Hi. If you're originally from abroad and want to learn English, then I'd absolutely love to help you. I'm patient and cheerful and have a lot of knowledge about English.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach English as a Foreign Language (EFL) including test preparation IELTS, FCE, CAE, Proficiency, job interview preparation and conversation based lessons that help you to talk like a native speaker by using phrasal verbs, collocations and idioms and by focusing on pronunciation.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I am qualified to teach English as a foreign language having completed two TEFL qualifications and a specialist qualification in teaching people one-to-one.
- How much do you charge?
My prices are dlsplayed on my profile.
- Where do you teach?
I teach online. In a small number of cases, I might be able to teach in-person lessons in the areas of Carshalton, Sutton and Wallington.
- When are you available?
At the moment, I am available weekday evenings, usually from 7.30pm and at weekends (all day). This may change in the future (please contact to me to see if I have more hours available)
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I can teach English to people of all levels.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
IELTS, FCE, CAE and Proficiency. I have also prepared people for Blue Badge Tour guiding qualifications.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I usually teach via either Skype or Zoom. Other platforms might be possible following discussion with a student.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I'd love to help you learn the English that you need to achieve your dreams - whether that involves getting a dream job, moving to (or studying in) an English speaking country or getting a promotion in your current job. I can help you prepare for tests and job interviews and help you to speak a very natural, native like English.
I have been teaching English for the past 4 years. I was so keen to help people that I gave lessons for free to start with (to people newly arrived in the UK). Over this time, I have taught more than 1,500 lessons to around 200 different students from all around the world. I've taught lots of different students from places like Brazil, Russia, China, Poland, Romania, Italy and Spain. I am a language learner myself, so I understand that learning that can be both a great joy and quite frustrating.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught more than 1,500 hours of online lessons on a variety of platforms to around 200 different students and I've taught several face-to-face lessons as well. I've taught students from all over the world - Brazil, Russia, China, Poland, Spain, Romania, Italy etc etc and helped many students to pass the exams that they need to change their lives - for example IELTS, FCE, CAE or Proficiency exams that they need to be able to move to, or study in an English speaking country. I've also taught business English to a group of business people at an English camp in the Czech Republic.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, I have a current enhanced DBS check because my day job involves working with young people with learning disabilities.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students include: 1) A Russian lady studying for her IELTS exam. I've worked with her on her speaking and her writing and she has gained the grades that she needs in those areas. I will now start to work with her on her reading, as she didn't get the grade she needed for reading. 2) A Spanish lady that I am helping to prepare the professional/technical documentation necessary for a professional qualification. 3) An Italian guy with whom I am working to practise for a high-level job interview in the finance industry.
You need to tell me 48 hours before a lesson if you can't make it, or I will have to charge you for the lesson.
I really recommend Andrew! It was a pleasure work with him during this months! He is supportive and capable of helping people who want to learn English even from scratch! Thank you and see you soon.
I'd like to express my gratitude to Andrew for his extremely useful lessons! I've found out a lot of new words and idioms for conversational English. He is very competent teacher and he is able not only increase your general score, but also to help prepare for international exams. Andrew is supportive and polite person, so our lessons are highly enjoyable for me!
I highly recommend lessons with Andrew. It's really interesting and effective way of improving your English skills. You can practise in the way which is fit to your needs and also choose the most interestic topics. It's never boring!
There is no better way of learning a new language than speaking it. Andrew has all the traits a perfect conversation partner needs: he really listens to you, doing his best to try and understand / interpret / decode what you are trying to say with your limited English vocabulary. He is also great at speaking about anything, fluently, even about a nineteenth century corset - and he always finds a chance to teach you about a new term, or correct a grammar error you made, always with a touch of hum
The best way to learn English! It was a pleasure work with him because is an excellent teacher and person. I improved a lot, especially my writing and the way I express my ideas in this language. He was always willing to correct my articles. Thanks for all, Andrew
Andrew is a tremendous teacher, offering tailor made lessons according to the student needs.
I was able to succeed in my carrier in the UK, thanks to his lessons
