PRIVATE TUTORING

Private tutoring takes place at our Cambridge offices or online, and offers students the opportunity to benefit from face-to-face interaction, with more flexibility than our group classes. Students with specific needs, or advanced students who simply need to review and practice, may find tutoring an excellent opportunity for them. We offer tutoring to ages 6 and above.

INTENSIVE DAYS

The Extra Practice You're Looking For.

Learning a language is essentially like a sport - it requires constant practice and training to keep in shape. Even our most advanced students need to stay active with their language skills in order to keep what they've learned fresh in their minds. And many of our students need to practice their skills but don't have the time in their busy schedules to commit to a full class.

 

INTENSIVE DAYS

*TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE*

Saturdays (Once A Month), 4 hours, $75

 

RoLa's Intensive Days are designed for students looking for an immersion environment to review or get some extra practice. This one-day multimedia class meets at our Porter Square office. All study materials, as well as a meal, are included within the class fee.

IMMERSION TRIPS

We Take You There Where Languages Live!

Join a group of people and learn your target language while visiting exciting cities. We offer scheduled trips but also conceptualize an individual travel-learning program for you and your friends.

 

COME WITH US TO PARIS!

RoLa believes that the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it. What better way than visiting a country that speaks your target language?
