Vocabulary Development - English Tutors & Teachers
Hello, my name is Adam. I was born, grew up, and still live near Liverpool, in England. I am a native English speaker, and I do not have a particularly strong regional accent, which helps students. I actually taught English to speakers of other languages informally for several years before I considered doing it professionally. In about 2005, I started teaching academic English to two friends from Turkey, who spoke Turkish and Kurdish as their first languages. I discovered that this was extremely enjoyable, because I love languages, and enjoy learning about other cultures. I have since gained TESOL qualifications from Arizona State University, in TESOL foundational principles, theories of second language acquisition, plus lesson design and assessment. I am now paid for something I gain such pleasure from. This is a great privilege. I have worked as a private tutor to students living in the Toxteth area of Liverpool. Many of these students are recent migrants to the UK, and speak a wide variety of first languages, including Arabic, French, and diverse African languages. I currently teach English to refugees and asylum seekers in Liverpool, on a voluntary basis. It is my honour to help people feel welcome in England. I am open to teaching students however they like - and can provide intricate, detailed, formal lesson plans if that is what a student considers most appropriate to their needs. I am also very keen on having informal conversations - 'a chat' - with students, and providing English language guidance as that conversation progresses. I am very willing to help students learn to read or write better in English, or improve their English listening skills, or prepare for a specific real-life situation in an English-speaking country - for example, an interview, using transport, or shopping. Conversely, we can have an informal discussion, about a subject that the student finds interesting. That way, they can learn from me, and I can learn from them. We both emerge from the experience knowing more about English, but also about the world in which we live.
Do you want to learn English in a relaxed and informal fashion and quickly reach your goal of speaking like a native English speaker? I can help you achieve this by creating a tailor-made course based on your objectives, experience and abilities. Whether you just want to chat and improve your English conversation skills or prepare for your IELTS examination, I am the teacher for you. My students say I help them relax and put them at ease and this makes learning a pleasure rather than a chore. Book a trial class, with no obligation, and let the journey begin.

Hi I specialize in teaching Conversational English Fluency and IELTS Exam Preparation. I've been teaching English full time for more than 4 years to people from all over the world with diverse backgrounds and goals. My lessons encompass a range of skill-building activities with a focus on conversational fluency. For students studying for the IELTS exam, I have developed a complete course to help you achieve a band score of 7+. I’ve helped many students accomplish their goals; getting a new job, passing an exam, moving to a foreign country and more. I have had the opportunity to work with students, scientists, professors, computer scientists, analysts, business owners, doctors, advertisers, bankers, actors, directors and others. I care about my student’s success. Students with dedicated teachers stay motivated and learn faster. I encourage my students to engage in conversation, take risks and have fun. I try to keep our classes interesting and more importantly, authentic. The improvements you make in class should carry over into the “real world.” My goal is to help you reach fluency by giving you the guidance and feedback that you need, improving your English and increasing your confidence so that you'll be prepared for any situation! Throughout our conversations, you will receive constant feedback and corrections on words and phrases that you have trouble with, along with personalized suggestions on how to improve! I’ll help you to speak confidently, fluently and naturally. If you have any questions, just send me a message!
Hey, I'm Becky! Currently I live in the UK. Before that I lived in Colombia, Vietnam, Thailand and Australia! I have been teaching online and in the classroom for over 3 years now, how time flies. I love teaching, I love talking to people and I find the details of language and culture fascinating. I have taught in many different situations, from big classes of 40 7 year old pupils in Thailand, to 1 on 1 online classes with people from Russia, Serbia, Spain, Venezuela, Iran, Italy...online teaching in endlessly fun. I like to get to know new students through conversation practice, focusing on topics such as family, jobs, hobbies, travel, politics, or anything the student wishes to discuss. Then after our first meeting, together we can build a more focused programme to suit your needs and desires as a student. Or, we can simply practice conversation together, which is always fun. I also offer my students specific tutoring for test preparation and revision for exams. I help my students to improve their knowledge and understanding of English grammar and most importantly, my students should feel more confident using English in everyday situations. I can help my students to improve their skills in all areas. For example, with conversational english it is important to understand and be able to use - Phrasal verbs - Idioms - All basic tenses - 'Bad' english (lazy english used by native speakers) Good luck in finding a suitable teacher, don't be too shy to book a trial class, hopefully see you soon!
Do you need to improve your speaking skills? I am an experienced teacher that can help you increase your speaking abilities. 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 these skills 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. Furthermore, as the world moves forward after these difficult times, the need for higher-level communication will be in demand. I use a variety of non-standard activities to achieve this. Additionally, I believe that whether you are applying for a job, writing an English test or just trying to speak with assurance, it is essential to have confidence! I use coaching techniques to achieve this. 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 is patient, fun and super positive! 我希望能幫助學生在商業、英語考試、旅遊和個人發展上都能順暢的用英文溝通。我會以輕鬆快樂的學習方式，幫助你們在英語會話技巧上更有自信。 ________________________________________________________________________ 我希望能帮助学生在商业、英语考试、旅游和个人发展上都能顺畅的用英文沟通。我会以轻松快乐的学习方式，帮助你们在英语会话技巧上更有自信。
