+ Hi! I'm Chris, from Manchester, UK. I have a level 5 TEFL accredited qualification in teaching English, and I look forward to connecting with you on your English learning journey!

Teaching Specialty:

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

I have an acute awareness of the difficulties involved with English learners from different countries and believe that with my patience and knowledge I would be able to create lessons that would improve the learners pronunciation and in turn increase their fluency.

Topics › Small Talk

Small talk in a lingua franca situation can be daunting for most people. I can help you gain confidence when placed in these situations, from what to say, how to respond and to be taken seriously.

Writing › Business Writing

I have plenty of experience with writing letters and emails to prospective clients. I am able to proof read, provide recommendations but most importantly teach the fundamentals when writing formal letters.

Business English Basics › Advanced

My TEFL qualification specialises in Business English, in addition to my current career in Marketing in local and international markets. I would love to help aspiring English speakers to navigate the ever changing dynamics of business english.

Everyday English › Situational Conversation

I follow the news daily, so I have plenty of material and knowledge when it comes to current affairs and conversational english. My time abroad, particularly in Asia has opened me up to talking to non native english speakers.
