During the past 3 years as an ESL Trainer, I have given tens of thousands of hours of lessons, writing instruction, and workshops, working with hundreds students from all nationalities, ethnicities, countries, and professions through a variety of platforms and in physical classrooms. I have earned my 120-hour TESOL Certificate, from ITTT, where the coursework is 100% interchangeable with their 120-hour TEFL. I have also completed a Certification for Teaching Business English from ITTT. I specialize in developing major business skills, such as running meetings, presentations, negotiations, and interview preparation. This includes job and scholastic admission interviews, or if you are the person interviewing a candidate. I have developed a five part course, with the option of adding lessons as needed, and multiple lessons in a day. I also thoroughly correct papers and assignments for grammar and vocabulary improvement. I enjoy working with business professionals, university students, and students motivated by the idea of self-improvement.

I am a fully qualified English Teacher from Bristol, England. I hold a Masters with Distinction in History from the University of Birmingham and have lectured at Kings College London and University College London (UCL). Prior to this I received full training and certification as a teacher in the UK. I've been teaching for years and I really love it. During my career I've gained lots of experience with all types of students and levels. I've had students who don't know the days of the week all the way up to students studying for the Cambridge Proficiency Exam. Presently I specialise in the intermediate and advanced levels, helping students to improve their level for professional purposes or to gain certificates to access higher education. Whatever the exact level of the student, my general approach is more or less the same. I am able to quickly ascertain a student's capability from a short conversation and use this to design a tailor-made plan of study. Depending on the needs of the student, this could include specific areas of grammar that need work or aspects of writing skills. Classes are heavily based in conversation practice and correction, with the necessary study elements taught at different points during the 60 minute talk. In this way, subjects can be covered with speed, with concise follow-up homework tasks reaffirming this knowledge gained in class - then ready for revision in the following session. My approach attempts to avoid the burden of language study with short, focused tasks as part of dynamic sessions. The combination of this with a tailor-made package of study enables the student to progress much more rapidly than in traditional group study. Furthermore, such a technique is particularly useful for online 1-on-1 learning, an area I have been working in exclusively for the last 3 years, delivering over 4,000 sessions! Finally, I strongly believe that students need to be relaxed and enjoying themselves to get the most from sessions. I endeavour to achieve this as a teacher by ensuring a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and through this, delivering dynamic and engaging sessions, pushing the student to achieve their full potential improve rapidly. Get in touch and we can work together to create a programme of learning that works for you and sees you progress with speed!

Hello. I'm David. I strongly recommend you choose a different teacher unless you're serious about learning a lot in a very few short weeks. Do you need to succeed in a job interview? I have an excellent track record in training my students to win in such situations. Do you need to pass IELTS, CAE, CPE, or any other exam? Do you need to massively improve your fluency and your confidence within the next 5 weeks? Do you have problems with your business which your expensive business consultants have scratched their heads about hopelessly for too long and to which you want practical, fast, no-nonsense solutions? Do you need to get your personal life in order and make a realistic plan to overcome personal obstacles and to make good, self-interested decisions? ...I have expertise and experience and a long, strong, robust list of success stories from my students which gives me the confidence to tell you this good news: your problems are now about to be solved, permanently. I have more than 20 years' experience teaching English to university students, business executives, nephrologists, diagnosticians, MBA professors, politicians, sports superstars and many other professionals. I am a trained, qualified clinical psychologist, specialized in motivational training, conflict resolution and problem-solving. I worked for 5 years at ESADE in Barcelona, teaching English For Business Professionals as well as CAE, CPE, FCE and other exam-preparation courses; I specialized in coaching executives to succeed in job interviews and I spent several years giving many individual MBA Professors one-to-one coaching to help them to be supremely confident and fluent in English when presenting to international groups of students on their executive education courses. I was a freelance teacher in Spain for many years, teaching at various companies and for various language schools. I have organized and imparted teacher-training courses for highly-qualified, experienced, elite business English teachers as well as for novice, entry-level teachers. In recent years I moved to Vietnam, and I now live in Hanoi, where I work as a business consultant, teacher-trainer and English teacher; I also tutor students over the internet. My current online students are from China, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Brazil, Switzerland, Taiwan, Spain, Korea, Poland, and other countries. I enjoy teaching, and my focus is always on adapting, selecting and creating personalized materials as well as organizing tasks in order to achieve your personal study goals and life objectives. I prioritize speaking above the other three skills unless you tell me you have a different preference. In my opinion, speaking is the most important skill. I always get my students talking right from the beginning of each lesson, and we talk almost constantly during each lesson, while we are studying vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation together. Writing is also important (because writing well is excellent preparation for speaking well) and I always offer my students writing tasks for optional homework; and the writing task is always based on something we had a conversation about in class, so that it's an opportunity for you to get some more practice of that vocabulary and grammar which we studied that day. But I understand that everyone is busy, so homework is always optional. If you don't have time to do the homework, then that's okay! Don't get stressed out about it. Book a lesson with me today, right now. See you soon.

My name is Mary and I have been teaching ESL for 7 years. I earned a Bachelor's degree in English from Ohio University (USA) in 2013 with a minor in Linguistics and a TEFL Certification. I then worked for a non-profit organization, Ethiopian Tewahedo Social Services, teaching English to refugees from all over the world. After this position, I traveled to Cuenca, Ecuador and taught for a non-profit organization, CEDEI, for a year and a half. Both job experiences I had in this field prior did not have a lot of opportunities for technology in the classroom but when I can I like to include articles, videos, speeches, use of Microsoft word in the classroom. I have now been teaching online for four years. I am very excited to continue teaching online to open up the possibilities to have a multi-media classroom. I also think that speaking and listening are the key to fluency and like to put a strong emphasis on speaking practice: debates, conversations, and presentations. I also have experience with teaching paragraph structure, essay structure, and different styles of essays. I have taught grammar at all levels, also. I try to keep classes interesting with a mixture of activities and with minimal stress but well-rounded knowledge of the language. I truly hope you'll take a look at my schedule and consider a trial lesson in which we can discuss your goals and a learning plan. My policy for missed lessons: I will wait 10 minutes for a student to arrive. If it is the first (or second for regular students) missed class and the student messages me with a reason, I will unschedule the lesson so that the student can reschedule. If this happens more than once or twice I will keep the payment for the wait time and preparation. I understand things happen, so I will forgive, once or twice of course, but I also prepare for the lessons and this is my full time job.

*Back in the UK. My name is Tom and I grew up in and around London, England. I am a native English teacher with 3 years experience. I studied at Imperial College London in South Kensington and have spent a lot of time exploring the city. From the parks and museums nearby to many of London’s other neighbourhoods and attractions. I have a degree in Geophysics and now employ my scientific mind to language teaching. I teach in a way that is effective, efficient and modern. I have a 160 hour TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate and teach private classes in person as well as online. My classes follow a structure that emphasises building on what we know and having clear goals. Classes will vary from student to student. Depending on what is required and in what time frame they are structured accordingly. Although we will set clear goals and learn based on those, my teaching style is relaxed enough to ensure lessons are enjoyable and rewarding for both teacher and student.
