Описание

Founded by Edward Greene in 1967, under the name Edward Greene’s Tutorial Establishment, Greene’s is Oxford’s oldest tutorial college – indeed quite possibly the oldest in the U.K.
Our individualised programmes are rooted in the tutorial system, a method of learning synonymous with the University of Oxford. We have remained true to this educational philosophy for decades, which allows us to design courses of individual tuition for all students, regardless of their background. Over the last 54 years, many thousands of students have benefitted from a personalized education, supported by professional staff and taught by world-class tutors.
In 2017, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Greene’s opened a sister College in Portugal and became the first educational institution to bring the tutorial system to the country, making it also available to all Portuguese speaking countries.
All our students can benefit from our campuses, giving them the opportunity to have an international and multicultural experience in another country during their academic programme.
While proud of our heritage and depth of experience, we are passionate about innovation and preparing our students for the 21st century. It was that passion that inspired us to develop Greene’s Online – our unique software through which the boundaries distancing parents, their children, and tutors, are eliminated.
Whether face-to-face, online or blended, students all over the world can benefit from the highest-quality tuition, which has always been the hallmark of a Greene’s Oxford education.
“The college exceeds expectations. The courses are highly appropriate for the ages and career aspirations of the students and enable them to make excellent progress.”

THE TUTORIAL METHOD
Our Tutorial Method of learning comprises the principle of treating each student as an individual cultivating confidence, critical thinking, ability to work with others, effective oral and written communication and independent learning skills.
Learning is not only about memorising, practising, and examinations. It is also about the ability to reason, debate, and think independently – all attributes that need to be developed for future success at university and in the workplace.
In today’s world, information is more freely available and accessible than ever before and we believe that our method, which focuses on the processing of concepts, ideas and knowledge through discussion, is more relevant than ever.
Often at school you are taught in a group then given homework to practise and consolidate what you have learnt. In a tutorial environment you will first study by reading, problem solving, working with your colleagues, working on projects, attending talks and completing assignments. You should then expect to be challenged to think and discuss your work with your Tutor.
“Teaching, learning and assessment are excellent and consistently high quality. Tutorials have a coherent structure and are used very effectively to meet individual needs; consequently, students learn well and make very good progress.”

GREENE’S TUTORS
Greene’s tutors offer a considerable diversity of subjects, knowledge and personality, enabling students to benefit from an extraordinary richness of experience and talent – and we take pride in carefully matching tutors to students’ needs. Because individualised tuition is key to our philosophy, we have a wider range of specialist tutors from which we can draw than most schools.
Our tutors will often have achieved considerable academic success themselves, and many past Greene’s tutors have gone on to distinguished and prominent academic careers. Greene’s tutors are chosen for their ability to communicate their excitement for their subject and their experience in examinations, in a practical and down-to-earth way, to help their students succeed.
We follow a rigorous recruitment procedure and, in addition to suitable qualifications and experience, tutors are required to participate in continuing training – making them exceptionally effective, whether it be for aptitude test, IGCS or A level preparation. Tutors are encouraged to undertake tutoring at a number of levels, and many also teach at university.
“Tutorials are very well planned and follow very detailed schemes of work.”

ONLINE LEARNING
With over a decade of experience in online tuition, Greene’s has established itself as a reference in remote managed education. All our Tutors are trained in online teaching techniques, and we provide both them and our students with all the equipment and software required to maximise the online learning experience. In addition, our staff is attuned to the students’ needs outside their tutorials and are experts in providing remote academic support and counselling.
Through our online solution, students can have access to a pool of almost two hundred world-class tutors based in Oxford, whose combined expertise and teaching experience span almost every subject from the main International Exam Boards (Cambridge, Pearson Edexcel, IB, etc.).
Whether exclusively online or through our blended learning programme, the great wealth of professionals working with Greene’s allows us to match each student’s personality and educational needs with the right Tutor. By removing the geographical barriers between Greene’s students and their Tutors, we are able to personalize each learner’s educational experience in both the human and the academic aspects.

UNIVERSITY PREPARATION
For over 50 years, Greene’s has helped many thousands of students prepare for entry to the most competitive universities in the U.K., the U.S. and the rest of the world.
We are able to support students, with specialist help, to choose universities, complete the necessary forms, prepare for the relevant aptitude tests, and practice for interviews.
Whatever the student’s subject, course or university destination, Greene’s is happy to support students in any way that may benefit them. We can ensure all the various elements of the university application are covered:
• Choice of course and university;
• Completion of personal details;
• Support with the tests to establish critical thinking skills, academic aptitude or language competence;
• Liaising with personal or academic referees;
• Required statements about the applicant’s attitudes, achievements, aspirations, etc.;
• Guidance on wider and deeper reading and research;
• An authenticated set of results;
• Advice on visits, open days or formal interviews.
“Support and guidance, delivered through the regular personal tutorials, provide excellent preparation for university entrance.”

EXAMINATIONS
Greene’s is an approved examinations and testing centre, and all examinations and tests for both internal and private candidates are invigilated at our premises.
We are registered as an international examination centre with Cambridge and Edexcel.

SCIENCE PRACTICALS
Greene’s places emphasis on the science practicals that are carefully designed to meet the requirements of students’ courses and to improve their understanding of A level topics as well as expanding their broader scientific knowledge. We ensure that our practicals are both engaging and relevant and that they will help students to achieve their grades, prepare them for science at university, stimulate their intellectual curiosity and equip them to explore the processes that shape the world.

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE
Top international universities require a certain command of English in order for a university place to be offered, regardless of the student’s other academic abilities and qualifications.
In addition to providing students with intensive tuition in English writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills. Greene’s offers rigorous and frequent testing to measure progress and highlight areas for development. This is achieved through weekly, short online tests and more substantial trial examinations at key milestones.
Greene’s also believes that providing an education in British culture and current affairs is a key element in fully grasping the language; this package therefore also includes seminars on British history, literature and customs.
“Students learn extremely well, developing good skills which they can apply to good effect.”
