Richard is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
My aim is usually to help the student to become more confident in all four skills - listening, speaking, reading and writing. I use an initial assessment tool to gauge the level of the student before we start.
After that, I tailor my teaching to the needs of each individual student. So if they want to achieve a score of 7.5 at IELTS, I use course books and mock tests, together with hints and tips, to help them achieve that. If, on the other hand, their main focus is using English effectively at work, we will look at writing emails, telephone technique, etc. My focus is all ways on meeting the needs of the student.

Want to brush up your skills or start from scratch? Whatever level or duration, I am the tutor for you! My aim is to help you to help yourself - with lots of enthusiasm, encouragement, fun & laughter.
I teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
Apart from "O" and "A" levels, I have an upper second class honours degree in French and German, a PGCE, a TESOL qualification from Bradford College and a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) in 2011, an RSA qualification in Literacy and Numeracy tuition and certificates in linguistics. I also have DBS Enhanced Disclosure certificate which is auto- updated.

I am available weekdays any time. I am also available some evenings. I teach teenagers and adults, and I can prepare students for the FCE, CAE, IELTS and BULATS exams.
And finally ... a personal message to you: don't be afraid to make mistakes - remember the saying "Those who never made a mistake never made anything!" Persevere, don't take yourself too seriously, and enjoy the language-learning process.
Hello, I have known Richard Brastsington for more than 20 years when he was a SIL missionary in Burkina. Then he was my teacher for learning English. For teaching, I really appreciated Richard who has a pedagogy allowing his students to learn more easily and effectively.
