DESIGN YOUR EDUCATION. TRANSFORM YOUR FUTURE.
At Greene’s College Oxford in Estoril, our educational philosophy is based on a simple assumption: if a student’s course is tailored to suit their unique qualities and needs, they are more likely to be successful.
Whether students are sitting A levels for the first time or re-taking, we are committed to putting students first; fostering self-confidence, responsibility and independence. We accomplish this in three ways: our inspirational tutors, the Tutorial method of learning, and the Greene’s student online resource. Tuition can also be delivered online promoting accessible learning for all, regardless of the location.
Greene’s is not an ‘examination factory’. Our academic approach includes a blend of small group tutorials, with instant feedback on learning, and one-to-one weekly personal tutoring sessions to ensure all students have personalised guidance and feedback. Our wider curriculum includes regular Leadership sessions to prepare students for their future careers alongside a wide variety of student-led societies.

WHAT MAKES GREENE'S COLLEGE OXFORD STAND OUT?
Two Colleges - One Vision
Greene’s College Oxford invites students to enrol at any time throughout the year, liberating students from a one-size-fits-all curriculum, as well as the fixed academic calendar. Our students are encouraged to identify clearly their academic goals and take strategic steps to achieve them. This means enrolling in the courses that support their objectives, and none of the classes that do not.
Learning without boundaries
Students at Greene’s College Oxford have access to Greene’s Online, a custom-built online platform, where they can upload their work and review their assessments. Students receive live feedback and can track their progress independently in their own time. Study is in person or online, so geography will not limit academic development.
We also have a college in Oxford, England. Find out more about it here.
We teach through the tutorial method to encourage analytical and creative thinking. This approach to learning is defined by one-on-one tuition, taught in the Socratic style, with an emphasis on independent study. Our students find they can retain more information when guided by their own curiosity – and it provides a more seamless transition from A levels to university life.
We work with only the very best academic tutors. Each one has achieved academic excellence in their field and every tutorial radiates this enthusiasm. Our tutors are selected for their ability to convey the required information in a meaningful manner and, with the help of our Personal Tutors, they inspire students to seek answers for themselves. With almost 55 years’ experience, Greene’s has the tools to empower students to succeed.

Since relocating to Oxford in 2006, Shelley has tutored Mandarin Chinese with many private students from early years to adults and from beginner to advanced levels. As a language tutor, Shelley believes that it is very important to form a good relationship/bond with students. This way, the students look forward to their lessons, are more willing to listen and to interact and even to do homework, therefore they learn better and quicker.

M. Pharm. (Porto), PGCE (Buckingham)
Mrs. Din has benefitted from the British system of education, both in her home town of Porto, Portugal and in the U.K. Mrs. Din’s aim is not only to ensure that the students can understand and apply the underlying concepts behind the subject, but that they can also relate the same concepts and theories to the world in which they live, and so appreciate and enjoy the relevance of their studies.
