What is included in the price for every lesson?
PDFs for student books, workbooks, grammar books, and vocabulary books.
All of my students have free access to the hundreds of TEFL books that I have collected over the years. They also have free access to all the study guides that I have authored.
Feedback given after every class
I send every student a list of mistakes that came up in class, and I also provide a list of new vocabulary that I would like the student to try to memorize.
Written work (up to 2 standard essays per homework) is always marked and corrected for every new class.
The written work could be an email from work or a formal essay that is from a written exam.
My English courses are aimed at enthusiastic students that want to sharpen their grammar and boost their vocabulary.
I also provide English courses for students interested in taking TEFL exams (e.g. IELTS, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE) and UK state exams (11 plus, GCSE, A level)
