the middle of the month. 

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Any classes cancelled with more than 24 hours’ notice from the starting time of the class will be cancelled and you will have the chance to reschedule this class. Any classes cancelled within 24 hours of the starting time of the class will be charged at full price with no refunds available and no possibility to reschedule.

No. At the end of each calendar month, you can decide whether to continue another month. We will reserve your scheduled classes 2 months in advance in the hope that you will continue with us. This ensures your teacher will be available for you and this time won’t be taken up by other learners. 

At Virtually Fluent, we recognise the British public holidays as bank holidays. If your class falls on a public holiday, the class will be cancelled and you can reschedule it with your teacher. If your class falls on a local public holiday, you must inform your teacher at the beginning of that calendar month to rearrange the class.

You can keep track of your booked classes on your account, where all Zoom links can be found too. We also send email confirmations for each class.

We provide a 15-minute waiting window at the beginning of each class. If you don’t appear in the online class within the first 15 minutes, the class will be automatically cancelled with no refund available.

Each student will have a personal Google Drive folder shared only between yourself and your teacher. Your teacher will summarise each class and upload all materials used in class to your folder so you can easily access all your materials. All private class learners receive full access to our supporting grammar and vocabulary courses too. These can be accessed on our website. 

Yes. Zoom is our main communication tool, but we can arrange alternatives if Zoom is not available for you including Skype, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, Whatsapp and Facetime video or audio calls. You can discuss this with us in your introduction session.
