About my Classes
My classes are structured around each student's individual learning goals and I encourage my students to play an active role in their own learning. In my classes, the student speaks at least 80% of the time. I provide detailed feedback during and after each lesson. I also send all class materials to students before each lesson so that they can pre-study, and thus devote all of their precious class time to speaking!
I firmly believe that regular speaking practice is the best way to develop the vocabulary needed for social situations, to increase motivation levels, and to build confidence in your target language. I have included some more information about my lessons below.
Business English skills are becoming increasingly more important for employees in our globalized society. My classes will greatly improve your ability to communicate in corporate settings by focusing on essential business vocabulary, grammatical structures and business strategy. I have been working on my materials for many years and have a comprehensive database of lessons for you to choose from. Of course, all courses and lessons will be adapted to suit your needs.
I offer structured, interactive lessons on Business Meetings, Telephone English, Marketing, Sales, Negotiation, Corporate Culture, Management, Presentations and much more. Whatever your business background and may be, I have materials that can be adapted to your learning needs.
I also have extensive experience preparing students for job, visa and internship interviews. I regularly consult with several colleagues with HR backgrounds to stay up to date on what exactly employers are looking for when hiring new employees.
If you are hoping to improve your IELTS test score I have considerable experience preparing students for the exams. Again, all lessons are sent to students before each class so that you have time to prepare. My feedback is detailed and based on the grading criteria in the exam.
If you have any questions please feel free to send me a message and I can send you some sample lessons. Even better, just book a trial lesson and let’s get started!
