Take your first lesson with me, then you will know what I can do for you. IELTS or Job Interview coming up soon? - start preparing now ! I have 12 years of teaching experience and half a lifetime working in the financial sector, I look forward to assisting you.
Currently, when I am not teaching online here at Cafetalk, I am teaching IELTS exam preparation, face to face with local people, who need a top score to immigate or study abroad.
What I propose for you is a unique lesson course, designed specifically for your current level of English with the aim of bringing you up to a professional level.
Direct, everyday English, self confidence, presentation and fluent speech are the goal.
We will always use interesting material, you will notice that many of my lessons are "student specific", this enables us to study around topics that are of special interest to you.
I am a skills trainer and this is how I approach English. Language can be broken down into two main skills, the mental skill which is vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, syntax, and the physical skill which is speech. Both these skills need to be mastered.
The only way to master the physical speaking skill is by practice and excercise. Muscle memory is involved, so to get the best results you need to train often. 小打も積もれば大木を倒す I am your trainer, so I will find ways to motivate you, encourage you and also push you to your limits. ローマは一日にしてならず – だんだん上手になってくるよ！
When you buy a lesson from me, I give you more than just the minutes you pay for, I give you materials, I give you follow up, I give you self study exercises, I motivate you to do the self study - In return for my extra effort, I expect extra effort from you.
I have held down some interesting jobs, ranging from an analyst/programmer in the financial sector to a charter boat captain and a spcialist skills trainer. Having travelled and lived in many countries (South Africa, Britain, Belgium, Germany, USA, Hong Kong, Bahrain, Brazil) I am confident in my ability to communicate well with foreign students.
Thank you, and I look forward to meeting you. ありがとうございました
I'm enjoyable talking climate change including security so on. we need to talk this problem how to solve with each country through UN.
If US realize has own responsibility to have meeting together that force to resolve this problem much easier.

TOEICのスコアが900点手前で伸び悩んでいたので、レッスンで相談をしたところ、TipsとVocabularyリストを送ってもらい、合わせてListening と Readingの回答テクニックを実践で教えていただきました。おかげ様で2019.12月のTOEICテストで925点を達成しました。 I was not able to mark over 900 on TOEIC. I asked Mr. Ian how to improve my TOEIC score in the lesson and then he sent me the Tips and the Vocabulary list of TOEIC. He also offered listening and reading practice. Thanks to that, I was able to get 925 on TOEIC last December. Thank you so much.
