Many people think that learning online isn’t as effective as face to face, but they’re wrong!

E-Learning is quickly becoming the most popular method of learning.

The Research Institute of America found that eLearning increases retention rates 25% to 60% while retention rates of face-to-face training are very low in comparison: 8% to 10%.
This is because with eLearning students have more control over the learning process as well as the opportunity to revisit the training as needed.

Research shows that the quickest way to learn a language is to speak it. Hence, my approach is a communicative one (lots of talking!) Also, on the spot correction of pronunciation errors. This helps to stop the recurrence of ingrained mistakes. Tried and tested exercises focusing on intonation and rhythm to help you to sound like a native. I like to use lots of media (such as video clips of native speakers) to improve your listening skills. I also explain reasons why you don't understand certain things.

Reading & Writing

Reading is an excellent and underrated way to improve grammar and vocabulary. We will read newspaper articles and any other relevant materials and discuss them. If you need to improve your writing then I will proofread and correct it for you, including academic writing for University/College courses, exams etc.

Role Play

Role play is an effective tool for practicing real life situations, such as, job interviews, doctor / dentist appointments, renting a property and many more day to day challenges faced in a foreign country. We can role play any situation you need.


Due to my years of experience in public speaking and delivering courses, I can build your confidence by using simple techniques and tried and tested methods, helping you to reach your full potential. My adaptable and relaxed approach will help you with your presentations, meetings, public speeches or interviews. My background in I.T and design has proved to be beneficial when helping my clients make their presentations more effective and dynamic and has boosted their confidence as a result.

" Del mentio­ned that I've improv­ed a lot in every se­ssion of the English skills(listening, reading, writing, spe­aking) and now I feel confident and comf­ortable in English more than ever. Addit­ionally, I've finally got enough score of IELTS (6) to study in a English country. When I first started lessons with Del, I was really bad in every sections of En­glish but he first tried to fix the fund­amental of making so­und such as ton-unit, intonation, rhythm. Personally, making sound in a way that native speakers do is the key to success for English speaker and you may notice that it's not just for the speaking. Furthermore, it was really great to be able to discuss about what to learn or how to advance every time, Del guides me using various ways through all his knowl­edge or resources. If I struggle with so­mething, he gives pr­actical solutions or resources so that I could eventually de­al with it. Lastly, one of the things I like is that each standard stud­ying time(1 hour) is really adequate amo­unt of time for aski­ng, recap, practicing together. You know what? "Have you ever lived in English country?" th­is is what I've been told a couple of ti­mes from people arou­nd me when I'm speak­ing English. I hope other people who want to really improve will be able to achi­eve in English with Del by just using th­eir computer with ca­mera and internet co­nnection at home. "


" After 9 years in UK I have finally decided to take english lessons, surfing on the web I have found and I have decided to give it a try. After only a couple of lessons with Del, my world is changed, he was able to share with me some complex concepts in a super easy way and most important thing to me, without spending time reading long documents or memorising rules. Del is without any doubt a highly professional english teacher, his lessons are friendly and very enjoyable, you can apply his teachings immediately. I am very confident to say that If you really want to dramatically improve your english and/or simply boost your talking skills, Del is the solution for you! "


" Del is great teacher with big experience. He helped me improve my English specially Common English. I am glad to know him. Thanks for all Del 😉 "


" Just let u know you are a wonderful teacher and the way you teach,help me learn a lot also help me day to day life I guess....many thanks. "


" I believe that Del has come up with a new way of teaching English that is definetely incomparable to other teachers as he focuses on the rhythm and intonation of English which I believe it will come in handy when interacting with native English people. His method is enjoyable and relaxing and I think it can surely suit every foreign student's needs. I wish I had started doing lessons with him earlier. "


" I have been living in London for nearly a decade now. Throughout the years my speaking was improved only tiny bits, by picking up words and expressions here and there. I never felt I spoke the language with full confidence, so I decided to take an english course. Group courses were dreadfully boring, and the level of these classes weren’t really suitable for me. I invented different methods to improve my speaking, well, it didn’t quite work. It was starting to get frustrating and my speaking was getting even worse, due to losing enormous amounts of confidence, until I started my classes with Del. I’ve had classes with him twice a week for three months now. First of all this has been my chillest experience of a language class. I can’t wait for each lesson to come which is very uncharacteristic of me. I think this is because of Del’s very flexible method of teaching. He let’s you wander and find things that you don’t know and want to know, so you actually learn things very organically. Secondly and more importantly, I think he is excellent at finding what your weaknesses are in language, and what you need to improve. So, he gives you these exercises that are kind of tailored based on your needs. There is always a challenge but not too much to scare you off. My confidence in speaking english has grown. I don’t hear “Excuse me, what did you say?”, anymore, because my pronunciation and stressing are hugely improved. I highly recommend Del, for people who want to speak good english but they are not quite there yet. Del helps you to take a big step towards your goal. "


