Is Online Learning Any Good?
Many people think that learning online isn’t as effective as face to face,
but statistics and studies have shown they’re wrong!
E-Learning is quickly becoming the most popular method of learning.
Recently Forbes stated that, 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: from 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 and materials as needed.
Also my use of multimedia and real life materials will enable you to progress more quickly.
If you don’t know whether online English classes are for you,

MEET THE TEACHERS
Born and raised in Manchester, I teach one to one online via Skype and have been teaching for over 15 years. After getting my teaching qualification from Cambridge University, I focused on teaching English. I’ve been specializing in English training for 7 years, whilst working in the UK and Spain as well as online.
I specialize in pronunciation/accent reduction and helping students be understood and understand native speakers; including slang, colloquialisms and phrases.
Delivering courses, presentations and speaking publically for over 15 years, has given me the confidence and experience to know what works and what doesn’t.
Panic, fear and feeling inadequate for the job is how I felt at 14 years old when asked to tutor a boy a couple of years younger than me and get paid for it. However, I took on the challenge and began my career in teaching.
Later, I was offered a job in Malaga Spain teaching English to hundreds of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. This was the first time I had to really explain English grammar and it was not easy, you see, when I was growing up in the UK we were not taught English grammar, can you believe that!
I tailor my classes to each individual according to their personality and personal needs. I like to be creative in my methods and also fun. I research the students’ mother tongue in order to find out the common mistakes that are made from that language into English as this can speed up the students’ progress. I will not just be your one to one teacher but also, I will coach you on how to make long term progress. Book your first lesson now!

Most frequent questions and answers
Fast Internet (At least 2mbs download and 1mb upload)
I use some 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/Zoom or another communication software installed.
I use a communicative and direct 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.
By offering correction as we speak and pinpointing areas that you may be weaker in, such as grammar tenses or pronunciation of consonant clusters, means we can then concentrate on this in the next lesson.
Grammatical rules are learned indirectly by the learner figuring out correct grammatical sequences and verbally producing the language themselves through interactions on created situations.
I also use various other methods I have found to be effective, such as the shadowing technique, as well as 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. Simple English 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 rigid lessons full of grammar, or you want to sound like the Queen, then I’m probably not the teacher for you, as I prefer the flexible approach.
This is probably the most asked question. Some of my students struggle with a lack of confidence when it comes to speaking English and they get an instant confidence boost after the first lesson which can make a very big difference.
Some students improve quickly and with others it takes more time. At the end of the day, it totally depends on you. If you put in the effort to practice reading, writing, and speaking even when we’re not having a lesson, you’ll get better results, faster.
I try to be as flexible as possible. If you are going to be late or have to cancel and you contact me 12 hours before the lesson then I can usually reschedule to another time.
If you don’t give me 12 hours 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.
