No problem! With me, you will study grammar lightly to ensure you enjoy the English classes. On the whole, I look at grammar only when errors are made during conversation. The amount of grammar studied will of course depend on your level and it is personalised to you so you are not wasting time and energy studying useless grammar which so many students do. - I am trilingual: Being that I speak French and Spanish fluently, I know better than most what it takes to learn a language and the problems you may endure.

I encourage you to converse as much as possible as this is usually the main objective of my clients. - Possibility of a personal visit: I often personally visit students if I am in their country. Then you would get to speak English for free over coffee or a meal for example. - I have a written an English grammar ebook: This book was designed to help Spanish speakers learn more effectively and more quickly. It is called 101 common errors Spaniards make when speaking English. I include excerpts of the grammar from this book in every class to ensure you are progressing every class with your grammar knowledge! - Business English: My first degree was a business degree and I have professional experience in banking, tourism, and the property industry.

Mark Davies MA PG (dip), BA (hons) RECOMMENDATIONS: "Tengo 42 años y he estado estudiando ingles toda mi vida, clases particulares, academia de inglés, cursos online, inmersión en UK, etc... Hace dos meses empecé las clases de inglés vía Skype con Mark. Al principio fue duro, en lugar de avanzar tenía la sensación de retroceder pero, sorprendentemente, varias semanas después la mejora empezó a ser impresionante. Los errores escritos y orales empezaron a disminuir, mi fluidez oral y escrita mejoró pero el mayor logro ha sido en la comprensión oral. Nuestras clases son fluidas y mi dificultad de entender a Mark es prácticamente 0. Además, el 99% de mi trabajo es en inglés. Hasta ahora tenía que esforzarme enormemente para poder seguir las conversaciones. Desde hace dos semanas mi nivel de comprensión ha aumentado considerablemente y me siento mucho más cómoda y relajada". "En resumen, estoy encantada con el sistema, en mi caso los resultados han sido visibles a muy corto plazo. Además, me gustaría destacar la comodidad que supone realizar las clases en casa, así como la flexibilidad de horario. Awesome!!!" Montse Sandoval, Barcelona, España "I am grateful for having done an English online course with Mark and I totally recommend him. Today my English is a lot more fluent and I have certainly noted a big difference in my communication when I am abroad. One of the main qualities of my native teacher was the personal focus and Mark definitely knew what we had to concentrate on so I could make big progress in little time" Maite Gonzalez, Madrid, Spain "Las clases de inglés por Skype con Mark, mi profesor, se me pasan volando, no me suponen ningún esfuerzo y noto que estoy mejorando mucho el speaking, mi punto débil. Si lo que quieres es hablar inglés, te recomiendo las clases de inglés vía Skype al 100%!" David Amilibia, Pamplona, Spain Please note, I don´t teach beginner levels (A1-A2). I do pre-intermediate or above (B1, B2, C1, C2).

Hi! I am a native English speaker from Boston, Massachusetts. I have experience teaching English to all ages of students from beginning to advance level. I have taught in academic settings as well less formal community settings. I am offering lessons in general, conversational, and business English as well as test preparation (TOEFL, IELTS). My teaching style can be described as relaxed and fun creating an environment where students feel comfortable to speak and practice a new language. I am also available to proofread and edit documents. I have experience in proofreading and editing university essays and research papers, business emails, business presentations, CVs and English teaching materials.
I am a TEFL qualified English teacher with over five years' English teaching experience. I have taught English in Asia and Europe from beginner's to advanced level. I have also taught undergraduate courses at universities in Australia. I have a Master's Degree and a PhD in Anthropology. I believe in teaching English in an interactive, creative way which meets my student's needs. I look forward to engaging with my students at whatever level they are at and working with them to meet their goals. Since each student's language journey is unique, I endeavor to be sensitive to my student's abilities and desires. I strive to make my lessons fun, interesting and rewarding. In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling and writing. I look forward to getting to know my new students!
Hello my-students-to-be and those not-going-to-be !!😀 Let me start by sharing some general information about myself ...I am a native speaker of English and Greek. I was born in Boston, USA , was raised in Greece. I have been teaching for the past 5 years, both adults and kids in tutoring classes or one to one. I am of the belief that people should enjoy what they are doing in order to learn it, so I try to add as much interaction as possible, on topics which interest my students. I believe I have succeeded as a tutor when I see my students enjoy what they are doing and send me messages or call me in order to inform me that they understood a movie without reading subtitles or taking part in an English conversation with others and not facing a problem. That's all for now, you can pm me for more questions or book a trial. Talk to you later or bye !! 😀😀😀
Hello everyone, my name is Carl and I was born in Canada. I have a passion for teaching, and believe teaching like learning should be fun to get the most out of it. I focus on Pronunciation using Phonetics (what does it sound like). Most of my students struggle, because they are still using their native sounds while speaking English, which is why they usually have a strong accent. In my classes we keep it simple and go back to basics, discussing the sounds that each letter of the English Alphabet make, it’s Vowels and Consonants, and then moving on to Syllables and how that changes the Intonation of their speaking. Speaking is sound, and sound is physical, it is all about the parts of the mouth being in the correct position, so if the parts of your mouth are in the same position as mine, we will make the same sound. You don’t have to think about it, it just happens. There are 26 letters in the English Alphabet, but there are a minimum of between 39 and 48 sounds, depending on which accent you wish to use. It is much easier for you to memorize 48 sounds than it is to memorize 4,000 words! Once you do this, you will have a neutral accent, and then you can decide how you wish to change these to sound more American, English or Australian etc. So if you are determined to improve your English Language Skills, and you are looking for a teacher who believes that teaching and learning are about having fun while learning in order to produce the best results I hope you will contact me, and give me an opportunity to help you achieve your goals. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
