Do you need to speak and/or write in English?
Do you struggle with speaking in front of native speakers?
Do you find it difficult to write an email or letter for work?
Would you like to be confident in your abilities and be able to communicate with friends and colleagues?
These are the skills I specialize in in English.
I've been teaching full time since 2013. Working full time allows me to make sure my students get the results they want.
"It's a very good experience because Louise is an enthusiastic teacher. She knows how to get her students to keep talking in English in the session - I talked a lot today." Sophie, Taiwan
In our sessions we will focus on the language YOU need, whether this is for your work, to pass an exam, talk with international friends or any other reason you have. There will be an emphasis on speaking and/or writing and our main goal will be to build your confidence in using English in any situation.
Trial lesson - What happens?
Once you book a trial lesson with me, I will send you an English level test, this will allow me to see your current level of English ahead of our trial. During the trial, I will ask you questions that will allow me to assess your speaking skills and give you the chance to tell me the areas you feel you need to improve on. I will also give you my thoughts on your English learning action plan. This will include many things for you to practice every day. I firmly believe you will see greater improvements in your English when you use it every day.
I hold certificates in TEFL, TESOL and CELTA and I've taught hundreds of learners worldwide. I can't wait to meet you and help you reach your goals with English, as I did with:
