Listening practice

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.

You'll find some examples in the blog posts:


Structured course

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.


Guided conversation practice

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.


Building Vocabulary

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.

I also offer editing and proofreading services for all of your business documents, emails and web texts.

My background

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.

In parallel to teaching, I also provide a full copy-editing, proofreading and correction service for all your English-language materials.

My experience

My teaching experience includes delivering in-company courses at financial institutions and software houses, and even providing tuition to world-famous politicians. I have no doubt that, whatever your requirements, I can help you or your organisation.

I have worked as a freelance professional copy-editor and proofreader since 2003.
