The Oxford Method


Unlike traditional tutoring services, the purpose of The Oxford Method is to not just prepare students for the various subject material they plan to study while at university, but to also instil and develop in our students the following skills through our courses provided below:

  • The development of critical thinking skills, argumentation style, and debate
    (both verbally and in written form)
  • How to research effectively, stepping away from university textbooks, replacing them with real academic books, articles, and journals written by top academic professionals
  • How to read, make sense of, analyse, and apply academic theory to their weekly essays
  • How to write academically to a high Oxford and Cambridge standard (which can be applied to any UK university)
  • Learn how to read, write, and submit their essays to tight weekly deadlines
  • How to manage their time by learning how to read large amounts of data and process it into smaller, bite-size pieces
  • Teach students to research and write material they have never studied before, getting them out of their comfort zones
  • Teach students to acknowledge their strengths and weaknesses and work on their personal development in each area
