About Tim

Hello. I am a native English speaker and I have been working as a professional teacher of English since 2005. Since 2010, I have mostly taught online. I am a very experienced teacher who can adapt lessons to your needs and interests and make them fun. I can help you to build your skills and confidence in English in a supportive and friendly environment.

The main aim of my courses is to increase the student's confidence by improving their ability in the language. I believe that the key to this is to increase the student's ability by studying and practising language structures, and how they are used in real life. I use the communicative method to teach grammar, and I like to do lots of written and oral exercises in order to provide as much actual practice as possible.

I have lots of resources and they are very good for online teaching. I use the most common reference books, and for a course book, I use, and would always recommend, the Longman/BBC SpeakOut series of books.

If you would like more information, please don't hesitate to contact me. We can have a no pressure informal chat to see if what I offer is right for you. Choosing a teacher is a very important decision, and I believe it is essential to have a strong working relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to speak to you soon!
