How do online lessons work?
I use a real-time online classroom called Zoom. There is a chat function, whiteboard and options to share audio, video and documents. It's a great interactive tool. You will need to download the software or app, but this is easy to do.
Will I get homework?
If you want it! You can either select a package that includes homework, or add it as an extra. I always recommend homework, as it gives you the opportunity to practise your new language skills. It's nothing heavy, and always relevant.
What if I'm ill?
We all get ill from time to time. Provided I have at least 24 hours' notice, I will be happy to reschedule your lesson (see terms and conditions). Unfortunately I cannot refund classes through illness, or reschedule if cancellation is within 24 hours of the agreed class time.
What equipment do I need?
All you need is a computer, laptop or tablet, a microphone, camera (this is optional) and a good internet connection. You don't need to invest in anything else and the software you need doesn't cost anything.
What results can I expect?
Your lessons will give you the tools to take your business English to the next level, with regard to fluency, grammar, vocabulary and comprehension, as well as cultural understanding. You will get out what you put in, so practice is key!
What materials do you use?
I use a mixture of textbooks, real articles, games and worksheets. And we can always work with material from your workplace too!
Are you a good teacher?
I am very experienced, both in teaching and business, but try a free consultation to see if you like me. You can also purchase a single lesson to start with, and if you are not 100% happy, I will refund your money.
Do you offer any other packages?
The packages are fixed, but if you don't want to commit to ten lessons, you can pay for five at 60% of the price. Please contact me for longer-term options, or if you have any queries.
