Ambassador

We host the best tutors. Quality of their profile, experience in their field. Richard will be happy to arrange your first ESOL (English) lesson.

About the lesson

I personalize my classes for each student as I strongly believe no two students are the same. In our first class, we will make a plan to achieve your specific English goals together. The classes can be varied, with a mix of key skills or specialized in a certain area such as speaking or writing.

I am able to work with students from a beginner to an advanced level. In particular, I am suitable for students who feel they are struggling to advance to the next level.

Additionally, I will identify and work to improve your common problems with English.

When taking classes with me I will give you access to my large library of materials for class material, self-study, and homework.

About Richard

I have been teaching full-time online for over 4 years and have worked with thousands of students from all over the world. I have helped many people to achieve fluency in English and become confident in using English in business and travel situations. In addition, I have assisted many students to pass their IELTS (Grade 7+) and TOEFL (100+). This has helped people to change their lives and move to other countries, something I am very proud of. I speak both Portuguese (advanced) and Spanish (intermediate) which gives me an excellent understanding of how languages work and how to achieve fluency.

I also have a background in the world of business, I worked previously as a manager at GATC, an energy training center. This valuable experience has helped me to understand the pressures students may face when speaking English in the workplace.

Qualifications: BA (Hons) Geography, TEFL Training course, Cambridge IELTS tuition certificate, Oxford Cambridge & RSA exam Assessor, and Oxford Cambridge & RSA Independent Verifier, Teaching Portuguese as a Second Language course by Jane Duarte.

  • 01

    Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?

    I am a native British English teacher.

  • 02

    Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the language's culture?

    I would have to choose Atticus Finch from my favourite book, to kill a mockingbird. He represents all that is good with people and he has an excellent command of the language. He uses his ability to speak to try and help a man falsely accused of a crime.

  • 03

    Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition, or behaviour in the language that you particularly like?

    My favourite thing about English people and culture is tea! I love the fact that this drink brings people together and offers everyone the chance to do something small for someone else. In the UK, it is considered rude if you make a cup for yourself and don't offer one to someone else.

  • 04

    Why does speaking this language matter to you?

    English is my native tongue, it is the language in which I think and dream. It also is a language that connects people from all over the world and that can open so many doors for people.

  • 05

    What is the main difficulty in learning this language and what can help the process of learning?

    The main difficulty people face in a language is knowing how to progress and structure their learning. This is different at different stages of the process. For beginners, it is better to focus on high-frequency verbs and topics of personal interest and daily life rather than for example airport vocabulary which is not an everyday situation. Intermediate to advanced students needs then to dramatically increase their exposure to the language. Most of what we experience we forget (just try to remember what you had for dinner last Tuesday) so it is essential that our interactions are meaningful in order for us to remember them. At this stage, learning vocabulary also gets harder as the words we want to learn are not so common. It is essential then to recycle the vocabulary with creative writing tasks so that we can increase the frequency with which we see them.

  • 06

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your language learning or your days at school.

    Last year, I met up with a family whom I had helped to pass the IELTS exam. They are now all living in the UK and Europe and they were so grateful for the help that I gave them. I feel so grateful that my job allows me to make a positive difference in people's lives and can help them chase their dreams.

  • 07

    What makes you a Superprof in language?

    I am a Superprof because I really care about my students and their progress. This is not just a job to me, it is my life's passion. I am constantly learning about languages and how to better learn them. My goal is to pass on this passion to my students and the world because I believe that communication is the key to peace, happiness, and prosperity.
