You know the basics but you just need to practise? You want someone who can guide you, correct your mistakes and give you patient, friendly, professional advice.
You recognise the words when you read them, but it's not so easy when you're listening to someone speaking? The answer … practice, practice, practice. We'll listen to a wide variety of audio and video material to give you lots of practice in listening.
We'll go over all the grammar topics that you need. There will be explanations and practice in everything we cover, so if there are some grammatical issues that often give you problems, this is where to come!
We'll work with the highly respected Headway coursebook. Headway gives you a methodical route to your required level of English. It covers all the grammar, vocabulary and language structures that you need. There is lots of practice in all four skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing.
We'll use a variety of materials – written, audio and video – to take us into a range of different subject areas. We'll build vocabulary by listening and discussing. We'll learn not only individual words, but also collocations (words that often appear together) and idioms.
We'll use various materials to prepare for these respected, but challenging, exams. We'll practise all the necessary skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing. For FCE and CAE, we'll study the use of English. We'll work with the appropriate coursebook, as well as other materials. We'll focus on the areas that give you the most difficulty. Preparing for these exams can take months, so don't wait too long before starting. Act now and book classes with an experienced teacher.
After a long career in software development, I decided to stop playing with
computers and start working with people. So I became an English teacher.
It was a good choice. Many years later, I still enjoy helping people all around the world to learn and improve their English.
I can't dance and I'm a terrible singer but I'm pretty good at helping people to understand the music of English.
