We provide individual, tailor-made English - Literature tutoring.
We will be happy to help you with tutoring also in Canterbury.
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 pre-school preparation or preparation for resits. 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 or help catch up with missed topics. We can prepare you for SATS, GCSE, A-LEVELS, and other exams.
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.
My son and I can confidently recommend School Populo
Andrea V., mom
My son and I can confidently recommend School Populo. From very nice approach and communication to smooth lesson running via Skype. In the end, thanks to the lessons, my son’s 6th grade report card was with cum laude. So, well done!
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.
I can recommend School Populo to those interested in taking classes
I can recommend School Populo to those interested in taking classes. We have a very good personal experience with the tutoring coordinator, Miss Barbara P., as well as the German language tutor Miss Barbara K., always a professional approach, friendly approach, willingness. Teaching time and content adapted to the needs of the student. Thank you.
Thank you for your professionalism, friendly approach to individual times of lessons for my daughter
Tutoring with the tutor Leanne K. was at a high level; my daughter improved her pronunciation, acquired knowledge that she would not have received at primary school. It is true that I was surprised by the price per hour, but the discounted package provided by you for a higher number of hours paid off in increasing knowledge and improving English pronunciation and the above-standard approach of your school to the possibility to move the last lessons to the next summer holidays. If we need help with high school subjects, not just English, we will contact your School again.
Every teacher has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that.
I’ve been a teacher at Populo School for some time now. Like any job, tutoring has its pros and cons. To start less positively, especially when preparing for admission exams, it is a demanding job, both in terms of time and head. Both for me as the tutor who has to teach students, be it at seven in the evening or three in the afternoon, I still have to be just as fresh and well prepared, and for coordinators who are literally struggling with the time possibilities of students and tutors that need to match. However, these negatives are well outweighed by the friendly atmosphere, pleasant tutoring premises, and the fact that students do not have to be afraid to go to School Populo, the evaluation is not set as numbered grades, but the tutors use letters to express students’ progress and activity. The amount of textbooks and teaching materials only complements all the positives that the Populo School is proud of. If someone told me that I would have tutoring as fun and I would look forward to every lesson, I would not believe it. However, with School Populo, this idea came true, not only because the tutors are "tailor-made" for each student. Every tutor has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that. The coordinators will help, advise and do everything to make every tutoring a success.
I am overall satisfied
I am satisfied with tutoring of German through Miss H. Her classes are well organized in terms of logistics and, specifically for me, in terms of continuity. We went thoroughly through grammar, verb declination, verb forms, in nouns – definite and indefinite articles, modal verbs, strong and weak verbs, numerals, and phrases. We are currently working on conversation skills – that’s what the company’s owner will mainly want from me. I am overall satisfied.
I highly recommend School Populo lessons
School Populo pleased me, especially with its friendly attitude. It was able to fulfil everything I wanted. I got on very well with the tutor since day one. I could always say what I needed at a given moment or, conversely, what was not necessary. The lessons were held in a friendly spirit during the entire tutoring package. During the emergency period, when it was not possible to meet the tutor in person, the School figured out a way to avoid losing the lessons and hence not falling behind. If you are lost in any subject from mathematics to English, I highly recommend the lessons of School Populo.
Japanese language learning
To learn Japanese, I was looking for an institution that is able to offer me maximum variability of times at an acceptable price. I found School Populo, which accommodates my needs for optimal lesson time and acceptable financial conditions. Communication with the institution has always been fast. The approach of the staff in charge of providing a tutor was welcoming and correct.
I want to thank you very much.
Vicky T., student
I would like to thank you very much for the English course I attended at School Populo led by the tutor Jane T., who was very nice and kind. I appreciate your empathetic approach and your perfect feedback. I was very impressed by your announcement system, informing about lesson date with the tutor’s name. I would like to thank Mrs. Marcella S. and Michelle S. for their kind approach and excellent tutoring skills I very much appreciate.
My son got an A in English and is highly praised by the teacher
Thanks to the support of the great tutor, Suzanne K., and despite my son having mild learning disabilities, he got an “A” at the end of the school year from English, and the teacher praises him very much. Special thanks go to Mrs. Suzanne K. but also to the whole Populo team.

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.

He gets on well with both children and adult “eternal beginners” and tries to get the most out of everyone in a fun way.

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 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.
