What can I expect from a first lesson?
We will start by getting to know each other a little and you will tell me what your goals are for learning English. You will take a standard English level test. I will also evaluate your pronunciation, speaking and listening skills. based on this information I will suggest a course plan which we will discuss. I welcome your propositions.
Then we will decide on the timetable that fits your lifestyle. I will give you advice on improvement and answer all your questions about the course or how I teach.
How many lessons do I need a week?
After the test, I will give a suggestion of how many hours of lessons and homework you will need to do a week. However these are recommendations and you can book as many lessons as you would like.
What happens after the payment through the website?
After receiving your payment through the website, I will get a notification. I will then send you an email with instructions or if you have booked a lesson, I will give you slots for when we can arrange your first lesson.
Can I cancel or reschedule my lessons?
I'd like to encourage you not to cancel your lessons because it affects your motivation. You can reschedule your lessons to a different day. If you notify me about rescheduling for at least 24 hours ahead, you will not be charged. However you will be charged if you notify within less than 24 hours before the lesson is booked.*
*Exceptional circumstances such as sudden illness or death of relatives. Proof should be provided.
Where can I have my lessons from?
You can take your lessons from any place in the world, as long as you have a decent internet connection. Lost of my students take their lessons during their holidays or while they travel for their business. You can even have lessons on your lunch break from a cafeteria.
How long does a lesson last?
You can book as many hours a week as you like. The minimum time for a lesson is 60 minutes. You can also book 90, 120 or 150 minutes for a single lesson.
Do I have to do my homework?
I always recommend some homework for you to do by the end of each lesson. However it is your decision whether to follow my recommendations or not. The researchers show that people who complete their homework progress much faster in comparison to those who do not do their homework at all.
The lesson will progress regardless of whether the homework is done or not. We will always have something to practise or work on. Don't feel guilty about not doing your homework.
I can't speak English. Can we have lessons?
Yes. I am a CELTA and TESOL qualified English teacher for speakers of other languages. I am qualified to teach any level student regardless of their ability to speak or comprehend English. Your course plan depends on your level and what mistakes you make in English.
