My lessons are for active students who like reading, listening, and speaking. My lessons are not traditional grammar lessons. In my lessons, the student does most of the work, but I teach my students how to study, so you will know exactly what to do and how to do it. I teach according to academic research. Everything I teach you is supported by academic research. I have a very specific reason for everything I do and say. Every skill I teach you is optional but strongly recommended. If you are a professional and you need a professional service, send me a message, and I'll contact you very soon. We can meet online. I'll explain my course, answer your questions, do a short speaking level test, and help you to do an online reading level test. It takes about 30 minutes and is free of charge.
Before each Lesson
Before each lesson, you need to watch a movie or an episode of a series, write notes, and then explain the notes to me in English in the lesson. Preparing for the lessons only takes about one hour. There is a specific reason for preparing for the lesson: to have content for the lesson.
In each Lesson
You do one thing in each lesson: you speak for the entire duration of the lesson. I correct and explain your mistakes: vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and much more. I type the information in Skype, and you explore the mistakes after the lesson. I will teach you how to explore your mistakes. There is a specific reason for speaking in the lesson: to find the gaps/problems in your knowledge. My students love this part of each lesson and for many reasons.
After each Lesson
Exploring your mistakes after a lesson is the most important part of your course. I will teach you how to explore and analyse your mistakes in many ways.
Reading and Listening
Any experienced teacher will tell you that if you want to improve your English, you need to do an enormous quantity of reading and listening. Graded readers (books written in simple English) are very good if you have a low level. I recommend that you read and listen every day. There are decades of academic research to support this idea.
We know from academic research that a knowledge of about 3,000 words equals about 90% of an English conversation. I recommend that you revise and memorise new words every day. If you have problems memorising new words, I can teach you many techniques to resolve this problem.
There are only seven kinds of sentences in English. These sentences are repeated on every page of every book you read. You need to learn only a limited quantity of grammar but a LOT of vocabulary.
My definition of fluency is 'speed'. In the course, I can teach you techniques to help you improve your fluency. All students at all levels need to improve their fluency.
You can pay fees by means of bank transfer once a month. I live in Ireland, so fees are paid in Euros.
I teach conversational English to adult students. I don't teach traditional lessons, and I don't use traditional textbooks or methods. I don't teach business English or exam English. Your lessons will be private and online, and you will study at the same time and on the same day each week.
One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Noel will plan your first lesson with care.
I don't use a method. Languages are learned by means of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. I have about 14 years experience teaching English. I think a lot about how I teach. The result is that my students do most of the work in a lesson. The more I teach you, the less you need me, but that depends on how much time you have to study, and how open you are about using new skills and techniques.
I live in Ireland so fees are paid by bank transfer once a month.
My fee is €15 per hour.
I'm available to teach from Monday to Sunday. Lessons are fifty (50) minutes long.
My name is Noel, from Ireland, and the content of my lessons is determined by the texts chosen by the students. Students are free to use any kind of text: movie, series, short story, book, podcast, etc. In the lessons, students speak about the texts they choose. Therefore, the content of the lessons is completely spontaneous, just like a real conversation. The lessons are intensive, but also good fun! It's important to enjoy the experience when you learn a language. I teach all levels, and I teach people from many countries. I'm patient with students, and I understand their problems. If you need an experienced teacher, send me a message. Thanks!

Carolina is a little diamond! I need more students like her. I know she will come to every lesson completely prepared, and that she will try hard to improve. However, I perhaps need to probe a little more deeply to get closer to her needs as a student. That will just take a little more time. The experience is needless to say one hundred per cent positive.
Perfect! Noel es un maestro tan servicial. De buena gana comparte las mejores prácticas para tener éxito en el aprendizaje del inglés. Prepararse para sus lecciones requiere mucho trabajo, pero el esfuerzo vale la pena.
"Noel is such a helpful teacher. He willingly shares best practices to succeed at learning english. Preparing for his lessons requires hard work, but the effort pays off."

I highly recommend Noel as a tutor!
Iryna is a joy to teach. She prepares for every lesson, and definitely tries hard. She really wants to resolve the problems she has with her English. She has a great personality, and the lessons are good fun. It's a 100% positive experience for me.

Leonardo prepares very well for every lesson. His level of English is very good, and his fluency (speed) is excellent. He can express himself and is a very capable individual. The lessons are certainly a positive experience. He's also good fun in the lessons. He'll do very well.
Perfect! I have been following Noel's lessons since july, and I find them very interesting and useful. After many years of trying to improve my English, I think Noel's teaching method is among the best. It is well set up and full of tips and tricks. Even if for me, it is not easy to follow all the tips together, by applying some of them I am realizing that, one step at a time, I am improving in my english skills.
The one really good thing about Luca is that he is open to new ideas and new ways of doing things. After teaching for thirteen years, I can see that this characteristic is plainly evident in Luca's lessons. Luca has a positive attitude in the lessons, and he is good fun to teach. I like teaching him. I hope he does well in improving his English, and I have do doubt that he will.
Perfect! Noel is a very good teacher, organized and precise. I have already done several lessons with him and will continue for several months.
Lorenzo prepares well for every lesson and works hard to improve his English. He has a positive attitude to learning English, and he's great to teach. He notices his mistakes, and can analyze them very well. I'm sure he will improve as a result of his own hard work.
Perfect! Noel es un profesor muy metódico, didáctico y que te muestra muchos tips para aprender sin darte cuenta. Es muy eficiente y muy recomendable si quieres mejorar tu ingles, eso si tienes que esforzarte también, lo que hace que permanezcas motivado con sus clases. Lo recomiendo al 100%.
Vanessa comes to every lesson well prepared. She tries very hard to improve. She tries so hard that I sometimes have to tell her to be less detailed in her descriptions in the lesson. She will certainly improve. She is also good fun to teach. It's a positive experience from beginning to end!
Perfect! La modalità di lavoro di Noel è semplicemente fantastica. Lezioni basate principalmente sullo "speaking" ma fornisce tutti gli strumenti per lavorare durante la settimana anche sul "Reading" ed il "Listening". Non consigliato per chi pensa di imparare l'inglese senza lavorare quotidianamente . Come dice Noel va impostata una "daily routine" che ti porti giorno ad imparare qualcosa di nuovo (verbo , parola o frase tipica inglese). Insegnante esigente ma impeccabile!
Riccardo is a motivated and energetic student who really seems to know what he wants. He does have independence as a learner, which is always a breath of fresh air. He's full of energy in the lesson and is good fun to teach. He will certainly improve as a result of his own hard work in the lessons. A positive experience all round!
Perfect! Noel is an excellent teacher, he has a unique methodology that works very well for me.
Also he teaches a lot of differents techniques to improve your learning.
I highly recommend him to everyone!
Igor comes to every lesson well prepared and tries very hard. His motivation seems quite high and he has a positive attitude towards learning English. He's quite confident in what he does in the lesson. For me the lessons are a positive experience from beginning to end. I have no doubts that he will improve as a result of his own hard work and determination.
Perfect! Noel is an excellent teacher. He is calm, polite, very well qualified and he is always available to answer my questions. His method is fantastic and makes the learning process way easier. But if you want to really learn English you MUST commit with the processes because he is a teacher, not a magician. With that said, I do recommend him as a teacher. If you are in doubt, just go ahead with him because he is great!
Jamille has an amazing level of English and her fluency (speed) is excellent. It's a pleasure to teach her. She comes to the lessons prepared and she gives it one hundred per cent. She has a lively personality which makes the lesson a pleasure. It's definitely a positive experience for me.
