Qualified native British English teacher with 16 years of experience offering global online ESOL lessons. Classes are tailored to your needs and are guaranteed to be fun and effective. 1st class free!

Methodology

First, I believe lessons should be friendly and fun. If you're not enjoying getting better at English, I'm not doing my job properly! At the start, we'll identify your goals and areas for development. I will then create an individual learning plan with SMART targets to help you improve. Depending on your learning goals, I use videos and newspaper articles for reading and comprehension, along with a lot of conversation. We can also cover grammar, listening skills, and writing. I always set homework, but if you lack time I understand!

If you need help for a job interview, please consider my Masterclass, which is aimed at helping you succeed in the recruitment process.

Experience

I've been a teacher since 2004. After my BA (Hons) and MA, I gained my PGCE (official British teacher training qualification) while working in the UK college system, before moving to Hungary. I currently teach private students as well as those from multinationals banks through an agency. I have many happy and successful learners who have gone on to pass IELTS, get better jobs and emigrate to English-speaking countries.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100

Details

Cancellation policy: a student may cancel the class with 24 hours' notice without incurring financial loss. If a student cancels on he day of the lesson, I will unfortunately have to charge the whole lesson fee for that class, as I'm unable to fill the slot at short notice.

Please note: the first lesson is 20 minutes long and is free.

Christopher's response

Petros is enthusiastic about English and is keen to develop his already good skills. We're going to be working on grammar, formal speech and writing. I'm looking forward to working with him, and I believe he will develop his use of the language over the coming months.

Chris is a great teacher, I was looking for a native English teacher to practice speaking and he was the perfect choice! He found great topics for our classes and was really fun to talk with him about different topics. He is a professional and I would recommend him to anyone who would like to improve their English.

Dijana

Chris is the best teacher for English language that I can imagine. He can motivate and spot your weak points and make you work on them in a very polite and nice way. He can explain clearly and is extremely patient. He selects the topics for each lesson deliberately. He never gives up on his student.

Zsuzsanna

Christopher is a well trained teacher. I've been his student in a last 2 years. His lessons are friendly and personalized. He is really good for those students whom want to be more professional in writting and pronountiation.
