I lead a session based on your interests, work and hobbies. You will learn new vocabulary you won't learn in textbooks and I'll correct your errors, if you like. I have lists of topics, human resources questions, interview questions, exam speaking test questions -- you will be surprised how fast an hour can go and how much you'll enjoy talking about your life in English :-) I modulate / adjust my speaking speed and complexity to suit different people.
This session is about systematic but personalized vocabulary learning and error feedback via friendly but focused discussions. These sessions create the conditions where gaps in grammar mastery create opportunities for 'just-in-time' learning i.e. we'll spend a few minutes on grammar when and where it's needed.
Need practice? Choose this session. Speaking Practice is low stress but I do still follow the CEFR curriculum to sequence structures & topics so we never run out of ideas. 70% student talk time. NB. The focus is here is on accurate spoken communication (grammaticality over grammar, connected speech, turn-taking, pronunciation, meta-conversation, casual speech vs formal language, etc)
Need lessons / ongoing structure / homework? Choose the Bespoke session; it's the whole enchilada (readings, vocabulary, methodical grammar instruction of form, meaning and usage) This is a good option if you want someone to teach you new structures, and organize and check homework. I work within a curriculum, NOT a single textbook series.
Need a challenge? Choose the Watch Video session.
Not sure? Choose this session as a trial.
**Includes my notes (3 to 5 pages) as well as occasional vocabulary files / discussion question files (depends on the student, depends on the topic)
