Pinnacle Academy Was Built for Online Learning

As a reaction to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, many educational institutions were quickly forced to go online. This resulted in unprepared teachers doing their best to make their in-person material work in the digital space. This quick transition was not ideal, and in many ways individuals' learning was affected negatively.

  • Pinnacle Academy is Different!

    Our Response

    We saw these issues and knew there was something we could do about it. All of our materials have been created intentionally for an online English classroom. Our experienced teachers have been trained and educated, not just in education and language acquisition, but specifically in teaching students effectively online.

  • Student centered

    From Start to Finish

    We are student centered. Our teachers allow time in their digital classrooms so students not only learn English, but also get to know their fellow language-learning students and their teachers on a deep level. Our teachers take their students' individual needs seriously and curate their courses to help each student receive a personalized and holistic English language education. They are available for questions, comments, and practice, just as an in-person instructor would be.

  • on-demand

    More than Following a Script

    Because our teachers are doing more than following a script, they are able to provide real-time, helpful feedback. When a student is taking an entirely live course, or one that has on-demand components, they are working with a real person who gives clarity and further recommendations. Unlike many on-demand services, students aren’t just told their answer is wrong; error correction is used as a learning experience to explain WHY the answer is incorrect and how they can improve.

  • Feedback driven

    Experienced Teachers

    A natural byproduct of being student centered and feedback driven is that we provide opportunities for incidental learning. This means that as you go through your courses with Pinnacle Academy, your teachers are looking out for the things they can teach in the moment. Perhaps they notice a word that needs some pronunciation help and while that particular course may not be focused on pronunciation, they will take the time to help anyway. All of our teachers have worked overseas and have experience with international students and communication. They are experienced and ready to address student needs in the moment rather than sticking to the lesson at the expense of student learning.

  • Best online learning experience

Conversational English

Our Conversational English classes include small groups (12-15) of motivated students from all over the world who want to improve their English. If you enjoy engaging activities, group projects, and games, you will love our courses. Your teacher will give you individualized feedback and provide lots of opportunities to talk and share during each class. Your command of English and your confidence will both grow as you enjoy the lessons on neighborhoods, social media, traveling, culture, and more.


If you have a group of friends or classmates (2-4 students) who all want to work on their conversational English skills, then group conversational English tutoring is for you. These sessions will be designed according to your interests and needs. Your tutor will lead your group through a variety of fun and engaging activities and discussions, as well as give each member of the group individualized feedback and ideas for continued improvement.

Conversational English is all about communication. In both Conversational English classes and tutoring, we will focus on expanding your vocabulary, sharpening your pronunciation, and enhancing your grammar and listening skills so that you can communicate with other English speakers with more clarity and confidence. Your teacher will focus on various topics that will be both helpful and interesting to talk about in English. Your teacher will provide you with ample feedback and suggestions for how you can continue to improve both your fluency and spoken English as well as give you numerous opportunities in each session to speak and share.

English for Academic Purposes is for students who want to study or use English in an academic setting. This class will focus on the skills and language functions you will need to thrive in an academic English setting. You will discuss culture, learn academic skills, and expand your listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills through interactive lectures, discussions, projects, and activities that will prepare you for academic success.

Comprehensive English combines the four core language skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. This course helps you holistically improve your command of English. This class features the National Geographic World Link textbook and will cover topics and culture through interactive media and materials catered to online learning.
