Über Mich

Improve your English for travel, work, research, or study!

Hello! I’m Alison. My lessons will help you to:
*communicate better in English 😲
*become more confident 😀
*improve your fluency and pronunciation😝

Choose from my courses below👇 or tell me what you want to achieve and I will design your lessons. Our classes will be focused and useful. Together we will create a safe, relaxed space where it's OK to make mistakes.

***My experience***
As well as being a teacher, I am a writer and editor. I know the English language very well. I'm trained in psychotherapy, so I'm patient, encouraging and supportive. I try to get the best out of you.

I grew up near London but I’ve lived in northern England and the USA, and now I live in Barcelona, Spain. I can speak Spanish and I’m learning Catalan. A long time ago I learned French and German, but I can’t remember much now. I know how it feels to learn a foreign language!
