About Me

Want to improve your English quickly and effectively? I can help you! I am a highly qualified and experienced English language tutor, based in Oxford, UK. My qualification is CELTA.

I offer great value for money also, as my lessons extend much further than the hour we spend together. Let me explain..

People learn English very quickly and naturally when they immerse themselves in the language. This involves watching films or TV programmes in English with subtitles; listening to UK radio and podcasts or reading articles and novels.

My lessons support you during your life at work and at home or when travelling or socialising and having fun. Your speaking; reading; grammar; listening and writing skills are my focus.

This is how a typical session works:

Step 1: Your structured lesson. I use a combination of videos; topical news articles; text book reviews; listening websites; games and puzzles.

Step 2: I set homework which reaffirms the point learned in the session - whether grammar; vocabulary; pronunciation; reading; listening or writing.

Step 3: You choose which film; book or radio show you are going to concentrate on until our next lesson.

Step 4: When we next meet, we talk about the things you are unsure of.

Result: Together, we constantly assess and improve your weaker areas. You become a happy and confident English speaker!

This system is enjoyable and really works. I have taught students from all over the world and spent time teaching in Spain. I am led by your requirements, whether you need to start as a beginner or prepare for a job interview or complex presentation, I am qualified in all areas with a specialism in Business English.

So what are we waiting for? Make a coffee, pull up a chair, log on and let's get started!
