OISC: Online Teaching Provision for students during the COVID-19 Pandemic

OISC Covid19 Provision

During this very difficult period for students, schools, parents and teachers we at OISC are trying to flexibly support our partners, and those students who cannot, or do not wish to, study in Oxford. Whilst at present we remain open as usual, and are committed to supporting in Oxford those students unable to return home at this time, we understand that travelling to Oxford is not possible for all students and are therefore offering bespoke personal teaching for them through Skype.

With this in mind, we are continuing to offer tuition in our full range of subjects, but offering students the option of taking lessons either in person in Oxford, or remotely. Tuition for those students taking lessons remotely continues to be “live”, since the teaching is bespoke, and does not consist of pre-recorded lessons, or online ‘study guides’, which can often be easily be bought online.  We believe that the personal connection with the teacher is very important to encourage perseverance and to maintain morale.

As such each distance-learning student is, as usual, matched with one or more of our leading OISC tutors, who will help with working through the student’s syllabus, planning revision, giving advice on weak areas, and setting targets and tests.

The methods used depend on the subject and the student and are based on one-to-one Skype tutorials, together with submission and assessment of written work.

Most subjects are offered for ISEB (Common Entrance and scholarship tests, 11+, 13+ ) ,  (I)GCSE,  ALevel, Oxford and Cambridge Tests, and English Language exams, e.g. IELTS, as well as General English practice.

The online programmes can be combined with personal tuition in Oxford when circumstances permit.

Given the challenging circumstances, all online programmes are offered with a 10% discount on usual rates for one to one tuition. Programmes of 10, 20 or 30 lessons per week are available.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss your requirements.
