Here you'll find answers to some common questions about the lessons. The best way to find out about the lessons is to take a a free trial lesson with me. Please contact me if you have any other questions and I will reply quickly.


What happens during a lesson?

Online lessons are very similar to lessons in the real world except that we use Skype to talk with each other. I use a large library of online lesson plans. These are visually attractive and all paying students receive their own login. I may also use pdf files.

What happens after the lesson?

After the lesson I will send you lesson notes with a list of new words, words for pronunciation practice and also notes about any grammar or other issues.

Can you give me homework to do?

Yes! Students who complete homework tasks usually make faster progress. However, homework is totally optional.

How do you choose the material for my lessons?

When you first start having lessons with me, I will ask you to complete an online placement test to give me an indication of your level and to find any areas you may need help with. In addition, I will also listen very carefully to the reasons you want to learn English and also what your goals are. I will then plan personalized lessons for you. 

How many lessons do I have to take?

You can take just one lesson or you can have lots of lessons. I am totally flexible and there is never any pressure to have more lessons with me.

Do you teach IELTS or other exam preparation courses?

No, sorry. At present, I don't teach any exam preparation courses.

Who can take these lessons?

Anyone who is 18 years or older and can use Skype can take a lesson with me. If you don't have Skype, please visit to download it for free. Ideally, your current English level should be pre-intermediate or above.

Can I share a lesson with a friend or family member?

Yes, this is a great way to save money and motivate each other. You should both be approximately the same level and have similar learning goals. Please contact me for more information or for prices to share lessons.

How do I pay for a lesson?

All lesson payments are by PayPal. This is the only payment option I offer. You do not need a PayPal account to use it to pay, you can pay as a guest.

May I cancel a lesson?

Yes, you can cancel or reschedule a lesson up until the scheduled lesson start time. If you do not attend a lesson without notifying me, there is a cancellation fee of 50% of the lesson fee
