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.
No. We teach from beginners to advanced. The only thing we ask is for dedication, a can do attitude and the ability to laugh at yourself.
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.
Online working has been shown to be more effective than face to face.

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.
