My name is Nick. I am an experienced, friendly and professional teacher offering English (EFL) lessons to adults online or face-to-face. I am a native English speaker, having lived in London for many years. Lessons with me can be at times that are convenient to you, and you do not have to stick to a fixed timetable.
If you are an intermediate or advanced level learner I can help you to improve your spoken and/or written English. I believe that to improve your English quickly and efficiently it is important that your learning is enjoyable. That is why I will take time to get to know you, to find out what you want to learn and what kind of learning suits you best.
If you want to improve your English for conversation, then I will plan lessons that are focused on topics that interest you. If you need English for employment or study then I would like to know what type of work you will be doing, or what you will be studying. If you will be taking any exams then I will provide past papers that can be used for practice.
If you are living in the UK, or plan to re-locate here, I can assist you not just with the language, but also guide you in terms of British culture, politics and history, as well as give information regarding the practical aspects of life in the UK.
In lessons I use a range of teaching methods and resources. I provide digital textbooks, and use video and audio materials.
On request I am happy to provide further details of my qualifications and experience.
I also offer a proofreading service for essays, dissertations, business documents, marketing materials etc.
In addition I can offer Sociology tuition for adult learners (18 or over) from beginner / general interest level up to First Degree level.
Please contact me for a free and informal discussion / conversation.
See you soon – I hope!
