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.
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.

Perfect! Richard is very professional in IETLS teaching, well recommended! Thanks
Looking forward to working with you long-term. Professional and hardworking.
Perfect! He is an excellent teacher. I'm very grateful because it immediately became much easier to get a score that I aimed since I started taking his classes ( and I had struggled for long to get that score before). He also gives me a bunch of resources to help my English. Thank you;)
Ririka is a studious individual with great talent and enthusiasm. It has been a pleasure teaching her and I look forward to working with her more in the future.
Perfect! Richard is an excellent tutor, very effective with a friendly and professional approach. Very helpful and good at explaining. He has tailored the classes to my preferences and style. Highly recommend!
Camelia is a great student, very attentive and hardworking. We will be working together to improve her grammar and vocabulary knowledge.
I was fortunate to work with Richard. He helped me a lot to get me passed for the Toefl test. I appreciate his help, which was also beyond the lessons.
I sincerely advice Richard to other students :).
He is an excellent teacher, always makes me feel comfortable speaking English and helps me with the smallest details. We have very nice conversations and it is very friendly and fun.
Great tutor in every aspect. Has a very unique approach towards each student. Leassons are always fun, interactive and informative. My IELTS requirement was 7.0, yet thanks to Richard I managed to get 8.0. Will definetely recommend his classes to anyone who wants to prepare for IELTS or to practice speaking in general.
I've been preparing for the IELTS exam for about a year and a month ago I finally got the score that I need. Thanks to Richard!
The speaking part was the most difficult for me, because at the exam you have to answer the questions that you've never think about before. On our second lesson Richard shared with me very usefull tips and tricks how to extent answers, how to generate ideas while speaking, how to use idioms which can boost your score significantly. And it works!
To compare with my previous exam I spoke very confidently and without stops, which was unexpectedly cool for me.
He also has a treasure trove of knowledge about dealing with stress during exam, which I personally applied and which gave me a good result. So, If you want your exam went smoothly, try to study with Richard!
Richard is the " full package" teacher. He's been my tutor for a while and I hope we continue practicing together. He prepares the lessons very well and makes sure that the student learns and practices every moment.
I recommend him because there'is no way you will regret choosing him as your tutor.
I think Richard is a trustworthy tutor because I had lesson with him and it was perfect. He respect your level with the english language and walk with you according your needs. Congratulations Richard!

FANTASTIC! Richard is an excellent and amazing teacher and great person. His classes are very productive . :)
I have been learning English with Richard since summer and I feel a huge progress. First, I forgot about my language barrier. I used to get nervous when I was speaking in English. But now I am comfortable to speak in English and completly forgot about this feeling. Second, this is my grammar skills. My favorite thing is that we often discuss how British and American people use this rule in common life. The big news for me was that native speakers do mistakes :) 3rd, I increased my vocabulary and I often use new learned phrases and words in a conversation.
In the end I would like to add that Richard is friendly, supportive and at the same time always controls my learning process, notices what we need to learn or repeat and give a lot of materials for my practice.
He can make a peice of information easier for the learner. Also, He is good at teaching methodically.
