At American English Institute, we continue to cultivate learning even after students complete their English program. After students have completed level 500, 600, or 700, students may return for 10 hours of individual tutoring at no cost to help them make the transition to college and university life successfully. We know that at this critical juncture, students may need to return to get help writing papers for their new English classes and we're available to continue to help them!
