With a sister company that has over 10 years’ experience in delivering award-winning summer courses, we have a superb selection of qualified tutors in our network.
We only work with the very best tutors. Those who are truly expert in their subject field and have a passion for sharing their knowledge with curious minds.
Having been selected from some of the world’s learning universities, they specialise in delivering a personalised teaching experience, adjusting their material to you, and what you want to achieve.
Oxford Summer Courses has been running courses in Oxford for more than a decade, and during that time they saw something special happen when they connected an academically curious student with an expert tutor who’s passionate about their subject.
Introducing them to a subject they might not have had the chance to study at school yet, and giving them a taste of how it’s studied at a world-leading university, has a lasting effect on the aspirations and motivations of the students who study with them.
They return home excited to take the next steps in their academic career, and motivated to achieve more having been exposed to renowned university-style teaching.
The problem is, Oxford Summer Courses can only welcome a certain number of people to Oxford, Cambridge and their other courses each year. And they firmly believe nothing should prevent you experiencing the exhilaration of tutorial teaching.
That’s why they took the key elements of their in-person courses - a connection with a world-class tutor, exposure to new and exciting subject matter, and an introduction to university-style learning - and brought them all online.
And so, Melio was born. With personalised one-on-one learning with expert tutors, you’re guaranteed a truly exceptional online learning experience. Wherever you are.
Take a look at what two of the first ever Melio students had to say about their online learning experience:
‘This was an experience like no other. I had loads of interaction with my tutor, as well as preparatory reading and tasks. It was an amazing learning opportunity.’ - Caya
‘Getting the comforts of being at home, and learning from the best tutors from Oxbridge was the best part. Along with that, time flexibility was the coolest factor...I could continue with my normal routine while learning a subject I love from the best tutors worldwide.’ - Tanya
