When you sign up for any of our courses you will have full access to our highly qualified and experienced personal tutors whenever you need them.

If you want advice about looking for work or need to ask a question about teaching English to someone who has been there and done it, and literally written the book… then your personal tutor is the one to ask!

ICAL tutors have:

  • A second degree (MA or equivalent) in English or relevant field
  • A higher-level TESL/TEFL qualification (or equivalent)
  • Several years experience working as an ESL/EFL teacher
  • Relevant teacher training experience and qualifications
  • And of course a friendly and helpful attitude!

And here are some of them:
