Why study English online with me?

If you want a teacher with a lot of teaching expertise, then I’m right for you. With 20 years of total English teaching experience and 10 years of online teaching I have the professional background to get fantastic results with my English learners.

If you want a teacher who believes in making English lessons fun, interesting and challenging, then I’m right for you. For me, these are the three key features of the learning process. Lessons need to be fun, interesting and challenging and I put all my effort into creating that kind of lesson.

If you want a teacher who works to take the stress out of learning then I’m right for you. I believe in having a positive, supportive relationship with all my students and they will all tell you how patient I am as a teacher. I want my learners to be relaxed, to make mistakes and fall in love with English!

Community membership

I believe in providing added value for my online students so I have created an online forum community for my students in the site.

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. Download Skype for free from the Skype website.

Good Internet Connection

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 online English lessons.

A Gmail Account

A Gmail account

I share my lesson materials with students by using Google Drive. It will be more convenient for you if I use your Gmail address for this. If you don’t have one, please sign-up.

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

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

Feedback on your English

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

Communicative Methodology

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

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

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

Listen to your lesson again

It’s possible to listen to your lesson again via an MP3 file which I will share with you after the lesson. Helps you to understand more about your pronunciation and native speaker language.

Accessing Lesson Files

Accessing lesson files

I will create a Google Drive folder and share it with you via Gmail. You will access all lesson files and materials from this folder. All your lesson materials will be securely stored in the cloud!

Choose Webcam Or Not

Choose webcam or not

In my lessons, you can choose if you want to use a webcam in the lesson or not. During a lesson we can use the TeamViewer webcam which is a small window in the bottom of the screen.
