What is a 1-to-1 lesson?
It is a 45-minute private session in which you will have my undivided attention to ensure maximum time utilization so that the whole session will be focused on your needs.
First, I will help you to draw up a study plan based on an initial interview. This analysis is important to define what linguistic elements we will work on in a personalized way. During the lesson, you will practice conversation and I can give you feedback on your performance. I can also clarify grammar questions and focus on strengthening weak points. There is no registration fee or material cost. I will provide quality class material according to the demand and share all content of the session on a PDF file.
To achieve your goals, you can bring your own English books or I can share something from my Google Drive library. It includes material focused on grammar, reading, writing, speaking, listening, business English, TOEFL, and IELTS preparation, and more!
Why Zoom sessions?
Videoconferencing is great because it is safer, cheaper, and highly convenient for both of us. Current technology already allows us to have the same experience as a face-to-face meeting without the need for displacement. To make it happen, I use Zoom which is the fastest and most reliable free video conferencing software on the market. It allows audio, video, and screen sharing even in slower connections.
I offer one-to-one English sessions. This model has many advantages over traditional classes. Here are some of the key features:
You define the frequency and timing of your lessons. There is no need for fixed schedules but they can be also arranged.
We are free to work with any methods and materials which will be adapted to your pace and style of learning.
I will consider your goals (academic, professional, or tourism), your current English knowledge, and your availability in order to help you develop the skills needed to master the target language.
