Personal Message
I am a native Londoner specialising in one to one advanced-level English. Cambridge IELTS, CAE and CPE. I teach via Skype and I can travel to your home or office or teach at my home if you are in East or North London
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor IELTS, CAE and CPE. Advanced English as a Foreign Language (EFL), Business English.

How I teach depends on the student's requirements. I will sometimes suggest that the student buy a specific text book that we will work though. Some classes, such as Advanced English Conversation, can be more free format if that's what the student wants or needs. I can provide lessons one to one or essay correction via email.

I only tutor at advanced-level English.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Certificate in English Language Teaching for Adults (CELTA) certified by Cambridge University, passing in the top quartile.

I have an Masters degree in Business Administration from Nottingham University Business School which I passed with Distinction.

I have a Diploma (Modern Languages BA) in Spanish and French from the Open University.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have over 30 years experience in working in private industry at a senior role. I have worked in most Western European countries, USA and South America. I have personal experience in using my second and third languages living and working in these countries so I fully understand what my students need in a second / third language.

All lessons are £30 per hour except Business English (£35). Prices may be negotiable for block bookings paid in advance.

Essay and written work assessment and correction by email return is £10 per essay/report of up to 350 words. For essays above 350 words the price is on a case by case basis.

I tutor via Skype and via email but I can travel to your home or office for lessons in North and East London.

I can also travel to South West Essex and South East Hertfordshire but there may an extra charge for travel costs if more than 8 miles from Chingford E4.

I can teach at my home if that is more convenient.

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Online tutoring for all subjects is via Skype. I generally email you the work before the lesson so we are fully prepared.
Tell me about some of your current students.
Typically my students are professional people who already have a good knowledge of English but require some improvement in the standard. My students have included doctors, accountants, business managers, engineers, teachers etc.
