About Me

Hello, and welcome to my profile! My name is Thomas, and I'm a Neurosomatic Therapist and TEFL-Certified English Teacher with a genuine love of people, cuisine, travel, languages and all things aesthetic.

I'm here to help you become FLUENT in English through engaging, fun, and improvisational conversations on important topics.

What makes my teaching method different?

For starters, you didn't learn your native language by studying grammar books, and you could speak and understand extremely well before you ever knew anything about grammar or writing!

Research has shown that attempting to learn a foreign language by drilling grammar and verb conjugations is ineffective, and that the best way to acquire any language is through comprehensible input.

Comprehensible input includes any video, audio, and/or written materials which are challenging enough to push you into new linguistic territory, but easy enough that you understand that majority of the content.

By using this natural method, you'll learn in English in the same way you learned your own native language - by actively listening and speaking!

Before each session, I will send you a link to Google Docs, where you will be able to see all of our corrections and notes. You can then use your personalized document to review everything that we have discussed.

IMPORTANT:
***Please note, my lessons are for adults with a level of B1 or higher. You will benefit more from the lessons if you are already able to maintain a basic level of conversation.

Thank you!
