How I teach depends on the age, level and aims of my students. I do not teach mainstream textbook courses, but I can support students needing extra help with such courses or needing to cover materials their course does not cover. I teach a lot of tailor made courses in which I work with students to analyse their language needs, define their language objectives and then plan a route to achieving them (as far as possible) within a specific timeframe. I can also provide individual feedback to students for single skills such as speaking, or writing, on an "ad hoc" basis.
I am educated to Masters level, I have a Cambridge CELTA certificate, I have been teaching ESOL for over 20 years, and I have also been an examiner for a major examining board. I teach English for academic purposes, specialising in preparing students for IELTS, TOEFL, KET, PET, FCE and CAE exams, and in perfecting and improving writing and speaking skills. I have taught in the UK, Europe and the Middle East, including at two Universities in Saudi Arabia. I only teach online and only students who have a particular goal to achieve, whether that is just one essay to work on or a business presentation, or a better accent in speaking. I do not teach general textbook courses, there are many schools already doing this.
As I am quite busy, students of single lessons or 5-hour courses who cancel or reschedule a lesson will forfeit their fee for that lesson. Students buying 10hr courses may cancel or reschedule ONE lesson in each 10hr course without penalty.
