Business English Teacher in London: I specialize in helping advanced English students achieve English fluency.

Methodology

Welcome, I appreciate you coming to my page.

The method used to help you reach your full Business English speaking potential is mostly bespoke regarding your needs.

I use a basic formula and structure in our first free class, and during this class, I will certainly know your needs and problem areas.

All classes, courses, and coaching sessions start in this way. I have found teaching in this way yields the best results for the advanced Business English student.

• 10 min - Pronunciation training
• 20 min - Reading aloud and Public Speaking (Grammar if needed)
• 15 min - Business communications
• 15 min - Business communication conversation

Advanced Business English students benefit from this method greatly. Beginner and intermediate students will be taught a different method, but similar, to suit their needs.

I have taught English to great business people from many countries:

- Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico
- United Arab Emirates
- Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar.
- Spain, Italy
- United Kingdom
- Russia, China, Japan, Australia

I want you to be confident in speaking English freely and without embarrassment. I have dedicated my career to being a teacher of Business English and a Business Communication teacher. I am professional at my craft, and I will treat you with great respect.

Definition of Confidence:
# the state of feeling certain about the truth of something.
“I feel confident to speak English in all business environments”

# a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.
"I do not worry anymore about speaking English, I am now fluent, clear, and perfectly understandable. I am confident to speak English"

As aulas com o Clarke foi sem dúvida minha melhor experiência com a língua Inglesa. Um método diferente de aprender inglês, que te faz realmente entender que inglês não é bicho de sete cabeças. Diferente de tantas outras escolas e métodos que já conheci, com ele você não decora, você aprende. Recomendo a todos que queiram aprender/ melhorar o seu Inglês, e sintam algum tipo de dificuldade, a fazer uma aula experimental para atestar o que estou dizendo.Super recomendo!
thank you very much

Estava procurando aulas particulares para aprimorar meu Inglês quando conheci a o professor Clarke. As aulas são dinâmicas e divertidas e nao há uma aula que não aprenda uma nova palavra ou expressão. Além das aulas, ele consegue fazer uma boa interação social com seus alunos, super recomendo.

I was looking for private lessons to improve my English when I met him. Classes are dynamic and fun and there isn't a class that doesn't learn a new word or expression. In addition to classes, he manages to have a good social interaction with his students, I highly recommend it.

Interview with Clarke

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?
Clarke — Soon after starting to teach English 5 years ago, I noticed non-native English speakers need a lot of help in developing their confidence to speak clearly and that's where my main interest in teaching is.



I focus on teaching advanced English students how to speak clearly through techniques I borrowed from other disciplines like pronunciation training, public speaking, and some of my own techniques I have developed over the years.



My passion in biggest interest is to help students achieve English fluency.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).
Clarke — I teach English fluency, so there are some key factors involved to consider when achieving English fluency.



Sophisticated vocabulary
Pronunciation and mouth position
Reading and sentence structure
Confidence through competence


These 4 factors will help you the student greatly to achieve English fluency.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Clarke — Actually yes, I have many role models I like to look up to. I love Stephan R Covey's book "The 7 Habits Of The Highly Successful" and the rules in this book help me to give a great service to my students, while also growing and improving my service.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?
Clarke — I have learned that a great tutor is a person who tries to find the real problem the student is having with the English language, then show the student the findings, and together work to fix these problems. Ultimately working well with the student so they can achieve English learning goals.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.
Clarke — In January of 2021, a student of mine told me his speech therapist congratulated him on the improvements he had made with his native language. I didn't know he had this problem at the time because our classes are in English, but I was pleasantly surprised that my methods had helped a person in their native language as well as English. I really felt like I achieved something on that day.
QUESTION 06 | 08
What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or still facing in your subject?
Clarke — The biggest challenge I face in this career is to help students see their potential. Students have great potential to grow, and I want to help them with that.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?
Clarke — Yes. My academic passions are business studies and the art of public speaking. I also love travel, cultures, and cooking.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof (besides answering this interview questions :-P) ?
Clarke — I really like the Superprof system and this website has been great for me by matching me with great students. The students I have make my business, so I own a lot to Superprof.
