What's my method?


As a trainer, educator and English teacher I know that there are two things that are very important when giving private English classes.

The objectives of the student

I need to know why you want to learn English.

Is it for:

  • work
  • travel
  • general conversations
  • or simply pleasure?
  • is very important.

This is important to know as this will dictate how we conduct the class.

I also need to know if you want purely conversation classes, grammar, or a mix of both.

Then we need to see what topics we can and can't talk about.  I will never talk about any topic that a student feels uncomfortable with.

So that's the first important thing I need to know.

The second is

Are we a good fit?

No matter how good a teacher I am, if you and I don't get along then it's not going to work.  I believe there is a teacher for everyone, and just because I get along with you does not mean that I will be a good fit for another student.

This is why I offer a free 15 minute interview with each and every student.

Why do I do a free 15 minute before taking you on as a private English class student?

Simple - if we don't "gel" then you won't learn, the learning experience will be painful. You won't enjoy it and neither will I! And who wants to make learning a difficult experience?

Schedule an interview

Scheduling and interview for your private English classes is simple.

In the right hand bottom area of the screen you will see an icon - just click on it, and select Schedule Meeting, you will then see my available interview times.

Select a time that suits (the timezone is set to Central European Time) and then book a call with me.

Book a class

You can chat to me online - just look for the icon on the bottom right hand corner (if it's not already opened up!)

I took a few lessons with Richard before coming to London to start working. It was very helpful as we could work on my weaknesses in a more focused way. He was very dynamic and pleasant. I highly recommend him.
