English conversation with correction and fluency help

I have been teaching English for over 12 years, and thoroughly enjoy my work. I work on a teacher training programme in Chengdu teaching Chinese-English Teachers. I also teach Business English and have one-on-one classes with students of all ages, backgrounds, and levels.
I also teach IELTS speaking test preparation. In all speaking classes, I'll help improve your pronunciation, fluency and help you speak more like a native English speaker. I can also help with all aspects of Business English, especially interview preparation, and presentation performance.
Experience: 12 years
I teach English by giving the student a level test, then combine their results with their goals to personalise the student's lessons.
I am also keen to give homework because I know through my own experience as a language learner, that 1 lesson a week may sound good, but doesn't really give any real improvement.
I see myself as a facilitator, someone who can direct and encourage the students to learn what they need to reach their goals, whether these goals are passing an exam, acing a job interview, or chatting to others in English on holiday.
When you learn with me, you do homework, and then in class we practice what you have learned during that homework. Lessons are expensive, so the student should spend their money on time with the teacher, not time with a book.
