What is Response Tutoring?

The Four Foundations of Response Tutoring

1. If students have a clear need to produce English, like a test, interview or daily work, then we start with that need to assess and grow ability. Our timed production tasks force users to begin with the English they know – in a form they need.

2. We focus on language rules and production practice to reduce the number of overall mistakes made, at one time. As such, our teachers give general corrections, but then teach the Top 3 errors. When you fix an error, you fix many mistakes.

3. Students need repetition to build confidence and ability. That is why our programs are at least three tasks. Learners need to apply feedback in a series of similar activities to confirm improvement.

4. There are global English levels (Beginner, Intermediate, etc.), but there are many differences in student ability within those levels. Some students are strong in grammar but weak in speaking; or strong at speaking but weak at writing. By starting with a response, our deeply experienced teachers can accurately assess a learner’s unique level and begin the improvement from where they need it most. 

Response Tutoring’s personalized approach avoids wasted time on skills and content that is likely unneeded.


Choice + Production + Top 3 Teaching + Apply and Repeat = Improvement in Skill & Confidence
