Private Online English Lessons with an Professional and Experienced Teacher from Dublin, Ireland.

Methodology

The Free Online Consultation
If you need English lessons, send me a message. We can meet online and I will explain my course, answer your questions, do a short speaking level test, and help you to do an online reading level test.

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. You need to speak for the entire duration of the lesson. As you speak, I will make comments and ask questions so that it feels like a normal conversation.

My one Rule
I have only one rule: if you come to a lesson, and say that you didn't have time to prepare for the lesson (It takes one hour!), the lesson will not continue.

In each Lesson
You do one thing in a lesson: you speak for the entire duration of the lesson. I correct and explain your mistakes, type the information in Skype, and you explore the mistakes after the lesson. You need to write enough notes to speak for the entire duration of the lesson. I will teach you how to do that.

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.

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. I recommend that you read and listen every day. There are decades of academic research to support this idea.

Vocabulary and Grammar
A knowledge of about 3,000 words equals about 90% of a conversation in English. There are only seven kinds of sentences (grammatical structures) in English. I recommend that you revise and memorise new words every day, but learn only a limited quantity of grammar.

Fluency
My definition of fluency is 'speed'. In the course, I can teach you techniques to help you improve your fluency. All students need to improve their fluency.

The Fees
You can pay fees by means of bank transfer once a month.

Your responsibilities
At the beginning of the course, I will tell you that I am responsible for my teaching, but you are responsible for your learning. However, you can only be responsible for your learning if you know how to learn. Therefore, I will teach you a lot of skills. You can choose to use the skills or ignore them. You are responsible for your learning.

Time
If you want to learn English, the most important thing you need is time. I recommend that you study at home for a minimum of one hour per day.

Additional Information
I teach conversational English to adult students. I don't teach traditional lessons, and I don't use traditional coursebooks 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.

Ambassador

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Noel will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

I don't use a method. Successful language learners do an enormous quantity of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. They learn a limited quantity of grammar. They don't think about methods. I have over ten 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.

Igor

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!

Noel's response

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.

Jamille

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!

Noel's response

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.

Andressa

Perfect! Noel é um excelente professor, muito atencioso, prestativo, divertido e pontual. As aulas são ótimas, o aluno fala em inglês durante toda a aula e Noel vai fazendo as correções e sugestões de como certa expressão poderia ser dita e quais as formas mais comuns de expressá-la. Noel está sempre muito preocupado com o desempenho do aluno e sempre disponível para tirar qualquer tipo de dúvida, mesmo depois das aulas. A quantidade de material que Noel passa pros alunos também é enorme, dicionários, gramáticas, aplicativos que ajudam na memorização de palavras e expressões, sites que ajudam com a pronúncia e etc.
Super recomendo!

Noel's response

I like teaching Andressa. She prepares for every lesson. She tries hard in the lessons and really wants to improve her English. There is a positive atmosphere in the lessons and this helps a lot. She's good fun. She learns quickly. It's definitely a positive and enjoyable experience.

Yasmin

Perfect! Noel is a excelent teacher! Very patient and available to solve my doubt. He worries about my learning and teaching very well. I really recommend Noel!

Noel's response

Yasmin is great to teach. She's always prepared for the lessons and works hard to improve. I don't have any doubt that she will improve if she continues studying as she always does. Definitely a positive experience.

F
Felipe

Perfect! Noel tem um método único, que faz fixar as palavras e estruturas em inglês! Recomendo!

Noel's response

Felipe prepared very well for the lessons and tried really hard to improve his English. He's curious about the language. He asks a lot of questions and that's important. I enjoyed teaching him.

Noel's response

I like teaching Andre. He prepares very well for every lesson, and tries hard to improve. He is improving due to his own hard work. I have no doubts that he will continue to improve in the future. It's a positive experience all round.

S
Sabrina

Perfect! Recomendo o Noel a quem quer desenvolver a conversação em inglês e sair do nível intermediário, porque 80% da aula é o aluno quem fala sobre algum episódio de série ou filme que assistiu, numa linguagem informal, como se conversasse com um amigo. Nos outros 20% Noel corrige os erros e dá recomendações de melhoria, seja de vocabulário, fluência, gramática. É uma excelente forma de aprender.

Noel's response

It's a pleasure to teach Sabrina. She comes to the lesson well prepared and tries hard. She's a really nice person to teach and I enjoy the lessons very much. A positive experience from beginning to end.

Erika

Perfect! Noel é um grande professor. É muito organizado, oferece ótimas sugestões de material, é pontual e muito disponível.
É exatamente o que eu buscava em um professor.

Noel's response

Erika reads a lot and this is clearly reflected in her ability to speak English. We know from academic research that reading broadens a student's knowledge of new words and deepens a student's knowledge of known words. It's a pleasure to teach her.

