Learning with School Populo is different than with classical language schools. We offer only one-on-one language courses, i.e. one student per tutor. This teaching method brings huge benefits to our clients, and it is much easier to reach the required language level. All our classes can be taught online.
We offer one-on-one classes in foreign languages such as English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, Portuguese, Hungarian, Korean, Vietnamese, Czech, Slovak, etc.

Course of tutoring
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
information about the lesson's course, 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!
I would like to thank you all very much for your helpfulness and friendly approach to tutoring our daughter Tina. We will definitely use your services again in the future.
Mark’s story – correction of deficits
Mark was a child, according to the kindergarten teachers, “with no manners”. But everything was a little more complicated. Mark had trouble concentrating because he perceived sequence and succession differently and needed to adjust cognitive function deficits. He was unable to associate his behaviour with the consequences it caused in other people, and he could not select the essential from what he was told. This was then manifested when he had a problem learning the basic number series or understanding that the letters follow one after another according to a given order. Exercises that developed perception, remembering things, and the ability to repeat the exact sequence of what was done were therefore included in the standard teaching of the minimum for enrolment. Rituals and an emphasis on regularity and order were also an important part. Mark made a lot of progress in a month, which many people confirmed. He was admitted to school, and your lessons corrected his deficit and made his first grade start smoother.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank School Populo very much for tutoring my son
Mrs. K., mom
I would like to take this opportunity to thank School Populo very much for tutoring my son. Absolutely perfect cooperation, immediate communication, daily reminders of lessons for the next lesson, and student evaluation sent daily. The tutor Catherine is a very communicative, helpful, empathetic, and a good teacher. My son passed the exam without any problems! Thank you very much, and if we found ourselves in a situation where we needed tutoring again in the future, we would definitely choose this school!
I would like to thank you for your great help in language education
I would like to thank you for your great help in language education. My son managed to master the languages and hence got straight A’s in the eighth and ninth grades. We believe that even this will help him get accepted to the selected grammar school.
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.
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.
My granddaughter started attending tutoring at Populo
Eleanor L., grandmother
My granddaughter started attending tutoring at Populo last year when she was in the ninth grade, and her grades were like on a rollercoaster. The worst was chemistry, and she improved in it a lot. In the second half of the year, we replaced chemistry with Biology and I must say that the progress was evident. In the spring, I arranged a few mathematics lessons for my youngest granddaughter (6th grade), who needed to improve her grades for the report card, and she also improved. It is true that both girls were interested in improving. If there was no interest, it probably wouldn’t be that good. I definitely appreciate the environment – a friendly atmosphere, and tutors who can work with moody teenagers. After each lesson, parents receive on their e-mail an evaluation, but here I have the impression that there is a tendency rather to praise. This year, one of the granddaughters continues attending Populo.
Mom’s story - correction of deficits
Our son Matthew was supposed to go to school enrolment and was labelled as a “naughty” child. He had trouble learning the basic minimum for enrolment, and he didn’t show much interest in learning. Because I was not satisfied with the approach I encountered in the pedagogical-psychological counselling office, I was looking for a method that would be individual and more human. A friend of mine recommended me School Populo and their pre-school preparation, with which she had a good experience. After a few lessons, I saw the progress and I was glad to have chosen a private institution. Matthew’s approach to school changed completely after a few lessons. He began to write coloured letters and numbers all by himself, syllabify from books and began to show interest in things other than cartoons. I do not regret the investment because this really paid off!
At School Populo we were very satisfied with our tutor
At School Populo we were very satisfied with our tutor. Our son made a significant shift in understanding the subject that he struggled with. His tutor was friendly, helpful, and interested in our son’s current subject needs that needed to be explained and practiced.
Hannah is just finishing her first “school year” at School Populo. She’s a graduate of Judaism at Palacky University. As part of her studies, she had the opportunity to travel twice to Israel, where she completed an ulpan course, i.e. an intensive Hebrew course. In tutoring, she values the opportunity to constantly increase and develop her own knowledge based on students' interaction. She is currently studying Jewish philosophy at the doctoral program at the Faculty of Philosophy at University. Hannah enjoys culinary activities in her free time or goes to get energy from the surrounding and more distant countryside.
