📝 What’s the difference between an English tutor and a language tutor?

While a language tutor supports non-native English speakers in improving their language proficiency, an English tutor assists with school-related English subjects such as essay writing, literature, text comprehension, debate, and theory.


Essentially, if you need to enhance your essay writing skills or prepare a presentation on a specific author, find a private English teacher. As essay writing is a basic requirement for graduation, it’s very common for students in Canada to book additional English tutoring after school hours.


In addition, let’s keep in mind that most of these skills (such as essay writing and debate) are key to success in university, regardless of the major.

Here's what an English tutor can help with specifically:

  • Essay writing, creative writing, fiction writing
  • Critical thinking, critical analysis, text analysis
  • Homework and assignments

What can an English tutor help with?

Probably the best way to learn a foreign language for students is to stay for some time in a country where the language is spoken. However, even if you already live in Calgary where English is the main language of communication, you may still struggle to speak it fluently and without mistakes.

In fact, to master a language perfectly well, simply listening to it may not be enough. On top of that, students may need to review grammar, work on their pronunciation and learn new vocabulary. This is where taking a course with an English tutor can be very helpful.

A good ESL (English as Second Language) tutor in Calgary can organize your lessons in efficient ways. They will program the topics you will work on over weeks and determine the objectives to be achieved. As you advance in your learning, you can ask them questions about difficult issues and they'll suggest good exercises to improve your skills.

As an English-speaking city, Calgary has a lot of good ESL tutors offering courses for foreign students. So, let's find out how you can find the right course for you and start taking engaging lessons without losing any time.

ESL courses in a language school

Calgary is a city with a flourishing economy and excellent universities. As a result, it attracts numerous international students and workers from all around the world. But to fully enjoy their experience in Calgary, they often need to improve their English language skills quickly.

Taking an ESL course at a language school can be a great solution for that. Calgary has numerous good organizations offering languages courses for students from other countries. You can take your lessons when you have free time and will be accompanied by a qualified tutor.

Some of the best locations to take classes in the city are the Agape Language Center, Calgary International Learning Center and Anne's Language House. You can find a lot of information about each school online and find the course that best suits your needs.

How much should I pay an English tutor?

The price of English courses in Calgary can vary a lot from one school to another. Depending on how many students there are in the class and the kind of lessons you take, the fees can go from $10 to $50 per class or even more.

If your ESL program lasts for several weeks, the price of each lesson at the school may be lower than if you take lessons one by one. This is why it is very important to choose the right program for a student, so they can learn what they really need.

In addition to their in-class courses, a lot of language schools in Calgary also offer online courses. Studying online can give you more flexibility, so you can organize your learning as it best suits you.
How do you make an English conversation class interesting?

A very important part of learning a language is actually speaking it. An international student who wants to learn English fast should try to practice it as often as possible. If you live in Calgary, you may have a lot of opportunities for that in your everyday life, but if you feel that if it's still not enough, you can also enrol in an English conversation class at a language school.

When looking for conversation lessons, you can enquire about the topics included in the program, as well as how the classes will be organized. Talking about interesting and relevant issues is the best way to make your conversation course interesting and boost your level in a few weeks' time.

Find a qualified ESL tutor on Superprof

Taking a course at a language school can be a good option for students, however, not everyone feels fully comfortable studying with other people. A great alternative to ESL courses at language schools can be to take English lessons with a personal tutor.

When giving lessons on a personal basis, a tutor can adapt them to the student's exact needs. They can focus on topics relevant to that student and offer detailed explanations when needed. This makes private ESL courses a very efficient way to learn English quickly.

The only thing a student needs is to find an experienced tutor who can assist them. A great tool that can help you with that is Superprof. Superprof is an online platform where numerous tutors from Calgary offer their classes.

Superprof will provide you with information about each teacher and can use the platform to get in touch directly with them.