" Del was teaching our groups and individual students on line. The lessons structure was very well organized and he was always on time. Del used very interesting materials during classes and his individual approach helped students to relax and feel confident with their English. We received only good and positive feedback after his lessons! "


" Del is a very experienced and competent teacher. He has helped me to improve my pronunciation and my knowledge of the English language. Thanks! "


" Very qualified and very good teacher. I really enjoy the lessons , they are so useful and help me a lot in listening and speaking. "


" I am pleased to recommend Del as a great English teacher! He has an excellent communication skills and a love for the English language. I really enjoy working with him, he always try to be very flexible in terms of time and the way of teaching. I would highly recommend him to anyone. "


" Del is a great and encouraging teacher. His class is well organised that his students can learn in a relaxing way. Also his unique teaching method focuses on learning pronunciation, intonation and REAL English, which are useful to understand how native speakers talk. I enjoy doing his lessons so much, and the teaching materials are really helpful to improve my spoken English. Thank you Del 🙂 "


" I've passed the b1 test!! Thank you very much for your help in this. "


" The lessons helped to improve my English, Del is an experienced and easy going theacher. "

English is the medium for 80% of the information stored in the world’s computers

1 %

English makes up 25% of the most common languages used on the internet as of December 2017

1 %

20% of the world’s approximately 7.5 billion inhabitants speak English


English is the most widespread language in the world.

It is more widely spoken and written than any other language.

An estimated 1.5 billion people are studying the language worldwide.

More than half of the world’s technical and scientific periodicals are in English.

Three-quarters of the world’s mail, telexes and cables are in English.


According to Bill Bryston in his book ‘Mother Tongue’, “English dialects/regional accents change every 10 miles or so in the UK because they value individuality in that culture. In North America most people speak the same dialect because they value belonging. Few people speak the English British teach. Learners may never encounter anyone who speaks the RP they study in school.”

This probably rings true for many of you who have moved to England thinking your level of English is quite high, only to find you can’t understand a lot of native English speakers and they struggle to understand you. It can be very frustrating!

That’s why I teach ‘real’ English. The English you hear on the streets, in the pubs/restaurants and in the workplaces, spoken by over 95% of native English speakers.


Most frequent questions and answers

Fast Internet (At least 2mbs download and 1mb upload)

I use a lot of media and word/pdf files, so a tablet or PC/Laptop is preferable

A headset is helpful or headphones with a built in mic (usually come free with mobile devices) are sufficient.

Skype or Zoom installed

I accept PayPal and Bank Transfers

Payment is due BEFORE the lesson.

The first lesson is £15 and subsequent lessons are £17.50

I have packages of 5 lessons for £85 and 10 for £150

I try to be as flexible as possible. If you are going to be late or have to cancel and you contact me 24 hours before the lesson then I can usually reschedule to another time. 

If you don’t give me notice and miss a lesson, then that is a slot another student could have taken and you will be charged for the lesson.

Very rarely I may have to cancel a lesson. I do my utmost to keep this to a minimum but occasionally it happens due to circumstances beyond my control. If this happens then I will reschedule a lesson for you.

I use a communicative method. This means I try to get you to talk as much as possible because research shows this is the most effective way to learn a language. I usually offer correction as we speak and when I pinpoint areas that you may be weaker in, such as, grammar tenses or pronunciation of consonant clusters, I will then concentrate on this in the next lesson. I also use various other methods I have found to be effective, such as the shadowing technique.

I like to use media such as TV series and newspaper articles to increase general vocabulary and pronunciation.

I will record you sometimes (with your permission) so you can monitor your pronunciation improvements, as it’s difficult to hear progress in this area.

Ultimately, I like to let the lessons be led by you as much as possible because you probably have a good idea of what you want to achieve. My lessons are organic (I like to go with the flow). If a topic comes up in the lesson you want to explore, I’m happy to go with it as long as learning is being achieved.

If you are the type of person who likes ultra-organised and rigid lessons full of grammar then I’m probably not the teacher for you, as I prefer the flexible approach.
