I am a 40-year-old, native, qualified tutor of English as a foreign language, who also tutors French, Spanish, Thai and acoustic guitar - having studied these languages, lived in Thailand, and played guitar since primary school. I do proofreading too, and help with other areas of English writing, reading and speaking.
Experience & qualifications:
• 20 years helping people improve their English
• a TESOL Certificate from Trinity College London (recognised around the world)
• a UK university degree (BSc)
• 4 years self-employed tutoring and proofreading
• 8 months employed in private schools
• students aged 4 to 50+ (children, teenagers and adults)
• UK, Asian, European, African, South American students
I will ask you what you want, check your level to see what you need, and then prepare lessons and activities for you. I will adapt to you, your requests and your learning style.
I may use all kinds of materials - on paper, CD, video or online, and everyday things - as well as simply explaining and practising things.
I also do English proofreading - we can look at your work together, or you can email it to me and I will return it with grammar, punctuation, spelling and vocabulary corrections (or suggestions/questions when it is not clear).
Stephen is very supportive and adjusts the lessons to my pace. I feel challenged whilst at the same time able to speak in a safe environment where I know my mistakes will be corrected and my learning will progress. Thank you Stephen
Makes you feel comfortable,Very calm with a good knowledge and lot of background experience.
Stephen is an excellent English tutor. He has helped me to improve my English speaking around what I want to focus on job interviews and work related language skills. I strongly recommend him to any student who wants a tailored support and dedicated attention.
