About Me

Improve your English for travel, work, research, or study!

Hello! I’m Alison. My lessons will help you to:
*communicate better in English
*become more confident
*improve your fluency and pronunciation

I will find out what you need, your level and how you use English, so our classes are focused and useful. Together we will create a safe, relaxed space where it's OK to make mistakes.

As well as being a teacher, I am an experienced writer and editor. I know the English language very well. I've been a student psychotherapist and I give workshops in intercultural communication skills, so I'm patient, encouraging and supportive. I try to get the best out of you.

I grew up near London but I’ve lived in northern England and the USA, and now I live in Barcelona, Spain. I can speak Spanish and I’m learning Catalan. A long time ago I learned French and German, but I can’t remember much now. I know how it feels to learn a foreign language!
