About Me

Hi all! I'm currently accepting new students, so please get in touch. My goal is to help you reach the confidence and fluency of a native speaker!

Nice to meet you! I’m Jake, a native English teacher from the United Kingdom. I’m TEFL-qualified with advanced degrees in languages and translation, and have been teaching English for several years. In 2016 I made the move to teaching English online, and I’ve never looked back.

My students come from all over the world, and have a huge variety of different goals. I like to adjust my sessions to suit the needs of each individual student, to ensure that you get the most out of our time together. Whether you’re learning English for your IELTS or TOEFL exam, for your professional development, or simply out of a love of the language, we can create a plan together to reach those goals. I look forward to meeting you, and wish you the best on your quest to master English! – Jake.

*PLEASE NOTE 1: I have different rates for teaching children, so if you would like me to teach your child, please let me know in advance of the lesson. Many thanks.

*PLEASE NOTE 2: From 11/01 I will be teaching in Bangkok, Thailand, and so my schedule will change quite drastically from this time. If you're looking for a long-term teacher, please check my calendar from these dates as well, to make sure that my schedule works well for you :)
