About Me

(This is the text from my video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOpUdzxIYm4)

Hi, I’m Peter from Canada and I teach English.

You can think of Canadian English as a perfect balance between British and American English - perfect for the international learner!

My qualifications are a Bachelor of Education degree specializing in Teaching English as a Second Language, with many years of experience working with students from around the world.

Working with you, I can personalize our lessons to your needs and goals and offer you many opportunities to practice speaking English through role plays, discussions, or pronunciation practice.

With interesting materials, such as video clips, podcasts, or short news articles, we will build your vocabulary, develop your conversational skills, and increase your understanding of English as it’s used in the real world.

Do you want to feel more comfortable expressing yourself in English?

Do you want to feel confident that you are being understood by other people?

Together, we can do it!!

This is Peter from Canada saying, “See you soon!”
