About

OTUK is an online English school run by a small team of British English teachers. Our school was founded in 2012 but many of our teachers have been working online for over 5 years. Continue reading

We see online education as the future of teaching and are committed to providing effective, 1-to-1 native English courses via Skype.

Our online school is unique in that it is run by native English teachers from the UK. Many members of our team have lived abroad and also speak additional languages, including: Russian, French, Spanish, Greek and German. We believe that native English teachers should have firsthand experience of studying foreign languages themselves because this aids understanding in the classroom. A good teacher leads by example.

We teach students of all levels from a range of different professional backgrounds and provide customised online English courses to suit your individual study needs. At OTUK we think in English and want to help you do the same. Our aim is to make English an essential part of your life, to surround and involve you in the language.

  • What I like about my lessons were my teacher always listened/ asked what I want to do before the class (just few minutes before the class ends), and he was always well prepared for the next class. I was more than satisfied. I am still learning British English, thus, my teacher was British and always great to hear actual British explanations and accents through my lessons!

  • Joy is a very impressive teacher for children. Her teaching encourages children to express themselves during class without inhibitions. Joy is a really cheerful and open-minded person who responds effectively to the needs of the children by applying various learning methods and resources. We are very happy to have found such a competent teacher for our child, who teaches the English language in a professional, but in an easy comprehensible and fun way!

  • Joel has been teaching my six years old son. Joel quickly established friendly relationship with him. He truly enjoys lessons and is willing to speak and share with his teacher. As the lesson topics are fun and often things of his interests, it is naturally fun for him to talk. He was new to Online lessons, and it was a good surprise for me that it worked so well and fun for him! Thank you so much, Joel.

  • We like the way she is leading the lessons. The variety to present the language from the grammar to the reading and comprehension and use of english, exactly what Emma needs. Sometimes she helps Emma with her homework and Emma feels comfortable talking to Helen. Thanks a lot.

  • These lessons have been a tremendous help in helping our non-native 9-year-old gain confidence and put her vocabulary to work. Now that the speaking apprehension lowered, a number of improvements have been made. The weekly feedback has been an important tool in keeping track. Karen is a great teacher who works excellently with our daughter and manages to get the very best out of her.
