I provide structured English lessons, which involve working on grammar, speaking and listening skills, reading activities, plus writing exercises (if you're interested in that). I also help students to expand their vocabulary and improve their pronunciation.
My lessons involve self study, so you get more English practice, than just the time in lessons.
I teach students who need to study grammar areas or would like to refresh their grammar knowledge and we practise using the structures in an interactive way through speaking in lessons and clarify any doubts. I also help students to improve their speaking skills and expand their vocabulary by focusing on different topics in lessons,
I work well with students who feel nervous or lack confidence speaking in English. I am a very patient teacher, who provides a relaxed welcoming environment in my classes and if this describes you, I can help you to feel more confident about speaking in English.
I will correct your mistakes in lessons, in written and verbal form and will make you aware of your strengths and weaknesses with English and the areas that need to be worked on.
**Unfortunately I don't teach children, because it isn't an area I specialise in.**
¡Hola a todos! Soy Mary de Manchester, Reino Unido. Llevo 10 años enseñando inglés como lengua extranjera y soy profesora certificada (CELTA). Tengo mucha experiencia dictando clases a los hispanohablantes y entiendo los problemas comunes en que se puede fallar con el inglés, por ejemplo la pronunciación. Dicto clases desde nivel principiante hasta avanzado. Soy muy paciente y mis clases son muy interactivas. La enfasis en mis clases es que los estudiantes hablen en inglés todo lo posible inmediatamente y que sigan mejorando. íSaludos!
In the trial lesson, we'll have some general conversation to get to know each other better, talk about your learning goals and I'll describe my teaching methodology, to see if I'm a suitable teacher for you.
