You can study English with Michael in New York or online via Skype
Language tutoring begins with a personal consultation. Before starting lessons, your teacher will meet with each student face to face for a level assessment and counseling session. This helps us to understand your English level and your needs. Tell us what you need to learn, your goals, and we will create a course of study just for you.
Private English Tutoring
Private tutoring is one to one study. Your teacher will prepare each lesson just for you, based on what you need to learn, and what you want to study. No boring textbooks - real English that you can use right away. We can help you with Everyday English, TOEFL Preparation, Business English, Writing, and much more!
Face to face lessons are held at Happy English's office, located at 275 Madison Avenue (at the corner of 40th Street)
Skype lessons are held online, so you can study wherever you have a computer and internet access
Lesson Fee and Schedule
Happy English's high quality tutoring costs $50 per hour for a private lesson. This includes all materials, and preparation time as well. Your teacher prepares every lesson for each student on a one by one basis. Most students study once a week for one or two hours. Some students study twice or more each week. We can arrange a schedule that fits your budget and learning needs.
