My name is Gary and I've been teaching English online for the past year. My primary focus is teaching Busines English to individuals worldwide who require a high proficiency of English for their job, career or profession.
When meeting you, my goal is to understand specifically why you need to learn English so that our class time can be structured in the most effective way. By customizing classes and moving towards specific goals, students are more quickly able to achieve the level of English they require.
Options for study include using Business English coursebooks, business articles and real material from students' jobs. We can work on any business topic which is important to you.
Additionally, I have experience working with students on IELTS exam preparation and specifically, the Writing section. I can work with you by reviewing your writing, providing corrections and feedback and suggesting strategies which could help improve your score. My method has resulted in the success of many students who achieved the scores which they needed.
I look forward to meeting you and beginning our journey towards achieving your goals.
