Learn in a private setting, at your own pace, by receiving all the attention you need and consume everything faster than in a class. Private lessons are now more accessible, very affordable and offered in a wide variety of topics in Cyprus.
Enter a whole new world and make your life exciting!
Many years ago private lessons were mostly offered to kids, teenagers and students. Private teachers were usually hired to help students with school lessons, prepare for university exams or help the ones already attending university. More often, to teach a foreign language.
Later, technology evolution forced many employees to attend private lessons too, in order to stay updated and keep their jobs or get the skills needed to go after better jobs.
Since then, when everyone found out how easy and fast one can learn anything with the help of private courses and the focused, flexible and personalized way of teaching, this “hobby” really bloomed.
Imagine the possibilities!
Nowadays, private lessons are not a luxury and the teachers are very experienced and qualified professionals. In Cyprus, private lessons are offered at a wide range of topics and can be attended at your own house or depending on the topic and needs at specialized premises.
Of course, if you seek a lesson not available in Cyprus, you always have the Internet and an enormous catalogue of e-lessons & e-classes to choose from. Note though, that regarding private lessons, it is better and much more efficient to attend the lessons in person.

Our times require the knowledge of at least two foreign languages and this is something we all can see in our work and everyday life. Everything becomes easier and this is why foreign languages is the most popular type of private lessons.
Whether for kids or adults, learning a language can be done easier and faster if we have the full teacher’s attention. Statistically, after English language, Spanish, Chinese and Russian languages are in very high demand! For some strange reason I think German is going to be really popular too! :)

Private Lessons Tips
- Ask your teacher in advance about the amount of homework you will have. If it is too much, you will either fail or quit. So, it is best that he plans his teaching material accordingly.
Also, ask him to go slower or quicker depending on you skills or strength. After all, this is why you chose private lessons, so that you can set the pace and make it easier to follow.
- Your teacher might have all the necessary qualifications and knowledge to teach you everything on the topic you are interested in. However, your chemistry may not match. Ask him if you can have a couple of trial lessons (paid of course) and then make your decision and allow him to plan the full schedule of your lessons.
If he/she is not the one, don’t hesitate to say so. It is a pity to lose interest on a topic you love just because the teacher doesn’t inspire you.
- A private lesson’s teaching program is almost never the same with that of a conventional class. A foreign language lesson for instance, is taught in a specific way in a group of students while when private, it has to follow your pace and needs.
If you wish to learn Spanish for your job and you are for example, a doctor, then the tutor will make sure that you learn the medical terminology, too. In a class, this just doesn’t happen.
Cool Private Lessons Ideas!
If you are about to visit an exotic place or a country that is completely unknown to you, it is very important that apart some basic vocabulary, you should also know the important things about this country, such as its people, its culture and etiquette in order to avoid surprises and misunderstandings.
For example, when shopping in Japan, you should never give money to people’s hands directly. Instead, you should always put it on the cashier’s special cases because the fear of germs in this country is huge and they will hate you for that! :)
Since selfies have flooded our lives, you may now hire an expert in order to learn how you can take outstanding selfies. No, this doesn’t only include the art of photography, camera secrets or which light can make you look better.
In these lessons you may learn everything about your personal style, your makeup, how you should have your hair, the art of pose, and all available selfie gadgets in the market today as well as the best photo editing software. Well, did you ever think that Kim just presses a button? :P
They are usually offered to professionals that have to speak to a large audience and feel extreme anxiety or stage fright or to professionals who are too afraid to ask their boss for more.
A higher salary or a position we know that we are entitled, can be lost in seconds simply because we do not know how to ask and demand. Or we might have very interesting and important things to share with our audience but our trembling and very low voice will surely ruin our speech. Of course, all these belong to the past because now you just need the right teacher to can get all the help you need!
