Introduction:

Business and professional English together with interview, conversational and networking skills.

I have been teaching English language especially for professionals and academics for over 8 years. Focusing on conversation and professional vocabulary. Before teaching I was a finance manager in a multi-national technology company and it’s my experience that helps me provide very valuable lessons. My lessons can be informal discussions about any topic at all; from business to fashion from sport to space travel. They can also be more structured and practical covering topics such as interview practice, presentations, project management, negotiations and running meetings. Students will learn native professional English, develop more advanced grammar in a very natural way and gain exposure to a wide range of reference materials.

Teaching Specialty:

English Basics › Pronunciation / Phonics

I think you will like my gentle but thorough approach to helping with your pronunciation. My methods are simple and effective.

English Basics › Grammar

Specialisation in perfect tenses with a variety of exercises to bring clarity and confidence. Courses on gerunds and infinitives. Focus on problem prepositions. Tutorials and practice sessions on narrative and passive forms. Simplification of conditionals.

Topics › Discussion

I have both a scientific and business background and love talking about any topic which is of interest to the student. I can find many questions to ask the student to allow them to show their knowledge and enthusiasm for their subject. I enjoy and am experienced in exploring new subjects with students where they may be asked to move out of their comfort zone and stretch themselves.

Business Skills & Knowledge › Interview Skills

I have extensive experience in interviewing candidates from my time as a finance manager. Database of interview questions and techniques to answer them.

Business English Basics › General

Access to business magazines and journals to use as case study material for learning vocabulary and practicing discussions.
