    Question How to call a place to learn somthing

    Hello, everyone. I am planning to teach English to children and adults at home in Japan.
    So, I expect the number of students will not be so many.
    Now I am thinking about naming the place to offer English lessons.
    In Japan, we usually use the word "Kyoshistu" which means a place to learn something, but the size is much smaller than school.
    How would you call this kind of place?
    I am looking forward to hearning from you.
    Lynn

    We use the word 'home'- you haveteachers who go to the students' homes and if they come to you, we still use that word.

    why not "clinic"? it's not ordinary. But doesn't it sound nice and healthy?
    "Lynn's English clinic"
