We provide individual, tailor-made English as a Foreign Language tutoring.
We will be happy to help you with tutoring also in Halifax.
We test the student’s knowledge, and using the results of
placement tests and any other requirements, we prepare a study plan, and online tutoring can begin next week.
Tutoring can have a different focus and also length. One lesson lasts 45 minutes, but some people prefer a two-hour
lesson (90 minutes) or even longer blocks. Courses are always individual, so you don’t have to wait for the
course to open. You can start at any time. The course length and lesson intensity depend on you. Some people
choose the so-called „quick help“ in the form of 5 lessons, and others prefer regular semestral or annual
At School Populo, we can ensure regular tutoring, preparation for important exams and certificates, but we can also help with translations, interpreting, or proofreading. Whether you need help improving your knowledge of the subject for school or work, or just for your own interest, we are here for you.
We help students with complex topics at school or with homework. We will prepare them for ongoing tests and exams or help catch up with missed topics.
Together with the methodological centre, our tutors will draw up a study plan for each student and regularly supplement materials for home practice.
Our sophisticated online teaching system offers time flexibility so that you can study from the comfort of your home. Apart from your own computer and connection, you don’t need any special equipment.
Each of our future students has the opportunity to take a free placement test. Based on its result, we will recommend a suitable lesson frequency and length. After each lesson, you will receive
the minutes of the lesson, the topics covered, and the evaluation of progress via e-mail. Parents and students are also informed about each upcoming lesson via an SMS message, which contains
the lesson date and time and the tutor’s name.
It always seemed to me that my daughter Mary had a talent for languages. She learned to read in English herself, so I thought about trying to give her a chance to learn the basics of German at an early age so that she would have an advantage in first grade. Pre-school preparation gave her a chance to develop this talent. She did well in German thanks to many fun exercises Mary did with Miss tutor, and also thanks to the fact that no one pushed her. I also wanted to give credit to the “total physical response” method, which has also proved very useful. I started to see the results very quickly when my daughter at home started reading short German fairy tales, picture books, and catching words from fairy tales, which I played on the computer. We are now considering other languages as well because talent should be nurtured from a young age and the Pre-school preparation method works very well!
We were very satisfied with the classes.
Phoebe V., mom
We were very satisfied with the classes. The teacher was very welcoming and had a very positive effect on my son. We are glad that we’ve contacted you and we believe that we will use your services in the future.
I can highly recommend it to everyone!
I was extremely satisfied with School Populo. I can highly recommend it to everyone! My son made great progress, and communication with Populo school was always great.
Perfect approach, I can only recommend
I can’t say anything but that they helped me incredibly, basically saved me. Perfect approach, especially from my English tutor, Lucy B. I can responsibly recommend it.
Japanese language learning
To learn Japanese, I was looking for an institution that is able to offer me maximum variability of dates at an acceptable price. I found School Populo, which met my needs both in search of the optimal teaching time and acceptable financial conditions. Communication with the institution has always been fast; the performance of the staff in charge of providing a particular tutor was welcoming and correct.
Thank you all
Vicky, student of Italian
Thanks to your School Populo, my horizons have been widening since February, and my tutor and I are experiencing exciting moments while learning Italian during our classes. In my 50+ I am again like a young pupil, and progress is visible. I look forward to going to Italy and being able to use my efforts in practice. Thank you all. Knowledge is the only thing no one will take from you!
I can recommend School Populo to those interested in taking classes

Teaching time and content adapted to the needs of the student. Thank you.
Thank you for perfect online tutoring for my son
I recommend it to everyone, a professional approach and a great tutor.
At the very beginning, I would like to tell you that Vanessa is one of the best tutors at School Populo. With the help of Vanessa and her knowledge, I simply mastered the topics I did not understand. The lessons were focused on gradual practicing with a review wrap-up at the end. Even the communication between Vanessa and me was perfect. Thanks to the tutoring, I was well prepared for the resit. It helped me a lot because I achieved better results than during the school year. So thank you very much for explaining to me the topics that I could not understand. Thank you
Italian lessons at School Populo were a great benefit for me
Italian lessons at School Populo were a great benefit for me. My tutor was kind and inspiring and always well prepared for individual lessons and my questions. I also really appreciated the fact that we could focus on a topic that currently interested me (e.g. preparation for a stay in Rome…). At the same time, I would like to highlight the work of the coordinators, who found me a great tutor and who also helped me plan the lessons. The premises of School Populo are nice. I especially preferred smaller classrooms. I definitely recommend Italian.

I am one of those happy people who do their job with love. I have taught and tutored at the same time for a long time, but tutoring brings me more satisfaction. I like to approach students individually, which I can through tutoring. My hobbies include reading, film, good music and sports. I like to meet new people, countries, and places, so I travel often. I’m looking forward to our lessons together.
Economics, French and English language tutor
Joseph was originally an economics engineer. At present, and undoubtedly in the future years, however, he is completely enthralled by the magic of French. The French language is literally beginning to replace his mother tongue, which would not be a big surprise after years of traveling to France, teaching, interpreting, and translating. With a similar passion, Joseph also does English with a focus on economics and law. In his free time, he is a great lover of French literature and good French wine.

In high school, he was passionate about foreign languages, so he went to teach English wherever he could. Now, in his fifth year and still happily, he continues at School Populo, and passing on his knowledge is a pleasant distraction during his demanding medical studies. He gets on well with both children and adult “eternal beginners” and tries to get the most out of everyone in a fun way. In his free time, he enjoys music, especially piano and keyboards in the faculty band.

Barbara is a student of the University of South Bohemia, the Faculty of Theology, in the master’s program in Philosophy. As a true philosopher (lover of wisdom), she tries to pass on this wisdom to others and helps them develop. She also doesn’t lack the ability to empathize with the needs of others. A tutor simply has to engage and be able to “teach well”, which is sometimes really tricky. Communication between the tutor and the student is equally important. Barbara prefers to spend her time in good company. She likes doing sports – especially fitness, swimming, and cycling.
English language, history and art history tutor
Jane focuses on tutoring for admission and secondary school-leaving exams and supports students in preparing for re-sits.

Since 2012, she has been actively teaching the subjects and participating in various art workshops.

Natali joined the team of tutors at the beginning of 2017, and she really likes working at School Populo. She studies a combination of German and Italian at the Faculty of Philosophy.

English language teacher
This is Andrew. He likes to learn new things just like everyone else. However, he sometimes feels like he does not know anything, even things he thought he knew. But there would be always something. There is no greater joy for Andrew than to put a smile on someone's face, so he has been acting since he was 10. However, acting is not taught at School Populo, so he had to find another hobby. As a small child, he came into contact with English very often. It was not just a matter of simple communication. He was looking for something hidden in this beautiful language - nooks full of secrets… And he does so to this day.
