About Me

Hello! I'm David. I'm a native speaker from Perth, Australia. I have been teaching English to students in France and Portugal for the last two years, I'm TEFL Certified and have completed a degree in Commerce (Business). I teach general and business English from beginner level to advanced and also have helped students with exam preparation.

Everyone learns English for a different reason. I'm always interested in the story of the students. and the best way to help them get to their goals in speaking English. The lessons are balanced between speaking and pronunciation, the correct grammar to use and using vocabulary the way native speakers do. Hopefully I can help to advance your language for use in your social, professional or academic life.
