ようこそ - Welcome


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.
I am your trainer, so I will find ways to motivate you, encourage you and also push you to your limits.

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.
