We are very satisfied with GSP and the teachers. Everything is working smoothly; book deliveries, fast replies from the teacher, and the lessons being customized to the ability of the student and the regular school schedule.

GSP programs and methods have proven to be highly successful. We teach students attending leading international schools and universities across the globe via Skype and email from the comfort of their homes.

Our strength lies in providing a comprehensive distance learning solution comprising clear instruction, targeted feedback, reading lists, contact with the school, and customized support in a multi-cultural environment. 

GSP’s focus is what is best for the student and you are always there for the student as well as the parents.

GSP also supports students with special reading and writing needs.

Our team consist of certified Swedish teachers with extensive international experience. New teachers go through a rigorous recruitment and mentoring process and GSP provides annual training to each teacher. They are all background checked, so you can feel safe online.

Most satisfied with the tailored homework to the student’s specific needs. In addition, the lessons are of high quality and time is used efficiently, which adds substantial value to the knowledge and development of the language. The teacher is always open and willing to listen and make sure to provide relevant support and homework. It is distance learning and the communication is through Skype, which we were a little worried about, but it has proven to work fine! The syllabus is very well structured and solid.
