Hello! My Name's Ray Pitcher and I'm from Manchester in the United Kingdom. I'm 24 years old. My interests include travel, music and film. I'm also a graduate in Sociology from the University of Nottingham. I have spent the previous year teaching English in South Korea. I am now back home and teach English online. I am currently offering a trial lesson where we can get together and discuss the areas you want to improve your English. From there I will make a course suited to you, with lots of feedback to help you get better each week! I am confident in teaching all levels and look forward to seeing your improvements!
- I am fully qualified ESL instructor with 120 hour TEFL qualification (TEFL.org.uk)
- I also have over a years experience teaching in the classroom in South Korea for 30 hours every week. The students varied from ages 5 - 18 and the level of English ranged from teaching students to read, to preparing them for internationally recognised exams for foreign universities (The TEFL IBT).
- Finally, since returning from Korea I have been teaching Chinese and Taiwanese adults online for a company based in Taiwan. This experience has made me very comfortable with teaching online affectively and keeping the lessons interesting! the clientele varies vastly in ability and has left me well practiced with all levels of students. So no matter what level you are I can help you improve!
My general approach centres around student satisfaction and development - in making you enjoy the lessons whilst seeing constant improvements! The trial lesson will revolve around you stating what area you want to improve in and me then making a series of lessons to help you towards your goal. I will also give you positive feedback on other areas I think you could work on to help you get even better.
My lessons are aimed to keep you working well and getting better every time whilst also having fun with English. I will send you videos or reading texts aimed at your needs and interests to view on your own, and then we can discuss them in class for half of the lesson, followed by another half of further study in areas you want to improve in and where I think you could get better in.
Ultimately, my aim is to help you improve. I love to see students grow and get better - that's why I teach. I want you to be that student who excels in mastering English. I hope you book a trial lesson and we can make a start together.
