    Teaching Approach

    My Lessons

    I aim to teach complete courses for learners studying English from Pre-Intermedi ate to the most advanced levels.

    I do give conversation classes, but recommend structured courses using sets of authentic and recognised books from reputable publishers. Of course, the amount of conversation we have on any topic can vary according to what the student wants.

    I concentrate on the development of all four skills through a variety of communicative tasks, while allowing for a flexibility of approach suitable for each student. Key language is regularly recycled, achieving interactive, holistic learning. The books and other materials reflect the guidelines of the Council of Europe Framework.

    I love to teach and help people, and Skype is a great way to do that. I don't work for a big company, just for myself and my students, so I can charge less and arrange lessons that suit us both best.

    Type s of lesson:

    Ge neral English
    Stud y all aspects of the language by reading, listening, writing and talking about various subjects of general interest - and those which are interesting to you. All grammar appropriate to the level of the course is covered.

    Types of lesson

    Business English
    This also deals with all aspects of English, but concentrates on business topics. It covers the same grammar as general lessons, but slightly different vocabulary.

    IELTS preparation
    I specialise in helping students prepare for IELTS, both general and academic modules. The four requirements of the exam are covered:
    Rea ding and listening concentrate on dealing with different types of question as well as improving understanding of the text.
    Speaki ng practice covers all the main topics to be found in the test, with full rehearsal of all three parts of the speaking test.
    Writin g preparation includes marking of one piece of your writing, part 1 or part 2, per lesson, helping to eliminate mistakes in grammar, construction, spelling and clarity.
    The lessons will improve your vocabulary and ability to use it in order to achieve the band score you require. I have already helped many students, mostly to get band 6 or 7, some to band 8.

    Conversatio n
    We can talk about some particular subjects in order to practise listening comprehension , pronunciation and intonation. I have a long list of questions to ask you about many topics, but you can choose what you want to discuss. Grammar and spelling are not covered well in this type of lesson, and writing skills not at all.

    Marking and improvement of writing
    I can check your written work, mark it for mistakes of any kind and return it with those errors highlighted and explained. There is no lesson given for this, just let me know when you want the marked text returned to you.

    Program Description

    I teach English online using Skype, Viber, Facebook chat or Google Hangouts.
    Li ving in Prague, I also teach face-to-face lessons in workplaces and homes of students here.

    My students are:
    * professionals , learning English for their work
    * students who need to pass English exams, including state exams, IELTS and TOEFL
    * people learning so they can move to an English-speak ing country
    * anyone who wants to improve their English by talking to an English person

    All of them get a lot from the lessons and have fun while learning - I find this is very important - and I enjoy the work too.

    I am here to help you, and your success is my job satisfaction.
    When lessons have been arranged, I will send you all the learning materials you need in the form of links to download books, audio files and other free stuff.
    Some students prefer to buy the books we use, but you need not spend anything on course materials.
    I f you can read this, then you will have no problems studying with me online. If you have problems reading this, you need my help!

    Teaching Experience

    I qualified as a teacher in 1980. More recently, I earned an additional certificate in TOEFL and spent several years in Moscow, Russia, as a teacher of English. Now I work from home in Prague with my wife, who teaches Russian as a native speaker, and basic and elementary English to Russians.
