Hi, I’m Peter from Canada and I teach English. My qualifications are a Bachelor of Education degree specializing in Teaching English as a Second Language, and many years of work experience with language learners here in Canada, and overseas as well. In 2019, I taught over 1,100 English classes online to clients in Latin America, Southeast Asia, Europe... all over the world!
Whether online or in-person, I believe contextual learning is extremely important: my clients need to be engaged as active and spontaneous users of the target language, which naturally includes expressing emotions and humour. I use video clips or short news articles to build vocabulary, elevate conversational skills, and increase your exposure to real-world English.
I enjoy helping learners speak English fluently, including pronunciation and accent perfection. In this respect, you can think of the Canadian English accent as a perfect balance between British and American English… perfect for the international learner!
I love travelling and always appreciate meeting people from other countries and different cultures. I speak French and conversational-level Spanish. I also really enjoy music, reading, and films, and these are often good discussion topics to begin our sessions with.
I look forward to working with you in providing the highest quality online language-learning experience. This is Peter from Canada saying, “Bye for now!”
