Sobre mí

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. Since 2019, I've taught over 2,200 English classes online to clients in Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia... 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. Hobbies 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!”
