lessons

All lessons last 60 minutes, cost £25 and are suitable for intermediate level students or higher. (B1 CEFR+)

I have carefully designed each of my lessons with three main ideas in mind:

  1. To teach you vocabulary connected to the topic. 
     

  2. To help you feel super confident talking about the topic in English.
     

  3. To develop a really good conversation between the two of us, because we shouldn't forget that there is an art to conversation and practice makes perfect!

 

It's very easy to book a lesson, first, choose a topic for the lesson from the list below, then pick your time and date. Once payment is made, you will be emailed confirmation, including details of how to join the video call on the day.
