Tell me about some of your current students.
I have a very conscientious Spanish student who is determined to impriove her pronunciation. We work a lot on her sounds and she is doing very well. She also wants to improve her grammar and writing.
An English gentleman is taking lessons of Russian as he is going to visit Russia soon and wants to be able to converse and read basic info. He used to torture himself with academic grammar books but now has agreed to change his approach to learning and finds it effective.
I am delighted that I left happy memories and some of my former students have asked me to teach them privately. Two ladies from Eastern Europe are serious about their career opportunities and are working hard on their English. Their speaking and listening skills being good, they want much more than the basics. At the moment English Grammar is at the centre of their attention, and they are improving their reading and writing skills.
Do you have a personal message for students?
If you like to achieve then I am a tutor for you. I can help you set some language goals and achieve them. Being a non-native speaker gives me an advantage because I know what you are going through. I understand why you find English Tenses and Articles difficult, and I can help you on the way to better English. Letters from GPs, your job contract and terms and conditions of your letting agent can actually be understood without the help of your friend or Google Translator.
