Easy online scheduling system

My teaching availability is from 9am to 8.30pm UK time on weekdays and from 12pm to 7pm UK time on weekends. To book a lesson, you simply visit the schedule page (password protected) in my website. Choose the day and time you want to have a lesson and send me your booking! You can also send me any special requests you have for that day’s lesson. That’s it! It’s very simple and very easy to use.

After you book a lesson, you will receive a notification email. I will also share my Google calendar with you so you can see all your lesson bookings in one place!

How to start

Contact me for a free demo

Try before you buy with a free demo via Skype. In the demo, you can see how everything works and we can talk more about your learning objectives. Visit the Contact page to schedule your free demo.

Schedule the demo

After I receive your application, I will reply to you via email to schedule your demo class. I will also add you to my Skype contacts list so that we’ll be ready to talk to each other in the demo.

Download TeamViewer

TeamViewer is the program you will need to be able to see the lesson as a virtual classroom from my computer. It’s a free program that you can download from the links at the bottom of my site.
What you need to study online

Skype installed on your system

Use Skype to talk to me in a lesson. This will give us the best possible audio quality in our lessons so that we can hear each other clearly. If you don’t have Skype, download it for free from the Skype website.

Good Internet connection

You will need a good, stable Internet connection. When we meet for our demo class, we can test your Internet connection to see if it’s fast enough for Skype English lessons.

Headset microphone

A headset microphone will give you the best possible audio quality in your lessons. It will be much better if you use a headset and not the built-in microphone on your tablet or PC.
How my lessons work

Fully customised lessons

My lessons will be 100% customised to your learning needs. This means you will only practise what you need to practise and nothing else. Customised lessons mean you take control of your learning.

Feedback on your English

During a lesson, I will listen to how you use English and give you lots of feedback on your vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. I will make notes for you in the lesson document.

Communicative methodology

My teaching is based on communication with the learner. This means you will be practising your speaking skills at all times in a lesson and learning to improve skills in a natural context.

Real-time classroom

See the lesson in real-time using TeamViewer. Experience interactive learning by seeing my computer screen on yours. A visual way of learning that’s better than just using Skype alone.

60 minute lessons

Get better value for your money in my system with 60-minute English lessons! Most online English teachers will only offer you 45 or 50 minute lessons. More learning value for money!

Listen to your lesson again

In my system, it’s possible for you to listen to your lessons again from an MP3 file which I will share with you after the lesson. This will help you to understand where you are improving and what you need to learn.
