If you’re looking for a professional polyglot who can teach you to maximize your communication skills, you’re in luck, because I am NOT one of those “digital nomads” who are just interested in funding their country-of-the-month lifestyle. My experience (decades, not months or years) learning languages & teaching teenagers & adults proves me to be a language nerd who knows how to teach. Would you like a teacher who actually knows how to learn languages — and is doing so successfully? If so, you’re the kind of student I love working with. Now, I’ve moved on to learning Hebrew and 中文, so I’m always testing and refining new strategies & tactics to benefit my students.

It's a relief to know that there is a teacher who can teach (and challenge!) a proficient speaker. Phil is able to point out anything that sounds even slightly off, despite the fact that I speak with a British accent. Our main objective, however, is improving my understanding of phonology so that I could deliver better lessons, whether I'm teaching English or Czech. Our first two lessons were very informative and pleasant. Speaking with someone who is so passionate about the subject is a delight.

这节课非常重要,它都颠覆了我以往的对英语的认知。。。之前我还以为英语每个音都要发出来呢。。。其实不用,跟我以前学的完全不一样。。。现在觉得合理多了。

Very helpful lesson, as usual Phil provided very useful comunicative tools to handle a wide of variety of situations that help me a lot to get into complex professional scenarios that require strong verbal skills. Thanks so much for keeping the high quality of your classes!

I thoroughly enjoyed today's class with Phil. He utilized an engaging article that helped me practice my American accent. The experience was enjoyable, and I can already feel a significant improvement in my accent since our first session. I also appreciated our in-depth discussion based on the article.
