Über Mich

*I teach English to adult students. Unfortunately I don't teach children*. Please send me a message about your learning goals, before booking a lesson. Are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced level? I can help you! Do you want to start speaking English immediately? Would you like to practise speaking in English, but feel too nervous? Do you want to learn with a patient teacher, who can help you feel more confident speaking English, in a relaxed and welcoming environment? Do you want your mistakes to be corrected? I can offer you all of those things! *Mira abajo para información en español*.

I'm Mary, from Manchester, in the UK. I've been teaching English as a foreign language for 7 years and am CELTA certified.

I teach every level of English, from beginner to advanced level. I teach all nationalities, but I specialise in teaching hispanohablantes. I'm very familiar with the typical mistakes Spanish speakers make in English, such as with pronunciation and how to overcome them.

My classes focus on:

- speaking and conversation
- pronunciation
- listening
- reading
- writing
- grammar
- phonetics
- colloquial language


My teaching style is individualised. I like to get to know my students and plan lessons around their strengths and weaknesses, interests and learning goals. I provide interactive classes, with the main emphasis on getting you to speak English as much as you can immediately.

My lessons are welcoming, with the aim of you feeling as comfortable as possible. I am a very patient teacher as well.

I have taught students from all over the world, including Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America. I have also lived and worked in Colombia and Spain, teaching English as a foreign language.

I understand the challenges involved in learning a foreign language. I have been learning Spanish for a number of years, but know that with time, patience and a good teacher, it's possible to reach the level you are aiming for!

**Unfortunately I don't teach children, because it isn't an area I specialise in.**

¡Hola a todos! Soy Mary de Manchester, Reino Unido. Llevo 7 años enseñando inglés como lengua extranjera y soy profesora certificada (CELTA). Tengo mucha experiencia dictando clases a los hispanohablantes y entiendo los problemas comunes en que se fallan con el inglés, por ejemplo la pronunciación. Dicto clases desde nivel principiante hasta avanzado.. Soy muy paciente y mis clases son muy interactivas. La enfasis en mis clases es que los estudiantes hablan en inglés todo lo posible inmediatamente y que sigan mejorando. íSaludos!

** No dicto clases a niños**
