Hello! My name is Stephen and I'm from Manchester in the United Kingdom.
I've been teaching English for the last 8 years although my educational background is in IT and Computer Systems. My hobbies are going to the gym, music, movies, cooking, traveling to new places and walking with my dog!
I teach English mainly to Business professionals and students wanting to pass IELTS, TOEFL and other high level English exams, however I also teach General English and Conversation classes as well.
I´m an expert English teacher with a lot of experience with students of all ages and levels and I can help students to become more fluent, gain confidence and communicate more efficiently. I love my job, I´m a very relaxed and patient person and I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world and teaching English online is a great way for me to do that.
I look forward to meeting you soon!

Experience giving Business English classes, General English classes and IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, APTIS, CELPIP, GMAT, CAE and CPE preparation courses.
Very professional teacher with wide range of experience and materials to suit whatever type of classes my students need.
I teach with a fun, friendly, dynamic and highly personalized approach. I believe that students learn faster and gain more confidence when they practice in a relaxed and friendly environment, and that's the philosophy I apply to my classes.
During the classes, we will explore as many different themes and methodologies as possible, so that the classes are interesting and dynamic, and so that the students gain as much as possible from each class.
I have helped many English students and also professionals from a wide range of careers; government workers, business executives, office workers and sales executives to medical professionals, managers and directors at plants, factories and other organizations involved in heavy industry. The classes are highly personalized to each individual students needs, and each course is highly structured to give my students a real sense that they are making progress. Together we will plan your course so that you can start improving your English straight away.
I also believe in the importance of constructive feedback and at the end of each class, provide my students with a detailed summary of what we have covered that day, areas for improvement, weaknesses, suggestions for next class, new vocabulary and pronunciation.
