FAQ

How many lessons should I have?

This is different for everyone. It depends on two main things; your current level of English and your learning aims. If you have a specific aim or target, such as an interview or exam then you will probably need more frequent lessons over a shorter period. If you are wanting to improve your level of English over a longer time period I would recommend lessons twice to three times a week. But, the choice is yours.

As long as you can give me basic information about yourself and what your reasons are for wanting to improve your English your level is good enough. I teach a wide range of students from pre-intermediate to near fluent speakers.

Will I be given homework?

This is your choice. I am happy to give you as much or as little as you ask me for. I will check your homework before a lesson and we will go through any problems or corrections together in the session.

Do I need to use a webcam?

No, there is no need to use a webcam. Some students choose to but it is not necessary. I very seldom use one, in order to build listening skills more quickly and to place maximum focus on the language.

What happens if I am late for my lesson?

If you think that you may be late for your lesson you can Skype or email me to let me know. In this case I will wait until you arrive. If you do not let me know that you will be late I will wait for 15 minutes. After this time I will be unavailable and the session will be lost. Unfortunately, missed session time cannot be made up later.

Can I cancel a session?

Yes, you can cancel your session with a full refund as long as you give 12 hours notice. Unfortunately, if you cancel less than 12 hours before your scheduled time you will lose the lesson.
