ONE on ONE English Conversation coach and tutor
TESOL English teaching certificate.
Bachelor of Science honours Degree in Horticulture.
My experience in teaching English began in 1990 while working as head of staff in the Horticultural industry. Many students of many nationalities would come to work with horticulture in England in the hopes of learning English. To help these foreign students and my English speaking staff with communication I started daily one hour after work group English classes, these lessons continued for many years. In 2003 I moved to Spain and have been teaching Spanish students English conversationin privately in my own home. I later studied for the TESOL certificate in teaching English to become a qualified tutor.
Experience: 15 years
Hi my name is Colin I am a native born Englishman with a University Degree. I am an English language coach, not just an English tutor. I focus on English conversation to teach English naturaly and easily. I encourage my students to use the English they do know. Building their vocabulary and pronunciation and how to use grammar easily which helps to build on their confidence and proficiency and, importantly, at their own pace. My classes are informal and relaxed. My goal is to teach my students how to speak English the way people speak the language in England. In the first lesson I like to create a profile of my students, based on what their goals and interests are and their level of English at the time.