Raphaela

Perfect! I really like the lessons with Noel. He is a good teather and help me to improve my conversation. We talk only in English all the time. He advice about read and prepare for lessons. It's very good to organization my English's course. Congratulations!

Noel's response

Raphaela is always prepared for the lessons. She works hard in the lessons as well. I like teaching her. It's a positive experience from beginning to end.

Luana

Perfect! Noel, é um excelente professor.
O aluno fala durante a aula inteira, o professor corrige os erros e mostra a gramática correta. Além disso ele tem milhões de materiais e sites para facilitar o aprendizado.
Ele é nativo, isso ajuda muito a melhorar a conversação
As aulas do Noel são para quem quer realmente aprender.
Super recomendo!

Noel's response

Luana is an excellent student. She prepares for every lesson, and responds very well to my advice. She is dedicated to learning the language and puts a lot of wok into it. I don't doubt that she will improve as a result of her own hard work.

Interview with Noel

QUESTION 01 | 08
Você fala fluentemente esta língua por causa de suas origens ou porque um professor te motivou a aprendê-la?
Noel — I'm a native English speaker. I've always been interested in English. I began to read English from a young age, and I have continued reading about a wide variety of subjects ever since. My reading has greatly contributed to my ability to teach English. A good teacher is a good reader! There is also a large quantity of academic research supporting the importance of reading as a means of increasing knowledge of vocabulary and deepening knowledge of known vocabulary. If you want to speak English well, don't underestimate the importance of reading.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Cite uma pessoa (da atualidade, histórica ou fictícia) que, na sua opinião, representa bem a cultura da língua que você ensina.
Noel — The greatest influence on my English is Professor Steven Pinker. His command of English is extraordinary. He gets to the point immediately. When you read his books, you certainly need to pay attention. His English is clear and vivid. He supports what he says with vast quantities of research. When I read his books, I need to reach for a dictionary many times. That's good for my English, and it's therefore good for my students.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Existe alguma palavra, expressão ou tradição típica que você goste particularmente?
Noel — I particularly like the following words: languages are learned more than they are taught. The commercial market is full of products promising fluency in record periods of time. Languages have never been learned in record periods of time. However, it's possible to learn a language more efficiently. Therefore, I teach my students a lot of skills. The idea is that the more I teach you, the less you need me, but that depends on whether or not a student is willing to learn a broad range of skills and become a more independent learner.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Por qual motivo aprender esta língua é importante (seja no âmbito escolar, profissional ou pessoal)?
Noel — Why a student learns English depends on the needs of the student. Some students need English to advance their careers. Other students need English because they would like to travel a lot. In my opinion, people should learn languages so that they can see the world from a perspective which is utterly different from their own. Seeing the world from the perspective of others is a fundamental life skill.
QUESTION 05 | 08
Qual a maior dificuldade no aprendizado desta língua e o como contornar este obstáculo?
Noel — For some students, they simply don't know where to begin when learning English. Should they read more or listen more? Which is more important: grammar or vocabulary? There are many more questions. Therefore, I structure my students learning by recommending the following daily routine: read English every day, listen to English every day, revise new words every day, learn at least one phrasal verb every day, and try to resolve at least one problem every day. I also recommend a weekly (weekend) routine of preparing for lessons, and exploring mistakes made in previous lesson. If you want to learn a language, you need to know what to do, how to do it, and how often to do it. That's what I teach my students. I teach them language learning skills. Teaching is also a means of taking bad ideas out of a student's head, putting good ideas into a student's head, and that means trying to change how a student thinks, which is a very difficult thing to do, but if a teacher can do it, teaching can be one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Você poderia compartilhar alguma história e/ou curiosidade engraçada relacionada à sua profissão ou as aulas particulares?
Noel — The extraordinary variety of personalities is certainly the most interesting, stimulating, and rewarding aspect of my job. Each new student is a completely new challenge. Starting to teach a new student is like starting a new job. It's impossible to get bored. The sheer variety of personalities and temperaments is endless. Teaching such a huge variety of different people is the ultimate enjoyable challenge.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Nos ajude a te conhecer melhor, nos conte um pouco sobre suas viagens, amizades nativas no idioma que você você leciona entre outros! 😄
Noel — Making friends in the language you are learning is the most important thing, and for one simple reason: people are the most interesting texts. Movies and series are interesting, but they don't match the complexity and diversity of people.
QUESTION 08 | 08
O que faz de você um Superprof (além do poder de se comunicar em várias línguas 😉) ?
Noel — What makes me a Superprof is that I give my students responsibilities and they learn more effectively as a result. I don't prepare for my lessons; my students prepare for their lessons. What I do before and after the lessons is more important than what I do in a lesson. What I know from experience is more important than what I do in a lesson. Only with experience can a teacher know that the student should do most of the work in a lesson. I put my students under a little pressure and that also helps them learn more effectively. Most importantly, my students tell me that for the first time in their lives they actually know that they are improving.
