I'm a professional English teacher. I have a TEFL qualification and I have been teaching since 1999. My career started in Japan where I was a conversational English teacher. Within a year I had become the headmaster of a private English school serving 400 students. In 2014 I returned to the UK where I established an online presence. In 2016 I became an MBA consultant preparing students for the rigorous admissions test and interview. If you are preparing for the VIVA interview, I can help with that too. I'm a published author with many years experience proofreading. I'd be happy to have a look at your essays. I am very patient, and you can ask me all the questions you want, as many times as you want, until you understand very well. Let me know what you need and how I can help you, and I will be here for you. I will do my best to help you achieve your goals of becoming fluent in English. I'll introduce a bit more information about me. I am British and I live in Bournemouth. I'm a B1 speaker of Japanese. After a career in the civil service in England, I travelled to New Zealand where I resided for 8 years. I attended university there and studied computer science at Massey University. In New Zealand and then moved into the private sector where I gained experience in the technology market and the insurance industry. In 1998, I resumed my education and took a CELTA course to pursue a dream of teaching English in Japan. After gaining some experience in a school in Saitama, I opened my own schools in Chiba and Tokyo and became a registered Japanese corporation. I employed 10 Japanese support staff and several foreign teachers. I ran those schools for 16 years and taught hundreds of students of all ages and levels. In my downtime, I like to watch movies and read books. I’m the author of the book Fluency Secrets and I’m writing some new books on English language study. I love mountain biking, running and swimming. One day I would like to do a triathlon. See you online!

I am from America and have been teaching English for several years. My focus is Pronunciation, Accent Reduction, IELTS, Business English, Preparation for Job Interviews, Simple Conversation and Public Speaking for intermediate and advanced students. "Practice makes perfect," and increases self confidence in order to feel comfortable in a conversation with a native English speaker. I would like to work with you on your goals, and be a catalyst for you to move forward in your dream. Learning a language is not just about the text book, but it is also about having fun in our lessons, where we can both work together in a partnership to achieve a common goal and see improvement. If this is what you are looking for, then I invite you to schedule a lesson with me. I now live in Southeast Asia and work with students of all ages and levels. My TEFL with a TESOL Level 4 certificate has enabled me to work in universities, as well as with business owners. Working with students of the same culture has given me the insight to compare the languages and understand why certain sounds are more difficult. It's all about retraining the brain. Breaking the old habit, coming in with the new. Learning how the tongue, lips and jaw should work together in unison for clear pronunciation. In America, I worked with an adult learning class where students were from many countries. Tweaking my ears for several pronunciation differences, because of various cultures present in one class, I gained the experience of listening to numerous accents and learning about their differences in understanding letters, sounds and the how to of correct pronunciation. I have an extensive background in social services, health care and fitness, and the healing arts. I volunteered with the Peace Corps in Honduras, Central America and was immersed in their culture and learned Spanish. I understand the difficulty of learning a language and how frustrating it can be when they still don't understand you!:-) I now am learning Vietnamese, and it is not easy!:-) It is important in learning any language, to have confidence in order to take the step to speak with a foreigner. I am here to motivate and inspire you to take you to the next level.  Share with me your goals and motivations. Is this for a job interview, IELTS test, conversation, business needs, or public speaking?  We will talk about the fears of speaking, and get you up to speed with better pronunciation so you will feel more confident.  Set up a schedule, understanding your timeline, if there is one.  Create an Action Plan I want to help you to feel confident in speaking clearly and loudly, so others can hear you! I will do my best to give you all the tools you need to progress and feel confident in any situation. Looking forward to working with you!

********************* CONVERSATION €17 ********************* ------------------------------------------ CLASS €24 ------------------------------------------ I am an English-Spanish translator and teacher currently living in Spain. I first started teaching at NIU, Illinois, USA, as a T.A. and, once I graduated from my Master's degree I started to work as a Court interpreter and translator. After a few years I came to Spain, where I am teaching English and Spanish, while I still work as a translator (specialized in Psychology). Being a translator helps me better understand the process of learning a foreign language as an adult, and develop my teaching and language coaching techniques. Let me show you how - let's build your English (or Spanish) skills together and improve what you already have. You will enjoy learning with me! Soy profesora de inglés americano y vivo en España. Empecé dando clase de español en la universidad de NIU, en Illinois, en EEUU, pero me vine para España, donde llevo varios años dando clase de inlgés a españoles. Soy traductora, así que puedo comunicarme en español cuando sea necesario: a veces la traducción es una herramienta muy útil en una clase de inglés. Prueba unas clases conmigo y verás cómo aprendes. Una vez que conozca tu nivel, puntos débiles que haya que trabajar, tus necesidades específicas y tus preferencias, trabajaremos juntos para conseguir lo que hasta ahora no has conseguido: empezar a hablar, a comunicarte en inglés y a ganar la confianza y soltura que necesitas. Y, a partir de ahí, ir subiendo de nivel hasta donde te propongas llegar.

** January 2019 special: Buy one single class and get 50% off the second class. Do you need to improve your speaking skills? My lessons are all conversation and speaking based that focus on enhancing speaking skills and clear communication. My passion is teaching students essential communication skills in English, but they can also be translated for use in your native language. Exceptional communication skills are one of the most important qualifications that companies and organizations are looking for. I use a variety of non-standard activities to achieve this. In addition to teaching, I also do personal coaching. I believe that whether you are applying for a job, writing an English test or just trying to speak with assurance, the most important thing is to have confidence in your ability and that you can achieve your goals. I am happy to announce that I am now certified to offer personal coaching with my lessons! In what situation can coaching be beneficial? *Establishing strategies and taking action towards achieving goals *Gain personal awareness and insight *Receive support for improving specific skills such as communication, conflict management, public speaking and so on. *Overcome obstacles, insecurities and low confidence *Reduce stress and live happier lives For students requiring more traditional lessons, I am offering lessons that focus on IELTS preparation, Job, University and Medical Residency Interviews. In addition, I am presently writing a book so I can help students to improve their writing skills whether it’s a resume, cover letter or a piece of creative writing My approach understanding, patient and fun! **For student's from Asian countries, please message me for more suitable evening and morning class times.
