This is what I specialise in and can help you with. I'm a native British English teacher living in Lima, Peru.
Teaching English since 2010, I've developed a profound knowledge of English Pronunciation. This is not my hobby, it's my full time job and passion. Hence, the students get results and fast. My regular student, Christian from Madrid, Spain, says: "Great lesson. Im really progressing with my English. Great to have knowledge about how native speaks. People have noticed a lot of difference in my english since I started to have classes with Andrew. Looking forward to the next class. Highly recommended!"
In our lessons, there will be a strong focus on pronunciation. Our main goal is for you to ultimately communicate better in English through improved pronunciation and listening skills.
I hold a Cambridge CELTA certificate and I've taught many students of many nationalities including Spanish, Chinese, and Russian. Noc from Hong Kong says: "I had my first class of pronunciation awareness course finally. Andrew gave me the most engaging and fun lesson I've ever had on italki. In the class, we learnt the basics of pronunciation. Andrew gave a lot of vivid and funny examples to help me understand how English sounds are made. By doing so, I learn more than just the 'what', but the 'how' and 'why' as well. The class was concluded by useful resources, including notes and mobile app, to help me understand more and practice on my own. Highly recommended course."
I look forward to meeting you and inspiring you soon!
