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.

Why take online English lessons?

Studying English online is a great way to improve 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.

Why I teach English online

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.

Fun, interesting and challenging lessons!

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.

A patient teacher

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 to start

Lessons expensive?

What you need


Use Skype to talk to me in a lesson. This will give us the best audio quality in our lessons so we can hear each other clearly. Download Skype 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 online 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 it works

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 feedback on your vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. I will make notes in a lesson document which I send after the lesson.

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.

Flexible lesson length

30 minutes = £15
45 minutes = £22.50
60 minutes = £30
