About me

My name is Jonathan and I’m an online English teacher from Britain. I have been giving high quality online English lessons using Skype since 2005. My online English lessons have helped learners from all over the world to become better language users.

Studying English online is a great way to improve your language skills. It’s convenient because you can study from home via computer. But it’s more than that. Studying with me means you focus exactly on your learning needs with an experienced language teacher who can help you to improve all your English skills.

I work as an online English teacher because I’m passionate about working with people from all over the world to help them achieve their dreams. I also love working with technology to develop innovative new teaching approaches. I don’t see my job as work but as pure enjoyment!

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!

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 make a Google Drive folder and share it with you via Gmail. You can access all lesson files and materials from the folder. All 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.
