This book provides an analysis of the problems of teaching students on a one-to-one basis as opposed to teaching groups of students. The book covers a wide range of topics in this field and explains learner needs analysis and learner profiles, especially the student's current use of English and the reason for taking a one-to-one course; course planning; techniques which are specific to one-to-one teaching; techniques which don't work with one-to-one teaching; using the learner as the resource for teaching; together with the advantages of teaching students on a one-to-one basis as opposed to teaching in a group.

The structure is quite clear here, headings, bulletpoints, text boxes to illustrate sample documents (most of them quite useful, but other titles do a better job at making them actually photocopiable). As for the subject matter, the book is very thorough and will take you through the stages of the 1-1 learning process. Apart from the usual suspects - lesson planning, needs analysis, giving feedback and recommendations - there's a chapter here on homestay teaching, which was refreshing.
The problem is - that's about the only fresh thing. The rest is exactly what you would expect, and nothing you wouldn't. No big ideas, no fresh approaches. I read this book and I found it hard to name one inspiring thing about it - but maybe that's because I wasn't a novice teacher.
Buy if you've been out of one-to-one teaching for years and need a good, solid revision to beat you into shape.
Buy if you've never taught one-to-one before and enjoy being thoroughly prepared in advance.
Buy if you're a homestay teacher - not just for the one chapter, but for the other ones as well.
Avoid if you're looking for new ideas and fresh perspectives on one-to-one language teaching.
Very useful book!
