Introduction:

I want to help you to learn!

I have been working as an English teacher in Barcelona since 2014. I have taught children and adults at all levels from elementary to proficiency, in both large groups and one-to-one situations.

I would like to help you practise and improve your English over Skype. I am particularly interested in discovering how students from different parts of the world react to learning English.

I have over ten years' experience of learning languages myself, and currently I am studying a new one: Catalan.

I am a keen traveller, and have visited 85 countries, so would love you to teach me about where you are from, as I help you with your English.

Teaching Specialty:

Business English Basics › Intermediate

I can help you practise common business situations, focusing on pronunciation and sounding like a native.

Business Skills & Knowledge › Speech

With my previous experience in media, I can help you with public speaking and with perfecting a good native-sounding rhythm when you speak English.

Business Skills & Knowledge › Interview Skills

With my previous experience in media, I can help you prepare for interviews, and think about predicting what the other person wants to hear.

Business Skills & Knowledge › Presentation

With my previous experience in media, I can help you prepare and perfect your skills for public speaking.

English Basics › Grammar

Nothing is more important than correcting common grammatical mistakes, and I can help you to identify why they happen and what traps to avoid.

Writing › Email Writing

Emails are a form of personal marketing, and it is important to develop the skill of planning your thoughts before you write, and reading what you have written before you send it. I can assist with what to look for.

Everyday English › Situational Conversation

Imagining yourself in real situations is quite easy, but I am keen to help you speak hypothetically, which is something students find very difficult, even though we do it all the time in our own language.

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

Practising problematic sounds is the key to sounding like a native speaker. It is often ignored in large classes and official courses for logistical reasons, so a one-to-one lesson is perfect for this.

Topics › News Articles

Using authentic reading and listening material from news websites like the BBC is the quickest way to identify new vocabulary. The conversations you have about these topics are just what native people talk about.

Test Prep › Cambridge

With the use of practice tests and course material, I can suggest techniques to help you prepare to pass exams.
